"Alabama Motel Room" as written by Matthew Good and Ian Browne....
What is the life, if not a joke
One night she went out for smokes
And they took her apart like a rag doll
In the back of a van
In an Alabama motel room
I have on of them tied op in the bathroom
I am down and out
But he will not get away with it again

When the night comes in
I hope I'm out in the rain
When the night comes in
She makes me whole again

I never sleep, I just watch TV
And the gun, it lies next to me
Whispering
In an Alabama motel room
I reflect on her sweet perfume
I am down and out
But they will not get away with it again

Say you love me
We will never get the chance again

    General Commenti love this song. the riff is great.

    seems to me like it's about rape/murder and a follow up murder of the one[s] who did it to the girl.

    Those two last lines are heart-wrenching, I wish the song ended there.

    General CommentI always tought the lyrics where: "When the night comes in she make IT HOME again"... either way is good though.

    What i don't understand here is that he talk about "they took her apart like a ragdoll" like if he was watching, and then he seem to be the only guy doing it... kinda weird in my mind. I guess his manifesto "Porno Safari" (writen later) is the same fiction story but in different condition.

    General CommentAccording to Matt Good, the song is loosely based on a kidnapping...but it's not easy to infer that from the lyrics. Killer tune though.
