"Middle of Nowhere" as written by and Simon/howell Byrne....
Don't get mad if I'm laughing
Blame the caffeine for all the 5 am phone calls
I haven't slept a single night in over a month
And not even once did you start to make sense to me
Well maybe I'm a little bit slow, or just consistently inconsistent
She said, "Unpredictability's my responsibility, baby."

But you're waiting at the door where everybody's hanging out just like they hung out before
You didn't have to do it but you did it to say
That you didn't have to do it but you would anyway

To give you something to go on when I go off back to the middle of nowhere
To give you something to go on when I go off back to the middle of nowhere

They chewed me up and then they spit me out
And I'm not supposed to let it bother me
But maybe I'm a little bit weak - I let my frailty take the wheel
She said, "Maybe there's a bit of me waiting for a bit of you. baby."

But you're waiting at the door where everybody's hanging out just like they hung out before
You didn't have to do it but you did it to say
That you didn't have to do it but you would anyway

To give you something to go on when I go off back to the middle of nowhere
To give you something to go on when I go off back to the middle of nowhere

But you're waiting at the door where everybody's hanging out just like they hung out before
You didn't have to do it but you did it to say
That you didn't have to do it but you would anyway

To give you something to go on when I go off back to the middle of nowhere
To give you something to go on when I go off back to the middle of nowhere
To give you something to go on - to go on back to the middle of nowhere

    General CommentThe most solid, all-around song on this album of catchy songs. Elevator is, in my mind, a success for HHH, improving on their basic sound and making it more steady and consistent.

    Make Up The Breakdown at times lost itself, going off the deep end on tangents and vocal rampages. This album doesn't have any real moments like this- I like every song, even if I don't love every song, and the lead singer doesn't seem like he's trying too hard anymore.

    This song, in particular, is pretty tempered and calm, but with great, expressive lyrics and catchy verses and choruses.
