Lyrics
You're the man with no choice
Yes it's been decided you've done wrong
And their's no single voice
That will stand up and say
Oh just what has he done?
For they all read the news
And it's surely proof enough for them
And they flatly refuse to consider oh
Was he really to blame?

Cause when the fingers point... whoah
It's too much to take
Too much to take
Too much to take
Too much to take
And when the fingers point... yeah
It makes your heart break

Now you're moving away
For you can not take it anymore
No amount of explaining can alter the truth
It's all happened before
(Where can you go)
Where can you go
Where the evil eyes won't follow on
And the curtains won't move
Every time you walk by
Boy just what have you done?

Cause when the fingers point... Oh
It's too much to take
Too much to take
Too much to take
Too much to take
And when the fingers point... Oh
It makes your heart break

Too much to take

(Too much to take)
(Too much to take)
(Too much to take)

So you find a new home and a new place to hide
Where's there's peace and shelter from the poison outside
But before too long I'll be staring at the walls
Don't kid yourself son, it's just a matter of time

Cause when the fingers point... Whoa Oh
Fingers point...
Oh when the fingers point
Makes your heart break
Cause when the fingers point... Oh
It's too much to take
Too much to take
Too much to take
Too much to take
And when the fingers point... Oh
It makes your heart break

[Repeat]
(Too much to take)
(Too much to take)
(Too much to take)
