​Blame Game

This song is by D.C. and appears on the album Mad World (2013).

It's a blame game
It's a blame game
And it's a shame, mayne
That everybody playing Blame Game

We livin' in America with endless possibilities
But how come ain't nobody wanna take responsibility?
So I'ma get up on this track with the illest beat
And let me spit this message even if you cats ain't feelin' me
I see kids playing sports, specifically on the courts
They show up to the tryouts and they talented of course
They breakin' all the ankles and they shootin' out the lights
They thinkin' they some ballers and they game is pretty nice
So they get up on the team and they feel a lil' entitled
'Cause they think it's 'cause of them that their team will win the title
They show up to practice whenever they want and clownin' in the weight room
Then they think that they should play in the game that they were late to
But when they sittin' on the bench and they don't even play a minute
They say "Coach just doesn't like me, that must be why I ain't in it"
They blamin' everybody for why they don't get to play
Except themselves, 'cause they be the ones that was messing around every day

It's a blame game
It's a blame game
And it's a shame, mayne
That everybody playing Blame Game
It's a blame game (it's a game and a lot are tryna play it)
It's a blame game (not Jamie Foxx, but you know you gotta Blame It
It's a blame game (if you doin' it no matter what it's takin')
It's a blame game (take your mindset, go'n ahead and change it)

Everything is manufactured, make excuses for our actions
The whole thing is jacked up, I ain't talkin' 'bout no fractions
I even get to laughin' at these things that start to happen
Esepecially lawsuits, can I get someone to smack 'em?
Like "there must be someone else to blame, 'cause surely I'm not"
Like the chick who sued McDonald's 'cause her coffee was too hot
Really? 'Cause I ain't heard of hot coffee that's cold
"But it can't be my fault!" Does this ever get old?
People love to shift the blame, make it a capital B
But the fact that it belongs to them, they can't even see
Like the pregnant chick who blame the guy 'cause "he seduced me"
But you were blinded by your lust, no wonder you still can't see
So if you're fooling around and having sex with a date
Don't go hunting for some money tryna claim that it's rape
If that's the case you wouldn't brag about it on the next day
We got a word for that around here, and it's called FAKE

It's a blame game
It's a blame game
And it's a shame, mayne
That everybody playing Blame Game
It's a blame game (it's a game and a lot are tryna play it)
It's a blame game (not Jamie Foxx, but you know you gotta Blame It
It's a blame game (if you doin' it no matter what it's takin')
It's a blame game (take your mindset, go'n ahead and change it)

Look, take advantage of your situation
Stay in school, use your brain, get some education
And if you droppin' out of high school that's a lack of dedication
I honestly can't find a better explanation
It's already clear, ain't no need for illustration
And if you fail it's probably 'cause you doin' too much blamin'
And it's sad, got me using all these exclamations
'Cause most of all you blamers living in the greatest nation
In America ain't no reason why you can't succeed
Cut excuses out your life, it's what you do not need
Point the finger at yourself first, then you can proceed
Instead of bogus tales that even you can't believe
Don't get it twisted: I'm empathetic and I can be sympathetic
But excuses that are pathetic turn my thoughts to apathetic
Don't be counting on a rescue, you not prophetic
Try playing the game of LIFE, ain't no paramedics

It's a blame game
It's a blame game
And it's a shame, mayne
That everybody playing Blame Game
It's a blame game (it's a game and a lot are tryna play it)
It's a blame game (not Jamie Foxx, but you know you gotta Blame It
It's a blame game (if you doin' it no matter what it's takin')
It's a blame game (take your mindset, go'n ahead and change it)
