“A controlled acid trip awaits you”

'The Devil I Know' spotlights Caxton's eclectic range of influences from Blondie to The Pixies while still unearthing a new version of their own sound.

Track Name: The Man Behind It All
It feels surreal
We've been down here before
We've been down here where
Every spinning motion is a wave we can't explain

All the while there's a man behind it all
Watching us from inside the fog
Is that my reflection?
Are we going in the right direction?
Will we ever make it out of here?

It's hard to tell
If there's meaning in the words
Is there meaning when
More and more sensations make the phrases sound the same

All the while there's a man behind it all
Watching us from inside the fog
Is that your reflection?
Are we going in the wrong direction?
Are you there?

By now you know
It was just as we planned
And it went well
Everything considered, yeah I’d do it all again

Never was there a man behind it all
Watching us from inside the fog
This is what we asked for
What we wanted from the start and now we got it
Aren’t you glad to know?
There’s no one behind it all
Haunting us from inside the walls
We sink, we float, and it’s fine
Track Name: Domesticate
You said, “Baby, you're leaving? It's treason!
Save me, please tell me it's not true”
I said, “Maybe it's all for some reason
Heavy, the things I'm gonna do”

It's okay, I'm anxious too
But…

I just can't stay here and domesticate
No gold left for me in this cave
But it's not really an escape because
This won't be the last time you see me

Lately, I'm beaming I mean it
Strangely, I like this kind of new
It’s crazy, I'm feeling the ceiling
Frankly, I'm higher than the moon

You're really great, it isn't you

Go, go, gotta go now
Go, go, with the flow now
Go, go, on my own now

Do what works for you

I just can’t stay here and domesticate
No goal left for me at this pace
And it's not really an escape because
This won't be the last time you see me
Once you see me gone
Track Name: The Devil I Know
The night is in
Release these sins from my head
In a daze I'm gone
In a haze but not for long

It's all around you and it will astound you
But it's not about you and your one man show
I want this to spite you
I need this to hide you
There's too much inside you
The devil I know

Daylight again
Wondering when you happened
And I know it's wrong
But it's a phase I'm working on
