Open Doors [Insight] Print option in slimbox / lytebox? (info) E-mail

the wind has swept the ashes away and my crawling heart stands up
the air smells fresh, the pain has stopped
the rooftop is not far away and I start climbing up the stairs
not sure what I might find out there

standing on the isle of air the clouds turn to searchlights
then I start to realize they’re looking out for me
revolving round a field of doors they’re tryin to catch me
feelin like a refugee on the flight across the sea

the secret is behind these doors (you run from your life – but there’s no reason to hide)
and I don’t know which one to take (you’ve got the power to get through)
cause everybody’s calling me – (just stop to lie and start to realize)
too many choices there to make (finding yourself is hard for you)

the roof is like a carousel my soul needs a recast
your future is your secret past
examine your dusty memories and your subconscious mind
the answer’s buried deep inside

I am looking for a way to find out the right one
but everyone is showing me another open door
it’s hard to make a choice out there cause everyone is calling
from the other side – I feel like being pushed to the wall

the secret is behind these doors (you run from your life – but there’s no reason to hide)
and I don’t know which one to take (you’ve got the power to get through)
cause everybody’s calling me – (just stop to lie and start to realize)
too many choices there to make (yourself to find is hard to do)

a block of stone just cannot roll - flying birds are not there to crouch
feel like an old dunkey that has to run like a (racing) horse
a withered flower that has to bloom like a rose
I can’t change the truth but I can change the rules
the only way out is to go through these doors
so I take a run-up no reason to stop
the handle’s near

the secret is behind these doors (just push the door, it’s your way up from the floor)
no matter which one I’ll take
the first step is the hardest one
but the best one I could make
the puzzles fixed, there’s no more risk
behind these open doors
I feel so strong, I find my way to walk on
through open doors
