    When our reign on this Earth is over. When we have "ravaged and plundered and ripped her and bit her" for too long, our shining lights will go out. It will be over. "Turn out the light."
    "The face in the mirror won't stop" - we are all a part of it, we are all responsible. "The girl in the window won't drop" - the face of consumerism. The enabler; the feast for the friends. Yet she is real. She is human - not just a cog in the wheel. "Alive! She cried".

    Maybe it's difficult to imagine Jim Morrison in the 60's having these kinds of progressive thoughts, but just look at other songs like "Ship of Fools" from Morrison Hotel, and certain interviews, and it will become clear that he was very environmentally conscious.

    This is what this song means to me.

    The songs gives Jim Morrisons brilliant interpretation of the day when Rock Music dies. "The screams of the butterfly" referring to a new music that will come when it's over. It's been stated this song predicts the birth of grunge music - which ultimately led to the death of Rock.

    Another misconceived song with very dark lyrics. "When the musics over, turn out the lights." In other words you have no real friends on this earth but when music" your only friend till the end" no longer does it for you, "turn out the lights".
