The White Stripes - Effect and Cause lyrics

Download Effect and Cause 320kbps mp3

I guess you have to have a problem
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 burnt my house down,
Then, got mad at my reaction.

Well, in every complicated situation
You're the human relation
Makin' sense of it all
Take a whole lot a concentration

Well, you can blame my baby
For her pregnant ma
And if there's one of these
On the order for laws
It's that 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 a law
When you people robbin' Peter
Don't you blame Paul
Can't take the effect
And make it the cause

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
Well I ain't sayin' I'm innocent?
In fact the reverse
But if you're headin' to the grave
You don't blame the hearse
You're like a little girl yellin' at her brother
'Cause you lost his ball

Well you keep blamin' me for what you did
And that ain't all
The way you clean up a wreck
Is enough to get one pause
You seem to forget
Just how this song 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

You can't take the effect
And make it the cause
I didn't rob a bank
Because you made up a law
Blame people robbin' Peter
Don't you blame Paul
Can't take the effect
And make it the cause
