What do they mean?
What do the lyrics to the song “The end” by THE DOORS mean?

I have a guess, but it’s not a grand one. I was thinking it might be about the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. The reason I say it’s not a good guess is because I don’t feel too strongly that this was the true meaning that Jim Morrison intended. Really, the only basis I have to support my theory is the “…Roman wilderness” reference. I know that Golgotha was far away from Rome…but there were Roman soldiers there at the crucifixion.

Does anyone know the true meaning of the song?

The spoken-word section of the song includes the lines with the last two words screamed unintelligibly is often thought of as an homage to Sophocles’ Oedipus the King, a production of which Jim Morrison worked on while at Florida State University.
Morrison even said in 1969, “Everytime I hear that song, it means something else to me. It could be goodbye to a kind of childhood.” Morrison had also said that the song is an inside trip, and that “kill the father” means destroying everything hierarchical, controlling, and restrictive in one’s psyche, while “f*** the mother” means embracing everything that is expansive, flowing, and alive in the psyche. This interpretation of his own lyrics recalls to us Morrison’s lifelong passion for freedom. He may have been influenced by the Jungian concepts of individuation and archetypes, and was certainly influenced by Friedrich Nietzsche’s concept of going beyond the limited types of human beings that have so far existed by loving Dionysian vitality and life (“the mother”) while rejecting Apollonian systems and traditions (“the father”). The lyrics’ reference to “the Blue Bus” is almost certainly a reference to Indian mystic Meher Baba’s “Blue Bus” tours of the 1930s. However, it may also be a reference to Santa Monica’s Big Blue Bus public bus lines or Fetrow’s blue bus which they took many trips in.
