Why is it they just can’t see, none of my deeds belong to me?

Racism, sexism or poor childhood. That explains why my actions aren’t good.

Sure I steal, but it’s not my fault, “corporate greed!” I say when I’m caught.

No matter how many arrests, you hear me whine, “the fault to bear isn’t mine!”

Obesity is what I’ve got, it wasn’t me – “it was the chocolate!”

You took the time to engage in studies, while I played around and got high with my buddies.

Now you have a decent career, so unfair just listen here!

Effort has never been an inclination, “I’m a victim of discrimination!”

I should be the winner in this game, how could you say that I’m to blame?

Kryptonite are these words to me: guilty, lazy or accountability!

“Victims!” “Victims!” hear the voices, victims only of their own bad choices.
