  • Can I have a moment of your time?
    Just a single second so you see that indeed we'll be leaving you behind,
    Before I cross that line
    Turn it up so you can hear the bells crashing through the clouds as it rain down the drain
    We know all too well, it's a living hell

    Careful what you say and who you say and who you say it to
    Careful what you say and who you say you it to
    Baby you talked too much and you were asking for it, asking for it, asking
    You can blame bad luck but you were asking for it, asking for it, asking
    When all is said and done, you need to tie your tongue
    'Cause when you spit on everyone
    You were arguing and now you're asking for it, asking for it, asking

    Caught up in the gutter once again
    Crashing through the mud, throwing lies, cutting ties until the sidewalk ends
    And the truth begins
    Power through the point of no return
    Famously arranged all the same I hope you change if that world is gonna turn
    It's not my concern

    Careful what you say and who you say and who you say it to
    Careful what you say and who you say you it to
    Baby you talked too much and you were asking for it, asking for it, asking
    You can blame bad luck but you were asking for it, asking for it, asking
    When all is said and done, you need to tie your tongue
    'Cause when you spit on everyone
    You were arguing and now you're asking for it, asking for it, asking

    (Oh oh oh)
    You are, you are, you are, you are, you are asking for it
    You are, you are, you are, you are, you are asking for it

    Careful what you say and who you say and who you say it to
    Careful what you say and who you say you it to
    Baby you talked too much and you were asking for it, asking for it, asking
    You can blame bad luck but you were asking for it, asking for it, asking
    When all is said and done, you need to tie your tongue
    'Cause when you spit on everyone
    You were arguing and now you're asking for it, asking for it, asking

    You know you're asking for it, asking for it
    You know you're asking for it, asking Writer/s: BRENT SMITH, DAVE BASSETT
