lyrics

BEL AIR MOTEL


Never goin' down to the Bel Air motel,
Never gonna go down there
Somebody cryin' somebody dyin'
Down at the dirty Bel Air

Never see the sun shine through the window just
Dark and pourin' rain
Silence all laughter a cold damp draft shares
Thirteen rooms of pain

They check in only when they're feelin' lonely
And thinkin' bout checkin' out
Walls close in, the room it spins and the demons
Scream and shout

If you walk better run, if your drive better turn
Around, tellin' you brother beware
Ain't no way it's safe to stay,
It's hell down at the Bel Air

Evil corner in the neighborhood
Where the devil makes his bed
Dogs run free in the middle of the street
And the stop light's stuck on red.

Never goin' down to the Bel Air motel,
Never gonna go down there
Somebody cryin' somebody dyin'
Down at the dirty Bel Air
