Nobody's Fault

  • Lord, I must be dreamin'
    What else could this be?
    Everybody's screamin'
    Runnin' for the sea

    Holy lands are sinkin'
    Birds take to the sky
    The prophets all are stinkin' drunk
    I know the reason why

    Eyes are full of desire
    Mind is so ill-at-ease
    Everything is on fire
    Shit piled up to the knees

    Out of rhyme or reason, everyone's to blame
    Children of the season, don't be lame

    Sorry, you're so sorry
    Don't be sorry

    Man has known and now he's blown it
    Upside down and hell's the only sound, we did an awful job
    And now they say it's nobody's fault

    Old San Andreas
    Seven years ago
    Shove it up their Richters
    Red lines stop and go

    Noblemen of courage
    Listen with their ears
    Spoke without discouragin'
    When no one really hears

    One of these days you'll be sorry
    Too many houses on the stilt
    Three million years or just a story
    Four on the floor up to the hilt

    Out of rhyme or reason, everyone's to blame
    Children of the season, don't be lame

    Sorry, you're so sorry
    Don't be sorry

    Man has known and now he's blown it
    Upside down and hell's the only sound, we did an awful job
    And now we're just a little too late

    Eyes are full of desire
    Mind is so ill-at-ease
    Everything is on fire
    Our shit's piled up in debris

    California showtime
    Five o'clock's the news
    Everybody's concubine was prone to take a snooze

    Sorry, you're so sorry
    Don't be sorry

    Man has known and now he's blown it
    Upside down and hell's the only sound, we did an awful job
    And now we're just a little too late Writer/s: BRAD E WHITFORD, STEVEN VICTOR TALLARICO

  • Tim H from Clarkdale, AzThis song needs to be played at very high volume
  • Dane from Green Cove Springs Fla., FlTotally rockin'.I heard this one in the late 80's when I bought Gems on cassette tape.Remember them?Love the song.Very heavy.
  • Tom from Robesonia, PaOne of my favorites from my favorite album. It is definitely their most underated song. It is Aerosmith at their hardest.
  • Steven from Land O Lakes, FlThis Really needs to be played in concert a lot more!
  • Chris from Vienna, AustriaThis song sure kicks ass - but what always struck me as most unusual, was the topic of song. Or are there any other rock or metal songs dealing with californian earthquake-related problems?
  • Ozzi from Brookhaven, PaThis song kicks ass, its so good. Aerosmiths takes on screaming metal. and it definitely was the perfect time for aerosmith to come out in the 70s.
