The Things You Say

The Song

Recorded at First Wave Digital Studios in Hempstead, NY and Cow Pilot Studios in Gilbert, Arizona.

This is a song about "putting your foot in your mouth," and is most certainly autobiographical. I can't tell you how many times I've wanted to retract my statements long after they've left my mouth, traversed the ether and found their way into the ears and hearts of others. You're not fully human until you've experienced this debacle.

The Lyrics

In my time, I have seen
Words of truth - far between
Honest folk rise above
Here I stand; far below

Be careful with what you say
Take measure to think again
Be careful the things you say.

From my words, judgment falls
Mouth engaged, brain is stalled
Too late now - words unleashed!
I retract; all in vain

Be careful with what you say
Remember them every day
The words that you throw away
Will haunt you for every day

Hold on to the things you say
Remember them every day
The words that you throw away
Will haunt you for every day
