Jim Morrison - An American Prayer [1969] - The Ghost Song (extended version)

Posted by MojosBeads on January 13, 2013 at 7:10 AM

Awake

Shake dreams from your hair

My pretty child, my sweet one

Choose the day and choose the sign of your day

The day's divinity

First thing you see

 

A vast radiant beach and cooled jeweled moon

Couples naked race down by it's quiet side

And we laugh like soft, mad children

Smug in the wooly cotton brains of infancy

The music and voices are all around us

 

Choose they croon the ancient ones

The time has come again

Choose now, they croon

Beneath the moon

Beside an ancient lake

 

Enter again the sweet forest

Enter the hot dream

Come with us

Everything is broken up and dances

 

Indians scattered on dawn's highway bleeding

Ghosts crowd the young child's fragile eggshell mind

 

We have assembled inside this ancient and insane theater

To propagate our lust for our life

And flee the swarming wisdom of the streets

 

The barns have stormed

The windows kept

And only one of all the rest

To dance and save us

From the divine mockery of words

Music inflames temperament

 

Ooh great creator of being

Grant us one more hour

To perform our art

And perfect our lives

 

We need great golden copulations

 

When the true king's murders

Are allowed to roam free

A thousand magicians arise in the land

Where are the feasts we were promised

 

One more thing

 

Thank you oh lord

For the white blind light

Thank you oh lord

For the white blind light

A city rises from the sea

I had a splitting headache

From which the future's made
