"Break On Through (To the Other Side)" is a song by the Doors from their debut album, The Doors. It was the first single released by the band.
This is the quintessential Doors song. Vivid with exceptional imagery, drug use metaphor, psychedelic musical composition, and amazing vocals, this is a great example of everything The Doors do the best, and all on the same track.
Jim Morrison was way into his psychedelics, and this is most likely a reference on LSD use and the presumption that it helps users to have that breakthrough… Getting out of (social) reality, drawing new connections and acquiring a clearer image of what’s going on. After such an epiphany, one could claim that they passed on to the other side. James Douglas Morrison (December 8, 1943 – July 3, 1971) was an American singer, songwriter, and poet, best remembered as the lead vocalist of the rock band the Doors. Due to his poetic lyrics, distinctive voice, wild personality, performances, and the dramatic circumstances surrounding his life and early death, Morrison is regarded by music critics and fans as one of the most iconic and influential frontmen in rock music history.
Its worth mentioning that the name The Doors itself, was inspired by Aldous Huxley's novel The Doors of Perception which contains accounts of the author’s mescaline trips. Aldous Huxley borrowed the title of his book from a stanza in William Blake’s The Marriage of Heaven and Hell.
Break On Through (To the Other Side) Lyrics
[Verse 1] You know the day destroys the night Night divides the day Tried to run Tried to hide
[Chorus] Break on through to the other side Break on through to the other side Break on through to the other side, yeah
[Verse 2] We chased our pleasures here Dug our treasures there But can't you still recall The time we cried
[Chorus] Break on through to the other side Break on through to the other side
[Bridge] Everybody loves my baby Everybody loves my baby She gets high She gets high She gets high She gets high, yeah
[Verse 3] I found an island in your arms Country in your eyes Arms that chain Eyes that lie
[Chorus] Break on through to the other side Break on through to the other side Break on through oh, oh yeah
[Verse 3] Made the scene Week to week Day to day Hour to hour The gate is strait Deep and wide
[Outro] Break on through to the other side Break on through to the other side Break on through Break on through Break on through Break on through Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah Yeah
