  • This song is about how no one will take the blame in America, and how the media contributes to this. There is always an excuse to blame a problem on someone else.
  • Johnson compares this song to the Children's game "Who stole the cookie from the cookie jar?":
    Who stole the cookie from the cookie jar?
    (suspected perpetrator) stole the cookie from the cookie jar.
    Who me?
    Yes, you!
    Couldn't be!
    Then who? >>
