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

Track Name: You Leave Me
Whenever you leave I feel it’s generally expected that I’ll fall apart
I follow the path marked ‘do not enter’
Visions recast with the people who last I’d wanna see at the end of the world
no voices, only echoes

the damage is done, it went down with the sun

You leave me high and dry
you leave me wondering why
you leave me high
you leave me questioning why
whenever you leave I forget what I believe
the problems multiply
you leave me high
you leave me

whenever you leave it comes so easily
invasion of my fortress
storming in just like winter
I’m incomplete so I’m resigned to compete
with myself and the demons within
the voices and the echoes

the damage is done, it went down with the sun

You leave me high and dry
you leave me wondering why
you leave me high
you leave me questioning why
whenever you leave I forget what I believe
the problems multiply
you leave me high
you leave me

go on, go ahead, go on and cut my safety net
it's warm when you here and cold when you go
sun when we're together than you leave me alone
i gave you everything, didn't I?
oh the damage is done, it went down with the sun
and I'm alone

You leave me high and dry
you leave me wondering why
you leave me high
you leave me questioning why
whenever you leave I forget what I believe
and I'm left terrified
you leave me high
you leave me questioning why
Track Name: Tantric Damage
This takes so much time
Takes everything of mine
And I'm left depleted

This takes so much time
Takes control of my mind
And I'm left defeated

We’ve carried on too far
Living in a bell jar
But we have not completed

It feels like it will not end
I will break before you bend
and you have not conceded

This takes so much time
Takes everything of mine
And I'm left depleted

This takes so much time
Takes control of my mind
And I'm left defeated

We’ve carried on too far
Living in a bell jar
But we have not completed

It feels like it will not end
I will break before you bend
and you have not conceded

Tantric damage, tantric damage
tantric damage, oh oh oh
Track Name: Digital Representation (Kansas City Remix)
I remember your face and it was in 3-D
but now I only see you on the monitor screen
your every move has been digitized
and because I’m anonymous I’m mesmerized
your life is laid out for me to browse
so I get as close to you as the computer allows
sometimes I think that I’ve gone off my rocker
‘cause if I did this offline I’d be considered a stalker

I’m addicted to this sensation
making love to your digital representation
I’m completely taken with the notion
that you feel me through this electronic ocean

I remember your voice just like the sweetest song
and it gave me the impression we might get along
yeah maybe it was all just make believe
but I really thought that you were just as in to me
I’ll never get the nerve to tell you face-to-face
that what I want is for you to come over to my place
so I just sit here with the mouse in my hand
and fool myself that someday I will be your man

I’m addicted to this sensation
making love to your digital representation
I’m completely taken with the notion
that you feel me through this electronic ocean

what would you think, if you knew how much time I spend
thinking of you
what would you think, if you knew how much time I spend
thinking of you
what would you think, if you knew how much time I spend
thinking of you

I’m addicted to this sensation
making love to your digital representation
I’m completely taken with the notion
that you feel me through this electronic ocean
