On a dark desert highway cool wind in my hair

My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim I had to stop for the night

There she stood in the doorway I heard the mission bell

There were voices down the corridor I thought I heard them say

Plenty of room at the Hotel California

We are all just prisoners here of our own device

And in the master's chambers they gathered for the feast

They stab it with their steely knives but they just can't kill the beast
