AN AMERICAN PRAYER
"Do you know the warm progress under the stars? Do you know we exist? Have you forgotten the keys to the Kingdom? Have you been born yet and are you alive?
Let's reinvent the gods, all the myths of the ages. Celebrate symbols from deep elder forests. [Have you forgotten the lessons of the ancient war?]
We need great golden copulations.
The fathers are cackling in trees of the forest And our mother is dead in the sea.
Do you know we are being led to Slaughters by placid admirals, And that fat slow generals are getting Obscene on young blood? Do you know we are ruled by TV?
The moon is a dry blood beast. Guerrilla bands are rolling numbers In the next block of green vine, Amassing for warfare on innocent Herdsman who are just dying . . ."
Lyrics taken from "An American Prayer"
The Doors/Jim Morrison
Moody and mesmerizing, An American Prayer is an interesting album of Jim Morrison reading his poetry over the Doors' music. An American Prayer was finished by the remaining members of the Doors after Morrison's death and finally released in 1978 (it was remastered and re-released in 1995). Those familiar with the lyrics of the Doors will not be surprised, but others may be put off because Morrison is unafraid to use crude imagery and talk unabashedly about taboo topics. Although many dismiss his poetry as simplistic random musings, Morrison was a gifted lyricist with a vivid imagination.
