lyrics

At the entrance to the stairway
That takes me to the 1 and 9 train
There is a sign above an arcade
"TOO MUCH IS NOT ENOUGH," it says
It makes me think of arcades
Of pinball decks and video games
It makes me think of Donkey Kong
The big kids playing Donkey Kong
And me too young to make a quarter last
But watching hard and standing fast
It was then I heard a word I'd never heard before:
The word the big kid playing Donkey Kong said
Every time his man went dead
I asked my mother what it meant
She told me, "Never mind
'Cause bright kids don't use words like that."

And suddenly
I'm seeing things with eyes I haven't used in twenty years
I see a man
His mouth, it cups around a sigh atop these stairs
He knows his train is pulling out without him
Everything's gone on without him
How could he end up like this?
Why doesn't he look happy?

And suddenly
My lips are pursed to shape the air, and out it comes
Out it comes:
A word I'm not supposed to say
I go and say it anyway
I march downstairs to miss my train
And I can't lift my head

To take a last look at the arcade
A bigger, brighter arcade
Than the one where all the big kids played
And said the word
They said a word I'd never heard
They said too much
They said enough
They said too much is not enough
They say too much is not enough
They say enough is not enough
Is not enough
Is not enough
But I say
Man, it is.
