Bright Eyes Beginner's Mind Lyrics

Last updated: 02/06/2011 10:00:00 AM

Hold on tight beginners mind
The wheel is spinning too
Fast to make your move
The worst must be assumed
Oh how they'll try to pull and pry
Away what you know now
Beat and beat it out
Leave a drum that makes no sound
A snuff film on a jumbotron
For all the world to see

A cocktail napkin epitaph
Some psycho babel telegram
Message written in the sand
The tide rolls in
Swear you'll do the opposite
Of all those tangled hypocrites
Who say that the experiment has failed
Don't go there
You're getting nowhere
You're getting nowhere

Stay a while my inner child
I'd like to learn your tricks
Know what makes you tick
Nurse you when you're sick
Oh how you've grown so cynical
Hard lines carved in your face
The sunshine's so cliche
Just like love and pain
You tried your best the rorschach test
But there's just nothing to see

? hope terabytes the perfect pitch?
Some universal elegance
? stack the sound and then the fifth?
Along the bridge

Swear you'll be the opposite
Of all the stilted hypocrites
You know what made you infamous to them
Don't you
You keep starting over
Keep starting over

Hold on tight beginner's mind
The currents far too strong
It'll carry you along
Till you're just like everyone

Stay a while my inner child
I'd like to learn your trick
To know what make you tick
To nurse you when you're sick
