The way you operate, the way you operate
is straight to the bone, is straight to the bone
And everything you say, and everything you say
it leaves me alone, it leaves me alone
The way you compromise is like pulling out my eyes, my eyes
And you say that everything I do, it bounces off of you with everything I say
The way you operate, the way you operate
is straight to the bone, is straight to the bone
And when I find my eyes, I'll cut you down to size, down to size
Until then I'll wander around blind, bumping into signs and falling on my face
The way I think you'll take it, so I guess I'm breaking it
Every time I open my mouth, and I can't live it down
And I think you know, so I guess I'm blowing it
Every time I open my mouth, no I can't live it down
The way you operate, the way you operate
is straight to the bone, is straight to the bone
And you say that everything I do, it bounces off of you with everything I say
The way I think you'll take it, so I guess I'm breaking it
Every time I open my mouth, and I can't live it down
And I think you know it, so I guess I'm blowing it
Every time I open my mouth, no I can't live it down
The stupid things I'll say under the knife
Sometimes the words I say don't come out right
So all the things I wanted you to hear went unsaid, unsaid, went unsaid
The way I think you'll take it, so I guess I'm breaking it
Every time I open my mouth, no I can't live it down
And I think you know it, so I guess I'm blowing it
Every time I open my mouth, no I can't live it down
I know that I can't live it down, and I know that I can't live it down
