lyrics

Begin in the Middle
Two-Thousand Eleven
Long after you first saw your daddy communing with the dead
He's a tongue-spitting fire, he's an old faded wreckage
He never thought to pass on the message

What do I have to hold onto?
What do I have to hold onto?
What do I have to hold onto?
What do I have to hold on -

Let's begin in the middle of the progression
These houses rise, they fall -
"Crumbled, extended, removed, forgotten"

There's the open field where nothing's ever happened
And the redwood grove where they spread his ashes

You never thought to ask him
Now you look for an answer
Begin in the middle
You look in vain
For a rumination
Haunted by the pain


What do I have to hold onto?
What do I have to hold onto?
What do I have to hold onto?
What do I have to hold onto?
What do I have to hold onto?
