"What's In The Middle" as written by Inara George and Gregory Allen Kurstin....
Where is the middle, is the middle of your mind
Is it the place where you stop, where you just stop trying
Call out the dogs and let them have a sniff
They might catch a little sent before you just forget it

Loosing your head is such a common theme
All your brains are falling out, falling out the open seams
Where is the heart, is the heart of the matter
I will empty out my skull of all this useless chatter

[Chorus]
I want an empty head, I want to go to bed
For a long long long time
I want to fall behind I want to get in line
For a long long long time

What's in the name if it's a name you can't remember
You thought you had it down, but then you ran back to the center
What's in a word if that word has lost its meaning
If you say it all the time a dirty word will get its cleaning

Where is the end is the edge of understanding
I might think its over rated I cant take the line expanding
Give me a push a little push in one direction
I might need a little help with my own interconnection

[Chorus: x3]

    General CommentWhen I first heard this on Bones, I thought it was a little too quirky, but George's voice and the clever phrasing grew on me. I really wish I'd heard this song while I was still in college or grad school, because it describes the feeling of burn out so well. It would've made good background music for studying.

    My OpinionYes. This is a GREAT song.

    The meaning is obvious, and it's perfect to expression how much you want to relax.

    It's like being sick and tired of being sick and tired.
