  • Mood swing whiskey
    Drank it all in the morning
    Waiting for the dark to move in
    Sitting in my step-sister's kitchen
    Horseflies on the window sill
    Eyes trained on the lemon king
    And wishing it were a gun

    I'm thinking of our wedding rings
    Trapped inside the heater
    Spring water on the floor of this
    Sex starved room

    The nightmare's fires burn
    The waves of bliss
    I tried to stop it with my hand
    I was lost in the kiss
    With you

    Mood swing whiskey
    Your bliss, the actress,
    Bliss, the ***assin
    Bliss, the abyss

    Did a crazy shot of whiskey
    In about zero to sixty
    All I could see was the beer

    I face the future with a drink in my right
    Eyes to the sparkling gloom
    Body naked, afraid, and amazed

    Say boost me up to your junkyard paradise
    Boost me up to your junkyard paradise
    With a sweet-*** photo of you

    She cheated, and she lied, and you stole her
    Stung my tongue just like
    Sweat from her shoulder

    Ooh, mood swing whiskey
    Your love, the destroyer
    Love, the destroyer
    Love, love...

    Yes mood swing whiskey has my brain
    Only you can break this chain
    Are you here in my bed again
    Can you hear my love again (x4)

    Run down the subway station babe
    I'm packing my rod
    All and present histories erased
    I am a punishing god
    Mood swing whiskey
    Yeah the leaves are made of
    Messy things again

    And I said this is all the headless acrobats
    Faces crushed in the circus dust
    All for the law of gravity
    And the price of admission

    Beautiful loser warm hearts have let you down
    Beautiful loser warm hearts have left you
    Oh no, you...

    I think of mankind in quotation marks
    Ever since I took a drink from you
    This is for all the headless acrobats
    Faces crushed in the circus dust
    All in the name of gravity
    And the price of admission

    Beautiful loser while eyes have let you now
    Beautiful loser while eyes have let you now
    Cause you're beautiful

    I think of mankind in quotation marks
    Ever since I took a drink of you
