Whiskey, Mystics and Men

This song is by The Doors and appears on the compilation album Box Set (1997) and on the compilation album Essential Rarities (2000).

Well, I'll tell you a story of whiskey and mystics and men (Da da da)
And about the believers and how the whole thing began (Da da da)
First, there were women and children obeying the moon (Da da da)
Then daylight brought wisdom and fever and sickness consumed (Da da da)

You can try to remind me instead of the other, you can (Da da da)
You can help to ensure that we all insecure our command (Da da da)
If you don't give a listen, I won't try to tell your new hand (Da da da)
This is it, can't you see that we all have our ends in the band? (Da da da)
(Da da da, da da da)

And if all of the teachers and preachers of wealth were arraigned
We could see quite a future for me in the literal sands
And if all the people could claim to inspect such regrets (Da da da)
Well, we'd have no forgiveness, forgetfulness, faithful remorse (Da da da)
So I tell you, I tell you, I tell you, we must send away (Da da da)
We must try to find a new answer instead of a way
