We all have responsibilities
We all have a social debt
And if there is a man free of guilt
I haven't met him yet

So now you're backed in a corner
You're under verbal attack
They're pointing fingers like guns in your face and nobody got your back

You got to blame somebody for all your fucking mistakes
So someone else will pay for all the choices that you make
You got to take responsibility for what you do but you just point you're finger at somebody innocent and say:

"Now I don't feel so fucking good
No I don't feel so fucking good
No I don't feel so fucking good
No I don't, I need somebody to blame!"
(Got blame? Got blame.)

So one day; somebody asks you how you feel and instead of telling you the truth you reel off a list of things you think they want to hear because its easier that way and so they treat you like this completely different person because all they know about you is misinformation, and you gradually detach yourself from all your actions thinking:

"Oh I don't know why I don't mean what I say
I don't know why I don't feel what I say..
You have been lying about your feeling for so long that you've forgotten who you are!"

You got to blame somebody for all your fucking mistakes
So someone else will pay for all the bad choices that you make
And it is all your fault that you feel angry like you do
But you cannot admit it and you're stuck thinking:

"Now I don't feel so fucking good
No I don't feel so fucking good
No I don't feel so fucking good
No I don't, I need somebody to blame!
Yeah blame!"

    General CommentI went to see dredg the other week and Reuben were supporting. They played this song and I thought it superb. Great riff, good lyrics. Good band.

    I guess the subject matter is self explanatory - seems to be about people who pass the buck, shift the blame and don't take responsibility for their own actions. And we all know someone like that.

    General CommentThese lyrics aren't quite right. Here are the correct ones in the CD booklet:

    We all have responsibilities
    We all have a social debt
    And if there is a man free of guilt
    I haven't met him yet

    So now you're backed in a corner
    You're under verbal attack
    They're pointing fingers like guns in your face and nobody got your back

    You got to blame somebody for all your fucking mistakes
    So someone else will pay for all the choices that you make
    You got to take responsibility for what you do but you just point you're finger at somebody innocent and say:

    "Now I don't feel so fucking good
    No I don't feel so fucking good
    No I don't feel so fucking good
    No I don't, I need somebody to blame!"
    (Got blame? Got blame.)

    So one day; somebody asks you how you feel and instead of telling you the truth you reel off a list of things you think they want to hear because its easier that way and so they treat you like this completely different person because all they know about you is misinformation, and you gradually detach yourself from all your actions thinking:
