Lyrics for I Took Your Name by R.E.M.:

Verse 1
I wore the clothes you wanted
I took your name
If there is some confusion, who's to blame?
I signed your living will
I smiled your face
I'm ready to close the book on NASA in outer space

Chorus
If there is some confusion
Who's to blame?
Who's to blame?

Verse 2
I sequenced your arrival
I sealed your fate
I pushed the button and erased your master tape
I wrote the sales pitch
I threw the brake switch
I dragged your big-ass daddy Roth car out of that ditch

Chorus
If there is some confusion
Who's to blame?
Who's to blame?

Verse 3
I crossed your great divide
I stirred your ocean's tide
I called your bluff until I blew your circuits wide
I'll be your albatross
Devil, dog, Jesus, God
I don't want to be Iggy Pop, but if that's what it takes, hey

Chorus
If there is some confusion
Who's to blame?
Who's to blame?
