Scapegoat

By Bruce Clifford

You're a diamond in the rough
You look so serious
They took this all too far
They can't let it go

You're a diamond in the rough
It all seems so dangerous
Out of sight, out of mind
Ignore the truth, set it aside

Living with your double standards
Ignoring the truth
You won't let it go
And this I know

I'm your scapegoat for everything that you've done wrong
I'm your scapegoat for all of the things you think shouldn't belong
I'm your scapegoat so you can have someone to take the blame
I'm your scapegoat for you to lock it up real tight and ease your pain
You punish those around you and think it's sane

You reach out when it's right for you
It's all one sided with a bad attitude

Living with your double standards
Avoiding the truth
You continue to hold
You can't let it go
And this I know

I'm your scapegoat for every word in every song
I'm your scapegoat for all of the things you think I've done wrong
I'm your scapegoat so you can have someone to take the blame
I'm your scapegoat for you to lock it up real tight and ease your pain
You punish those around you and think it's sane
Listen to the rain
