don't be scared of things you say
don't be scared of things you've ever said
cos those words can only hurt you
if they stay locked inside your pretty head

they ricochet
they ricochet
right off the walls and start to crumble
they spin around
they spin around
until your mind begins to rumble

think about it
think about it
you could analyze forever
but don't forget that
don't forget that
now is always better than never

just take the time
to take the time
and over time those words may be forgotten
say yes or no
or do or don't
and we will simply take what we have gotten

someone would have said it
just be glad that it was you
you tasted every letter
and you'r a e i o u's

and isn't it better when it finally escapes
so your carefully picked words have the time to resonate

say it for the
say it for the
people that never had the breath
there's no question
there's no question
worth the weight to carry to your death
