You know if the admistrators can figure out how to combine both boards it would be well worth their time. There are things from the the message board that would greatly enhance this new board and give it much more dimension concerning the Doors and from my end especially Jim. For instance has this board seen Jim's great grandfather and the startling similarity? This is truly amazing and anyone who is a Doors fan will indeed appreciate this.

Hey everyone! Glad to be a part of a community of Doors fans! I recently just google searched what mysticated wine is supposed to mean and though I didn't find a very satisfying answer, I was amazed at how there was discussion on different sites on the web about the meaning of different Doors songs. I looked at a page on 'The Spy' and was amazed that it was all just random guesses from people with no clear-cut answer that was agreed upon and accepted. I'll stick to just tackling one song per post, so I figured I'll make my first post here a theory on what the spy is actually about. Out there, sure maybe… But hopefully you'll find it interesting!
I want to go out on a limb and say that The Spy could potentially be about Orwell's 1984? For starters, in the book there is the ministry of love, and the one for peace, and etc. The song starts off saying that he's a spy in the house of love. Unlikely referring to an orgy filled estate. I know the dream that you're dreaming of, I know the word that you long to hear… Now to be fair I could have a much better explanation had I actually finished the book (I've read the first half and never had time to finish it :/) but the main character in the beginning is questioning his blind loyalty and obedience to big brother, and longs to find someone else who feels the same way. There is a government official pretty high up in which he becomes acquainted with who he hopes will say something, to reveal that he too is against this. The next line in the song is I know your deepest secret fear. This fear is apparent in the main character. Big brother knows the dream you're dreaming of, your deepest fears, etc. I know everything you do, everywhere you go, everyone you know… I'm a spy. Sounds like a full scale police state government is the spy to me… At the end he puts heavy emphasis on knowing your deepest secret fear. And then it ends with I'm a spy, I can see what you do, and I know… "know" is to reflect pretty much being omniscient, the spy knows everything.
