THE DOORS – The End

This is the end, beautiful friend

This is the end, my only friend, the end

Of our elaborate plans, the end

Of everything that stands, the end

No safety or surprise, the end

I’ll never look into your eyes

Again

 

Can you picture what will be

So limitless and free

Desperately in need

Of some stranger’s hand

In a desperate land

 

Lost in a Roman wilderness of pain

And all the children are insane

All the children are insane

Waiting for the summer rain

 

There’s danger on the edge of town

Ride the king’s highway, baby

Weird scenes inside the gold mine

Ride the highway west, baby

Ride the snake

Ride the snake, to the lake, the ancient lake, baby

The snake is long seven miles

Ride the snake

He is old and his skin is cold

 

The West is the best

The West is the best

Get here and we’ll do the rest

The blue bus is calling us

The blue bus is calling us

Driver, where you taking us

 

The killer awoke before dawn

He put his boots on

He took a face from the ancient gallery

And he walked on down the hall

He went to into the room where his sister lived

And then he paid a visit to his brother

And then he, he walked on down the hall

And he came to a door, and he looked inside

“Father?”-“Yes, son?”-“I want to kill you, 

Mother, I want to…”

 

Come on, baby, take a chance with us

Come on, baby, take a chance with us

Come on, baby, take a chance with us

And meet me at the back of the blue bus

 

Still now

Blue bus

Oh now

Blue bus

Still now

Uuh yeah

 

This is the end, beautiful friend

This is the end, my only friend, the end

It hurts to set you free

 

But you’ll never follow me

The end of laughter and soft lies

The end of night we tried to die

This is the end
