Doors – Heroin lyrics

Don't know
Just where I'm going
But I'm
Gonna try
For the kingdom
If I can
Cuz it makes me feel like I'm a man
When I put a spike into my vain
And I tell you things aren't quite the same
When I'm rushing on my run
And I feel just like Jesus' son
And I guess
That I just don't know
And I guess
That I just don't know

Have made
Big decisions
Gonna try
To nullify my life
Cuz when the blood
Begins to flow
When it shoots up the droppers neck
When I'm closing in on death
You can't help
Not you guys
Or all you sweet girls with all your sweet talk
You can all
Go take a walk
And I guess
I just don't know
And I guess
That I just don't know.

Wish that
I was born a thousand years ago
Wish that
I'd sailed the darkened seas
On a great big clipper ship
Going from this land here to that
In a sailor's suit and cap
Oh we're from the big city
Where a man can not be free
Of all the evils of this town
And of himself
And those around
And I guess that I just don't know
Oh well I guess that I just don't know.

Be the death of me
It's my wife and it's my life
Because a mainer to my vain
Leads to a center
In my head
And then I am better
Off than dead

Because when the smack
Begins to flow
I really don't care anymore
About all the gin gins
In this town
And all the politicians
Making crazy sounds
And everybody putting
Everybody else down
And all the dead bodies
Piled up in mounds

Cuz when the smack
Begins to flow
I really don't care anymore
When the heroine is in my blood
And that blood is in my head
Man thank God that I'm good as dead
And thank your God that I'm not aware
And thank God that I just don't care
And I guess that I just don't know
And I guess
I just don't know
