"Moonlight Motel" as written by and Jeffrey Pierce....
I'm a thousand miles below
I'm in a hole waiting for you,

with filthy streets and trucks, outside
I dress, then I undress, and look, outside
I'm in a hole and waiting,
here for you...

Between the lights downtown
In the back of a cab,

you are looking for kicks, to make your kicks
and just like the trick, that goes like this
and just like the prick,
that you are...

I'm a thousand miles below
pulling ribbons from my hair,

low rates and color T.V.
money on the bed, left there for me
and one of these days I'll kill you,
while you sleep...

(solo: Kid Congo)

Between the lights downtown
in the back of a taxi,

you are getting misty-eyed, beneath the adult world sign
just like little children, in one screaming line
I'm in a hole and waiting,
here for you...

I'm a thousand miles below
why do you leave me here?

I was strong enough to admit that I was weak
you take and give alot, but you don't give to me
one of these days I'll kill you,

    General CommentWhat, no comments? This song is so amazing. It seems to be about a prostitute, in some dumpy motel. What's so genius about the lyrics is it's cinematic imagery. And the twist is so good: this person is in a hole, waiting and it's all pretty desolate, but there's still fire in them, they aren't defeated yet: 'one of these days I'll kill you, where you sleep!'
    My favourite line: 'I was strong enough, to admit that I was weak'. It makes me think of addiction, of not being able to quit. Yeah, great song. Rest in peace Jeffrey, you crazy genius man.
