My eyes have seen you
My eyes have seen you
Stand in your door
Meet inside
Show me some more

My eyes have seen you
My eyes have seen you
My eyes have seen you
Turn and stare
Fix your hair
Move upstairs
Move upstairs
Move upstairs

My eyes have seen you
My eyes have seen you
My eyes have seen you
Free from disguise
Gazing on a city
Under television skies
Television skies
Television skies

My eyes have seen you
My eyes have seen you
Eyes have seen you
Let them photograph your soul
Memorize your alleys
On an endless roll
Endless roll

I know that many are big fans of The Doors, but I am not one of them.

Every time I hear one of their songs, I cannot help but think about how Jim Morrison let the people in his life down, and how inspired their music was, but it's a reminder of how self destructive behavior and disrespecting others can lead down a very dark and deadly road.  I cannot celebrate self destructiveness and extreme selfishness, and it ruins the music for me.

It reminds me of all of the great music and people lost during that time to drugs and alcohol and self destructive living.  I feel sorry for the surviving members of The Doors who were let down by Morrison.

 
I don't think it's unusual as we get older to look back and wonder how in the hell most of us managed to survive.

The little guy on the album cover died just last year.  I forget his name, but he played ALF on that stupid TV show, which name I also forgot.

This is the most tired comment on these boards.  That is what the button is for.  Just push it.  There's really no need to tell us about it.

For me, the Doors sound better and better as the years go on, pretty much any Doors.  Very grateful.
now that's deep
 
love this song and this album, thanks bill

The Lizard King at his best/worst.

Coming from someone who probably listens to Eminem.
Interesting.  Not great but interesting.

No-one had a corner on the Doors, as a member of the class of "67"
I watched the flower of Rock and Roll bloom and grow and bloom again
and again. The Doors are one of the many very talented corner-stones of
R & R . Be it Muddy, Buddy, Roy, or Jim they all had a hand in the formation
of a celebration of life and times through their very visceral music. Sad that many of the most
creative simply couldn't live with the demons in their head or the amount of dope
it took to quill their madness. Some people just never pulled the rip-cord.



 
+1 that. well put.
Wow, I haven't heard this in a doors age...
Ace song, always prefered the, 'Live at the Matrix' version though.

I was just sitting here grooving on a song I haven't heard in ages when I lost all connection to RP. Hmmm.

Well, I'll listen to the BBC for a while and then check back in a moment.

Since you KIDS were never in the time or place where the Doors were you will never know what they really said, just what you think they said. It is amazing what a WAR and time will do for a song and a group. They had alot to say, but it was for us I guess, not the rest of you. To bad, you missed out. I would love to have takin you out on a patrol and then see what you would say about the Doors and what some of the songs had to say. I was there, 1971, Quang Tri, Vietnam. Never mind what I really want to say, since you were not in the CLUB you wouldn't understand.Edited By hippie at 9:35 am on 5/28/2002


Especially when you think about all that time Morrison spent in 'nam. Every time he was home he thought he was gonna wake up back in the jungle. When he was home after his first tour, it was worse. He'd wake up and there'd be nothing. He hardly said a word to his wife, until he said "yes" to a divorce. When he was here, he wanted to be there; when he was there, all he could think of was getting back into the jungle ....

Apologies to Apocalypse Now.

For the record the Doors kick ass, but you don't have to get drafted to enjoy them.

Not my favorite track off this album, but still exciting to hear.


A classic track...one of my favorites from the Doors.
Hmmmm...over six years since this was last played.  Might have been a good idea to make it 7.

Uggh..HUM!!!!! (Clears throat).....You suck!

Hey Hippie, Instead of being so condescending to all us *KIDS*, how ‘bout educating us instead? What is it about the Doors music that is so important to you? What are they *really* saying? My dislike of the Doors has nothing to do with what I *think* they said. I just don't care for most of their music – independent of the lyrics. Maybe if I listened to the lyrics more closely, put in context of the time they were written, I would appreciate them more? Of course, I'll never be a member of the CLUB, but I'm willing to be enlightened...

Ok, I know I'll get some flame for this, but IMHO if Jim Morrison hadn't died, he wouldn't have been the over romanticized, larger than life, mislabeled as a poet character that he has become. No disrespect to the man but I think his death did more for him than his music ultimately ever would have. I wish he was still around so he could dispell the myths of his greatness!
Jim Morrison is a ham. nothing more, nothing less. Glaze his music with honey and serve it once a year.
There is no doubt in mind that Jim would have been bigger than mick, but... Jim would have dropped out of scene before making a fool of himself (steel wheels, my ace), or... Jim had attitude, art, and a poet\'s tormented heart, so I really don\'t think he would ever have made it this long regardless! BTW, play as many \"unplayed\" doors tunes you like (start with the changeling)
Is there any among the RP audience able to answer this question: if Jim Morrison had survived his drug and drinking, wouldn\'t he be badder and bigger than Mick? (And who knows, maybe he wouldn\'t have a string of kids from different groupies. ;) But perhaps I should only ask one question at a time!) One man\'s \"ugh!\" is another\'s \"aahhh!\" --Greg
Not enough Doors for me :) Man you are on fire today! Keep up the good work :)
