Don't say a word
Choose them carefully
They're like bullets in the air
You should aim your gun before you pull the trigger
Or maybe you should just put it away

You've got it bad
And no one understands
There's a storm inside your mind
Lightning never chooses where it will strike
But it can burn a bridge right to the ground
Oh you think they all agree
Most definitely you're in the right
Or they tell you what you want to hear
Secretly they fear your unrestrained spite

If you demand respect
Fear is what you'll get
You'll never hear an honest word
You'll buy right into it
Your ego left unchecked
And you'll mistake all these strangers for your friends

These people aren't your friends
Oh, these people aren't your friends

They'll try to dance on your broken glass
Then pull the shards out when you're gone
Then they'll curse your name
Renounce every flattering word that they said to you

Don't say a word
Choose them carefully
They're like bullets in the air
You should aim your gun before you pull the trigger
Or maybe you should just put it away
