Elisa on the Lam
(Based on a True Story)
-------

VERSE

She was a student from Vancouver
Traveling down to LA.
She has something to prove
Gonna do it her way
To her parents she swore
To phone every day
But no calls anymore
Made mom and dad so afraid

She had posted her travels
Online in her blog
After the zoo it unraveled
Suddenly she was gone
The police had been called in
To try and locate her
They found a scary apalling
Video - her in the elevator

CHORUS
The surveillance footage
before Lam's disappearance
No one understood it
Lam acting strange, incoherent

Talking to invisible people
peering out the elevator door
That was at the Hotel Cecil
Then retreat to crouch on the floor

Having the door open and close
Hiding back in the corner
With horror she froze
Were there demons before her?

VERSE 2

The Cecil Hotel no stranger to horror
Night Stalker Richard Ramirez lived there // Serial killer Jack Unterweger
Rented, killed hookers without care.
A woman jumper committed suicide
And murdered one on the sidewalk below.
Is this the place that Elisa died?
Or is she somewhere they don't know?

The Hotel had issues with the water supply.
Water was coming out black
It tasted rotten and putrified
The oddly sweet taste took the tenants aback
The authorities went up to the Cecil's roof
When try saw her things, their hearts sank
The opened the trap door, saw the heart-rending truth
Elisa Lam's rotting body in the water tank.

CHORUS
The surveillance footage
before Lam's disappearance
No one understood it
Lam acting strange, incoherent

Talking to invisible people
peering out the elevator door
That was at the Hotel Cecil
Then retreat to crouch on the floor!
[Exit]
