I would turn on the TV
But it's so embarrassing
To see all the other people
I don't know what they mean

And it was magic at first
When they spoke without sound
But now this world is gonna hurt
You better turn that thing down turn it around

"Well it wasn't me", Say the boy with the gun
Sure I pulled the trigger but it needed to be done
Because life's been killin' me ever since it begun
You can't blame me 'cause I'm too young

You cant blame me, sure the killer was my son
But I didn't teach him to pull the trigger of the gun
It's the killing on his TV screen
You can't blame me, it's those images he sees

Well you can't blame me says the media man
Well I wasn't the one that came up with the plan
And I just point my camera what the people wanna see
Man it's a two way mirror and you can't blame me

"You can't blame me", Says the singer of the song
Or the maker of the movie which he based his life on
It's only entertainment and as anyone can see
It's smoke machines and make-up, man, you can't fool me

It was you it was me it was every man
We all got the blood on our hands
We only receive what we demand
And if we want hell then hell is what well have

And I would turn on the TV
But it's so embarrassing
To see all the other people
Don't even know what they mean

And it was magic at first
But let every one down
And now this world's gonna hurt
You better turn it around turn it around
