"Motionless and White" is a song by Eighteen Visions, and was the final single from The Best of Eighteen Visions. "Motionless and White" became a popular underground hit in parts of the UK and Western Australia, but undoubtedly the most successful in California, it ended up peaking #98 on the US Mainstream Rock Charting System. The song addresses the theme of drug use and reads as someone attempting to persuade a heavy user to break the addiction, and it possibly inspired the highly successful Three Days Grace single "Never Too Late". "Motionless and White" was often the closing song of Eighteen Visions' sets, up until the release of their album Obsession.

The title of the song inspired the name for the band, Motionless in White.
