"You'd Be In Great Shape If You Ran Like Your Mouth" as written by and Andrew Meunier Steve Miller....
Construct a better me you'll long to see
My parts have gone missing, scattered like debris
Across the world that I once called my home
(I once called my home)

Six feet deep, jealous of the world above
No longer wander the streets
No more talk of love
On bridges meant for better feet
I once thought I would do you proud

You run your mouth off
Do you think you're talking to me?
I can't sleep
When everything I ever believed
Was broken and stolen from me
(Stolen from me) (x2)

Conversing with new ghosts to replace me
I hope they cherish you
When they share your sheets
'Cause Lord knows that I would give my life
(I would give my life)

Believe me, giving up was easy
I try, but you can never see me
In your dreams, my memory lives on
Even when I'm gone

You run your mouth off
Do you think you're talking to me?
I can't sleep
When everything I ever believed
Was broken and stolen from me
(Stolen from me) (x2)

The more I look, I see an enemy
You'll never put your arms around this memory
I've charted your weakness
Your terror has ended
I'll rescue the pieces and mend all the damage

Well, did you think that it was gonna change?
Every name you burned and buried all along the way
Don't ask or tell
Who needs details?
When the lives you wreck
Are the lives that will prevail

You run your mouth off
Do you think you're talking to me?
I can't sleep
When everything I ever believed
Was broken and stolen from me
(Stolen from me) (x4)

    General CommentConstruct a better me, you'll long to see
    my parts have gone missing, scattered like debris
    across the world that I once called my home
    (I once called my home)

    Six feet deep, Jealous of the world above
    No longer wondering streets, no more talk about
    a bridge is ment for better feet,
    i once thought
    (i would do you proud)

    You ran your mouth off
    Do you think you're talking to me?
    I can't sleep
    When everything I had and believed
    Was broken and stolen from me
    (Stolen from me) (x2)

    Conversing with the ghost to replace me
    Hope they cherish you and they share your sheets
    Cause I know I would give my life
    (I would give my life)

    Believe me, giving up was easy
    I try, but you can never see me
    In your dreams, my memory lives on
    Even when I'm gone

    You ran your mouth off
    Do you think you're talking to me?
    I can't sleep
    When everything I had and believed
    Was broken and stolen from me
    (Stolen from me) (x2)

    The more I look, I see an enemy
    You'll never put your arms around this memory
    I am drawn into weakness
    return resented
    I'm rescuing pieces and mend all damaged

    Well, did you think that it was gonna change?
    Everything you burned and buried all along the way
    Don't ask or tell who he's ?
    All the lives that you wreck
    All the lives that will prevail

    You ran your mouth off
    Do you think you're talking to me?
    I can't sleep
    When everything I had and believed
    Was broken and stolen from me
    (Stolen from me) (x4)

    General CommentBoth of the posted lyrics are all wrong. A lot of stuff is off from the CD cover jacket. Actually a lot of Just Surrender lyrics from the new album are wrong but I'm too lazy to type out the right ones from the CD jacket.

    General Commentcorrections (these aren't from the CD booklet, this is just what I hear, and I'm pretty sure they're correct:

    Construct a better me you'll long to see

    Across the world that I once called my home
    (I once called my home)

    No longer wander the streets
    No more talk above
    A bridge is meant for better feet

    I would do you proud

    You run your mouth off
    Do you think you're talking to me?

    General Commenti think its about being in a controlling relationship. whoever he is with controls everything in his life and he feels that its beyond his control. he wants to find a way to escape her but he doesn't know any other way to escape then to die :

    I hope they cherish you when they share your sheets
    Cause Lord knows that I would give my life
