the Doors - The Soft Parade [1969] - The Soft Parade

Posted by MojosBeads on January 11, 2013 at 8:20 PM

When I was back there in seminary school

There was a person there

Who put forth the proposition

That you can petition the Lord with prayer

Petition the lord with prayer

Petition the lord with prayer

You cannot petition the lord with prayer!


Can you give me sanctuary

I must find a place to hide

A place for me to hide


Can you find me soft asylum

I can't make it anymore

The Man is at the door


Peppermint miniskirts chocolate candy

Champion sax and a girl named Sandy

There's only four ways to get unraveled

One is to sleep and the other is travel, da da

One is a bandit up in the hills

One is to love your neighbor 'till

His wife gets home


Catacombs, nursery bones, winter women, growing stones

Carrying babies to the river

Streets and shoes, Avenues

Leather riders selling news

The monk bought lunch

Ha ha, he bought a little, Yes, he did, Woo!

This is the best part of the trip, this is the trip, the best part

I really like, what'd he say?


Yeah, right!

Pretty good huh


Yeah I'm proud to be a part of this number


Successful hills are here to stay

Everything must be this way

Gentle streets where people play

Welcome to the Soft Parade

All our lives we sweat and save

Building for a shallow grave

Must be something else we say

Somehow to defend this place

Everything must be this way

Everything must be this way yeah


The Soft Parade has now begun

Listen to the engines hum

People out to have some fun

A cobra on my left

Leopard on my right yeah

The deer woman in a silk dress

Girls with beads around their necks

Kiss the hunter of the green vest

Who has wrestled before

With lions in the night

Out of sight

The lights are getting brighter

The radio is moaning

Calling to the dogs

There are still a few animals

Left out in the yard

But it's getting harder

To describe


To the underfed


Tropic corridor

Tropic treasure

What got us this far to this mild equator

We need someone or something new

Something else to get us through yeah (c'mon)

Callin' on the dogs

Callin' on the dogs

Oh it's getting harder

Callin' on the dogs

Callin' in the dogs

Callin' all the dogs

Callin' on the gods

You gotta meet me too late baby

Slay a few animals at the crossroads, too late

All in the yard, but it's gettin' harder, by the crossroads

You gotta meet me, oh, we're goin', we're goin great

At the edge of town, tropic corridor, tropic treasure

Havin' a good time, Got to come along, what got us this far

To this mild equator, Outskirts of the city, you and I

We need someone new, Somethin' new, Somethin' else to get us through

Better bring your gun, better bring your gun

Tropic corridor, tropic treasure, we're gonna ride and have some fun


When all else fails

We can whip the horse's eyes

And make them sleep

And cry
