The Lyrics

A parody about The Doors deriving the band's name from Aldous Huxley's book "The Doors of Perception." Huxley in turn had taken the title from William Blake's "The Marriage of Heaven and Hell," in which Blake wrote, "If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is—infinite." Doors front man Jim Morrison borrowed directly from Blake's The Pickering Manuscript in "End of the Night": Some are born to sweet delight/Some are born to [the] endless night.
You know the boys played pretty tight. . .
Nightclubs in L.A.
Need a name,
Hard to find.

Blake gone through and Huxley besides.
Blake gone through and Huxley besides.
Blake gone through and Huxley besides, yeah.

Chased nomenclature here,
Dug monikers there.
Take a pill and mull
The mystic lines.

Blake gone through and Huxley besides.
Blake gone through and Huxley besides, yeah.

Everybody loves that Blake, he,
Everybody loves that Blake, he
Begets,
Begets,
Begets,
Begets name.

There's bifurcation in his yarns,
Between day and night;
Charms of babes,
Tigers bright.

Blake gone through and Huxley besides.
Blake gone through and Huxley besides.
Blake gone through, oh yeah.

Blake was seen
When they peaked,
Take the name.
How they glower.
A door's a gate
Between two sides.

Blake gone through and Huxley besides.
Blake gone through and Huxley besides.
Blake gone through,
Blake gone through,
Blake gone through,
Yeah, no, yeah, no,
Yeah, no, yeah, no, yeah.

To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And Heaven in a Wild Flower
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Vote John Barry Three Frikkin' Fives For This Mind-Blowing Parody

Thank you, Mr. Blake!

There was a singer once, I forget his name (really made an impression, huh?) who named his backup band the Owls, because his favorite American band was the Byrds and his favorite British band was The Who, and an owl is a bird that goes "Hoo!" Somewhere, there's gotta be a guy who named his band the Woodpeckers, because a woodpecker is a bird that makes its own doors. Actually, if Johnny D had a band, there's its name.

Naaah, the name of my band would be The Michael Pacholeks. All right, don't everybody throw up at once.
