Blame Game
Kanye West Lyrics


Whose fault?

Let's play the blame game, I love you, more
Let's play the blame game for sure
Let's call out names, names, I hate you, more
Let's call out names, names, for sure

I'll call you bitch for short
As a last resort, and my first resort
You call me motherfucker for long
At the end of it you know we both were wrong

But I love to play the blame game, I love you more
Let's play the blame game for sure
Let's call out names, names, I hate you, more
Let's call out names, names, for sure

On a bathroom wall I wrote
"I'd rather argue with you than to be with someone else" (else, else, else)
I took a piss and dismiss it like fuck it and I went and found somebody else
Fuck arguing harvesting the feelings, yo I'd rather be by my fucking self
'Til about two A.M. And I call back and I hang up and I start to blame myself
Somebody help

Let's play the blame game, I love you, more
Let's play the blame game for sure
Let's call out names, names, I hate you, more
Let's call out names, names, for sure

You weren't perfect but you made life worth it
Stick around, some real feelings might surface
Been a long time since I spoke to you
In a bathroom gripping you up, fucking and choking you
What the hell was I supposed to do?
I know you ain't getting this type of dick from that local dude
And if you are I hope you have a good time
'Cause I'll definitely be having mine

(And you ain't finna see a) mogul get emotional
Every time I hear 'bout other, niggas that's stroking you
Lying say I hit you
He sitting there consoling you
Rubbing my name threw the mud
Who's provoking you?
You should be grateful a nigga like me ever noticed you
Now you noticeable and can't nobody get control you
One a.M. And can't nobody get a hold of you
I'm calling your brothers phone like what was I supposed to do?
Even though I knew, he never told the truth
He was just gon' say whatever you gon' told him to
At a certain point I had to stop asking questions
Y'all got dirt on each other like mud wrestlers
I heard he bought some Coke with my money
That ain't right girl
You getting blackmailed for that white girl
You always said, "Yeezy I ain't you're right girl
You probably find one of them "I like art"-type girls"
All of the lights, she was caught in the hype girl
And I was satisfied being in love with the lie
Now who to blame? You to blame? Me to blame?
For the pain and it be pouring every time when it rained

Let's play the blame game
I love you, more
Let's play the blame game for sure

Things used to be, now they not
Anything but us is who we are
Disguising ourselves as secret lovers
We've become public enemies
We walk away like strangers in the street
Gon' for eternity
We erased one another
So far from where we came
With so much of everything, how do we leave with nothing?
Lack of visual empathy equates the meaning of L-O-V-E
Hatred and attitude tear us entirely
Chloe Mitchell

Let's play the blame game, I love you, more
Let's play the blame game for sure
Let's call out names, names, I hate you, more
Let's call out names, names, for sure

I can't love you this much
I can't love you this much
I can't love you this much
I can't love you this much
I can't love you this much
No, I can't love you this much
I can't love you this much
I can't love you this much

And I know that you are somewhere doing your thing
And when the phone called it just ring and ring
You ain't pick up but your phone accidentally called me back
And I heard the whole thing

I heard the whole thing
Whole thing, whole thing, whole thing

Oh my God
Baby you done took this shit to the nother motherfuckin' level!
Now a neighborhood nigga
Like me ain't supposed to be gettin' no pussy like this
Goddamn, Goddamn! Who taughtyou how to get sexy for a nigga?
(Yeezy taught me)
You never use to talk dirty, but now you you goddamn disgusting
My, my God, where'd you learn that?
(Yeezy taught me)
Look at you, motheruckin' butt ass naked, with them, Jimmy Choos on
Who taught you how to put some motherfucking Jimmy Choos on?
(Yeezy thought me)
Yo you took your pussy game up a whole 'nother level
This is some Cirque du Soleil pussy now shit!
You done went all porno on a nigga OK
And I, and I love it
And I thank you, I thank you, my dick thanks you!
How did you learn, how, how did your pussy game come up?
(Yeezy thought me)
I was fuckin' parts of your pussy I never fucked before
I was in there like, "Ooh shit I never been here before"
I've never even seen this part of pussy town before
It's like you got this shit re-upholstered or some shit
What the fuck happened?
Who, who the fuck got your pussy all re-upholstered?
(Yeezy re-upholstered my pussy)
You know what, I gotta thank Yeezy
And when I see that nigga I'ma thank him
I'ma buy the album
I'ma download that motherfucker, I'ma shoot a bootlegger!
That's how good I feel about this nigga
Ahh, I still can't believe you got me this watch
This motherfucker is the exact motherfucker I wanted!
You went to bezel! This is the motherfucker I wanted
I saw this shit
I saw it, Twista had this shit on in The Source
I remember! Twista had this motherfucker on in The Source
That's right, that's right!
Yo yo babe, yo yo this the best birthday ever!
Where you learn to treat a nigga like this?
(Yeezy taught me)
Yeezy taught you well, Yeezy taught you well

@josh it's not.....there's been numerous rumors about Kanye and cocaine during that time period.

As far as getting black males in the verb tense

The most infamous example if that that anybody should know is Emitt Till

Kanye's music has always been very social justice oriented to some Degree....

Not to mention Kanye is also a very detail oriented person. Which is what takes his art a level up...but at first glance the stuff he does and says can seem very arbitrary even to well thought individuals.

@josh

Black maled- as in the historic draw backs for black men dating white women

Blackmail- as in having information used against you

Blackmail in this instance specifically pertaining to cocaine (white girl)


Black male for the white girl... Could also be a play on words for interracial sex on some othelo typse shit.

Str8 Krillin it.

I'm just gonna say it, this song is the best on the album.
Everyone likes Runaway, it has the meaningful message and it's very cathartic, but Blame Game is justobjectively the better song.

-The Lyrics are unapologetically raw, relatable and vulnerable and straight forward, letting you hear and feel every detail of the story almost and does so without being in your face about it
- The production is as on point as it could possibly be keeping the tone consistent while the sublty and not so subtly accentuating the straight forward lyric's raw emotions of confusion, anger, betrayal, as he tries to talk it out with himself
-The instrumental and chorus tie them together, so soundly keeping the momentum of the song in it's high and low points as if you were riding a roller coaster

And with that it, all comes together and plays out like a musical or music video you are watching directly form Kanye's mind, a memory with a three act structure, It kind of doesn't feel like a song, in a good way, it feels like a long album skit that took a life of it's own. Though it's a sad, song it isn't depressing or dreary, all the emotions in this song coming together only make it powerful and encaptivating yet messy, like a beautiful car crash.
No other song has anything like this to the point this song does, and these are all great songs, this song however just takes it to
"a whole 'nother level!"
