Americana Motel
Running away from this town
‘Cause walkin’s way too slow
Things I need to leave behind
Follow where I go
 
Speedometer trembles... combustion blows
Miles spin around my wheels
Spitting stones off the road
In the darkness… I am
 
Searching the radio dial
Listening for a lonesome song
A late night DJ reaching out
A polestar for we who are gone
 
Embraced by a sapphire sky
Venus bursts through the fading light
Neon cuts like a knife
Slicing the blackened night “Americana Motel”
 
A place to rest... a place to hide
Close the door I shut my eyes
So many dreams shake my faith
So many thoughts ride my mind
 
Dawn comes sooner than sleep
This journey fights to take a hold
I want to stay here in Oblivion
Let the day go on alone  
 
Embraced by a sapphire sky
Venus bursts through the fading light
Neon cuts like a knife
Slicing the blackened night “Americana Motel"
