They say 3 percent of the people use 5 to 6 percent of their brain

97 percent use 3 percent and the rest goes down the drain
       A                                 D                A
I'll never know which one I am but I'll bet you my last dime
 D                    A          E                  A
99 percent think with 3 percent 100 percent of the time

64 percent of all the world's statistics are made up right there on the spot
                                                   B7                     E
82.4 percent of people believe 'em whether they're accurate statistics or not
A                                   D                   A
I don't know what you believe but I do know there's no doubt
       D                                A
I need another double shot of something 90 proof

CHORUS:

      E                 A
I got too much to think about
D           A
Too much to think about
D           A
Too much to figure out
D       E     F#m      D 
Stuck between hope and doubt
     A           E     A
It's too much to think about

VERSE 2:

A                                                                  D               
They say 92 percent of everything you learned in college was just bullshit you'll never

need
                                               B7           E
84 percent of everything you got you bought to satisfy your greed
        A                                          D                A
Because 90 percent of the world's population links possessions to success
            D                            A
Even though 80 percent of the wealthiest 1 percent of the population
E                      A
Drinks to an alarming excess

More money, more stress I guess

CHORUS:

D             A
Too much to think about
D             A
Too much to figure out
D      E      F#m        D 
Stuck between hope and doubt
      A            E     A
It's too much to think about

A                                      D                  A
74 percent of all statisticians truly hate their fucking jobs
                                                       B7
They say the average bank robber lives within about 20 miles of the bank that 
    E
he robs 
               A                                            D                          
There's this little bank not far from here that I've been watching now for a 
  A
while
       D                A                  E                A        
Lately all I can think about is how bad I wanna go out in style

D             A
Too much to think about
D             A
Too much to figure out
D      E      F#m        D 
Stuck between hope and doubt
      A            E    
It's too much to think about
Amen
      A            E     A
It's too much to think about
Mmm hmmm

This song is easier and more accurate if played with a capo on the second fret. Chords are correct but change form ( A is played as open G).

Also, A7 is missing on the third line. It should be over the word "one".
