We can all stand alone and declare our innocence but it’s tough to stand amongst the guilty and believe it.

To everyone who wants to blame others for their transgressions and absolve themselves of their responsibilities, here’s words of wisdom from America’s contribution to the root of today’s pop, folk and rock…

They say ev’rything can be replaced
Yet ev’ry distance is not near
So I remember ev’ry face

Of ev’ry man who put me here

I see my light come shining
From the west unto the east
Any day now, any day now
I shall be released

They say ev’ry man needs protection
They say ev’ry man must fall
Yet I swear I see my reflection
Some place so high above this wall

I see my light come shining
From the west unto the east
Any day now, any day now
I shall be released

Standing next to me in this lonely crowd
Is a man who swears he’s not to blame
All day long I hear him shout so loud
Crying out that he was framed

I see my light come shining
From the west unto the east
Any day now, any day now
I shall be released

I Shall Be Released – Bob Dylan
