  • The next five orders include the white label CD-R That (Neil Delta Mixes). Why five? Only five copies were made!

    Majesty and Lucky Ago were only available on CD to Patreon supporters for a limited time, and Color Theory presents Depeche Mode has been out of print for years, but I've still got copies of the other 8 full-length albums.

    There are only a handful remaining of both Life's Fairytale and Tuesday Song. Adjustments is signed and numbered, with less than 100 copies left.

    includes: Adjustments, The Sound, The Thought Chapter, Something Beautiful, Life's Fairytale, Perfect Tears, Tuesday Song, Sketches in Grey

    Adjustments, The Sound, and The Thought Chapter are packaged in 6-panel Digipaks. The rest are in white jewel cases, except for Sketches, which is in a standard jewel case.

    Pick up these relics of a bygone era before they're gone! You may not even have a CD player anymore (I don't), but there's some fantastic artwork and design, and the lyrics are included for every album.

lyrics

This is my unfinished symphony
Yes it's a little pretentious
But humor me
Try not to laugh
I'll fix it in a second
In the second draft
Like a promise from a lifelong friend
The process has a beginning but no clear end
This isn't math

It's hard enough to collect my thoughts
With all the rules of behavior
The shoulds and oughts that guide our ways
Confused like hamsters circling
In a dead end maze
Wrapped up in cosmic uncertainty
Our actions trailing off into infinity
Like summer rays

We're still imperfect but we've grown
A broken contraption
Flesh and bone
Making it up as we go along
In formless fleeting moments of magnificence
Remember nothing we are is set in stone
We're still imperfect but we've grown
Homeless at heart
Everything is temporary
Chasing perfection on the road to damnation
Without a script or storyline
Forever a work in progress

Sometimes I catch myself mid-mistake and wonder
"If I twist this that way will it break?"
And then it does
Don't ask me why I did it
I'll say "just because"
Failure to act or participate
Is like expecting to high five the hand of fate
In latex gloves

Better to ask for forgiveness than permission
Better when faced with a proposition
Start with yes
There will be time to question
Time to second guess
Sometimes the mind has to disengage
Or fear will rattle the bars of your mental cage
And stage your death.

Color Theory Huntington Beach, California

Somehow I never outgrew the 80s.

All major releases are here, including several not on Spotify. I also release at least one new song on Patreon every month, which you won't find here or anywhere else.
