1.
I GUESS YOU HAVE TO HAVE A PROBELM
IF YOU WANT TO INVENT A CONTRAPTION.
FIRST YOU CAUSE A TRAIN WRECK
THEN THEY PUT ME IN TRACTION?
WELL, FIRST COMES AN ACTION
AND THEN A REACTION
BUT YOU CAN'T CHANGE 'EM ROUND
FOR YOUR OWN SATISFACTION
WELL YOU BURNED MY HOUSE DOWN
THEN GOT MAD
AT MY REACTION.

2.
WELL IN EVERY COMPLICATED SITUATION
OF HUMAN RELATION
MAKING SENSE OF IT ALL TAKES A WHOLE LOT
OF CONCENTRATION
YOU CAN'T BLAME A BABY
FOR HER PREGNANT MA
AND IF THERE'S ONE OF THESE UNAVOIDABLE LAWS
IT'S THAT YOU JUST CAN'T TAKE THE EFFECT
AND MAKE IT THE CAUSE.

BRIDGE
WELL YOU CAN'T TAKE THE EFFECT
AND MAKE IT THE CAUSE
I DIDN'T ROB A BANK
BECAUSE YOU MADE UP THE LAW
BLAME ME FOR ROBBING PETER
BUT DON'T YOU BLAME PAUL!
YOU CAN'T TAKE THE EFFECT
AND MAKE IT THE CAUSE.

3.
I AIN'T THE REASON
THAT YOU GAVE ME NO REASON
TO RETURN YOUR CALL
YOU BUILT A HOUSE OF CARDS
AND GOT SHOCKED WHEN YOU SAW THEM FALL
I AIN'T SAYING I'M INNOCENT
IN FACT, THE REVERSE
BUT IF YOU'RE HEADED TO THE GRAVE
YOU DON'T BLAME THE HEARSE
YOU'RE LIKE A LITTLE GIRL
YELLIN' AT HER BROTHER
'CAUSE YOU LOST HIS BALL.

4.
WELL YOU KEEP BLAMING ME
FOR WHAT YOU DID
BUT THAT AIN'T ALL
THE WAY YOU CLEAN UP A WRECK
IS ENOUGH TO GIVE ONE PAUSE!
YOU SEEM TO FORGET
JUST HOW THIS ALL STARTED
I'M REACTING TO YOU
BECAUSE YOU LEFT ME
BROKEN HEARTED
WELL YOU JUST CAN'T TAKE
THE EFFECT
AND MAKE IT THE CAUSE.

BRIDGE
WELL YOU CAN'T TAKE THE EFFECT
AND MAKE IT THE CAUSE
I DIDN'T ROB A BANK
BECAUSE YOU MADE UP THE LAW
BLAME ME FOR ROBBING PETER
BUT DON'T YOU BLAME PAUL!
YOU CAN'T TAKE THE EFFECT
AND MAKE IT THE CAUSE.
