T H E E N D: A study of demonic imagery in the 60's classic
An excellent song. Lots of symbolism for sure...Jim Morrison was a master of spoken word imagery, but I suspect he had "help" from forces unknown. Without posting any material that may be copy protected....here's my interpretation of a few key parts within the song.

The narrator takes on the character of another more ancient being as he takes his face from the gallery....demonic possession. He then precedes to kill his family / rape his mother. This is about as in your face as it gets, but sets the tone for the song. Other more subtle lines follow...

Yea...the snake imagery is obvious in its phallic reference, but what is "the lake" the snake is being rode to referencing? I suggest a dual meaning here....the obvious one is the lake of fire. The not so obvious is female ejaculation. No chuckling...this is serious. I suggest this is thinly veiled imagery of the original sin. Remember....the snake is old. A direct reference to Satan and his role in theses events.

And one more that is even more subtle...

The song asks that the listener to...take a chance with us. Repeated three times sequentially this seems like a harmless little aside, but I get the sense that this is suggesting a selling of ones soul. Previous lines clue us in to who "us" really is and the "chance" being taken suggests a wager being made regarding the unknown. There is no guarantee. Take a chance. Who knows what the outcome will be...but if you lose, you lose your soul. Whenever you play a game of chance, there is always a wager. Be it money or something vastly more precious. Also throw in "the power of three's" as the line is repeated three times and this takes on an even more sinister incantation.

Lastly...

The end is a thinly veiled reference to death, describing it as both beautiful and a friend. The intent here is to present death to the listener as being innocuous.....as being "set free" as subsequent lines also suggest. The problem here is the game of chance being played as referenced earlier. Death is only harmless if you've bet on the winning color albeit red or black we shall only know in the end...pun intended.

This really is a masterpiece of poetry. I suggest everyone reading this find a link to the written text and study it in context....I tried to embed a link but GP won't allow me due to copyright I'm assuming. It's an amazing work of art subject to multiple interpretations. These are just mine, but i welcome differing opinions and interpretations as well as interpretations of some of the other lines from the song.

I've included a link to a live version of the song....check out Jim's "Lizard eyes" in the still frame from the YouTube link. damned

Enjoy!

Had a heck of a time posting this as an AC. GLP kept rejecting due to copy protection issues even though I never directly quote any of the lines from the piece.

Oh...and a big "efff you!" To the 1 star bandit BTW

jim morrison , had an unquenchable thirst for knowledge, he had a miniture library in his apt , prolly a thousand plus books, and he would often challenge someone to pick out any book they chose and read a sentence , and he would name the book the author ect, he never lost at that . he woke up the old fashioned hardway through massive amounts of reading.

Very interesting....I've never heard that before. Is there a biography or something with this info? I'd like to read it.
