    BLAME

    If blame could change the past, I'd say sing blame as a song
    In fact, I would say point the finger of blame all day long
    Blame mother, father, sister, brother,... blame everyone
    Blame any and everything under the sun
    Make your failurs and mistakes other peoples; falut
    Creat scapegoats at will,... without a thought
    Make others responsible for the wrongs in your live
    And hold back forgiveness for the hurts that cut like a knife

    If blame could re-write history my advice would be to blame the whole world
    Blame heaven and earth for the problems that in your direction have been hurld
    Hold everyone else accountable for your misfortune and circumstance
    Make others responsible for your bad breaks in life,... whenever you have a chance
    Hold contempt for everyone that comes into yourline ofsight
    Have nothing in your heart but unforgiveness, bitterness and spite
    Go into that part of your soul where disappointment lies
    And give the gift of disgust and despise

    If blame could turn back time, I'd say blame 'till your hearts content
    Blame your state of affairs on your surroundings, for that'll be time best spent
    Blame your neighbors, friends strangers,... your sisters and your brothers
    Spend all of your time and energy blaming others
    **** the whole world to hell, that'll solve all ya' woes
    At the very least it'll make you feel better, and soothe ya' soul
    Paint everything blame in all ya' seeing
    Set your face like a flint to be an angry being

    Now lets look at reality, with which real life rings
    To tell the truth, blame doesn't really change a thing
    Blame is used loosely and with much liberty
    Blame is often confused with accountability
    Accountability holds accountable those who need to take into account
    The things that were done in the past, and in the future, do right about
    Holding people and events accountable isn't the same
    As simply naming the situation blame

    I can relate to this one. For many years I was drowning inside the cesspool of blame. Thank you... blame is never the solution to the problem.

    Sometimes we don't see our own mistakes while knee deep inside chaos, but when it dies down, we can view our part clearly. Speak the truth, speak the truth...
