Take It Upon Yourself

When there’s no shoulder on which to lean
And it’s clear no one will intervene
To make sure no harm will come to you
And yours, but you know you have to

Everyone gets tossed into the fray
Though they never mean it, some might say
If there’s anything that we can do
Might as well believe in you-know-who

Take it upon yourself
Even though you’ll be wanting
Some assistance
Take it upon yourself
You’re the only one acting
In your interest

Now that all but you have called it quits
Any favor loses sheen when it’s
Weighed against what they want in return
Take it to the bridge and watch it burn

Take it upon yourself
Don’t be taking the back road
Least resistance
You take it upon yourself
You’re not overreacting
There’s a difference
Take it upon yourself
Even though you’ll be wanting
Some assistance
Take it upon yourself
You’re the only one acting
In your interest

Go
Take it upon yourself
Go
Take it upon yourself
Go
Take it upon yourself
Go
Take it upon yourself
