Humor's got a place like all things. Be
aware of the pain it can sometimes bring.
A joke to you might not be so funny, so
take the time and think it out before you
open up your mouth.
I can't believe the things we say. A
cutting word can ruin days. I can't
believe the things we say. Now I wish I
hadn't spoken. Can't you learn to take a
fucking joke.

We say things we don't mean but friends
understand. Strength and humor don't
always go hand in hand. A joke to you
might not be so funny, so take the time
and think it out before you open up your
mouth.

I can't believe the things we say. A
cutting word can ruin days. I can't
believe the things we say. Now I wish I
hadn't spoke. Can't you learn to take a
fucking joke.

But no ones laughing. I wish I could
crack a smile, but I can't. I know he's
such a fucking jerk. But jerks hurt too,
and I'm not that cool that I can laugh. I
see because it's happened to me and I
think I was an asshole when I said what I
said. It's just a sick sense of humor rolls
around in my head. Cause we've had our
fun at your expense and that's wrong.
And we know it. You said we were
friends. For friendship's sake, let's give
it a break.

I can't believe the things we say. A
cutting word can ruin days. I can't
believe the things we say. Now I wish I
hadn't spoke. Can't you learn to take a
fucking joke!

    General CommentThis is one of my favourite by GB, I guess it's about when you take things just that little bit too far and you argue with your friends. And the song's just saying give it a break for the sske of our friendship.
