Lyrics

Early Checkout

This ain’t no Hilton, the driver says
A dust cloud rises as he speeds away

I’ll be fine here, despite the heat
Where’s my room? It’s across the street

Not in the main house where things are cozy
Across the street, it ain’t so rosy

They said stay away
They called me a fool
We’ve got three days
Till that moon is full

The path is littered with bugs that are dyin’
No phone reception, don’t bother tryin’

A welcome sign reads: Unicorns at Play
But that, my friend, is during the day

At night you’ll find no such noble beast
You’ll long for the crickets, as all noises cease

They said stay away
They called me a fool
We’ve got two days
Till that moon is full

Are those distant headlights that shine in my room?
Or peering eyes, that will be here soon?

Was that my stomach? Or a howl from afar?
How many steps to get to my car?

I walk towards the door, as it starts to open
A shadow throws a hangman’s rope in

They said stay away
They called me a fool
We’ve got one day
Till that moon is full

They said stay away
They called me a fool
The seconds tick away
Till that moon is full

Too long to wait.
It’s over and done
Another early checkout
From the ceiling fan hung
