Been called "the best song I've ever written," I can't seem to get it down. It has been an impossible effort to get a recording of this song that I think does it justice, but here, six or seven years after I wrote it, I think the demo I did a couple of years ago is perhaps the best version I'm ever going to get on tape. The song is about being trapped in a small town, and what is lost/gained when one "escapes." Originally written in 2007-08.
