Straight onto the beating path
Phase down into its aftermath
Kills me to find myself here at last

I blame it on my human side
I blame it on the other guy
I blame the stars on the boulevard

A perfect body, a perfect smile
The perfect lover impeccably in style

I used to be, I’d laugh it off
Now it’s just this joke I got
A halo promise in a sinner’s dream
The punch line is I always swim upstream

I blame it on my human side
I blame it on the other guy

I used to be, I’d laugh it off
Now it’s just this joke I got
A halo promises a sinner’s dream
The punch line is I always swim upstream, upstream

I used to be, I’d laugh it off
Now it’s just this joke I got
A halo promises a sinner’s dream
The punch line is I always swim upstream, upstream
