06. Share In The Blame

Overdressed
by Caedmon's Call



 

donít blame the bullet for the wars you have sown
donít blame the winter when youíve forgotten your coat
when you make the same deals for a hundred years
and you wanna make a change
you gotta hold up the mirror and share in the blame

donít blame your brother for the color of his skin
donít blame your neighbor for the house he lives in
from the same cloth, we are made of, we are just the same
you gotta hold up the mirror and share in the blame

like a coming of age, I am learning how to say
all the failures Iím dragging behind
finding freedom to speak, freedom to release
oh tonight I wanna make peace with you

donít blame the writer for the doubts in your head
donít blame the preacher for the lovers in your bed
when you find out that the world is round, everything is rearranged
you gotta hold up the mirror, and share in the blame

chorus

donít blame the president, donít blame the king
donít blame your history for what might have been
we will be free where the grass is green and the lion is tame
if we just hold up the mirror now and share in the blame
