"Exit Does Not Exist" as written by Isaac Brock, Eric Judy and Jeremiah Green....
Does not exist, take an exit

I hear voices insinuating
Feeds me words to this song that I am saying

Sunlight, 7:20 PM early September
Standing looking at a photograph you don't remember

You look out of breath, and me like I am faking
As I matter of fact I don't recall this being taken

You don't actually exist so I start shaking

Does not exist, take an exit

    General Commentthis song is anything but upbeat, but a fine and very, very sad song

    it's about someone looking at a photo with it's date printed on it
    but can't remember the actual taking of the photo
    (or they are looking at a photo one night at 7:20 pm)

    supposing it's a girl who wrote the song
    she sees the man with her in the photo looks out of breath
    while she looks like she's faking some feeling

    the does not exist, take an exit line, sounds eerie, the way it's sung

    like she shouldn't be looking back at old pictures
    of things that don't exist anymore

    love the song

    General CommentLike someone else said, it's about looking at a photo of yourself and a loved one who's passed away - someone who no longer exists, strictly speaking.

    I don't know the original, only the SKM cover. It begins the Tiny Cities cd, which uses MM covers to express the experience of losing someone and trying to deal with it.
