Blameless

Album: We Won't Be Shaken (2013)
  • This is a track from Building 429's sixth album, We Won't Be Shaken. We spoke to lead singer Jason Roy when he was still working on the song and he told us why he was excited about it. "It says, 'I know exactly who I am, all the places that I've been. I was just a mess before it left me broken on the floor. I used to die inside my head with all my pain and my regret, wanted to be someone else who did things right and never fell,'" he explained. "And then the chorus twist is just amazing. I mean, the chorus says, "But I'm not who I used to be. I'm blameless. You have made me blameless. Sin has been made nameless. It doesn't matter who I was before, because I am shameless." And that's where we're trying to go with the record right now." (For more check out our interview with Jason Roy.)
