lyrics

Where is everybody?
She's always asking me
I tell her they're in bed just like she should be
Why is it so quiet?
And what would happen if I scream?
Would someone come to rescue or would they even hear me?
And I said not to worry, nothing's gonna happen here
There isn't much to favor but there's even less to fear
here in Sleepytown
No open eyes to meet tonight
here in Sleepytown
But if you listen you can hear the city far away
Doesn't anybody feel the same as I?
There's nowhere else I'd rather be than way up in the sky
I'd fly around the world and find the most beautiful place
Then I'd come back you and all our friends
and we'd live forever in a state of grace
And I said you're a dreamer and I hope you'll always be
The hardest part is believing when you're out there running free
from Sleepytown
No open eyes to meet tonight
here in Sleepytown
But if you listen close you'll hear the city far away
We walk these silent streets
you search for signs of life impatiently
I know one day you'll want to leave
Your widened eyes
Your wandering feet
Your sense of curiosity
I hope you'll never forget me
How can anybody waste so much time asleep?
The sandman's done his job here but he isn't fooling me
Sleepytown...
no open eyes to meet tonight
here in Sleepytown
but if you listen you can hear the city far away
No open eyes to meet tonight
if you listen close you can hear the city
No open eyes to meet tonight
But if you listen close you'll hear....

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
