    Question My mouth runs on

    Hi,

    I don't understand the first part of a song called "The View" by Modest Mouse.

    "Your gun went off.
    Well you shot off your mouth and look where it got you.
    My mouth runs on too. "

    Does it mean "Because you shot a gun, you blew your mouth off.
    And my mouth, too"???

    Thank you,
    Tara

    Hello Casiopea,

    Thank you very much for introducing the useful site.
    That exactly what I needed.

    So, I understand it means;
    "You shot a gun and kept talking, and I kept talking too."

    Thank you,
    Tara
