Place To Start

  • I don't have a leg to stand on
    Spinning like a whirlwind, nothing to land on
    Came so far, never thought it'd be done now
    Stuck in a holding pattern waiting to come down

    Did somebody else define me?
    Can I put the past behind me?
    Do I even have a decision
    Feeling like I'm living in a story already written
    Am I part of a vision made by somebody else?
    Pointing fingers at villains but I'm the villain myself
    Or am I out of conviction with no wind in the sail?
    Too focused on the end and simply ready to fail

    'Cause I'm tired of the fear that I can't control this
    I'm tired of feeling like every next step's hopeless
    I'm tired of being scared what I build might break apart
    I don't want to know the end, all I want is a place to start
    Oh, oh
    I don't want to know the end, all I want is a place to start
    Oh, oh

    Hey Mike, uh, just calling to uh, you know, send my condolences
    Hey man, it's Mark, just calling to check in on you, see how you're doing
    What up Mike? Just calling to see how you're doing, check in with you a little bit
    Wanna obviously send my love and support and, um, just let you know I'm here for you
    I know you're super busy, didn't wanna bother you
    Um, just wanted to let you know I'm thinking about you
    Give me a call back if you want, if not, I guess that too
    Um, but I'm sure I will see you and or talk to you sometime soon
    Alright bud, hope you're hanging in there, see ya Writer/s: Mike Shinoda
