I've got a way with words and it's the cause of all my problems
I've got my mind set
And that's the way it is
I never thought it could get this bad
When I had you in my pocket everything was just fine and

You gotta big mouth and the streets are talkin
About the way you walk around like you own the place
You gotta big mouth and you shoulda shut it
Yeah you shoulda shut it in the first place

Just take another look at the risks we took
And all the things I said what were they really worth

You're all talk you can't act like you're callin the shots
Cuz I'm the only thing left you've got

We don't have anywhere to go but up don't sit back and watch us fall
Take it back, don't react, don't ever forget we'll make it by

And I can't take another second of the god damn town
It's getting harder to sing
Doo doo doo doo doo do-do doo
These melodies are settling and are starting to sting

And everybody's talkin like they know it all
Conducting social symphonies

You're all talk you can't act like you're callin the shots
I'm the only thing left you've got

We don't have anywhere to go but up so sit back and watch us fall
Take it back don't react, don't ever forget we'll make it by[x2]
This time!

You gotta big mouth and the streets are talkin
About the way you walk around like you own the place
You gotta big mouth and you shoulda shut it
Yeah you shoulda shut it in the first place

Everybody's got me looking in the wrong direction[x2]

We don't have anywhere to go but up don't sit back and watch us fall
Take it back, don't react, don't ever forget we'll make it by this time
Take it back, don't react, don't ever forget well make it by

And I can't take another second of the god damn town
It's getting harder to sing

    Well, I connect with this song, my small town is just getting on my nerves. Seems like someone confided in someone, only to figure out they weren't all they were cracked up to be. This person, the singer thought s/he was special, and they were different, only to find out they weren't. Finally the singer just decides he's got to go do something for hiself, so he leaves. But we all know, when we run away, we never forget.
