Wishful crystal
Water covers everything in blue
Coolin' water
Wishful sinful
Our love is beautiful to see
I know where I would like to be
Right back where I came
Wishful, sinful, wicked blue
Water covers you
Wishful, sinful, wicked you
Can't escape the blue
Magic risin'
Sun is shinin' deep beneath the sea
But not enough for you and me and sunshine
Love to hear the wind cry
Wishful sinful
Our love is beautiful to see
I know where I would like to be
Right back where I came
Wishful, sinful, wicked blue
Water covers you
Wishful, sinful, wicked you
Can't escape the blue
Love to hear the wind cry
Love to hear you cry, yeah, yeah

    General CommentSure, Jim may have not been ever so happy about singing it, granted, but that doesn't deter the beautiful, "crystal" sound the song has.

    I do agree, it's positively beautiful.

    "Wishful, sinful, wicked you
    Can't escape the blue"

    General CommentThis song is clearly about planet earth.
    "Water covers everything in blue"

    Wishful Sinful describes the people of earth, hopeful yet sinful in their actions.
    "Wishful, sinful, wicked blue
    Water covers you Earth
    Wishful, sinful, wicked you Eveybody is wicked
    Can't escape the blue"

    Environmental? Political? Hard to tell, mabye thats why Jim didn't like it appearently.

    My InterpretationI will get down to basics. Wishful Sinful is about Creation and the destruction of the earth at the time of Noah by the Flood. When God made the heavens and the earth, as described in Genesis 1, He created water and matter. The Creation before the Fall of Adam and Eve displayed a pure love between God and the human race: this is the wishful crystal. Wishful sinful is the condition of the relationship between God and the human race after the Fall. Men and women are inherently sinful. "Water covers everything in blue" refers to the destruction of the earth at the time of Noah. "Can't escape the blue" means that the human race cannot escape destruction because of its rebellion against God. "I know where I would like to be right back where I came" refers to the sinless relationship between God and the human race. "Our love is beautiful see" is also about the sinless relationship between God and the human race. I believe Robbie Krieger wrote the lyrics to this song. "Magic rising" is the alternative to a pure relationship with God. However, "magic rising" is not enough for men and women, who need God. Unlike Jim Morrison, Robbie thought about things other than sex, drugs, death, and alcohol.

    General CommentI love the intermission in between the first "Love to hear the wind cry" and "Wishful sinful" with the whole snake charmer music!

    General CommentMaybe Im crazy but I think this song is about a guy drowning his girlfriend. It sounds like all the thoughts that are going through his head as hes doing it. He says "our love is beautiful to see" like its only nice on the outside but its really a bad relationship. Everything to me just seems to tie ino that theme in the song. Maybe its just me though?
