Blame It On The Tetons

This song is by Modest Mouse and appears on the album Good News for People Who Love Bad News (2004).

Blame it on the Tetons, yeah, I need a scapegoat now
No, my dog won't bite you, though it had the right to
You oughta give her credit 'cause she knows I would've let it happen

Blame it on the weekends, God, I need a Cola now
Oh, we mumble loudly, wear our shame so proudly
Wore our blank expressions tryin' to look interestin'

Blame it all on me 'cause, God, I need a cold one now

All them eager actors gladly taking credit
For the lines created by the people tucked away from sight
It's just a window from the room we're bound to
If you find a way out, oh, would you just let me know how
Would you just let me know how

Blame it on the web, but the spider's your problem now
Language is the liquid that we're all dissolved in
Great for solving problems after it creates a problem

Blame it on the Tetons, God, I need a scapegoat now

Everyone's a building burning
With no one to put the fire out
Standing at the window looking out
Waiting for time to burn us down
Everyone's an ocean drowning
With no one really to show how
They might get a little better air
If they turned themselves into a cloud
