The Meaning of Everything

[lyrics that I'm unsure of are bracketed]

I watched the Oprah Winfrey Show today (for several minutes)
I never thought the world would end this way (while I was in it)
I thought if I don't run and hide I'm sure to go insane
Suddenly I was laughing I guess I was just too late

Too late, too late, too late
Too late, too late, too late

We left the TV next to Richard Harris' cake
Just so that Montel Williams would have 2 less hearts to break
But after some time I began to pine for the high of the cathode ray
The only thing on is Bono, Oh no, [sigh,] accept this fate

Too late, too late, too late
Too late, too late, too late

Wouldn't you like to know the meaning of everything?
Or realize there ain't nothing to know

Wouldn't you like to know the meaning of everything?
Just right now
Wouldn't you like to know?
