about

With ADIEU, Logan Lynn puts melody to his own mental health crisis and takes us with him on an unflinching journey inward. ADIEU is a leap into an abyss that most of us, including Lynn previously, spend our lives trying our best not to have to look at. There are no metaphors here; just dirty, honest and, at times, difficult truth.

In the album’s liner notes, Lynn writes “ADIEU is about saying goodbye to love. It is also, at times, about my not wanting to live…or not knowing how to move through this traumatic experience we all call “living”. It is about overcoming heartache; about resilience in the face of grief and suffering; and about love being stronger than anything else.”

Musically, ADIEU is a departure for Logan Lynn, with he and his longtime collaborator Gino Mari abandoning the electronic dance vehicle Lynn has made a name for himself by way of over the past 2 decades, landing them both squarely in a mix of rock, pop, punk and deep 90s vibes. Citing musical influences that range from Liz Phair, David Bowie, Elliott Smith, The Ocean Blue, Kathleen Hannah, The Sundays, R.E.M. and Innocence Mission to modern references like Whitey, Chvrches, Logan’s friends Chromatics, Portland Punk Icon Beth Ditto, and former labelmates and mentors The Dandy Warhols, both Lynn and Mari sound right at home in this space.

Over the course of the record’s 15 tracks, Lynn is our guide through very personal trauma, profound loss, his own persistent suicidal ideation and mental health struggle, and out the other side into a place of resilience, recovery, hope and love…or Hell, as it were.

Logan Lynn’s reclaiming of eternal Hellfire and damnation on ADIEU‘s final cut “Oh, Lucifer” is a brutal roasting of the religious fundamentalist cult he escaped as a young person and a grandiose middle finger to all of the insufferable anti-gay bigots he has encountered in the years since. By the time Lynn sings the lyrics “Remember, my dears that if we don’t sin then Jesus died for fucking nothing” and a demon voice begins to growl “Faggots should be burned”, it’s clear that this song — and album, for that matter – are not at all what they may have seemed.

Lynn’s 8th record ADIEU releases on his 8th year clean from a very well-documented 16 year addiction to cocaine, crack cocaine and alcohol that nearly took his life in 2008. Logan is no stranger to themes of addiction and mental health challenges in his music and he is the brainchild behind the successful “Keep Oregon Well” campaign to fight stigma through the arts. Since its inception, Logan Lynn has partnered on the #KeepOregonWell Concert Series with Bleachers, Kevin Bacon, The Dandy Warhols, Of Monsters And Men, Pete Yorn, Charli XCX, Walk Off The Earth, Kurt Vile, Flo Rida, Priory, Tori Kelly, David Gray, Matt Nathanson, Collective Soul, Blitzen Trapper, Violent Femmes, Graham Nash, Blind Pilot and hundreds of other bands, authors, performers and artists committed to raising awareness about mental health and fighting stigma through the arts.

So what if I wanna make you mine?
And what if you wait for just the right time?
So long that the right time passes you by?

No rules. No rules. No rules.
No rules. No rules. No rules.

And I want you to wrap your hands around my neck.
So what if I want you to shake me to death?
And what if it gets you off in the night?
As long as he knows you’re a whore for the spotlight.

No rules. No rules. No rules.
No rules. No rules. No rules.
No rules. No rules. No rules.
No rules. No rules. No rules.

So what if I want the tongue in my mouth to get all around town?

Track Name: Go There When You Want To Be Loved
Oh hey there.
All you know is that you wanna play there.
All you know is that you wanna stay there.
All you know is that you wanna slide down,

All you know is that you’ve got to go there,
but you know there’s nowhere for you to go.

(Come on!)

So maybe you should stop and think of what you’re saying
before you go and tell me I’m your baby.
When all you want to do is take me down,
down to the ground.

And why now?
After all this time you say you need me?
After all these years of making believe
that who you were is who you are?

So I say hey there.
All I know is that you cannot stay here.
All I know is that you have to go now.
Go now cuz I need to be loved.
Go now cuz I need to be loved.

But hey there.
All you know is that you wanna stay there.
All you know is that you’ve got to go there,
but you know there’s nowhere for you to go.

Track Name: I Am Like A Dog Now
Are you gonna leave by yourself?
Or are you gonna take some of this home with you?
Are you gonna call me when you get to where you’re going?
And are we saying goodbye right here?
Cuz I am.
Cuz I am.
Oh I am like a dog now
but lower than that somehow

Are you gonna live by yourself?
Or have you found another man to cum for you?
Are you gonna miss me when you get to where you’re going?
And are we falling apart right here?
Cuz I am. Cuz I am.
Oh I am like a dog now
Cuz I am. Cuz I am.
Oh I am like a dog now

And should I plan to die right here?
Cuz I am. Cuz I am.
Oh I am like a dog now.

Track Name: The One (Album Version)
Oh Why didn’t you know that I was the one?
The one.
Oh Why didn’t you know that I was the one?
The one.

I saw you in the dark and gave you my heart.
You traded all of my good for a hookup
with dirty dawg and some other guys.
You should have been careful with my love.
For what? Did they mean so much?
I wish I’d been harder to give up.
Did you not think twice about making nice with
everyone who wants to fuck?

Oh Why didn’t you know that I was the one?
The one.
Oh Why didn’t you know that I was the one?
The one.

You left me on my own in a shell of a home
with nothing but dog shit and bad luck.
For a stranger’s touch and a mountain of lies
that were taller than me when stacked up.
And why? Just to see me cry?
Cuz you figured I hadn’t had enough?
I was blind to think you were kind,
to believe all that you were serving up.

Oh Why didn’t you know that I was the one?
The one.
Oh Why didn’t you know that I was the one?
The one.

Oh Why didn’t you know that I was the one?
The one.
Oh Why didn’t you know that I was the one?
The one.

Said I was the one.
The one.
Said I was the one.
The one.

You want me. No, you want me to go.
You want me. No, you want me to go.
Track Name: Before The Truth Comes Out
(Boys to the front!)

I like the way you sound before the truth comes out.
Oh I like the way you sound before you open your mouth.

And there you were, flying out on your birthday my dear.
And I should have known from the start that this would end in tears.
And oh you run ahead of me. Oh you run ahead of me.

I like the way you sound before the truth comes out.
Oh, before you open your mouth.
Before you open your mouth, I like the way you sound.
Said I like the way you sound before the truth comes out.
Oh before you open your mouth, before you open your mouth.

And there you were, halfway across the world
giving up all we had built for a strangers cock.

(Boys to the front!)

But I like the way you sound before you start to talk.
Oh, before you start to talk.

I like the way you sound,
said I like the way you sound before you open your mouth.
Oh before the truth comes out, before the truth comes out.
I like the way you sound before the truth comes out.
Oh I like the way you sound before you open your mouth.
Track Name: The Most Wrong In The Whole World
You are the most wrong, you are the most wrong,
You are the most wrong in the whole world.
You are the most wrong, you are the most wrong,
You are the most wrong in the whole world.

This bitter year brought us to something you’ve never known,
but I’ve seen this road before and it goes home.
Oh I have a lot to undo; all the years of being owned and touched
by someone like you, but never known.

You are the most wrong, you are the most wrong,
You are the most wrong in the whole world.
You are the most wrong, you are the most wrong,
You are the most wrong in the whole world.

And if love didn’t matter to you, why was I in the storm
fighting for shelter and a place to be warm?
If night is all that you can choose, you decide who to tell.
And maybe what you should do is go straight to hell.

You are the most wrong, you are the most wrong,
You are the most wrong in the whole world.
Oh you are the most wrong, you are the most wrong,
You are the most wrong in the whole world.
Oh you are the most wrong in the whole world.
Oh you are the most wrong in the whole world.

It’s all that you want to do.
(But it’s not like you said you were ready to go)
And all that I wanted to do.
(But it’s not like you said you were ready to go)
It’s all that you wanted to do.
(But it’s not like you said you were ready to go)
It was all that I wanted to do.
(But It’s not like you said you were ready to go)
It’s all that you wanna do.
Track Name: Way Out
Way out, way out where you stand.
Are you gone? Are you gone?
You’re way out, way out where you stand.
Are you gone? Are you gone?
Are you gone? Are you gone?

And I give up when I lose sight of land.
I go out so far I can’t float.
But I don’t know how to let go of your hand
when there’s water filling the boat.

And I told you that before.
I told you that before.
Way out, way out where you stand.
Are you gone? Are you gone?
You’re way out, way out where you stand.
Are you gone? Are you gone?
Are you gone? Are you gone?

And I cry out “You’re a dirty liar!”
I’m trapped underneath your desire.
And I twist and shout until I’m a pile of ashes.
Will you scatter me in the fire?

Cuz I felt this way before.
I felt this way before.
You were way out, way out where you stand.
Are you gone? Are you gone?
You’re way out, way out where you stand
Are you gone? Are you gone?
Are you gone? Are you gone?

Cuz I felt this way before.
(Felt this way before)
I felt this way before.
I felt this way before.
(Felt this way before)
I felt this way before.

Way out, way out where you stand.
Are you gone? Are you gone?
You’re way out, way out where you stand.
Are you gone? Are you gone?
Are you gone? Are you gone?
Are you gone? Are you gone?
Are you gone? Are you gone?
Oh, are you gone? Are you gone?
Track Name: Break Me Down
Tell me you, tell me you love me.

Break me down.
Take me as I am.
Take me as I was
and will be again.

Well, take me out.
Say that I'm the one,
the only one you need.
And tell me you love me. Me.
Tell me you, tell me you love me.

I'll kill it with you in time
You know we're an afterlife to an afterthought
of a pipe we found in the night.
But I'll kill it with you in time
you know we're an afterlife to an afterthought
of a pipe we found in the night.

Break me down.
Take me as I am.
Take me as I was
and will be again.
Take me out.
Say that I'm the one,
the only one you need.
And tell me you love me
before I turn my body to leave,
walk out the door and take my heart with me.
Pull me close cuz I am out at sea
in the living room with you next to me.

I'll kill it with you in time.
You know we're an afterlife to an afterthought
of a pipe we found in the night.
But I'll kill it with you in time.
You know we're an afterlife to an afterthought
of a pipe we found in the night.
I'll kill it with you in time
You know we're an afterlife to an afterthought
of a pipe we found in the night.

Tell me you, tell me you love me.
Oh tell me you, tell me you love me.
Track Name: Wandering The Kingdom
Well I was born to a prophet who had fallen to his knees,
wrestled god in the kingdom til he no longer believed.
I am strong and like my mother, I am softer underneath.
All the memories of buildings sometimes make me want to leave.

We have always known this place and we have always held it close.
It’s our home even when the wind blows.
We have always known its fate and it has always kept us close.
It’s our home even when the wind blows.

So I come back to the altar after years of disbelief,
Take a good look at me father. Please forgive me for my need.
We have both run from the village. They had fire and they were thieves.
Tried to lock our souls in cages, make us pay them for the keys.

I have always known your name and I have always held you close.
You’re my son whichever way the wind blows.
I have always known your fate and it has always kept us close.
You’re my son whichever way the wind blows.

All the houses full of babies that all look something like me,
Tell me what are we to teach them? What are they meant to believe?
Are we searching for our village? Is it just us and the babies?
Or are we wandering the kingdom, ever aching to believe?

It found us before this place and we have always held it close.
It’s our love every time the wind blows.
(Every time the wind blows)
It has always known our fate and it has always kept us close.
It’s our love every time the wind blows.
(Every time the wind blows)
Well it’s our love every time the wind blows.
(Every time the wind blows)
It’s our love every time the wind blows.
(Every time the wind blows)
Track Name: We Will Overcome
Well I grew up hard,
so hard, so hard on myself.
And I was too young,
too young and dumb to know anything else.

But we will, we will, we will overcome.
Yeah we will, oh yeah we will, said we will overcome.

I had a dream that we had a daughter.
She was younger than I remember ever being.
And she looked like me.
She was ours. Our family.
But as night went on her blood ran cold.
Oh she was gone and we were old.
The day is done, our story's told.
She is gone and we are old.

So I put my love, our love,
back up on the shelf.
Cuz i am too old, too tired and old to try anything else.

But we will, we will, we will overcome.
Yeah we will, oh yeah we will, said we will overcome.

And I have a dream that you will want to make love.
(mmm-hmm)
And there is laughter in what i remember from these black halls.
(uh-huh)
But as life runs out, bodies turn to stone.
And we are statues of who we used to know.
Oh we all crumble, everyone goes.
And we are statues of who we used to know.

But we will, we will, we will overcome.
Yeah we will, oh yeah we will, said we will overcome.
But we will, we will, we will overcome.
Yeah we will, oh yeah we will, said we will overcome.
But we will, we will, we will overcome.
Yeah we will, oh yeah we will, said we will overcome.
But we will, we will, we will overcome.
Yeah we will, oh yeah we will, said we will overcome.
Track Name: Let's Go Home
When you fly so high it gets hard to breathe,
give yourself the right to end this dream.
If you love me then why can’t you see?
When you go, you really go. When you go, you really go.

In the morning I always believe
that we are wet from a night of ecstasy.
But when you take me there I am on my knees!
I let go, I just let go. I let go, I just let go.

It’s a wicked life we tried to leave,
shaken down the vine and buried deep.
After all this time you’re after me?
Get me home then, get me home.
Get me home then, get me home.
Get me home then, get me home.

So we took our love to Calvary
to spit upon the grave of god’s zombie.
Scream what did he ever do for me?!
No one knows, no one knows.
No one knows, no one knows.

It’s long, this life, this agony,
battle scars and lines drawn underneath.
So come, let’s ditch these old bodies!
Let’s go home.
Let’s go home.

Let’s go. Let’s go home.
Track Name: Adieu
So now you wanna steal my name,
then turn around and sell me down the river?
Quit looking for someone to blame
with your lovers hiding in the corner.

And Adieu.
I’ve done everything for you I can do.
Now please go. I need you to.
Adieu, adieu. It’s over for you.
And it’s over for me too.

But is that the way that it should be?
Is that the way that you thought it would seem?
Is that the way that you wanted to leave?
Is that the way you love me?
Is that the way you love me?

So now you’re playing games with fame
and nobody is gonna be the winner.
None of this is worth a thing
and baby, you’re a beginner.
Oh now you wanna steal my name,
then turn around and sell me down the river?
Quit looking for someone to blame
with your lovers hiding in the corner.

So Adieu.
I’ve done everything for you I can do.
Now please go. I need you to.
Adieu, adieu. It’s over for you.
And it’s over for me too.

But is that the way that it should be?
Is that the way that you thought it would seem?
Is that the way that you wanted to leave?
Is that the way you love me?
Is that the way you love me?

Oh, Adieu.
(To you and you and you)
I’ve done everything for you.
(To you and you and you)
Now please go I need you to.
Adieu.
(To you and you and you)
I’ve done everything for you.
(To you and you and you)
Now please go I need you to.
Adieu.
(To you and you and you)
Adieu.
(To you and you and you)
It’s over for you.
But it’s over for me too.

And is that the way that it should be?
Is that the way that you thought it would seem?
Is that the way that you wanted to leave?
Is that the way you love me?
Is that the way you love me?
Track Name: Oh, Lucifer
And remember my dear that
if we don’t sin, then Jesus died for fucking nothing.
All alone in your fear, well I know what you’re into.
Tell me you’re into everything I want and I’ll take you down
to a place called

Hell. It’s so warm.
All of our friends are here to keep us company.
Hell. It’s so warm.
No one can hurt us now for all eternity
Except for us.
(Faggots should be burned)
Except for us. Except for us.

So remember my dears that
if we don’t sin, then Jesus died for fucking nothing.
All alone in your fears, well I know what you’re into.
Tell me you’re into everything I want and I’ll take you down

Hell. It’s so warm.
All of our friends are here to keep us company.
Hell. It’s so warm.
