Throw It All Away  Toad the Wet Sprocket

Transcribed by: Walter Tien (
Revised by: Mike Friedman (
[G]take your cautionary tales
and take your [Em]incremental gain
and all the [C]sycophantic games
[D]and throw 'em all away
[G]burn your tv in your yard
and gather '[Em]round it with your friends
and warm your [C]hands upon the fire
[D]and start again[G]
take the [C]story you've been sold
the lies that [G]justify the [Em]pain
the guilt that [C]weighs upon your soul
[D]and throw 'em all away
Fill (repeat through verse)

[G]tear up the calendar you bought
and throw the [Em]pieces to the sky
confetti [C]falling down like rain
like a [D]parade to usher in your [G]life
[C]take the dreams that should've died
the ones that [G]kept you lying [Em]awake
when you s[C]hould've been all right[D]
and throw 'em all away[G]
[F]with the [C]time i [G]waste on the [F]life i [C]never [G]had
[F]i could've [C]turned [G]myself into a better [D]man

[C]there is nothing you can buy
and there is [G]nothing you can [Em]save
to fill the hol[Am]e inside your heart[C]
[D]so throw it all [Em]away[G]
to fill the [C]hole inside your heart[D]
[G]help me to empty this house
the wool [Em]i've gathered all these days
and thought i couldn'[Am]t do without[C]
and [D]throw it all away[G]
