SAVE US! JESUS!


JIM MORRISON

Yeah, it ain't pretty. He looks pretty fucked-up. Having been in a lineup or two and having mugshots made, I can tell you that being photogenic and looking pretty for the camera is not the most important thing on your mind at the time.

What I am concerned with is the UNFAIR descriptions that have survived to this day of Jim Morrison being such a DARK charater of the hippie days. So maybe he was drunk out of his mind or stoned on anything handy but look at how he lived and what he SAID and where and when he SAID it - right in front of Barry Goldwater, LBJ, Nixon and Yo Mamma. He was ready to die for The Truth and that takes some guts. It also takes a lot of whiskey and smoke. As a famous guru once said; "Life is a long journey full of struggles and pain - get all the pussy you can".

I used to HEAR things wrongly while listening to music back in the old days.. especially songs that seemed to be covered in White Noise. Now I hear more clearly and while reading lyrics that have been heard and typed by others, I realize that they hear it differently too...

I believe Jim Morrison was a Christian. Not a Bible-thumping, finger-pointing antiquated jerk but a REAL Christian that called in Faith, for help - in some of his music. The lyrics below that are highlighted and notated, point out WHAT I PERSONALLY HEAR at the lines indicated. I call it to your attention because we need to get it right for history's sake.

There is THE WORD of God
and there is
The MEANING of the Word Of God.

When The Music's Over Lyrics
Artist(Band):The Doors

Yeah, c'mon
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 <<[WOULD YOU LIKE, BABE]
See the light, babe <<[TO 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!

Yes, and as my attorney once said,

There is THE LETTER of the Law
and the SPIRIT of the Law...
