James Douglas(Jim Morrison)

Thrown into this world  
An outsider  
Exiled from paradise  
As a fallen angel  

The chains that shackled you above  
Now failingly tried to bind you below  
 
An instinctive rebel  
Who dared to ask why?  
 
You set the kindling  
Ablaze under America's youth  
Fanned the flames  
And watched as it grew  
 
A poetic call to arms  
For life, love, and  
The pursuit of happiness  
 
Yet with anything that causes dissent  
Your country labeled you deviant  
 
A modern day crucifixion  
Staged for the world to see  
Yet you did not bow  
To these self serving political gods  
 
A farcical trial to stamp out your words  
Labeled as a witch hunt and absurd  
 
Death came calling  
Welcomed with no fear  
Cause as you once said  
"The future's uncertain  
And the end is always near!"  
 
Twenty seven years the phoenix rose  
Expanding his luminescent glow  
 
Exploding at his pinnacle  
The scattered fires set off eternal flames  
To your devoted followers  
Who would carry on your name
