The Doors, The End

Uma canção mítica…

Ao vivo!

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, yeah

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's 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 callin' us

The blue bus is callin' us

Driver, where you taken' us ?

The killer awoke before dawn, he put his boots

He took a face from the ancient gallery

And he walked on down the hall

He went 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

And he came to a door...and he looked inside

"Father ?", "yes son",

"I want to kill you" "Pai?",

"Mother...I want to...fuck you"

C'mon baby, take a chance with us (3x)

And meet me at the back of the blue bus

Doin' a blue rock, On a blue bus

Doin' a blue rock, C'mon, yeah

Kill, kill, kill, kill, kill, kill

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 nights we tried to die

This is the end

Jim Morrison

“The End” é uma canção dos Doors, originalmente escrita por Jim Morrison, com uma simples canção de despedida, possivelmente para uma namorada, ela evoluiu depois de inúmeras apresentações ao vivo no ‘Whisky a Go Go, em Los Angeles.

Um quase opus de 12 minutos no álbum homónimo. A banda iria executar a canção para encerrar o seu último jogo.

“The End” foi lançada em Janeiro de 1967, pelos Doors. A canção não está relacionada com a canção dos Beatles, com o mesmo nome, que foi lançada dois anos depois, em Abey Road.

“The End” foi classificada na posição 328, na tabela elaborada em 2004, pela Roling Stone, das 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
