Dark lyrics | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/24/08

i used to listen to this song when drinking some vodka.it's very spiritual song, but there's somthing dark about it, is simply try to explain the none sens of this world !!!
that gives fear to me

Awesome | Reviewer: Rick | 12/22/07

This song has a much deeper meaning than just a song. This is a work of art. He's saying that music is the artists only friend since everyone else hates the artist for being better than them. Jim may have died but his spirit lives on through his music.

Doors songs were heavy on message, ie. the messages of the times. This song and others of Morrison's -- and many many others of the genre/time -- were clearly about the anticipation of the End of mankind's dreams, specifically the prophesied END of Man's reign. Yes, biblical prophesy, astrological prophesy, doomsayers' prophesy; or quite precisely, The Eschaton. Some others who (irregularly) plied similar message were Hendrix, Donovan, the Beatles, King Crimson and an almost endless list. They were cynical times back then. But then Reagan was shot and healed and everything turned rosy for a decade ...or two ...or three ...but The Eschaton won't be belayed.

prescient song still burningly relevant 40 years later | Reviewer: mac | 2/27/07

"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..." Morrison wrote this about 1966, the Doors recorded and released it in '67, and in our SUV-crazed, oil-gobbling, war-making nation, our McMansion-10,000-BTU burning houses, nobody, I mean nobody, has better depicted the waste and greed that results in earth-devastation and Iraq wars. Oh, and the music is first rate; Manzarek, Krieger, and Densmore, a trio of instrumentalists, producing superb and variegated backing for Morrison's alternating murmurs and howls. If only Morrison had lived...

The Doors...has to be a good song. | Reviewer: Miles Sieminski | 2/16/05

For any fan of The Doors, that just listens to the greatest hits....thats just shit, be a true fan and experience as much of the bands music as possible, it makes the listener appreciate the band much more. 'When the music's over' is a song about Jim Morrison living his dream by using the music to break through(as said in the song break on through(to the other side). The song is also about him knowing that his dream would eventually end by him dying(listen to this song, and 'The End').
