  • 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

Go on ahead
Don't you wait for me
It's too late for me
There's no guarantee
How I'll feel
There's something wrong inside my brain
Something that I can't contain
Wish I could explain

The radio
Argues with my inner voice
Nothing more than background noise
Funny what the mind enjoys
When it's wild
Panic at the grocery store
Everything is a such a chore
What was it like before?

I pretend to hide
A light inside
But it's just one more lie
Don't give a damn about me
My eyes have dried
Mourning the light inside

I smile and say
Everything's alright with me
So if you want to fight with me
If you want reality
Get in line
Stuck on every simple choice
Things that used to bring me joy
Now just broken toys

Can't fall asleep
Can't focus on TV
But it's even worse for me
To let my mind run free
An empty man
With time on his hands

If there's something I could do
To make things easier for you
Nothing's too much
For someone I love
Yes I can still love
Yes I can still love.

about

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.
