Blame Me
© 2005 Jason Paul Johnston

Nobody to blame but me - And I'll take it square on the chin
If you will begin...to - Untangle this destiny
It's all wrapped up in a ball - And I'm beginning to stall....

So close to the crest of the hill - My legs they are slipping
My breath now is failing - So near to that downward tilt
But my strength it has faltered - Instead of a slope there's a wall here...

Oh, Oh, Oh Where did you go? I thought you were my friend then you cut me short
I I I can’t stand the thought – of losing it all, even something that’s not
Or Or Or just stand in line, that in the end I find is just a big waste of time
Oh Oh Oh I must believe, to see the forest sometimes I’ve got to stand in the tree

Nobody to blame but me -I guess that's half of the problem
Time to pick up a job them - So I'll have some company
Even if they're just as steady - Misery's kind of friendly...


Second by second the clock tock rings out loss, loss, loss, loss
And I'm stuck here in the middle of it all…
Of all that was, and is and what might never be
Or what could be vacuity if it were left up to me

It all was a passing dream
Now I'm wide awake – and I'm ready to take
A dose of reality
I’ll look straight through the mirror
As it starts to look clearer…
