Jerusalem Slim – Hundred Proof Love lyrics

It's happy hour, but no one's laughing
Such a sobering scene
This nightmare's just a stale runnin' dream
Intoxicating me
Beauty is only skin deep
So let's get under the skin
Liquor is quicker but truth of the matter
Is slowly wearing thin
Been giving so much lately
Compassion fatigue
No drinking to forget
Is gonna rescue me
One hundred proof love
I need a hundred proof love
Is it hell or high water rolling over me
I could drown in my misery
One hundred proof love
Pour me the hundred proof love
And I chase my demons down off the rocks
Cause I'm hanging on and on
Like a full time saint, a visionary
I can shock right through the jive
No method missionary
Could pull the wool over my eyes
Radical departure
From the way that you add vice
To the vigilante vanguard of the artificial life
Been fighting so much lately
The war of nerves
It's not about morality
It's how you take the curves
One hundred proof love
It takes a hundred proof love
Is it hell or high water rolling over me
I could drown in my misery
One hundred proof love
Straight up the hundred proof love
I save my strenght for the hardest knocks
'cause there's no surrender
No conditions, hurting for hundred proof love
Been giving so much lately
Compassion fatigue
No drinking to forget
Will ever rescue me, no
One hundred proof love
Find me a hundred proof love
Is it hell or high water rolling over me
I could drown in my misery
One hundred proof love
Gimme a hundred proof love
I chase my demons down off the rocks
Cause there is no common touch
Without a hundred proof love
