The Residence of Ben

Written By: Ben Hutchinson

You’ve reached the residence of one named Ben
I thank you for calling, but I’m presently not in
And it’s such a shame
I would have loved to chat with you
We could have passed the day right through

But today I’ve gone away
To a better place, my feet just itched to stray
I had to flee my cagey blue-walled room
For the radiator was leaking gloom And it’s far too cold, but I’ll call you soon

Won’t you leave a message at the tone?
Please tell me your story, just speak it through the phone
I’d really like to know
Give your name and number, too
I’ll return your call, will do

But today I’ve gone away
To a better place, my feet just itched to stray
I had to flee my cagey blue-walled room
For the radiator was leaking gloom
And it’s far too cold, but I’ll call you soon

Laying on my bed I pondered loudly
While the neon drone of the city oppressed my ear
Looking out on the concrete vegetation
Oh, why did I move down here?

You’ve reached the residence of one named Ben
Why haven’t you called me, I’ve been checking quite often
But no one has rung
I really need to chat with you
I’m so bored, if you only knew
Don’t forget me I’ll be coming back home soon
I had to get away, get away
From this town and the humming streets
I could no longer sleep
My midget cell made me want to yell
So I fled, went away, to where the voices don’t dwell
I gotta be where I am not lonely
So if you’d be so kind as to come get me
I’ll be waiting at the station at noon
