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 assassin 
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-ass 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
