Got an open mouth and open sores too
Got an oversized opinion of you
Got a long race and no chance to lose
Got an oversized opinion for two

Got an open mouth and open sores too
Got an indifferent opinion of you
Got an open mouth and nothin to lose
Got an oversized opinion of you

Oh, knocked down
Take back these pictures off the ground
Oh, knocked down

You act like I'm plenty okay and I'm not okay, though
Well, think it over, I've got a four leaf clover
You act like I'm plenty okay and I'm not okay, though
Think it over, I've got a four leaf clover

You act like you're plenty okay and are you okay, though?
Well, think it over, I've got a four leaf clover
You act like you're plenty okay and are you okay, though?
You think it over, I keep just getting nauseous

    General CommentI think the lyrics are great (possibly referring to having imperfections that are clearly seen because of opening one's self up through talking, etc.) but I want to hear the music to get a full taste of it before I establish a firm opinion.

    General CommentWhat I hear:

    Got an open mouth, an open source too.
    Got an oversized opinion of you.
    Got a long race and no chance to lose.
    Got an oversized opinion for two.

    Got an open mouth, an open source too.
    Got an indifferent opinion of you.
    Got an open mouth and nothin' to lose.
    Got an oversized opinion of you.

    Yeah, I'm down.
    (unknown), off the ground.
    Yeah, I'm down.

    (Unkown)
    This isn't over, I've got a four leaf clover.
    (Unkown)
    This isn't over, I've got a four leaf clover.

    General CommentI definatly think it's saying this isn't over, I've got a four leaf clover (which would make sense with the off the ground part).

    I aslo think that part that is almost completely unable to be understood says something about God putting your past behind you. I hear God the second time, but not the first and I hear past behind you both times.
