The End" is a song by the American rock band The Doors. Its lyrics were written by lead singer Jim Morrison. He originally wrote the song about breaking up with his girlfriend Mary Werbelow, but it evolved through months of performances at Los Angeles' Whisky a Go Go into a nearly 12-minute track on their self-titled debut album. It was first released on January 4, 1967. The song was recorded live in the studio with no overdubbing

This is the end Beautiful friend This is the end My only friend The end. Of our elaborate plans, the end Of everything that stands, the end No safety or surprise, the end I'll never look into your eyes again. Can you picture what will be? So limitless and free Desperately in need Of some stranger's hand In a desperate land. It hurts to set you free But you'll never follow me The end of laughter and soft lies The end of nights we tried to die This is the end. More on Genius. The End served as the finale for many of The Doors' most notable concerts. The lyrics are a final combination of different variations sung during jam-style performances over several months at the Whiskey A Go Go nightclub in Los Angeles in 1966.

The End" is death, although the song also deals with Jim Morrison's parents - it contains Oedipal themes of loving the mother and killing the father. On August 21, 1966, Jim Morrison didn't show up for The Doors gig at the Whisky a Go Go. After playing the first set without him, the band retrieved Morrison from his apartment, where he had been tripping on acid. They always played "The End" as the last song, but Morrison decided to play it early in the set, and the band went along. When they got to the part where he could do a spoken improvisation, he started talking about a killer, and said, "Father, I want to kill you. Mother, I want to f-k you!" The crowd went nuts, but the band was fired right after the show.

I think every album was a step toward Dark Side of the Moon," keyboardist Rick Wright said. We were learning all the time; the techniques of the recording and our writing was getting better. As a culmination of their inner-space explorations of the early 1970s, the Floyd toured the bulk of Dark Side in Britain for months prior to recording. After blowing minds as the house band at . s Whisky-a-Go-Go, where they got fired for playing the Oedipal drama "The End," the Doors were ready to unleash their organ-driven rock on the world. On each song we had tried every possible arrangement," drummer John Densmore said, "so we felt the whole album was tight. The Blakean pop art on their debut was beyond Top 40 attention spans.
