03. Blame Me! Blame Me!

New Surrender
by Anberlin



 

And we could ride all night
To the pace of the 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 youíve made but you canít own
Hate me, hate me, hate me
For every honest word that youíve postponed
Leave me out of this
Your lifeís a sinking ship, so
Blame me, blame me, blame me
For mistakes youíve made but you canít own

And we could stare all day
At problems that wonít go away
Silence is pounding (silence is pounding)
Youíre wearing me down, these corners theyíre rounding

Then we could scream all night
With no resolve still left in sight
Stop saying youíre sorry
All of these words feel so very empty

Blame me! Blame me! Blame me!
For mistakes youíve made but you canít own
Hate me, hate me, hate me
For every honest word that youíve postponed
Leave me out of this
Your lifeís a sinking ship, so
Blame me, blame me, blame me
For mistakes youíve made but you canít own

Torturing ourselves, we must be into the abuse
If youíre the rope that ties us together
Please make me a noose
Ask me to leave
Then beg me just to stay
Used to run to my arms, but now I walk away
Come and go as you please
Iím like a part-time lover with well-worn knees
Well, come on

Blame me! Blame me! Blame me!
For mistakes youíve made but you canít own
Hate me, hate me, hate me
For every honest word that youíve postponed
Leave me out of this
Your lifeís a sinking ship, so
Blame me, blame me, blame me
For mistakes youíve made but you canít own

Behind the Song:
'When other people do not want to admit they are wrong they begin to blame others as a coping mechanism. It seems they do not want to say sorry and would rather strap you to their ship and drown together.

I think one of the greatest gifts we can give as humans is the power to forgive. It takes a lot for a person to confess, it takes even more for the other person to let go.

Admit when you are wrong, you will end life surrounded by those who truly love you for you.' - Stephen Christian
