the end-doors

This is the end
Beautiful friend
This is the end
My only friend, the end

Of our elaborate plans, the end
Of everything that stands, the end
No safety or surprise, the end
I’ll never look into your eyes…again

Can you picture what will be
So limitless and free
Desperately in need…of some…stranger’s hand
In a…desperate land

Lost in a Roman…wilderness of pain
And all the children are insane
All the children are insane
Waiting for the summer rain, yeah

There’s danger on the edge of town
Ride the King’s highway, baby
Weird scenes inside the gold mine
Ride the highway west, baby

Ride the snake, ride the snake
To the lake, the ancient lake, baby
The snake is long, seven miles
Ride the snake…he’s old, and his skin is cold

The west is the best
The west is the best
Get here, and we’ll do the rest

The blue bus is callin’ us
The blue bus is callin’ us
Driver, where you taken’ us

The killer awoke before dawn, he put his boots on
He took a face from the ancient gallery
And he walked on down the hall
He went into the room where his sister lived, and…then he
Paid a visit to his brother, and then he
He walked on down the hall, and
And he came to a door…and he looked inside
Father, yes son, I want to kill you
Mother…I want to…fuck you

C’mon baby, take a chance with us
C’mon baby, take a chance with us
C’mon baby, take a chance with us
And meet me at the back of the blue bus
Doin’ a blue rock
On a blue bus
Doin’ a blue rock
C’mon, yeah

Kill, kill, kill, kill, kill, kill

This is the end
Beautiful friend
This is the end
My only friend, the end

It hurts to set you free
But you’ll never follow me
The end of laughter and soft lies
The end of nights we tried to die

This is the end

 

This song named « the end », it’s an extract of the first Doors’ album intitled « the Doors ». It was writing in 1967 by Jim Morrisson and his musicians.

This band born in L.A Californie, in 1665, and during the 7 following years, they going down in music history. Now The Doors are considerated as one of the biggest 70’s rock band.

But Jim Morrisson who was a drug addict, died at the age of 27 years old, and the band fell 2 years after.

This song, is really psycheledic. He’s long, 12 minutes, and we have some long instrumental passages (an electric guitar solo, an electric piano solo, …)

In the text, we don’t know if Jim talks about a girl, about him, about his parents …

Firstly we can thing he sing about his last girlfriend, but fastly, we can’t follow him. He talks about a « blue bus » and a killer. (Jim was fascinated by the dead.)

He mentionned his parents, but we can interpreted this as a reference to Sophocle, more precisly, to « Oedipe Roi ». He say « father, I want to kill you, Mother, I want to f*** you ».

In the drama « Oedipe Roi », Oedipe killed his father and married his mother.

To conclued, I love this song, because we really enter in the strange world of Jim Morrisson, with lot of contradictory feelings, pain and joy, calm and stressful at the same time.

into the wild

« Into the wild » is a novel writted by Jon Krakauer in 1996 and adapted in movie by Sean Penn in 2007.

This book is a biographic novel who related the life of Christopher Jonhson McCandless, a young man , just graduate. This young man decided to left the civilisation and to lives alone in Alaska, regardless of the danger that represents. He mets some people who helped him to reach his goal. He passed 2 years lonesome in the wild but finally dies to intoxication.

On the beginning of each chapter, there are a short passage of poetry like Lord Byron or an extract of an other novel likes « White Fang » of Jack London. All of this extract talks about the relation human/nature.

Into the wild is my favourite book, because it shows how the civilation shoud be more dangerous than nature , and how many the humans relations cant be important for shared some point of view. For the film, I find it really amazing because the nature’s picture are very beautiful and it’s faithful of the original story.

the old man and the sea

The old man and the sea is a novel written by Ernest Hemingway in 1951. It’s a fictionnal story who won the pulitzer price in 1953.

It talk about an old fisherman who thought himself cursed who decide to goes in the Gulf Steam. He finished by have a fish , a really big fish who didn’t want to be captured. He fought it along 3 days and 2 nights , and finally , the old man won and killed the enormous fish. The fish’s body couldn’t stay in the boat so , the old man decided to lets it in the water and to hangs it at the boat. But the Sharks began to eat the old man’s prey and the poor fisherman come back to his Harbor with only the head of the fish.

I’ve like this story ’cause it shows good the power of the nature and we can deduce a moral philosophy as « whatever you do , the environnement always win , bu if if you deserve it , it can do , for you , a favor »
