Hotel

Check-in in the middle of the night

Can't breathe can't see

But the world is oh so bright

Clearly knowing clearly hoping

Not to check-out in the morning

But then the phone rings

And there is a choice

We should

We shouldn't have to make

Ignore it and floor it

Or make the harf choice for the easy way

So we check out

And break out

And see the world

Explore it

Too bad we can't store it

Move on to the next stop

More slow this time

Every fading star another crack

Every ray of shine from the new city

Dazzling and shining like the stars

Break a snowglobe along the way

Lost or just looking

Keep your breath

Don't let it get too bright

Or you'll lose sight of the stars

Guided by the new golden city

With the same storm clouds looming

And new opportunity to

Check-in in the middle of the night

Can't breathe can't see

But the world is oh so bright

Clearly knowing clearly hoping

Not to check out in the morning

But then the phone rings

And there is a choice

We have to make

Ignore it and floor it

Or make the easy choice for the difficult way

But the stars are blinking

And the city grows near

And the storm thunders warnings

Do we dare stop again

If not to hide

Let the storm pass

Wait it our

Do we dare walk to the hotel

Because we no longer need to run

There is nothing chasing

Nothing pulling us into the sun

Nothing but a stroll towards curiosity

Picking up novelties and souvenirs

But the storm spells danger

So we close our eyes and walk

Feeling the harsh air

As the idea barely even hints at a peek to

Check in

In the middle of the night

Can't breathe can't see

There is no end

No sight

But the world is oh so bright

So we fight

For this choice

And that choice

Again

And try to check out only when we know we can't win

But we can still breathe this time

Concerned with worldly worries

Nearly consumed

Except when the flames lick at the tears

And we let it all flow
