Song Meaning
Verse 1
It wasn't me who shamed you, it's not fair to say that
You wanted to work I gave you a chance at that
It wasn't me who hurt you, that's more credit than I'm worth
Don't threaten me with the things you'll do to you
Verse 2
It wasn't me who shamed you, it wasn't me who brought you down
You did it to yourself without any help from me
It wasn't me who hurt you, I showed you possibilities
The problems you had were there before you met me
Verse 3
I didn't say this had to be
You can't blame these things on me
It wasn't me, it wasn't me, it wasn't me
I know she's dead, it wasn't me
Verse 4
It wasn't me who changed you, you did it to yourself
I'm not an excuse for the hole that you dropped in
I'm not simple minded but I'm no father to you at all
Death exists but you do things to yourself
Verse 5
I never said give up control
I never said stick a needle in your arm and die
It wasn't me, it wasn't me, it wasn't me
I know he's dead but it wasn't me
Verse 6
It wasn't me who shamed you, who covered you with mud
You did it to yourself without any help from me
You act as if I could've told you or stopped you like some god
But people never listen and you know that that's a fact
Verse 7
I never said slit your wrists and die
I never said throw your life away
It wasn't me, it wasn't me, it wasn't me
You're killing yourself - you can't blame me
