​Things We Say

This song is by Defiance, Ohio and appears on the album Defiance, Ohio/Ghost Mice - Split (2004).

(Originally by Gorilla Biscuits)

Humor's got a place like all things,
Be aware of the pain it can sometimes bring.
A joke to you might not be so funny,
So take the time and think it out
Before you open up your mouth.

I can't believe the things we say
A cutting word can ruin days.
I can't believe the things we say
Now I wish I hadn't spoken.
Can't you learn to take a fucking joke?

We say things we don't mean but friends
Understand,
Strength and humor don't always go hand in hand.
A joke to you might not be so funny,
So take the time and think it out
Before you open up your mouth.

I can't believe the things we say
A cutting word can ruin days.
I can't believe the things we say
Now I wish I hadn't spoken.
Can't you learn to take a fucking joke?

But no one's laughing.
I wish I could crack a smile,
But I can't.
I know he's such a fucking jerk,
But jerks hurt too
And I'm not that cool
That I can laugh.
I see, because it's happened to me
And I think I was an asshole
When I said what I said.
It's just a sick sense of humor rolls around in my head.
'Cause we've had our fun
At your expense
- And that's wrong
- And we know it!

You said we were friends.
Well for friendship's sake,
Let's give it a break!

I can't believe the things we say
A cutting word can ruin days.
I can't believe the things we say
Now I wish I hadn't spoken.
Can't you learn to take a fucking joke?
