There is a time and a place for everybody's taste
But I know too much and I owe too much
There is a time and a place for the type of “message music” Cee Lo is hoping to get the general public to hear, but he can’t wait for that time or that place. His debt to those who have come before him, who have paved the way for to even have a platform from which he could deliver a message, is so great and he owes them so much that to wait for an appointed time and place would be an insult to their efforts and their memory. He must speak even though the audience might not want to hear it.
