lyrics

You've been on the road for weeks by now
No end to it in sight
The billboards start to catch your eye
Need to try to sleep tonight
the engine starts to whine and knock
You take it as a sign
Nowhere could be as bad
As what you've left behind

The mechanic seems resigned to life
He tells you the bad news
Parts you need are hard to find
You can stay long as you choose
There ain't nothing else for miles ahead
You've seen all there was behind
And although you start to feel unease
You'll probably be just fine

But the wind keeps blowing, like you've never
heard before
And something keeps on keeping you,
from moving out that door

It's like you've always been here
It's always been the same
You feel the slip of something cold
Inside your brain
You cry out to those lonely plains
But no one hears a thing
You're living and you're dying
At the hotel with no name

The old brick buildings tell the tale
Of grander days they knew
It all looks lovely here at first
It's hard to tell what's true
Are you just here by accident
Luck of the draw they say
Or is there something that brought you here
And makes you need to stay

The bottles start to pile inside
Your lonely room for one
Been days since their service came
You're bout to come undone
You make a vow, it's time to change
It's time to leave this place
But when you look in the mirror
You're not sure you see your face


But the wind keeps blowing, like you've never
heard before
And something keeps on keeping you,
from moving out that door

It's like you've always been here
It's always been the same
You feel the slip of something cold
Inside your brain
You cry out to those lonely plains
But no one hears a thing
You're living and you're dying
At the hotel with no name

But the wind keeps blowing, like you've never
heard before
And something keeps on keeping you,
from moving out that door

It's like you've always been here
It's always been the same
You feel the slip of something cold
Inside your brain
You cry out to those lonely plains
But no one hears a thing
You're living and you're dying
At the hotel with no name
You're living and you're dying
At the hotel with no name
You're living and you're dying
At the hotel with no name
