Song Description

Some of us are happy with our anonymity.

Story Behind the Song

Having a debate with someone over the term "in absentia" (they kept insisting it was "abstentia" (you know who you are) and, of course, the next thing you know, here comes a little ditty.


V1: I live in the town of Absentia
Don't try to find it on a map
Just down the road from obscurity
We call it "the Forgotten Gap"
I moved here when noone was looking
I moved here because
I could live inconspicuously
Actually I already was

Cho: I don't recommend it unless you're dependent
On invisibility
It's not for everyone but it's right for some
Living in absentia - that's me

V2: Nobody seemed to miss me
Or notice I was gone
Proof that my anonymity
Had gone on far too long
I blend into the background
So unremarkably
That even those with whom I'm close
Don't recognize me


V3: I'd invite you to come and visit
But I don't want to intrude
On your free autonomy
'Cause that would just be intrude
So take this to the brain bank
It's just over the hill
I'm not done yet so don't forget
The mostly ghostly Jill
