Riders on the storm,
There’s a killer on the road.
Strange days have found us.
The time to hesitate is through. His brain is squirming like a toad. Streets are uneven when you’re down. Lost in a Roman wilderness of pain. And all the children are insane.
The Doors of Perception is a 1954 book by Aldous Huxley detailing his experiences when taking mescaline.
The title comes from William Blake’s The Marriage of Heaven and Hell:
“If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things through narrow chinks of his cavern.”
