Oh my hearties bold as brass Roll it out like summer grass Take me back where I come from Transformation has begun Throwing off the clothes of day Complications fall away All I am is laid to waste Transformation takes my place And just you keep it coming A feeling I ain't never felt before And the way my heart is drumming Well caution just goes flying right out the door And ain't this really something We're walking but our feet don't touch the floor Anymore Standing quiet as a mouse Rhododendrons for my house Water lapping at my feet Transformation is complete

The lyrics to "Heartbreak Hotel" were written by a steel guitar player who was once a dishwasher repairman. He was inspired by a newspaper story about a man who killed himself and left behind a note saying only, "I walk a lonely street."
