about

Premier album long format pour les orléanais, pétri de multiples influences sans nécessairement marcher dans les pas d'un groupe ou d'une scène en particulier. Citons tout de même Pretty Girls Make Graves, Fugazi, Biffy Clyro, Cursive ou Standstill histoire de situer le propos de DevonMiles. Enregistré par Pit Samprass (Burning Heads) et masterisé par Nick Zampiello et Rob Gonnella (Torche, Against Me!, Cave In, Isis, Kid Kilowatt…), l’album sort en septembre 2012 au format CD et numérique sur Opposite Prod, label des Burning Heads.

Track Name: Mr. Advice
There’s something weird
And I don’t know what
I really like you
But that’s enough
Don’t you get the difference
My needs equal your pocket money
You make no difference
Sometimes that’s a quality

And you draw a circle
You don’t want us inside
You talk like my uncle or my dad
You’re mister advice
You’re like my uncle or my dad
You’re mister advice

A talent without humility is nothing
Please stop pretending you know everything about anything

And you draw a circle
You don’t want us inside
You talk like my uncle or my dad
You’re mister advice
You’re like my uncle or my dad
You’re mister advice

A talent without humility is nothing
You can’t pretend to know everything about anything
Friends are made for caring and sharing
What I don’t... have enough balls to shout
I hope you won’t... ever hear me out
Now I’m swearing... I’ll always sing it
This kind of feeling... already scares me
Friends are made for caring and sharing
Track Name: Golden Cage
I’m trapped in a golden cage
Too far to feel concerned about this growing pain
The view is blurry from above
But now the shit is getting closer

It doesn’t help me to know how to chase this guilty feeling
It doesn’t help me find out how to turn a deaf ear again

This is no question of ignorance
We’re crawling in information here
As hard as anyone’s confession
I thank my friends who accept the mission

It doesn’t help me to know how to chase this guilty feeling
It doesn’t help me find out how to turn a deaf ear again
Track Name: The Journey Is The Reward
I’ve never been good at breakouts
I barely did this myself once
Fingers crossed for glory hopes
Acting only for the cause
I still remember that evening
Tears held back and rain falling
We even weren’t all there to fire you from the band

We’ll never lower the arms
We will stick to what we’ve got
The journey is the reward
You’ll never understand that

Your ego’s under attack
You don’t know how to react

I wrote you this goodbye anthem
I hope you’re not too far to hear it
These are a bunch of sentences aimed at a friend or so-called dick
I don’t wanna change anybody ‘cause some did try to change me
But it’s your fault if it’s over
You can’t betray a betrayer

We’ll never lower the arms
We will stick to what we’ve got
The journey is the reward
You’ll never understand that
Your ego’s under attack
You don’t know how to react
Track Name: Gimme More Sound
Are you trying the best you can to keep discovering new sound?
Our content provided on demand might be a way to solve your problem

Here in your city
Close to your home
There is a band who’s rehearsing
Here in your city
Next to your job
There’s a show you are missing

Gimme more, gimme more, gimme more sound
Seems like it’s free of charge today
Gimme more, gimme more, gimme more sound
You wouldn’t buy it anyway
Gimme more, gimme more, gimme more sound

Radio keeps broadcasting the same
The same old shit mixed with new as well
There are so many ways to run from this hell
But will you make the first step, take the first step?

Here in your city
Close to your home
There’s a band who’s rehearsing
Here in your city
Next to your job
There’s a show you are missing

Gimme more, gimme more, gimme more sound
Seems like it’s free of charge today
Gimme more, gimme more, gimme more sound
You wouldn’t buy it anyway
Gimme more, gimme more, gimme more sound
Track Name: Dead Pixels
Enlarge your vision because we’re on the side
Enlightenment forgot us all
Would you support a team that always loses?
Don’t you support a team that always loses?

In my opinion we are a kind of scars
A few dead pixels in the background
I really hope that you know what you’re losing
I hope that you know what you’re losing

Like a fly on your HD screen
Think twice when you squash it
And when we disappear
You won’t even notice

Do you prefer watching?
Do we make you laugh?
At least we’re trying
You could help us out
Caring for who’s behind and always help them
Caring for who’s behind and always help them

We’re science-fiction
We’re shooting stars
A few dead pixels in the background
I really hope that you know what you’re losing
I hope that you know what you’re losing

A fucking fly on your HD screen
Think twice when you squash it
And when we disappear
You won’t even notice
Track Name: Lack Of Time (Is A Good Place To Hide)
Will you make some sense to those past events
Nothing ever seems to bore you
Nothing ever seems to frighten you
Who am I turning into?

You work all day for no reason
You surely miss some vacation
A single life is not enough

Where can I buy some time to spend?

Time... lack of time is a good place to hide

You work all day for no reason
You surely miss some vacation
A single life is not enough

Where can I buy some time to spend?
Track Name: Tommy Gavin
It's lying inside of me
I carry it everyday
One false step and in a second I would die
Just like hundreds of friends of mine

I'm feeling secure
I don't need help
I can't tell if i'm sure if I'd really give my life
Just like thousands of friends of mine

A new addiction and then what's coming next?
I can deal with fire
I can deal with fire
Counting on me you promised me to death
As far as I remember
I can deal with fire
I can deal with fire

It's always been like this
It still goes on like this
It always ends up like the second I would die
Among hundreds of friends of mine

Collecting addictions to the point of no return
I don't care 'cause in a second I will die
Among thousands of friends of mine

A new sensation and then what's coming next?
I can deal with fire
I can deal with fire
Counting on me you promised me to death
As far as I remember
I can deal with fire
I can deal with fire
Track Name: Unbelieve
Am I so?
Am I so old?
That I can’t handle it
Handle the microphone
I’m getting bored
By my own words
By my own chords

I just can’t
I can’t stand
The way I’ve got no talent
It’s a shame
After ten years
This lack of comfidence

Let’s unbelieve almost everything that’s told
Unbelieve me
Unbelieve them
Let’s unbelieve almost everything that’s told
Turn back the things the way they were when we were young

I know
I know what I need
I need no more questioning
It comes and goes
In between phases of believing

Let’s unbelieve almost everything that’s told
Unbelieve me
Unbelieve them
Let’s unbelieve almost everything that’s told
Turn back the things the way they were when we were young
Track Name: Fiddling The Figures
Can’t tell why you’re feeling fine
As you are starting the month without a dime
Is it a good way to react
When everything slides out from its path

We just want to help you through this
But you don’t mind
Your pride is a treasure you keep
You dig your own grave not leading your life

You’ve been fiddling the figures for much too long
You’ll never admit it
About the amount of months you’ve spent on the dole
You’re gonna regret it
We will never have faith in you at all
Yes you do deserve it
And as usual we’ll go through this
You will never see the end of it ‘til the next round

In a certain way
We are all like this
Chained to our fate
Lying about numbers
How are we supposed to react
When we all slide out from our path

We just want to help you through this
But you don’t mind
Your pride is a treasure you keep
You dig your own grave not leading your life

You’ve been fiddling the figures for much too long
You’ll never admit it
About the amount of months you’ve spent on the dole
You’re gonna regret it
We will never have faith in you at all
Yes you do deserve it
And as usual we’ll go through this
You will never see the end of it before you die
