When the music's over
When the music's over, yeah
Turn out the lights
Turn out the lights
For the music is your special friend
Dance on fire as it intends
Music is your only friend
Until the end

When the music's over
When the music's over
Turn out the lights
Turn out the lights
Turn out the lights
For the music is your special friend
Dance on fire as it intends
Music is your only friend
Until the end

Cancel my subscription to the resurrection
Send my credentials to the house of detention
I got some friends inside
The face in the mirror won't stop
The girl in the window won't drop
A feast of friends, alive she cried
Waiting for me
Outside

Before I sink into the big sleep
I want to hear
I want to hear
The scream of the butterfly

Come back baby
Back into my arms
We're getting tired of hanging around
Waitin' around with our heads to the ground
I hear a very gentle sound
Very near yet very far
Very soft yet very clear
Come today
Come today

What have they done to the earth
What have they done to our fair sister
Ravaged and plundered and ripped her and bit her
Stuck her with knives in the side of the dawn
And tied her with fences and dragged her down
I hear a very gentle sound
With your ear down to the ground
We want the world and we want it
Now
(We want the world and we want it)
Now
Now?
NOW!!

Persian night, babe
See the light, babe
Save us, Jesus
Save us

So when the music's over
Turn out the lights
The music is your special friend
Dance on fire as it intends
Music is your only friend
Until the end
This song is from the album "Strange Days", "The Very Best Of The Doors (40th Anniversary)" and "Live At The Matrix 1967".
