  • The cars hiss by my window
    Like the waves down on the beach
    The cars hiss by my window
    Like the waves down on the beach
    I got this girl beside me, but she's
    Out of reach

    Headlight through my window
    Shinin' on the wall
    Headlight through my window
    Shinin' on the wall
    Can't hear my baby
    Though I called and called

    Windows started tremblin'
    With a sonic boom
    Windows started tremblin'
    With a sonic boom, boom
    A cold girl'll kill you
    In a darkened room

  • Oldpink from Farmland, InDefinitely one of the creepiest songs in a long list of creepy songs from the Doors.
