John Cale
Fear Is A Man's Best Friend - John Cale


Sold Motel

Sold in a motel engraved in
The dark
The hilfiger needle stabbed
Me twice in the back
A shadow crawls across my face
Blurring my vision in the
Usual way
Ooh ooh good nite

Sold motel on the boulevard
Something for nothing in the
Inner mind
Beach blanket bourgeois
Sunning themselves
Miles and miles of logic and
Ooh ooh get up

Send out the messenger
Pick up the word
Wild tchapatuli
Have you heard

Make it a journey from here
To there
Send back the mail from the
Mark down the laws that we
Broke tonite
Judge wants you back in the
Court to fight
Ooh ooh shut up

Down that way they see
Death every day
In one form or another
They're no different
There than here
They're just likely to have
More fear
Ooh ooh give up
