"Blame Me! Blame Me!" as written by and Nathan R Young Christian E Mcalhaney....
And we could ride all night
To the place of a blinking light
Wishing traffic was faster
Traffic was faster
Keeping safe distance
But courting disaster
We could dance all night
To the sounds of a starting fight
Hoping change would come around
Change would come around
Amazing division
How sweet the sound

Blame Me! Blame Me! Blame Me!
For mistakes you've made
But you can't own
Hate Me! Hate Me! Hate Me!
For every honest word
That you postpone
Leave me out of this
Lights on sinking ships
Are gleaming! gleaming! gleaming!
For mistakes you've made
But you can't own

And we could stare all day
At problems that will go away
Silence is pounding
Silence is pounding
You're wearing me down
These corners, they're rounding
We could scream all night
You know there's love still left inside
Stop saying you're sorry
All of these words feel so very empty

Blame Me! Blame Me! Blame Me!
For mistakes you've made
But you can't own
Hate Me! Hate Me! Hate Me!
For every honest word
That you postpone
Leave me out of this
Lights on sinking ships
Are gleaming! gleaming! gleaming!
For mistakes you've made
But you can't own

Torturing ourselves
We must be into the abuse
If you're the rope that ties us together
Then please make me a new sad speech
Or leave and beg me just to stay
Used to run to my arms
But now I'm pulling away
Come and go as you please
I'm like a part time lover
With well worn knees
Well come on

    General CommentI'm not too sure about the gleamings, I think it might be another "Blame Me."

    Seems like Stephen's girlfriend wasn't too kind to him.

    General CommentCorrection on the last verse.

    Torturing ourselves
    We must be into the abuse
    If you're the rope that ties us together
    Then please make me a new sad speech
    Or leave and beg me just to stay
    Used to run to my arms
    But now I'm pulling away
    Come and go as you please
    I'm like a part time lover
    With well worn knees
    Well come on

    General Commenti think the second line says "to the pace of a blinking light", not place...
    but that might have been a typing error.. maybe?
    i dont know.

    General CommentNo, it really does say "lights on sinking ships are gleaming".
    You know, like people that're going down, but doing it in style?

    "Amazing division, how sweet the sound."
    What a great line.
    Stephen never fails to amaze me. :)

    General CommentI adore this song. The part that jumps out to me most is:
    And we could ride all night To the pace of a blinking light
    (About continuing life, going through the day-to-day motions and patterns)
    Wishing traffic was faster
    (wishing for change, but the change doesn't seem probable or accessible)
    Keeping safe distance
    (not rocking the boat)
    But courting disaster
    (knowing things are about to fall apart)

    I think the song is about a relationship that's slowly falling apart, since the people aren't treating each other right. They are letting things go, when they should be addressed, and being victimized by, and victimizing the other person. The relationship is going to pieces, because it isn't being maintained.

    My InterpretationI think it's about a relationship that's falling apart, but the girl is blaming him for the break, and not owning up. Something like that. :)
