Dawn’s Highway - The Doors

Album: An American Prayer

genre: Rock

Indians scattered on dawn’s highway bleeding.
Ghosts crowd the young child’s fragile eggshell mind

Blood in the streets
In the town of New Haven.
Blood stains the roofs
And the palm trees of Venice.
Blood in my love
In the terrible summer.
Bloody red sun of
Phantastic L.A.

Blood screams her brain
As they chop off her fingers.
Blood will be born
In the birth of a nation.
Blood is the rose of
Mysterious union.
Blood on the rise,
It’s following me.

Indian, Indian
What did you die for?
Indian says nothing at all.

An American Prayer Calvin Harris album lyrics
Jim Morrison recorded this during the 1969 and the 1970 poetry sessions. Ulteriorly, the rest of the members added the music.
It is linked to the next track, Newborn Awakening, and relates to Morrison's traumatic memory of a group of Indians dying in an auto accident.
