Effect And Cause Lyrics

Effect And Cause

I guess you have to have a problem if you want to vent a contraption
But you cause a train wreck, then you put me in traction
Well first came an action, then a reaction
But you can switch around for your own satisfaction
Well you burnt my house down then got mad at my reaction
Well in every complicated situation of the Human Relation
Makin sense of it all takes a whole lot of concentration
Well you can't blame a baby for her pregnant ma
And if theres one of these unavoidable laws
It's that you just can't take the effect and make it the cause (no!)

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 robbin' Peter, but don't you blame Paul
Can't take the effect and make it the cause

I aint the reason that you gave me no reason to return your calls
You built a house of cards and got shocked when you saw them fall
Well I aint sayin' 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 yelling at her bother cause you lost his ball

Well you keep blaming me for what you did, and that aint all
The way you clean up a wreck is enough to give one pause
Well you seem to forget just how this all started
I'm reactin to you because you left me broken hearted
See you just can't take the effect and make it the cause

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 robbin' Peter, but don't you blame Paul
Can't take the effect and make it the cause
