R.E.M. Lyrics

I Took Your Name Lyrics
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 and 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 grey switch
I dragged your big-assed
Dirty robbed 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 Lord
I don't wanna be Iggy Pop
But if that's what it takes - me.

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