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
