The Lyrics

Found this place on the highway, so I went inside.
Walked into the lobby, I think I nearly died.
Heard a knock at the doorway, I thought "Now, who could that be?"
I got up then and I opened the door, the figure stared back at me.
There she stood in the doorway. I asked her to come in.
And I was so pleased with myself until she came and kicked me in the shin.
Then she stormed out of the room, and she ran far away.
I heard voices, then, inside my head. I thought I heard them say:

Welcome to a hotel in California.
It's a lovely place, if you find the space.
No vacancies at a hotel in California.
Any day or week, it's the place you seek.

I ran quickly through the hallway. I raced to the hallway's ends.
But I was stopped by these two strong young lads that she calls friends.
I escaped to the courtyard. They were not done.
I tried to escape them, but just couldn't run.
Then they called the police force, who arrived in time
To see me run from them just like I did in nineteen ninety nine.
And still that girl is running so far away.
She'll run late into the dark of the night, 'til the break of day.

Welcome to a hotel in California.
It's a lovely place, if you find the space.
They rippin' you off at a hotel in California.
But it's just as well; it's a cheap hotel.

Running into darkness, I caught up with my prey.
And she said: "Why the heck did you stalk me here?" I just couldn't say.
The police finally caught me, and threw me into their car.
The world around me turned to black, before we had gone too far.
Next thing I remember, I was trapped inside a jail.
I knew I'd never leave this place, my escape plans wouldn't sail.
"Relax" said the jailor, "you are in here 'til your death.
You'll be here from now until the day you breathe your final breath."
