the doors – ghost song lyrics
shake dreams from your hair
my pretty child, my sweet one.
choose the day and choose the sign of your day
the day’s divinity
first thing you see.
a vast radiant beach in a cool jeweled moon
couples naked race down by it’s quiet side
and we laugh like soft, mad children
smug in the wooly cotton brains of infancy
the music and voices are all around us.
choose they croon the ancient ones
the time has come again
choose now, they croon
beneath the moon
beside an ancient lake
enter again the sweet forest
enter the hot dream
come with us
everything is broken up and dances.
on dawn’s highway bleeding
ghosts crowd the young child’s,
fragile eggsh-ll mind
we have -ssembled inside,
this ancient and insane theater
to propagate our l-st for life,
and flee the swarming wisdom of the streets.
the barns have stormed
the windows kept,
and only one of all the rest
to dance and save us
from the divine mockery of words,
music inflames temperament.
ooh great creator of being
grant us one more hour,
to perform our art
and perfect our lives.
we need great golden copulations,
when the true kings murderers
are allowed to roam free,
a thousand magicians arise in the land
where are the feast we are promised?
