Kip Moore just released his new, powerful single “I’m to Blame” under his label Universal Music Group. Fresh off the heels of the release of the Moore and Westin Davis penned track comes the equally strong lyric video.
As we previously mentioned in our review of Moore’s new single, produced by the amazing Brett James,
The moral of the song, and an important moral, indeed, is that every scar in life can be worn as a badge of honor if you learn from your mistakes. Kip uses this song to teach the value in looking in the mirror, recognizing faults, flaws, and missteps, and taking away a lesson from every experience — good or bad.
The lyric video does a phenomenal job incorporating graphics with the words of the song, while likewise bringing in effective image transitioning to stay on pace with the inspirational track. The chorus, one of admission, states:
No, they don’t make guys like me, you get exactly what you see, I come from a long line of bloodline that ain’t gonna change. So, take your pistol-pointing finger right off of the trigger, I know where to aim, hell, I’m to blame.
Perhaps the most significant part of the lyric video, aside from the entire two minute and sixteen seconds of the song itself, is the section which accompanies the lines provided above. Evolving from a man with a briefcase to one with a beaten skateboard, the video illustrates Moore’s and Davis’s written words — that they are anything but typical and what you see is simply what you get.
