i have stayed

at a motel

with no name

many times

always the same

sirens outside

no matter

double

me and the mad hatter

check in

out of sight

during the early

moonlight

known some

that never left

couldn't pay

the bill

thrill

too high

still...

i come and go

don't always know why

ring the bell

hello

the clerk

knows me well

tested fate

sometimes

when it's very late

sold my soul

for a little gold

then prayed to god

many

many times

for a good credit rating

my tab always

paid in full

spin the wheel

spun

no debating

maybe my number

maybe yours

unlucky to be lucky

others smarter

than i

have failed

no passing grade

or make up test

afraid

i will return

no reservations

needed

there's always

a vacancy

for me
