Silver Spoon

This song is by Shannon Murray and appears on the album Scream (2004).

I wasn't born with a silver spoon in my mouth

But I was born to privilege just like every white everybody else

And now I am beginning to see that old argument's not so convincing

But hey hey no way, you know it wasn't me

Because the system is set up so the system can take all the blame

Then you and I can breath deeply and feel a little less ashamed

Because the system took their land, it took their lives, yeah it took their pride

But hey hey no way, you know it wasn't me

Who we gonna blame for our mistakes

Tell me who we gonna blame for our mistakes

Yeah who we gonna blame for our mistakes

So we don't have to pay

I am heiress to the burden of manifest destiny

Because everything that I have was stolen from somebody else just for me

If we could just stomach the truth then maybe the truth would set us free

But hey hey no way, you know it wasn't me

Who we gonna blame for our mistakes

Tell me who we gonna blame for our mistakes

Yeah who we gonna blame for our mistakes

So we don't have to pay

I mean no disrespect to the people who like pawns secured the empire's land

But how can we look at cause and effect and still not understand

Let's get out of the business of pointing our fingers and throwing up our hands

Yeah way, yeah way you know it was me
