"Too Much Food" as written by and Lee Rosenberg Bernie Weinman....
You can say that I'm one curly fry in the box of the regular
Messing with the flavor oh the flavor that you savor
Saving me for last but you better not eat me at all
Living in a fast food bag making friends with the ketchup and salt
People say that I'm crazy for not moving on to better things
Instead I'm sitting around trash talking with the onion rings
But it's much too soon to leave this easy life
Pass me the spoon. Pass the analytical knife

Cause your about to get cut and get cut down
It's all about the wordplay all about the sound in the tone of my voice
You gotta let me make my choice alone before my food gets cold
Better shut up or get shot down. It's all about the know how all just a matter of taste
Stop telling me the way I gotta play. Too much food on my plate.

Believe it or not I super sized my sights on the surprise in the cereal box
My stomachs smaller than my eyes
so I went to see the doctor and he said "turn your head and then cough"
I didn't listen to what he said instead I couldn't wait to get off
He said I can have this but I can't have that
That I should keep wishing I was living the life of a cat because
I ain't the one whose gonna be missing the feast
Just like you ain't the one who seems to be calming the beast

Now your about to get cut and get cut down
It's all about the wordplay all about the sound in the tone of my voice
You gotta let me make my choice alone before my food gets cold
Better shut up or get shot down. It s all about the know how all just a matter of taste
Stop telling me the way I gotta play. Too much food on my plate.

Well if you are what you eat in my case I'll be sweet so come and get some
I'm so over it.

Now your about to get cut and get cut down
It s all about the know how all just a matter of taste
Stop telling me the way I gotta play. Too much food on my plate.
(Get up and get some)
There's too much food on my plate

    General CommentThis song is so much fun to play really loud :)

    I believe this is about Jason's frustration with the way the record company tried to tell him how to make his music, especially on "Remedy"

    General Commentit's about pressure definetly, how he wants to do some stuff with his life but they don't let him and how people put more problems in his life. It's so cool, I started laughing with the lyrics, they are so funny, you don't really hear songs like this everyday, it's really a good song.

    General Commentyea he said in an interview that its a song towards the record company telling them to back off and to let him do his own thing, in mraz's terms radio music is fast food music meaning music thats right there whenever you want it. hence "too moch food"

    General CommentI agree it's probably about his record company trying to change him or his sound, and this is him saying that he is an original and intends to stay that way.
