I almost have a half memory of being out the back of Byron Bay but the names and faces, stories and places all fold into one.Initially the song was based on a friend's story but as it ended up, there is a lot of me in there. I'll let that be. Scott Tinkler on Trumpet was yet again inspired. I think he was passing through Sydney from Byron Bay at the time. "A Rock n' Roller coaster that you can't get off."'



Broken down out back of the bay, camped out in the van.
Waiting for the rain to stop, got stuck for a week.
Scraping up the change at a petrol stop. Sold an old guitar.
Rock n’ Roller coaster that I can’t get off.
How’d I come down this far?

Turn out the light tonight .
You keep movin’ on movin’ on movin’ on.
Watch that satellite cross the night.
Like you movin’ on movin’ on movin’ on.

Called you up and reversed the charge. Hit you for a loan.
Can’t get passed the answer machine then your mum comes on the phone
Says you’ve done the run and you’ve got our boy. Don’t call here again.
The telephone box comes zooming in. Fall into the rain.

Chorus repeat

Made it back and the band broke up.
But I’ve got to play on……
Dragged around your parent’s house, tried to patch it up.
Your father hit the roof when he saw my face. Slammed into the truck

Chorus repeat.
