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 favour 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 path of least resistance,
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!
