lyrics

Nobody give a damn - how she run me down
how my frail heart make a heavy sound
when I tell my friends - that I'm broke
well they pat me on the back like it's a joke

So I'll just shut my mouth
I won't speak a word of it no more

When I go out - I hope my grin
does not betray the bitter ghost within
fingers pressed to lips
guide me deep into the bottle that I sip

So I'll just shut my mouth
I won't speak a word of it no more

I don't blink - when they speak her name
though a devil dig her claws into my brain
while my friends laugh - I watch the mirror
and the inverse of a world I've come to fear

But I'll just shut my mouth
I won't speak a word of it no more

I could carry chains made out of steel
no more a burden then this sadness that I feel
maybe the truth - can break these binds
but if I give it all away well it won't be mine

I'll just shut my mouth
I'll just shut my mouth
yeah I'll just shut my mouth
I won't speak a word of it no more
