Lyric Sourced:
You know the day destroys the night,Night divides the day,Tried to run —Tried to hide —Break on through to the other side!
"Break on Through (To The Other Side)" from The Doors (1967)
We chased our pleasures here,Dug our treasures there,But can you still recallThe time we cried?Break on through to the other side.
"Break on Through (To The Other Side)" from The Doors
It hurts to set you free, but you’ll never follow me.
"The End" from The Doors (1967)
People are strange when you're a strangerFaces look ugly when you're aloneWomen seem wicked when you're unwantedStreets are uneven when you're down.
"People Are Strange" on the album Strange Days (1967)
 
 At first flash of Eden, we race down to the sea.Standing there on freedom’s shore.Waiting for the sun...When you're strangeFaces come out of the rainWhen you're strangeNo one remembers your nameWhen you're strange.
"People Are Strange" on the album Strange Days (1967)
Five to one, babyOne in fiveNo one here gets out alive, nowYou get yours, babyI'll get mineGonna make it, babyIf we try.
"Five to One" on the album Waiting for the Sun (1968)
The old get olderAnd the young get strongerMay take a weekAnd it may take longerThey got the gunsBut we got the numbersGonna win, yeahWe're takin' overCome on!
"Five to One" on the album Waiting for the Sun (1968)
At first flash of Eden, We race down to the sea.Standing there on Freedom's shore.Waiting for the sun...

Killer on the roadHis brain is squirming like a toad.
"Riders on the Storm" from the album L.A. Woman (1971).
Listen to this, and I'll tell you 'bout the heartacheI'll tell you 'bout the heartache and the loss of God.
"The Wasp (Texas Radio And The Big Beat)" on the albums L. A. Woman (1971) and AnAmerican Prayer (1978)
I'll tell you this —No eternal reward will forgive us now for wasting the dawn.
"The Wasp (Texas Radio And The Big Beat)" on the albums L. A. Woman (1971) and AnAmerican Prayer (1978)
Mute nostril agony.
"Horse Latitudes"
 
Don't let me die in an automobileI wanna lie in an open fieldWant the snakes to suck my skinWant the worms to be my friendsWant the birds to eat my eyesAs here I lieThe clouds fly by
"The End; Live in New York" (1970)
The Lords: Notes on Vision (1969)
The Lords have secret entrances and they know disguises. But they give themselves away inminor ways. Too much glint of light in the eye. A wrong gesture. Too long and curious aglance...Yoga powers.To make oneself invisible or small.To become gigantic and reach to the farthest things.To change the course of nature.To place oneself anywhere in space or time.To summon the dead.To exalt senses and perceive inaccessible images, of events on other worlds,in one's deepest inner mind, or in the minds of others.(Windows work two ways, mirrors one way.)You never walk through mirrors or swim through windows.The world becomes an apparently infinite,yet possibly finite, card game.Image combinations,permutations,comprise the world game.Cinema has evolved in two paths. One is spectacle. Like the phantasmagoria, its goal is thecreation of a total substitute sensory world. The other is peep show, which claims for its realmboth the erotic and the untampered observance of real life, and imitates the keyhole or voyeur'swindow without need of color, noise, grandeur.The subject says "I see first lots of things which dance — then everything becomes graduallyconnected".Few would defend a small view of Alchemy as "Mother of Chemistry", and confuse its true goalwith those external metal arts. Alchemy is an erotic science, involved in buried aspects of reality,aimed at purifying and transforming all being and matter. Not to suggest that material operationsare ever abandoned. The adept holds to both the mystical and physical work.They can picture love affairs of chemicals and stars, a romance of stones, or the fertility of fire.Strange, fertile correspondences the alchemists sensed in unlikely orders of being. Between menand planets, plants and gestures, words and weather.Cinema returns us to anima, religion of matter, which gives each thing its special divinity andsees gods in all things and beings. Cinema, heir of alchemy, last of an erotic science.The Lords. Events take place beyond our knowledge or control. Our lives are lived for us. We canonly try to enslave others. But gradually, special perceptions are being developed. The idea of the"Lords" is beginning to form in some minds. We should enlist them into bands of perceivers totour the labyrinth during their mysterious nocturnal appearances. The Lords have secretentrances and they know disguises. But they give themselves away in minor ways. Too muchglint of light in the eye. A wrong gesture. Too long and curious a glance.
