Saturday song lyrics

I've never blogged song lyrics before, but these, sent to me by Jeffrey Grimmer, reminded me of Richard Epstein:

The song is called "Effect & Cause" and it's from the White Stripes' new album Icky Thump:

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

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 are you 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
