Aerosmith Nobody's Fault Lyrics

Last updated: 01/01/2014 12:59:58 PM

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 but how 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
Shit piled up in debris

California showtime
Five o'clock's the news
Said everybody's concubine
Was GOIN' 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

Wicked Beat | Reviewer: Stixx Murphy | 1/1/14

This is an underrated song. The guitar is tuned low which gives it's heavy sound. Joey Kramer plays this slow beat with hi-hats opening & closing. It sounds easy but its not. Ive been playing drums for 30 yrs and still cant relly figure out whats going on. ha ha ha Check it out very cool song.....

Brad Whitford classic | Reviewer: Bartman2001 | 8/23/13

This IS my favorite Aerosmith song and without question one of their best! Reading the comments below however shows how little respect Brad Whitford gets. This song was written by Brad Whitford and Steven Tyler. Joe had NOTHING to do with the writing of it and only played on it. Check out other songs Brad has written with the band they are ALWAYS among their best (Last Child, Round and Round, Kings & Queens, Shela, Voodoo Medicine Man). If the main thing you get from this song is parallels to today’s political climate all I can say is yawn. Ever changing current events have nothing to do with this rock & roll masterpiece. Aerosmith’s finest song from their finest album, capolavoro if you please: 1976’S ROCKS!

Historical Lyrics/ Steven and Joe are the prophets | Reviewer: Susan | 5/10/13

This is prophecy. I have met both of these unbelievable song writers. They called it, listen to the lyrics and apply it to what's going on in the world today. Take out the San Andrea's (earthquake)part, add in your own perception (government, corporations, wars)THE RESULT IS THE SAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!MAN HAS KNOWN IT, NOW HE'S BLOWN IT, UP-SIDE DOWN AND HELL'S THE ONLY SOUND, WE DID AN AWFUL JOB AND NOW IT'S JUST A LITTLE TOO LATE.

Rocks | Reviewer: Kenney Mazon | 10/29/12

Rocks is by far the best rock kicking album they put out. I understand that to stay in the lick of things you got to go with the flow, but guys get back to one more hard rock album.
Aerosmith Rocks

pay attention | Reviewer: d.g. | 5/2/12

I never knew a Steven Tyler, but in the day I knew a Steven Tallerico. Hung out with him for several years in high-school & later watched him perform live a couple times (maybe more than a couple times: I drank heavily at the time & don't recall everything--now I'm sober--yeaaaaah!!!) at local MA spots with a group called the Left Bank. I never met Joe Perry personally. But I knew who he was--locally, he was referred to as "the guitarist from Hopedale". That's all I knew about Joe Perry. Anyway, I recall Tallerico as a guy with brains above normal, and he was (at the time) obsessed with "the end of the world". Listening to Aerosmith now, after all these years, I think the song "Nobody's Fault" best describes the way I KNEW Steven Tallerico. He was brilliant, and the song, "Nobody's Fault" exemplifies what I believe he interprets as a life-long vision of the future and his fears. Good stuff. Scary stuff. The song sounds to me like bombs going off, just like the end of the world That's it.

Rocks still Rocks | Reviewer: Aeroheadmike | 3/27/11

This is such an under-rated song. Its time for someone to not renew his contract with Fox/American Idol, get back with the four guys with whom he would not have had a career, and make songs like this and "Kings and Queens". They've got at least one more album in them and time to go out on a high.

In their Glory years | Reviewer: D Donvoan | 7/24/09

This is one of the best songs they have ever written on probably one of their best albums. The words are meaningful and deep. You figure Tyler and Perry were probably in their mid 20's when they wrote this song. Great song all the way around!

I Agree | Reviewer: Tony Heise | 3/24/09

I too feel this is one of Aerosmiths best songs. What a Cooker ! This is the Band in their Blazin youth. The First 3 Albums have never been eclipsed by successive albums. Dream on, Get your wings and Aerosmith Rocks ! The driving backup guitar is unforgetable. I love it ! If you did not know, the song is about California Earth Quakes and man's Oblivian towards them.
Rock on Guys................

Hard Rockin' Song! | Reviewer: John | 11/4/08

This song in my oppinion is the best Aerosmith song. The heavy guitar riffs and bass line are only secondary to the genious drums provided by Joey Kramer. This song is still relevent today and I wish Aerosmith would go back into the studio and record more songs like it.
