Lyrics/Notes

Too Much Information
--(apologies to Todd. I am 100 percent sure this is not 100 percent correct)

So much for the hero in the undertow,
Lost his legs, then he toppled down.
Now I see the buzzards and the carrion crow;
Smell the blood and follow him around.

So much for the legend and his dignity,
Pulled (stripped) off like a skin and thrown (pulled) away.
Now I joint the people and the bloody lust,
Staring at the horrible display.

Too much information;
Now my heart is breaking;
I don’t want to see (watch) you go.
Too much information
Now my heart is shaken,
I don’t want to watch you crawl.

So much for the leader and his gravitas,
Shed off (Running) in a river down the drain.
Now I join the people in the populace,
Laughing at the pitiful remains.

Too much Information
Guess I was mistaken,
Didn’t need to know your hand.
Too much Information
Confidence is shaken
Didn’t need to know your hand.

If you need someone to talk to;
I’ll be there for you.
If you need someone to fall apart on;
I’ll be there too.
If you need to pull yourself together;
I’ll look away.
If you need someone to drop a bomb on;
I’m there today.

Now I see the pressure start to overflow,
Running in a river down your cheek.
Now they show the figures and their adding up,
Man, it’s been one hell of a week!

Too much information
Oh (No) my heart is shaken
I don’t want to see you fall.
Too much information
Now my heart is breaking
I don’t want to watch you fall.
Too much information
Mmm, my heart is aching
Everyone’s bound to fall (crawl).

Too much information
Too much information
Everybody’s bound to fall.
Too much information
I don’t want to watch you fall.
Too much information’
Yeah, my heart is shaking
I don’t want to watch you fall.

From listening to about half of the available live recordings; it is fair to say the choruses are somewhat flexible—which just adds to the beauty of this song.
