It Sounds so Beautiful When You Shut up

 

You’ve been running your mouth the whole time.

I tried to act like I didn’t mind.

Talking a lot is not a crime,

But if I had a dime,

For all the nasty things you said,

I’d be fricken rich.

 

It sounds so beautiful,

Oh so beautiful,

When you shut up.

Your words make me want to throw up,

But let me tell you this.

Are you ready for it?

It sounds so beautiful when you shut up.

 

The world knows your fate.

The world knows your fake.

Try to test me.

Try to get the best of me.

Try to impress me,

By not saying a word.

 

You’ve been running your mouth the whole time.

I tried to act like I didn’t mind.

 

It sounds so beautiful,

Oh so beautiful,

When you shut up.

Your words make me want to throw up,

But let me tell you this.

Are you ready for it?

It sounds so beautiful when you shut up.

 

I don’t hate,

But you discriminate,

Against my very existence.

All I have to say,

On this very day,

Is it sounds so beautiful when you shut your fricken mouth.
