When the music's over

When the music's over yeah

When the music's over

Turn out the lights

Turn out the lights

Turn out the lights

yeah

When the music's over

When the music's over

When the music's over

Turn out the lights

Turn out the lights

Turn out the lights

For the music is your special friend

Dance on fire as it intends

Music is your only friend

Until the end

Until the end

Until the end

 

Cancel my subscription to the Resurrection

Send my credentials to the House of Detention

I got some friends inside

 

The face in the mirror won't stop

The girl in the window won't drop

A feast of friends

Alive she cried

Waitin' for me, outside

 

Before I sink

Into the big sleep

I want to hear

I want to hear

The scream of the butterfly

 

Come back baby

Back into my arm

We're gettin' tired of hangin' around

Waitin' around with our heads to the ground

I hear a very gentle sound

Very near yet very far

Very soft yeah very clear

Come today, come today

What have they done to the earth?

What have they done to our fair sister?

Ravaged and plundered and ripped her and bit her

Stuck her with knives in the side of the dawn

And tied her with fences and dragged her down

I hear a very gentle sound

With your ear down to the ground

We want the world and we want it

We want the world and we want it

Now, Now?, Now!

 

Persian night babe

See the light babe

Save us!

Jesus!

Save us!

 

So when the music's over

When the music's over yeah

When the music's over

Turn out the lights

Turn out the lights

Turn out the lights

Well the music is your special friend

Dance on fire as it intends

Music is your only friend

Until the end

Until the end

Until the end

the Doors - Strange Days [1967] - I Can't See Your Face In My Mind

I can't see your face in my mind

I can't see your face in my mind

Carnival dogs

Consume the lines

Can't see your face in my mind

Don't you cry

Baby please don't cry

And don't look at me

With your eyes

I can't seem to find the right lie

I can't seem to find the right lie

Insanity's horse

Adorns the sky

Can't seem to find the right lie

 

Carnival dogs

Consume the lines

Can't see your face in my mind

Don't you cry

Baby please don't cry

I won't need your picture

Until we say goodbye

My eyes have seen you

My eyes have seen you

My eyes have seen you

Stand in your door

When we meet inside

Show me some more

Show me some more

Show me some more

My eyes have seen you

My eyes have seen you

My eyes have seen you

Turn and stare

Fix your hair

Move upstairs

Move upstairs

Move upstairs

 

My eyes have seen you

My eyes have seen you

My eyes have seen you

Free from disguise

Gazing on a city under

Television skies

Television skies

Television skies

 

My eyes have seen you

My eyes have seen you

Eyes have seen you

Let them photograph your soul

Memorize your alleys

On an endless roll

Endless roll

Endless roll

Endless roll

Endless roll

Endless roll

Endless roll

Endless roll

Endless roll

Endless roll

Endless roll

Endless roll

Endless roll

Endless roll

Endless roll

Endless roll

the Doors - Strange Days [1967] - People Are Strange

People are strange

When you're a stranger

Faces look ugly

When you're alone

Women seem wicked

When you're unwanted

Streets are uneven when you're down

When you're strange

Faces come out of the rain

When you're strange

No one remembers your name

When you're strange

When you're strange

When you're strange

People are strange

when you're a stranger

Faces look ugly

When you're alone

Women seem wicked

When you're unwanted

Streets are uneven when you're down

 

When you're strange

Faces come out of the rain

When you're strange

No one remembers your name

When you're strange

When you're strange

When you're strange

 

When you're strange

Faces come out of the rain

When you're strange

No one remembers your name

When you're strange

When you're strange

When you're strange

When you're strange

the Doors - Strange Days [1967] - Moonlight Drive

Posted by MojosBeads on January 10, 2013 at 8:30 PM Comments comments (0)

Let's swim to the moon, uh huh

Let's climb through the tide

Penetrate the evening that the

City sleeps to hide

Let's swim out tonight love

It's our turn to try

Parked beside the ocean

On our moonlight drive

Let's swim to the moon uh huh

Let's climb through the tide

Surrender to the waiting worlds

That lap against our side

Nothin' left open

And no time to decide

We've stepped into a river

On our moonlight drive

 

Let's swim to the moon

Let's climb through the tide

You reach your hand to hold me

But I can't be your guide

Easy I love you

As I watch you glide

Falling through wet forests

On our moonlight drive

Moonlight drive

Come on baby gonna take a little ride

Down down by the ocean side

Gonna get real close

Get real tight

Baby gonna drown tonight

Goin' down down down

When the still sea conspires an armor

And her sullen and aborted currents breed tiny monsters

True sailing is dead

Awkward instant

And the first animal is jettisoned

Legs furiously pumping

Their stiff green gallop

And heads bob up

Poise

Delicate

Pause

Consent

In mute nostril agony

Carefully refined

And sealed over

the Doors - Strange Days [1967] - Unhappy Girl

Unhappy girl

Left all alone

Playing solitaire

Playing warden to your soul

You are locked in a prison

Of your own devise

And you can't believe

What it does to me

To see you

Crying

Unhappy girl

Tear your web away

Saw through all your bars

Melt your cell today

You are caught in a prison

Of your own devise

 

Unhappy girl

Fly fast away

Don't miss your chance

To swim in mystery

You are dying in a prison

Of your own devise

Strange days have found us

Strange days have tracked us down

They're going to destroy

Our casual joys

We shall go on playing

Or find a new town

Yeah!

 

Strange eyes fill strange rooms

Voices will signal their tired end

The hostess is grinning

Her guests sleep from sinning

Hear me talk of sin

And you know this is it

Yeah!

 

Strange days have found us

And through their strange hours

We linger alone

Bodies confused

Memories misused

As we run from the day

To a strange night of stone
