all The Doors lyrics

Universal Mind
I was doing time in the universal mind,
I was feeling fine.
I was turning keys, I was setting people free,
I was doing all right.

Then you came along
With a suitcase and a song,
Turned my head along.
Now I'm so alone
Just looking for a home
In every place I see.
I'm the freedom man, I'm the freedom man.
I'm the freedom man, that's how lucky I am.back to top
Break On Through No. 2
Dead cats, dead rats,
Did you see what they were at, all right.
Dead cat in top hat
Sucking on a young man's blood
Wishing he could come,
Sucking on a soldier's brain
Wising it would be the same.

Dead cat, dead rat,
Did you see what they were at.
Fat cat in top hat,
Thinks he is an aristocrat,
Thinks he can kill and slaughter,
Thinks he can shoot my daughter.

Dead cats, dead rats,
Think you're an aristocrat,
Crap, that's crap...back to top
Love Hides
Love hides in the strangest places,
Love hides in the middle of your faces,
Love comes when you least expect it,
Love hides in the nearer corner,
Love comes for those who's seeking,
Love hides in molecular structures,
Love is the answer.back to top
Build Me A Woman
Give me a witness, darling.
I need a witness, babe.
I got the blue tang bues,
Travel my head down
To the bottom of my cowboy shoes.

Give me a woman, make her ten feet tall.
You got to build me a woman,
make her ten feet tall.
Don't make her ugly, don't make her small.

You got to build me a woman,
make her ten feet tall.
Build me a woman, make her ten feet tall.
Don't make her ugly, don't make her small.
Give me someone I can ball
All night long.back to top
The Selebration Of The Lizard
Lions in the street and roaming
Dogs in heat, rabid, foaming
A beast cagedin the heart of a city
The body of his mother
Rotting in the summer ground.
He fled the town.

He went down and crossed the border
Left the chaos and disorder
Back there over his shoulder.

One morning he awoke in a green hotel
Whith a strange creature groaning beside him.
Sweat oozed from its shiny skin.

Is everybody in?
The ceremony is about to begin.

Wake up!
You can't remember where it was.
Had this dream stopped?

The snake was pale gold
Glazed & shrunken
We were afraid to touch it.
The sheets were hot dead prisons
& she was beside me.
Old she is not... young
Her dark red hair
The white soft skin.
Now, run to the mirror in the bathroom

She is coming in here,
I can't live thru each slow century of her moving.
I let my cheek slide down
The cool smooth tile
Fell the good cold stinging blood
The smooth hissing snakes of rain...

Once I had a little game
I like to crawl back into my brain
I think you know the game I mean
I mean the game called "go insane"

Now you should try this little game
Just close your eyes, forget your name
Forget the world, forget the people
And we'll erect a different steeple.

The little game is fun to do.
Just close your eyes, no way to lose.
And I'm right there, I'm going too.
Release control, we're breaking through.

Way back deep into the brain
Way back past around my pain
Back where there's any rain.
And the rain falls gently on the town
And on the heads of all of us.
And in the labyrinth of streams
Beneath, the quiet unearthy presence of
Nervous hill dwellers in the gentle hills around,
Reptiles abounding
Fossils, caves, cool air heights.

Each house repeats a mold
Window rolled
Beast car locked in against morning.
All now sleeping
Rugs silent, mirrors vacant,
Dust blind under the beds of lawful couples.
Wound in sheet.
And daughters, smug
With semen eyes in their nipples.

There's been a slaughter here.

(Don't stop to speak or look around
Your gloves & fan are on the ground
We're getting out of town
We're going on the run
And you're the one I want to come)

Not to touch the earth
Not to see the sun,
Nothing left to do but
Run, run, run,
Let's run

House upon the hill
Moon is lying still
Shadows of the trees
Witnessing the wild breeze
Come on, baby, run with me
Let's run.
Run with me
Run with me
Run with me
Let's run.

The mansion is warm at the top of the hill,
Rich are the rooms and the comforts there
Red are the arms of luxuriant chairs,
And you don't know a thing till you get inside.

Dead President's corpse in the driver's car
The engine runs on glue and tar
Come on along, we're not goin' very far
To the East to meet the Czar.

Some outlaws live by the side of a lake,
The minister's daughter's in love with the snake,
Who lives in a well by the side of the road
Wake up, girl, we're almost home!

Sun, sun, sun
Burn, burn, burn
Moon, moon, moon,
I will get you
I am the Lizard King
I can do anything.

We came down
The rivers & highways
We came down from
Forests & falls
We came down from
Carson & Springfield
We came down from
Phoenix enthralled
& I can tell you
The names of the Kingdom
I can tell you
The things that you know
Listening for a fistful of silence
Climbing valleys into the shade.

For seven years I dwelt
In the loose palace of exile,
Playing strange games
With the girls of the island.
Now I have come again
To the land of the fair, & the strong, & the wise.
Brothers & sisters of the pale forest
O children of Night
Who among you will run with the hunt?
Now Night arrives with her purple legion.
Retire now to your tents & to your dreams.
Tomorrow we enter the town of my birth.
I want to be ready.
