People make mistakes
Finding everything breaks
And it always is the same
Gotta find someone to blame
Cause these errors that we make
Cause we're all human earthquakes
Yeah we made the hurricane
Yet we're not the ones to blame
GO!

We point the finger even though it's not polite
We condemn the Son of God we're hoping two wrongs make a right

Maybe
Maybe it is them
Maybe
Or Maybe it is me
Maybe
Or maybe it's maybelline
Or maybe it's maybelline

Maybe
Or Maybe it is them
Maybe
Or Maybe it is me
Maybe
Or maybe it's maybelline
Or maybe it's maybelline

People make mistakes
We took the apple from the snake
And it always is the same
Gotta find someone to blame
Our reputations were at stake
But the guilt we could not take
America's gone down the drain
Presidents at fault again

We point the finger even though it's not polite
We condemn the Son of God we're hoping two wrongs make a right

Maybe
Maybe it is them
Maybe
Or Maybe it is me
Maybe
Or maybe it's maybelline
Or maybe it's maybelline

Maybe
Or Maybe it is them
Maybe
Or Maybe it is me
Maybe
Or maybe it's maybelline
Or maybe it's maybelline

The truth is excuses are lame
Accept consequence
Accept the blame
We're all sinners
We're all unclean
Well maybe we're born with it
Or maybe it's maybelline

Or Maybe
Maybe it is them
Maybe
Or Maybe it is me
Maybe
Or maybe it's maybelline
Or maybe it's maybelline

    This song is, overall, telling us about the stupidity of people. We blame something else when it wasn't that person of thing's fault. Example: Some people blame guns for the school shootings. However, if you leave a gun in a room unattended, not a single shot is fired. People chose to use it, not the gun. This is, in a way, shown in the song "We took the apple (of the tree of knowledge) from the snake (the devil)." So what is the point on blaming something that has nothing to do with something except being used as a tool? People of this world are like wrecking balls to the building that which is the Earth. We blame the leader for almost everything, or blame the parents for how a student acts. It's not always their fault. They are probably only responsible for a small fraction of all that they are blamed for. So now we might ask: How do we stop all this? In truth, there is only one way that most of the world would deny, and go down any other path that does not lead to the true final destination. However, I now ask you: What would you think if I called you a sinner? I know I am one, but I am willing to accept Jesus' forgiveness. His question is: Are you willing to accept his forgiveness? Remember that because of the choices we made, we have gone down a dark road.
