Too Much to Think
by 311

  • Back again I'm holed up
    In the waiting room again
    Focused on the empty
    Getting underneath my skin
    How do I keep it?
    How do I keep it here?

    Look at how the time flies
    Burning daylight to the ground
    Wash away the ashes
    Gonna quiet my head down
    How do I keep it?
    How do I keep it here?

    'Cause I wanna get high
    But you're keeping me low
    I don't got time to waste or time to kill
    I've had too much to think
    I wanna get high
    But you're taking me down, down, down
    Don't got time to waste or time to kill
    I've had too much to think

    Illuminate the shadow
    And try to keep the light within (keep the light within)
    Avoid another battle
    And forget what might have been
    How do I keep it?
    How do I keep it here?

    'Cause I wanna get high
    But you're keeping me low
    I don't got time to waste or time to kill
    I've had too much to think
    I wanna get high (I wanna get high)
    But you're taking me down, down, down
    Don't got time to waste or time to kill
    I've had too much to think

    Oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh oh oh
    I've had too much to think

    As I walk through the valley of the shadow of LA
    See the faces of the people as they run away
    It's a permanent made distraction, the modern reaction
    The people don't have to feel the dissatisfaction
    It's a slow journey up but a quick ride on down
    And nobody here knowing their way around
    From the top of the world every which way is down
    And who's gonna take the crown?

    'Cause I wanna get high (I wanna get high)
    But you're keeping me low (but you're keeping me low)
    I don't got time to waste or time to kill
    I've had too much to think
    I wanna get high (I wanna get high)
    But you're taking me down, down, down
    Don't got time to waste or time to kill
    I've had too much to think

    Oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh oh oh
    I've had too much to think Writer/s: JOHN WILLIAM FELDMANN, MATT PAULING, NICHOLAS LOFTON HEXUM, ZAKK CERVINI
