5 by Green Day Come together like a foot in a shoe Only this time I think I stuck my foot in my mouth Thinking out loud and acting in vain Knocking over anyone that stands in my way Sometimes I need to apologize Sometimes I need to admit that I ain’t right Sometimes I should just keep my mouth shut, Or only say hello Sometimes I still feel I’m walking alone Walk on eggshells on my old stomping ground Yet there’s really no one left that’s hanging around Isn’t that another familiar face Too drunk to figure out they’re fading away

Thoreau “Telling the truth to people who misunderstand you is generally promoting falsehood.” - Anthony Hawkins “A truth that’s told with bad intent beats all the lies you can invent.” - William Blake
