Surrogate – Shift The Blame lyrics

This tragic thing will spread it's tragic wings
And float into the sky
Where people in this town will turn a prying eye

The confidence you once held in your friends
Oh, crumbled into sand
Shattering any hope to be ever again

The people in this town, they never sleep
They're careful not to keep
Secrets that involve anyone but them

And they will run their mouths behind your back
All for one good laugh
And deconstruct your life, you'll never get back

With monumental failure, comes monumental fame
I think it's more than you can take
With monumental failure, comes monumental shame
So I think it's time you shift the blame

The keepers of the bars downtown on Main
Know your story but not your name
They've heard a hundred times from the flies that live there

Is that the kind of life you want to lead
The friends you want to keep?
The stories you want told to everyone back home

With monumental failure, comes monumental fame
I think it's more than you can take
With monumental failure, comes monumental shame
So I think it's time you shift the blame

Even with your unrelenting eyes
On the landscape, oh, so sleepy
Accidents with no reason or rhyme
Seem to have your name and number, oh

So I think it's time you shift the blame
