Chumbawamba – Scapegoat lyrics

Aftershave and smoke and the same unfunny jokes
They say they'll take you anywhere but there
Believe every half-whispered, half-remembered lie
Where truth is a luxury they can't afford to buy

Scapegoat, looking 4 a scapegoat...Scapegoat, looking 4 a scapegoat...
There's always someone else for you to blame...
There's always someone else for you to blame...

Backed into a corner he barricades his life
Fastens up the shutters every night
This island is big enough for every castaway
But most of us are looking 'round for someone else to blame

Scapegoat, looking 4 a scapegoat...Scapegoat, looking 4 a scapegoat...
There's always someone else for you to blame...
There's always someone else for you to blame...
There's always someone else for you to blame...
There's always someone else for you to blame...

There's always someone else for you to blame...
There's always someone else for you to blame...
There's always someone else for you to blame...
There's always someone else for you to blame...

There's always (Scapegoat) someone else for you to blame...
(Looking for a scapegoat)
There's always (Scapegoat) someone else for you to blame...
(Looking for a scapegoat)
There's always (Scapegoat) someone else for you to blame...
(Looking for a scapegoat)
There's always (Scapegoat) someone else for you to blame...
(Looking for a scapegoat)

[Excerpts shot from the 1996 movie "Brassed Off"]
(Pete Postlethwaite as Danny) "Oh aye, they can knock out a bloody good tune. But what the fuck does that matter?" [gasps emotionally, close to tears] "And now I'm going to take my boys out onto the town. Thank you." [walks out darkly, rapturous applause]
