i Don’t Want To Be Jim Morrison Anymore

You can pro’lly tell i used to be a preacher. A preacher-in-training, anyway. i have preached a sermon in front of a congregation of around 300 people. All of this before the age of 18. But then again, who hasn’t?

Jim Morrison converted me. By that i mean got me out of the church. i read No One Here Gets Out Alive and it threw a switch in me. i realized i could be anything i wanted to be, i learned i was allowed to have fun.

What Flicked My Switch

What Flicked My Switch

Jim Morrison took up residence in me and erred behind my Doors. Until i started drinking. As soon as i got my buzz on, the Doors of perception got blown off their hinges.

That worked for a couple decades.

Now i want to be Robert Plant.

The easy thing about being Jim Morrison is that he died when he was 27. He was never (legally) married and his love life was disastrous.

Robert Plant, however, partied like a fiend when he was fronting Zeppelin. If you don’t believe me, check out Hammer Of The Gods:

Hammer Of The Gods

But Plant had the bad luck of not dying. He grew up.

On the bright side, he evolved. His attitude is zen and his talent has aged like fine leather.

He’s made the necessary changes to be happy, and not just happy, but happy with himself.

i could use a little of that today…

Lyrics

The Doors – Break On Through

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.

Yeah!
C’mon, yeah.

Everybody loves my baby,
Everybody loves my baby.
She gets
She gets
She gets
She gets higghhhh!

I found an island in your arms,
A country in your eyes,
Arms that chained us, eyes that lied.
Break on through to the other side,
Break on through to the other side,
Break on through, wow, 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,
Break, break, break, break,
Break, break, break, break,
Break.

Robert Plant – Horizontal Departure

And you said you’d never leave me
And you said you’d be my only one
And I said you’d never grieve me, baby
For things you do when you are only having fun
You said you’d cry a river
I thought you meant you’d cry a river of tears
You’d rather die than live without me, baby
But little girl, you’re so insincere

You know you count your blessings
But now I find that you were counting sheep, counting sheep
And then I try to court your feelings
I caught your eye and then you caught my cheek
All the things must come to fruit now
And there you stood so proud the apple of my eye
You said you’d never leave me, baby
But little girl, that’s the reason why
Whoa – that’s why I have to leave you all alone
Whoa – that’s why you have to leave me all alone

Let’s go collect our prize now
So entertaining we were number one, number one
The judge is hypnotised now
But after all we both been fooled for so damn long
So face the crowd and take a bow now, bow now
‘Cause one more time and it will all be done
‘Cause I must leave the show to you now, baby
My last performance has just begun
Whoa – that’s why I have to leave you all alone
Whoa – that’s why you have to leave me all alone —

Stop and think for a minute, baby
As they bring the curtain down
Another drink, then another maybe
The toast will not be found

I taught you style, the ducking and the weaving
We were famous for
And here’s to him, and here’s to yours
And you can take the floor, the floor
Whoa – that’s why I have to leave you all alone
Whoa – that’s why you have to leave me all alone

I don’t know – so you turned around and found another fool
I don’t know – so you turned around and found another —
