Sold-Motel

This song is by John Cale and appears on the album Black Acetate (2005).

Sold in a motel
Engraved in the dark
The hilfiger needle stabbed
Me twice in the back
Ooh - good night
A shadow crawls
Across my face
Blurring my vision
In the usual way
Ooh - good night
Sold motel on the boulevard
Something for nothing
In the inner mind
Ooh - get up
Beach blanket bourgeois
Sunning themselves
Miles of logic and nonsense
Ooh - get up

Send out the messenger
Pick up the word
Wild Tchapoutoulas
Have you heard

Make it a journey
From here to there
Send back the mail
From the ionosphere
Ooh - shut up
Mark down the laws
That we broke tonight
The judge wants you
Back in court to fight
Ooh - shut up

Send out the messenger
Pick up the word
Wild Tchapoutoulas
Have you heard
Send out the messenger
Pick up the word
General Custer
Have you heard

(I hear you calling...
I hear you call...)

Down that way they see
Death every day
In one form or another
Ooh - give up
They're no different
There than here
They're just learn to
Handle the fear
Ooh - give up

Send out the messenger
Pick up the word
Wild Tchapoutoulas
Have you heard
Send out the messenger
Pick up the word
General Custer
