Go ahead … Blame me!
Then maybe the buck will stop right here!
So you’re offended … or disappointed,
Because I’ve said things that you don’t want to hear.
It’s alright … I’ve got big shoulders,
I can support your burden of blame,
If it really makes you feel better,
But … are you sure that you’d feel the same?
If it were I who claimed to have a grievance with you,
Because I couldn’t identify or agree,
With what you said … about how you feel …
Would you like me to treat you …
the way that you’ve treated me?
Proceed with caution … make every shot count,
I’m always looking for more material to use,
If I’ve provoked you into some reaction,
And made you reappraise your personal views,
I’m proud to be a target!
If it’s as a result of things that I’ve said,
It won’t drastically change my perspectives,
They are deeply ingrained in my head,
You can tear out my tongue … burn out my eyes,
Or try to intimidate me into submission.
Go on … behave like a tyrannical bully,
But that certainly won’t cure your tunnel vision!
