"Covered in Cowardice" as written by Aaron Solowoniuk, Jon Gallant, Ian D'sa and Ben Kowalewicz....
Twisted tongues will place you in their category
Face to face you'll hear them tell a different story
Loose lips may sink ship, but honesty's forever
Eye's of envy try to cut and try to sever

Cowards that hide behind their words!
Don't care whose feelings will get hurt
Beware the voice without a face
That's hidden underneath the

Covered of Cowardice! (Can't you see them?!)
Covered of Cowardice! (Can't you hear them?!)
Beware the voice without a face
That's hidden underneath the
Covered of Cowardice! (Can't you see them?!)
Covered of Cowardice! (Can't you hear them?!)
Cowards that hide behind their words!
Don't care whose feelings will get hurt

Their eyes are blinded by their rage
Beware the voice without a face

When your insecure, they'll find the fuel to start a fire
They're bitter pricks with only hatred to inspire

Level heads prevail, revenge won't make it better
Trust your instinct like you trust what's in the mirror

Cowards that hide behind their words!
Don't care whose feelings will get hurt
Beware the voice without a face
That's hidden underneath the

Covered of Cowardice! (Can't you see them?!)
Covered of Cowardice! (Can't you hear them?!)
Beware the voice without a face
That's hidden underneath the
Covered of Cowardice! (Can't you see them?!)
Covered of Cowardice! (Can't you hear them?!)
Cowards that hide behind their words!
Don't care whose feelings will get hurt

Covered of Cowardice! (Can't you see them?!)
Covered of Cowardice! (Can't you hear them?!)
Beware the voice without a face
That's hidden underneath the
Covered of Cowardice! (Can't you see them?!)
Covered of Cowardice! (Can't you hear them?!)
Cowards that hide behind their words!
Don't care whose feelings will get hurt

A voice without a face!
A voice without a face!

    General Comment@ usernames suck, "loose lips sink ships" isn't from a fall out boy song, It's an old sailors saying that means, Ships are attacked because people don't keep their mouths shut and leak information.

    General CommentThis song is about people who hide behind their words so they can be mean and cruel if they want. It can apply to anyone-people on message boards/internet, journalists, editors, things like that. It's about false bravado when there are no repercussions.

    I think so, anyways

    General CommentI agree with FlashRiot - I was about to post something similar. I thought it was about people that post argumentative/hurtful postings on message baords etc, not caring about the harm they cause, hiding behind their username. But they would never say it face-to-face because they are cowards

    General Commentin the song they say "Loose lips may sink ship, but honesty's forever". the lyrics "Loose lips sink ships" are actually from a Fall Out Boy song. anyone know if theres any connection there? a possible fued maybe? or is it just coincidence?

    General CommentWhen the say that, I'm pretty sure they just mean that loose lips are someone who can't keep quiet and says something they're not supposed to which "sinks ships" meaning that something is ended by that?

    I'm not sure, but as far as I know, there's no connection. Maybe look it up or something if you really want to know.

    General CommentLOOSE LIPS SINK SHIPS - A magazine for music lovers (I searched in google)
    It also says in some site that it means "Unguarded talk may give useful information to the enemy." - An allied slogan used in WW2.
    Anyway, great song.
