It’s the end, it’s the end It’s the end of an era It’s the end It’s the end, it’s the end It’s the end of an era It’s the end (and it’s all over now) Maybe it was all my mistake Maybe I went too far astray But baby we’ve come so very far How dare they throw it all away? You still have to fight for what’s right You still have to stand They’re not going to make this easy and It never is It’s the end, it’s the end It’s the end of an era It’s the end It’s the end, it’s the end It’s the end of an era It’s the end (and it’s all over now) Maybe it was all my mistake (baby this was not all your fault) Maybe I was led too far astray) (It’s over, it’s over, it’s over) But baby we’ve come so very far (baby you’ve come such a long, long way) Don’t let them throw it all away (it’s over, it’s over, it’s over) You still have to fight for what’s right You still have to stand They’re not going to make this easy and It never is It’s the end, it’s the end It’s the end of an era It’s the end It’s the end, it’s the end It’s the end of an era It’s the end (and it’s all over now) Once, was a time There seemed to be more light This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine Once, there was a time There seemed to be more light in this world This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine Let it shine, let it shine Let it shine, let it shine ‘Cause it’s the end, it’s the end It’s the end of an era It’s the end It’s the end

Meat... hooks... Meathooks I knew that you wanted to scare me I knew cause that’s what they told me I had a laugh instead Can’t believe the things I said I thought you were so below me I liked how you thought you could dare me Thought you could play on my pride Then you got inside me head Left me shaking in my bed You broke me down from the inside I feel the meat hooks ripping through my skin now I'm hanging on a wire and we're moving in I feel the temperature fallin down and now I'm just another carcass with no face for a frown I feel the meat hooks tearing me apart I’ve got mindless self destruction down to an art I feel the temperature going down and now I'm just another carcass with no face for a frown It’s like how he said don’t mess around with Jim They told me don’t mess with Texas You snared me in your trap Crackle pop until I snap You eat guys like me for breakfast I feel the meat hooks ripping through my skin now I'm hanging on a wire and we're moving in I feel the temperature going down and now I'm just another carcass with no face for a frown I feel the meat hooks and they’re taking hold Always there reminding me I’m not in control I feel the temperature falling down and now I'm just another carcass with no face for a frown I feel the meathooks tearing me apart I’m feeling masochistic so let the evisceration start I feel the temperature falling down and now I'm just another carcass with no face for a frown Meathooks, meathooks, ma ma ma ma ma meat hooks Ma ma ma ma ma ma meathooks

She’s an anomaly One in a million, she makes you feel so free Yeah she’s your number one But she’ll become the one who got away People have spoken, now she’s gonna sashay (did she ever really love you at all?) Anyone can break somebody’s heart With whom do you think you’re messing? Has she got you second guessing? Set it up and smash it all apart Are you just projecting passion? Getting caught up in her fashion? You can build your wall, make it higher, higher, higher Anyone can break somebody’s heart He’s a dichotomy The things he tells you, they don’t always agree He’s not your number one But he was one tenacious son of a gun (his love for you was only a lie) Completely unfaithful, now the good times are gone (you’ll get better all it takes is some time) Anyone can break somebody’s heart Girl your man is misbehaving Situation’s not worth saving Set it up and smash it all apart He will never treat you right Staying out late every night You can build a wall, make it higher, higher, higher Anyone can break somebody’s heart Anyone can break somebody’s heart Emperor exposed as naked Too late now he’ll have to fake it Set it up and smash it all apart He has made you look the fool Falling under fascist rule You can build a wall, make it higher, higher, higher Anyone can break somebody’s

I hunted high and low for you No one else could ever do Sometimes you make me want to scream Sometimes we live inside a dream You stayed through my darkest days When I fell apart you remained I’ll be there when your world shakes I’ll be there through the mistakes and heartaches When the world gets cold I want you by my side When I get old I want you by my side When the world gets cold I want you by my side When I get old I want you by my side A minor earth | a major sky A million reasons I could cry I’d lose my way if not for you You leave the breadcrumbs so I knew You stayed through my darkest days When I fell apart you remained I’ll be there when your world shakes I’ll be there through the mistakes and heartaches When the world gets cold I want you by my side When I get old I want you by my side When the world gets cold I want you by my side When I get old I want you by my side I’ll be there when your whole world shake, shakes Even when your heart heart aches aches You will never, you will never slide, slide Always got to have you by my side, side By… My… Side… When the world gets cold I want you by my side When I get old I want you by my side When the world gets cold I want you by my side When I get old I want you by my side

the whirled girl lives in a blurred world She’s a cherry bomb caught in a maelstrom Spotlights flowers set the scene It’s almost like a dream Dear Christine What’s it all mean miss tangerine? Dear Christine What’s it all mean miss tangerine? Condition white Condition yellow Condition orange Condition red (red red) Now may we present to you The blood and guts that you’re accustomed to In living color right at home A wicked script full of warning signs Trauma, torture ripped from the headlines A stage-managed departure from a life alone What’s it all mean miss tangerine? Dear Christine What’s it all mean miss tangerine? Condition white Condition yellow Condition orange Condition red (red red) Now may we present to you The blood and guts that you’re accustomed to In living color right at home A wicked script full of warning signs Trauma, torture ripped from the headlines A stage-managed departure from a life alone You were here and now you’re gone A faded memory just hanging on A morbid curiosity A faded footnote in history You were here but now you’re gone Your faded memory barely hanging on A morbid curiosity A faded footnote in our history Sha na na na na na Dear Christine (4)

We’re high on the plains I gave you the reigns, Now I’m subject to your whim I could ride all night Beneath this canvas of stars I cannot explain, my plan was insane Fueled by spiked cherry limeade Now you’re way too wasted to be driving my car jason, just drive we don’t have to know where we’re going jason, jason any which way the wind is blowing jason, just drive we don’t need to know where we’re going jason, jason any which way the wind is blowing We’re out on the range And isn’t it strange It’s like a dream where I forgot to get dressed Seein’ UFOs and sayin’ “bros before hoes” You don’t complain when I can’t contain Little things like love and lust When directed your way They’re all ones and zeroes jason, just drive we don’t have to know where we’re going jason, jason any which way the wind is blowing jason, just drive we don’t need to know where we’re going jason, jason any which way the wind is blowing

I put on my best laugh for you I put on my butterfly sunglasses for you I’d put down whatever was passed by you I’d get down on my knees and make an ass out of me just for you And then we’ll find A way to hotwire our minds We’ll leave behind All the lines that we can not align And then you say All the things that make me stay The night begins to glisten As I begin to listen The wheels of love wouldn’t turn for us We’re casualties of the heart in stereo chorus And when you had no more use for us Betrayed my trust, went bust And left a mess both disgusting and glorious And then we’ll find A way to hotwire our minds We’ll leave behind All the lines that we can not align And then you say All the things that make me stay The night begins to glisten As I begin to listen

Lost with the battle won Left with no place to hide Hearing this terrible voice Telling me not to go outside Last in a long, long line Learning to pace my highs (or “Looking for smoke and fire”) How in the hell can this be real? Is this my July surprise? (or “I to myself inquire”) don’t leave me for dead I’m here but I’m crawling down on the ground I know you can see my infrared through the darkness and the sound Can you read my mind? And would you understand All of the things that I pretend Had never really happened? May I have this dance? A waltz while the sky is falling We’ll make a pact and say a prayer Before taking a vow of silence Shhh…. don’t leave me for dead I’m here but I’m crawling down on the ground I know you can see my infrared through the darkness and the sound Through the darkness and the sound (x3) don’t leave me for dead I’m here but I’m crawling down on the ground I know you can see my infrared through the darkness and the sound Don’t leave me for dead I know you can see my infrared

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
