"Too Many Thoughts in My Head" is the seventh track from The Black Album.

Background

The song's bridge shares its melody with the song "君はサイクロン" ("Cyclone") from the Scott & Rivers album "ニマイメ" ("Naimaime"). According to an interview with Cuomo, The chorus is also taken from a 1997 song:

Oh, here’s two old bits you might interested in: “Too Many Thoughts In My Head,” that chorus is from 1997. I wrote that at Cole Rehearsals. It’s amazing it survived this long and now it’s getting used, maybe. “I’m Just Being Honest” is from one of my Japanese albums. The verse and chorus from that.

Lyrics

Stay up reading Mary Poppins
Overwhelmed by Netflix options
Boy found brains he never knew he had
Meet me there in Runyon Canyon
Fuel up, bitch, there's no more slackin'
Moses looks upon the promised land

I'm so high on cookies it's insane

Too many thoughts in my head now
I can't get out of my brain
They got me running in circles
Feel like I'm going insane
I had a funky night and my brain needs a break
I had a funky night and my brain needs a break
'Cause there's too many thoughts in my head, now
I can't get out of my brain

Tried to get my thoughts on paper
Comb my hair like I'm a gangster
Gotta do the dog and pony show
Algorithms sure ain't helping
Prefrontal cortex is melting
I'm going where the weather suits my clothes

I'm so high on Chopra it's insane

Too many thoughts in my head now
I can't get out of my brain
They got me running in circles
Feel like I'm going insane
I had a funky night and my brain needs a break
I had a funky night and my brain needs a break
'Cause there's too many thoughts in my head, now
I can't get out of my brain

I never wanted to be lonely
I never thought that life would turn out like this
I never thought that I'd feel empty
I'm really tired of this Lawrence Welk shit

Too many thoughts in my head now
I can't get out of my brain
They got me running in circles
Feel like I'm going insane

Nothing can titillate me
Dried up like a dead battery
Throw me upon the heap
Gonna be reused but it won't be me
Can't seem to get connected
What was the name of the network?
Dumb thoughts with a dumb program
I need a life with a little more RAM
