We're All to Blame

by Sum 41

How can we still succeed, taking what we don't need?
Telling lies as alibis, selling all the hate that we breed
SUPERSIZE OUR TRAGEDIES
(You can’t define me, or justify greed)
Bought in the land of the free!
(LAND, FREE)

And we're all to blame
We've gone too far
From pride to shame
We're trying so hard
We're dying in vain
We're hopelessly blissful and blind
To all we are
We want it all With no sacrifice!!

Realize we spend our lives living in a culture of fear
Stand to salute, say thanks to the man of the year
How did we all come to this?
(You can’t define me, or justify greed)
A greed that we just can't resist!
(RE-SIST)

And we're all to blame
We've gone too far
From pride to shame
We're trying so hard
We're dying in vain
We're hopelessly blissful and blind
To all we are
We want it all
Everyone wants it all with no SACRIFICE!!

Tell me now, what have we done? We don't know!
I can't allow what has begun to tear me down,
Believe me now, we have no choice left
With our backs against the wall!!

And now we're all to blame
We've gone too far
From pride to shame
We're hopelessly blissful and blind
When all we needIs something true
To believe
Don't we all?
Everyone, everyone
We will fall

'Cause we're all to blame
We've gone too far
From pride to shame
We're trying so hard
We're dying in vain
We want it all
Everyone, don't we all?

I was distracted by the silly video when I first heard the song, so didn't realize it was so very political until a few months ago when listening on the radio.
