deM atlaS – Gratitude (Vevo Live Performance)

Joshua Evans is inspired by the likes of The Pharcyde, Bad Brains and Sarah McLachlan. Add in a dash of Kanye West and it’s easy to understand why the Minnesota native, who performs under the moniker deM atlaS, infuses his music with a mix of sharp-edged bars and bluesy vocals. Back in 2013 he dropped his debut EP ‘Charle Brwn,’ which highlighted his quirky affiliation for the Peanuts gang and earned him a spot on the Rhymesayers Entertainment roster. Since aligning with Slug and company, deM atlaS has released a string of critically acclaimed projects, such as his MF Doom collaborative mixtape, ‘MF Dem’. Earlier this year, his latest effort, ‘Bad Actress,’ arrived, which finds him bringing the force of his talents together across 15 tracks. Standouts include the swaying “Pneumonia,” “Bad Loves Company” and “Gratitude.” On the latter, deM atlaS performed a live version for us in our studio. Stripped of any accompaniments, his powers through an energetic rendition. We’re thankful.

LYRICS
Gratitude can't get you nowhere
Now my love is going away, going away
I got an attitude like you ain't seen yeah
Now my love is going away, going away
Yeah

[Post-Chorus]
I try to be like somebody (Whoo)
I already was (Uh)
And I don't give a fuck (Whoo uh)
I just wanted them to like me
For who I am
I don't give a damn

[Verse]
Now I said my love is gone
I don't know how I'll carry on
I know I've made mistakes
Well I don't really owe 'em praise
Bricks to loose and can full of gasoline
Cigarettes and Dramamine
Feels like my soul is black
On this road and I won't look back

[Chorus]
Gratitude can't get you nowhere
Now my love is going away, going away
I got an attitude like you ain't seen yeah
Now my love is going away, going away

[Post-Chorus]
I try to be like somebody
I already was
And I dont give a fuck (Whoo)
I just wanted them to like me
For who I am
I just need a friend

[Verse]
Made my bed
And now I lay
Outside is where I used to play
Nobody comes around
When I'm feeling down
And no one knows how long it takes
For someone's will to break
But what I know for sure
There's something more than this place
I'm on my way home
Back to you
Hate to win
But I love to lose
I don't need a friend
All alone is where I been
Your love is shallow
One loves their shadow
Kiss of death
Loss of breathe
You were here and then you left

[Chorus]
Gratitude it used to be here
Now my love is going away, going away (Yeah)
I got an attitude like you ain't seen yeah
Now my love is going away, going away

[Outro: Primary vocal + Background vocals]

Hello stranger
Come on
Hello stranger
Come on
Hello stranger
Come on (Whoo)
Hello stranger
Come on (Yeah)
Hello stranger
Come on (Ooh)
Hello stranger
Come on (Whoo)
Hello stranger
