The doors, light my fire & riders on the storm

You know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar
If I was to say to you
Girl, we couldn't get much higher.
Come on baby, light my fire —
Come on baby, light my fire —
Try to set the night on fire.

"Light my fire" (1967) is in tegenstelling tot wat velen geloven niet geschreven door Jim Morrison, maar door gitarist Robby Krieger (althans de eerste versie). Hetzelfde geldt voor nummers zoals "love her madly", "you're lost little girl" en "touch me", etc...

Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm
Into this house we're born
Into this world we're thrown
Like a dog without a bone
And actor out on loan
Riders on the storm

We're like actors, turned loose in this world to wander in search of a phantom, endlessly searching for a half-formed shadow of our lost reality. When others demand that we become the people they want us to be, they force us to destroy the person we really are. It's a subtle kind of murder. The most loving parents and relatives commit this murder with smiles on their faces.
