Foot In Your Mouth

This song is by Hoobastank and appears on the album They Sure Don't Make Basketball Shorts Like They Used To (1998).

I recognize that typical, synical,
Smile you wear in the front row.
I can hear you tellin' everyone 'bout the other show.
You're the one with all of the friends.
But none are real 'cause you're a hypocrite.
Just remember that you did it yourself, and you wonder how...
Just don't stick your foot in your mouth.
You never thought before you spoke!
You tell me what I wanna hear,
Turn around and tell another,
Who you think you know.
Did you really think it wouldn't get back to me?
Fabrications that you spun so well...
Always ready with a tabloid story to tell.
So don't complain to me, shut your mouth and go quietly...
Cause it didn't have to be this way and you wonder how...
Just don't stick your foot in your mouth!
Didn't have to be this way...
You tell me what I wanna hear,
Turn around and tell another,
Who you think you know.
But no one cares what you wanna say,
Don't bug me or any other.
Just shut your mouth and go!
How could you live with yourself?
Knowing all the lies that you tell,
How could you live with yourself?
I know what you want and what you'll do,
To get your foot in the door or to just break through but
You're never gonna get to where you want right now...
Cause you stick your foot in your mouth!
All you have to do is change...
You tell me what I wanna hear,
Turn around and tell another,
Who you think you know.
But no one cares what you wanna say,
Don't bug me or any other.
Just shut your mouth and go!
