Pick up the pieces,
Listen 'til it sinks in,
Or at least 'yil you go crazy again...
Anything to show you,
To show you understand
The more you have a fit,
The more I back away.

Tie those loose ends up,
The ones that you seemed to have cut.
Why don't you fucking go?
Why don't you show how strong you are?

Hey, am I out of touch?
The things I do to keep your mouth shut...
Hey, am I out of touch?
The things I do to keep your mouth shut...

Well I have watched mistakes,
They take the shape of flesh and blood,
And even a name,
And it's the truth
That would tear your heart right out.
You know I called last night
Just to tell you I

Tied those loose ends up,
The ones that you seemed to have cut.
Why don't you fucking go? Go.
Why don't you show how strong you are?

Hey, am I out of touch?
The things I do to keep your mouth shut...
Hey, am I out of touch?
The things I do to keep your mouth shut...

Every moment you bitch,
Know that this is your shit.
The pointed finger play affects me less.
Now I understand it doesn't have to be
Someone stringing someone else along.
I'll minimize all you want.

    General Commentthis song's about a friend or close one that you really care about and you know they care about you, yet you guys still fight and fight. that other person just goes crazy on you and you'd take it before, but now it's not so easy. the more they do it, the more you back way. you get sick of it to the point where you dare the other to finish cutting the chord on your relationship or tie it back together and "show how strong you are". you want them to just shut up completly sometimes becuz that'll prevent things. the last verse is basically saying telling that person you're tired of it and trying to explain to them that someone doesn't always have to be the leader. if they want you to go, you'll go all they want.

    General Commenta great realization that your friends who get hung up on fuck-ups made by yourself are usually the ones you need to leave behind. people make mistakes, and people need to get over it. you shouldnt trouble yourself to make an angry and selfish person happy just because theyre blaming you for fucking up.
