Hello.
Is any difference in meaning of the sentences?
-I just said it for something to say.
-I just said it to say something.
-I just said it for something to be said.

    It’s not wrong (see the tick in #2). It actually sounds slightly better if you add “in order”. But it’s not the most natural way to say it.
