Hi Acid,As far as I know that quote is not in any song. I actually got it from Oliver Stone's film "The Doors"I think that it could be from one of his poems but am not 100% sure.will get back to you

So far as I can find out, it's from a poem called "All The Poems". Here's the text I found, in several places, can't find a date though.All the poems... ACT IAll the poems have wolves in them,all but one -- the most beautiful one of all. She dances in a ring of fire and throws off the challenge with a shrug."Who did you right that one for?""I wrote it for you." ACT IIAll the poems have wolves in them,all but one -- the most beautiful one of all. I hope you go out smiling like a child into the cool remnant of a dream, the angel man finally claimed his benevolent soul. Ophelia, leaves sudden and silk chlorine dream -- mad stifled witness."This is the strangest life I have ever known."

I recommend you get some books..."no one here gets out alive" is a goodie and you can always get his book of poetry called "American Prayer"I'd go to a search engine like dogpile.com and type "jim morrison poetry" and see what that results in...good luck
