"Gotta Start Somewhere" as written by and Jon Brion....
I might not have anything to offer you
I might not have anything to say that's new
But you've gotta start somewhere
Oh, you've gotta start somewhere

So infinite and scary too
Just ask for it
And it's coming true
I continue in hope I have a follow-up
And if I do then you might not ever shut me up

But you've gotta start somewhere
Oh, you've got to start somewhere

So I prepare to follow through
Why should I care
What it is to you?

Get a load of the lengths I got to avoid
Even admitting that I'm qualified
And I'm aware of the need to let it ride

But you've gotta start somewhere
Oh, you've gotta start somewhere
Yeah, you've gotta start somewhere

If, and, or but will have to do
This story's what I'm sticking to
For it might not address the need for more
And it might be less than I'm hoping for
It's just what It's coming to
Just ask for it and it's coming true

But you've gotta start somewhere
Oh, you've gotta start somewhere
Yeah, you've gotta start somewhere
Just ask for it and it's coming true

    My OpinionMeaningless is seemingly an album designed as a showcase of Jon's production talents - and this first track's lyrics somewhat confirm it for me. It was done in 2001 which, given a glance at Jon's production discography, seems to be at the end of a reasonably dry period. Meaningless was therefore an extremely slick "demo" (since it was of his awesome production skills) and, well, he had to start it somewhere.. :)
