lyrics

You left the original in the copy machine
And the door put up a fight
You should be pushing not pulling
This heavy guilt through your life

Just think “It’s not my fault”
“I can’t tell sugar from salt,
(My fault) when they clearly look the same,”
(My fault) you and I are not to blame
For things so poorly made

Cause everyone’s turned the wrong burner on once or twice
Despite the helpful symbols painted on the side of the stove
Well it’s not just the old you do it too

They say hot water is on the left
And that the cold is on the right (yeah right)
And that I type really slowly
That I’m the hunt-n-peck type!!

Then why are these light switches taped down?
And why is that thermostat encaged in plastic?
Are you getting annoyed?
Are you becoming enraged?

Then say with me!! “It's not my fault,
I can't tell sugar from salt,
(My fault) when they clearly look the same
(My fault) I'll just keep refreshing the page…
(My fault) I can't swap cell phone calls...
(My fault) or work the automatic bathroom...
(My fault) or program my sprinklers…"
(My fault) but you and I are not to blame
For things so poorly made

Because everyone's turned the wrong burner on once or twice
Despite the helpful symbols painted on the side of the stove
Well it's not just the old you do it too
