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
Break on through to the other side, yeah

We chased our pleasures here
Dug our treasures there
But can you still recall
The time we cried?

Break on through to the other side
Break on through to the other side

Everybody loves my baby
Everybody loves my baby
She get, she get
She get, she get high

I found an island in your arms
Country in your eyes
Arms that chain
Eyes that lie

Break on through to the other side
Break on through to the other side
Break on through, auh, oh, yeah

Made the scene, week to week
Day to day, hour to hour
The gate is straight
Deep and wide

Break on through to the other side
Break on through to the other side
Break on through, break on through
Break on through, break on through
Hey hey hey hey
Hey hey hey hey hey

Songwriters
Jim Morrison;John Densmore;Robbie Kreiger;Ray Manzarek

But Jim, what exactly is on the other side?


#4

I think it was a thinly veiled reference to “drugs”, MAN…


#5

Or sex. Seems like those were about the only two topics of his lyrics. Oh, and don’t forget drinking!


#6

Has everybody forgotten what a raging right-winger Morrison was?

The song was a thinly-veiled appeal to expand the Vietnam war into Cambodia.

Dead cats, dead rats
Can’t see what they were at, all right
Dead cat in a top hat, wow
Sucking on the young man’s blood
Wishing he could come, yeah
Sucking on the soldier’s brain
Wishing it would be the same

Dead cat, dead rat
Can’t you see what they were at?
Fat cat in a top hat
Thinks he’s an aristocrat
Thinks he can kill and slaughter
Thinks he can shoot my daughter

Yeah right! Oh yeah!
Oh right! Yeeah!

Dead cats, dead rats
Think they’re an aristocrat
Crap, now that’s crap!


#9

Such talent! That’s right up there with:

There’s a killer on the road
His brain is squirming like a toad

“Doors fans aren’t made: they’re born.”


#11

Well, an argument could be made that the Doors were a great band who were unfortunately stuck with Jim Morrison as a leader, but, based on their post-Morrison output, they were nothing without him.
