    Blame it on the Tetons. Yeah, I need a scapegoat now.


    No my dog won't bite you, though it had the right to. You oughta give her credit cuz she knows I would've let it happen.

    Progression x2


    Blame it on the weekends. God, I need a cola now.


    Oh we mumble loudly, wear our shame so proudly. Wore our blank expressions, trying to look interesting.

     

    Blame it all on me ‘cuz God I need a cold one now.

     

    Progression x2

    All them eager actors gladly taking credit for the lines created by people tucked away from sight

     

    is just a window from the room we're bound to. If you find a way out, oh would you just let me know how?

     

    Would you just let me know how?

     

    Blame it on the web but the spider's your problem now.

     

    Language is for liquid that we're all dissolved in. Great for solving problems, after it creates a problem.

    Blame it on the Tetons. God, I need a scapegoat now.

    Everyone's a building burning with no one to put the fire out. Standing at the window looking out, waiting for time to burn us down. Everyone's an ocean drowning with no on really to show how. They might get a little better air if they turned themselves into a cloud.
