Imagine someone had a very bad tongue / mouth [in our language "tongue" is the figurative responsible body limb for what is said and not mouth] and speaks very bluntly and without considering what will their words cause to happen or what further consequences their words will have.
There is a metaphor in our language which says:
- Sometimes the tongue talks at your life / the head’s cost"
meaning that what you say may lead you even to death. Actually it refers to ancient kings in our land who all expected all people, no matter who, just respect them and obey every single commands which they used to issue at the time, otherwise, they may be killed.
I need to know if there is any equivalent proverb for such an effect of what you say in English?
I found another English saying, but I guess it doesn't work either.
