about

Tokyo Taboo are now ready to gather more friends and fans with the mind-blowing power of their new release, Whiskey. The track, a raw personal lament on Dolly's tumultuous relationship with alcohol, rages with the band’s trademark ferocity as whirring hooks race alongside tremendous beats. The immense power of front-woman Dolly’s vocals married with Guitarist Mickey Danger’s riotous riffs blast into your ears, propelling the track forward at break-neck speed. Of the track, Daggerz comments: “I wanted to describe how I'd become dependent on alcohol to feel ok. I got so used to drinking whiskey straight out of the bottle before jumping on stage. I thought being wasted was the only way I could perform as a riotous female. Turns out I never needed alcohol at all and that craziness lives in me!” Dolly, now sober for almost a year, says, "I was a walking emotional rollercoaster. High from the adrenaline of our show then so low the next day...I could see a nasty end for myself if I didn't pack it in."

lyrics

Whiskey I need you
Burn out my brain
Driving me crazy
Send me to my grave

Whiskey I need you
To numb the pain
I’m so lonely
Make me less afraid

Whiskey I’m broken
You’re my only friend
Sick as a dog
I need this hell to end

Whiskey I’d rather go blind

Blur my vision, on a mission, my decision
Blur my vision
Drown their rhythm, can’t listen, my addiction
Blur my vision

Is happiness at the end of the bottle I don’t wanna live another day
I need a break from reality, insanity, you’re gonna make a mess of me

Take me away

Whiskey I’m ugly
Feel like a freak
Doesn’t he see me?
Just leave me to bleed

Stuck in the shadows
You plague my mind

Trigger my sadness
Leave it behind

Whiskey I’d rather go blind

Blur my vision, on a mission, my decision
Blur my vision
Drown their rhythm, can’t listen, my addiction
Blur my vision

Is happiness at the end of the bottle I don’t wanna live another day
I need a break from reality, insanity, you’re gonna make a mess of me

Take me away

Woah oh woah oh woah oh oh la la la la
Woah oh woah oh woah oh

You took over my brain

My body was yours to take

But your arms are wrapped around her waist

Blur my vision, on a mission, my decision
Blur my vision

Is happiness at the end of the bottle I don’t wanna live another day
I need a break from reality, insanity, you’re gonna make a mess of me

Take me away

Woah oh woah oh woah oh oh la la la la
Woah oh woah oh woah oh

I need a break
Oh don’t wanna live another day
Found happiness
Reality insanity
You’re gonna be the death of me yeah
I need a break
Stuck in the shadows at the bottom of a bottle
Yeah hey hey hey
Baby baby baby baby baby
Take me away!
