lyrics

What a waste, what a waste, what a beautiful waste
It’s such a shame, such a shame, such a dirty shame
If you can’t feel this then you’re doing it wrong
And if you can’t feel this why are you tagging along?

Pop those pills, light another smoke
Have a laugh at someone else’s expense
When I roll my eyes at your Phi Phi read
I can see you getting on the defense
When we all go out and you can’t keep up
Shades down and slumped in a stall
To hear you tell the tales the next day
You’d think you were the belle of the ball

What a waste, what a waste, what a beautiful waste
It’s such a shame, such a shame, such a dirty shame
If you can’t feel this then you’re doing it wrong
And if you can’t feel this why are you tagging along?

Beauty is as beauty does
Moss grows while you’re rolling and stoned
Even sugar daddies sour
After all the green that they’ve loaned
This town’s not big enough for all your mistakes
It’s a smaller world than you think
And if you don’t stop stealing sips of my Stoli,
I’ma have to raise a stink

What a waste, what a waste, what a beautiful waste
It’s such a shame, such a shame, such a dirty shame
If you can’t feel this then you’re doing it wrong
And if you can’t feel this why are you tagging along?

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
