My Mood Is 02:33
……….. LYRICS: Little things getting big though they start out small Negativity rolls downhill and makes a big snowball Gettin’ mad that I’m sad twisted in a knot I can’t be bothered to think of all the good things that I got The clouds came in and I don’t know why There’s no shelter from the falling sky I wanna hurry to a bottle and wait for death My mood is as bad as, my mood is as bad as your breath Never mind feeling fine all is well again I’m bringing back all my old bad habits they’re my new best friend Gonna try getting high staying up all night I’m a man on a mission to do all the wrong things right The suns back out and my brains on fire Full of chemicals that got me inspired Don’t ask me for a damn cause I don’t give one My mood is as bright as, my mood is as bright as the sun I’m so sick of these mood swings Always doing a dumb thing No such thing as an even keel Extremes are what I feel The clouds came in and I don’t know why There’s no shelter from the falling sky I wanna hurry to a bottle and wait for death My mood is as bad as, my mood is as bad as, My mood is as bad as your breath

ABOUT:

A song about mood swings and the roller coaster ride they take me through. It can feel like the bad moments last too long and the good times are painfully short and I was constantly trying to recreate the perfect recipe of substances and situations to remain in a constant state of euphoria. That wasn’t sustainable then and it isn’t now either. Contrary to the lyrics, there IS such a thing as an even keel for me these days, and I’ve found a way to stay (mostly) creative and happy without burning out.

LYRICS:

Little things getting big though they start out small
Negativity rolls downhill and makes a big snowball
Gettin’ mad that I’m sad twisted in a knot
I can’t be bothered to think of all the good things that I got

The clouds came in and I don’t know why
There’s no shelter from the falling sky
I wanna hurry to a bottle and wait for death
My mood is as bad as, my mood is as bad as your breath

Never mind feeling fine all is well again
I’m bringing back all my old bad habits they’re my new best friend
Gonna try getting high staying up all night
I’m a man on a mission to do all the wrong things right

The suns back out and my brains on fire
Full of chemicals that got me inspired
Don’t ask me for a damn cause I don’t give one
My mood is as bright as, my mood is as bright as the sun

I’m so sick of these mood swings
Always doing a dumb thing
No such thing as an even keel
Extremes are what I feel

The clouds came in and I don’t know why
There’s no shelter from the falling sky
I wanna hurry to a bottle and wait for death
My mood is as bad as, my mood is as bad as,
My mood is as bad as your breath
