"Thanks For The Information" as written by and V. Morrison....
Thanks for the information
Never give a sucker an even break
When he's breaking through
To a new level of consciousness
There always seems to be more
Obstacles in the way
Thanks for the information I know
It's only a combat zone
Thanks for the memory,
I'll just have
To carry on on my own

[Chorus]
And it's wonderful and it's marvelous
How we can ever make it through
Sometimes I wonder how we can ever
Make it from day to day

Thanks for the information
What you gain on the hobby horse you lose on the swing
I like mine over easy
And you can have your's sunny side up
I don't want to quibble over insignificant details
And I've tried every trick in the book
Thanks for the information
I know I should look before I leap

[Chorus]

Thanks for the information
Never give a sucker an even break
And with her everything light becomes heavy
And everything heavy becomes light
They took me down to the watering hole
Because I happened to mention I was dying of thirst
Then they told me he who believes first will be later
And he who believes later will be first

[Chorus]

Thanks for the information
Oh never give a sucker an even break
When you're on to something it's a
Dime in a dozen people start
Coming out of the woodwork
Thanks for the invitation
I know I must be on to something big
Every time I take two steps forward
I end up having to take three back

[Chorus]

Thanks for the information
A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush
Every time I'm ready for a major breakthrough
I always have to think in terms of better of worse
Thanks for the information
Thanks for the memory

    General CommentSeems to be aimed at his critics, as well as executives/suits in the music industry. Van is expressing his disappointment and frustration with having to deal with these types of people. The economic side of the industry makes him have to deal with these people and think of all these other sides of the coin, rather than just make music and be happy.
