A song written after 3 years of silence. It was performed 3 times in 2014.

This is a raw demo recorded live in Frown Town.


“Outside the window there is a radio tower
and its light slowly blinking
and flashing red across the field
I lay in my bed trying to sleep
but find myself staring
and thinking about you
wishing I were in your arms"

I remember these words I read
around 3am
those words you wrote from your room
just a few hundred yards beyond exit 55

How many seasons have passed now?
I know that bed no longer contains
your tiny body
and that you have moved on
from the dereliction that I am
with instructions explicit
never contact you again
Just know the letters from Tina I still hold dear
and I've hidden them away to conceal my tears

I seek the answers, why I cant let you die
broken heart every time still
that I pass exit 55

Remember the days, under that summer sky
we talked and played among urban ruins
I remember and I cry

East side, abandoned orphanage, our contented sighs
we made love and fell to sleep entwined
awoke the next morning in a ray of sunshine

Now every time I pass exit 55
I cannot forget, as my days grow worse now
wondering if the pain ever shall subside
