I Took Your Name Lyrics

by REM

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

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

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 dirty Roth car out of that ditch

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

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 wanna be Iggy Pop but if that's what all it takes, hey

If there is some confusion
If there is some confusion
If there is some confusion
Who's to blame?
(Some confusion)
Who's to blame?
(Some confusion)
Who's to blame?
(Some confusion)
(Some confusion)
