Robby Krieger saw the way to writing lyrics for the Doors as drawing on the four elements as Morrison did. Earth, Air, Fire water. This was one of his water songs.
The music is rather pleasant with Ray's tinking piano reminicent of water cascading along the course of a river. Krieger demonstrates a fine example of how he was not the atypical rock guitar player. Drifting seemingly aimlessly through the song he delivers some excellent examples of just how good a guitar player he was. Densmore with his retrained brushes and a solid bass to support him provides a strong backbeat to what is essentially a decent example of The Doors at work. Morrison's vocal talents on display here are excellent and put paid to any idea he was just a screamer as he had rather an astonishing vocal range for a rock singer and was at ease doing Robert Plant or Frank Sinatra.
"That's the trouble with reality!.... it's taken far too seriously! I do hope God is good to me and Santa Claus to the children! Celebrate...this parties over...I'm going home!"
