They say it’s human nature to lie Ask questions first and then you find an alibi We make it easy to categorize Don’t be surprised, don’t be surprised We put things off until the moment has passed Watch the world go by as we grapple for cash And it’s funny but wealth always seems attracted to trash Don’t ever crash You’ve got to hold on tight Don’t ever admit when you’re not right (x3) Don’t ever admit it til they’re out of sight Man vs. nature, versus everything within Man vs. nature, mother nature always wins It’s never any fun until somebody gets hurt Until they’re lying, bleeding, face down in the dirt Keep on trying, keeping on fighting come what may Because the nature of things is never the easiest way They feel alone when they’re together in the room They fell in love but only all too soon Now they live their lives inside a twisted cartoon Kaboom, kaboom I didn’t mean to get caught up in between I only follow my heart no matter where it leads Now so many doors are closing in on me Let me out please I’m begging down on my knees Sometimes we hurt but we don’t bleed (x3) Sometimes we hurt but love is all we need Man vs. nature, verses everything and all Man vs. nature, mother nature will not fall It’s never any fun until somebody gets hurt Until they’re lying, bleeding, face down in the dirt Keep on trying, keeping on fighting come what may Because the nature of things is never the easiest way Caught you fooling around again, people say that’s just men I turn the other cheek and hide my grin, get out of jail free in the end Caught you fooling around again, people say that’s just men

I tried standing on the edge, I’d pray to god and concentrate I thought that if I tried real hard, maybe I could fly away. I closed my eyes and felt I was riding the waves of air But when I opened them up, I was only standing there I tried burning midnight oil, hiding from the light of day Thought that if I could be invisible Neither black nor white but grey I feared for loneliness but I couldn't build my fort that way So I drew an airline ticket Greenland may there I stay I performed exactly how A person would when one was young I was completely self-absorbed But feeling insignificant My open door had come but I Left one foot on the other side I felt a wind come in and I could not but help abide Well it's freezing in my mind and I want to be outside In Greenland I can feel it like a chill, the whole world stands still In Greenland Now it's raining in my mind but I want to go out side in Greenland (I've got niphablepsia, I need anesthesia) I cried and wiped away the tears stumbled then got up again I walked a million miles more but ended up where I began Well it's freezing in my mind and I want to be outside In Greenland I can feel it like a chill, the whole world stands still In Greenland Well it's snowing in my mind and I feel I'm going blind In Greenland Frost is on the windowsill, maybe none of this is real In Greenland

Strange Season Through an open window one day flew out And another blew right in It was the most surreal thing When morning broke we awoke To collective horror, we had all switched beds The internet accessed our heads And we all know how we ended up here But the pathway out is not so clear Listen when I tell you dear It’s a strange season, it’s a strange season… It’s a strange season, it’s a strange season… If someone was watching us just imagine how embarrassing that might be Amusing as it may seem at first The audience, the suspense Cameras, action, light and feigned reality As happy as we'll ever be All I need is you to pull me through we will come back better than before All I need is you to hold onto And I will never want anything more

about

Devin Tait West Hollywood, California

Having transplanted himself from Kansas to California around the turn of the millennium, Devin Tait quickly found himself derailed from his original plan to join a boyband. Meeting a couple of guitar playing lesbians at karaoke led Tait to form the band Shitting Glitter with Amy Crosby and Von Edwards. After nearly a decade with the band, Tait decided it was time to branch out on his own. ... more
