"Mr. Bitterness" as written by Michael Doughty, Mark Degliantoni, Yuval Gabay and Sebastian Steinberg....
There is a bar they call The Bitter Sea.
And she sits and drinks a velvet crush--that's
cool Aid and gin--casing the clientele
Like a relentless cameraman. She is
Elsewhere. She says You keep a-knocking
But you can't come in, and I say
Little Sister, don't you do what your Big Sister does

Spiral down down down down down down down

Well desire looks just like you with an uzi nine
Gundown fifteen bystanders in a roadside driveby
Desire is the grassfire drinking gasoline
And she says Open up your mouth, man, let me come inside

Spiral down down down down down down down

She cracked
Now they call me Mr. Bitterness
She snapped
Now they call me Mr. Bitterness
She's gone,
Gone gone

Ah, leaning up against the wall
I will lash out dancing like a madman when you're gone
I will spit the blue flame and hurl my glass against the wall
And I will hear your name coming out from a boom box
I will hear your name called out from passing cars

Spiral down down down down down down down

She cracked

    General Commentawesome song.
    the "little sister" line comes from an Elvis song of the same name...

    and Kool-Aid and gin tastes much better than you'd think ;)
