Out of the Mouths of Idiots...
Oh, I wish I could learn to keep my mouth shut
Still wake up in a cold sweat when I think I shouldn’t have, but,
plowed right ahead; didn’t heed the warning call
Really shouldn’t have said anything at all,
but I flapped my face, and said something I now regret
Now I have to live with a memory, I’d just as soon forget
It was a result of my head injury, the guilt I couldn’t take
Even a fleeting thought made me look for an escape
And escape meant telling that person; my thoughts on everything
As a result, a lot of pain I did bring
to someone I cared about, probably too much
Yes, I really struck out in the clutch!
For what I said proved too much for her to bear
It pushed her away from me, and it just wasn’t fair
I had to work things out, with 1/2 my brain tied behind my back!
All because of a fleeting thought and the intelligence I lacked
