"The Door" as written by and Johns....
Could've been like before
Could've had to lock the door

Make your mind
Let the door, let the door swing
Only one,
Only one to let the door

Wanted to pretend he's dead
Didn't have to pretend

Make your mind
Let the door, let the door swing
Only one,
Only one to let the door

All this and more
Makes no sense to me
All this and more
Makes me drown

Let me know if it's alright
Let me know if you just might

Make your mind
Let the door, let the door swing
Only one,
Only one to let the door

All this and more
Makes no sense to me
All this and more
Makes no sense to me
All this and more
Makes no sense to me
All this and more
Makes me drown

    General CommentI think the door is a metaphor for your mind. As in to be open to idea, be dead to the world. Hey, it was written when johns was going through a bit of bad times.
    Remember, this is just what the song means to me.

    General CommentTWO COMMENTS FOR THE DOOR?

    well, maybe thats because its pretty hard to work out what he means i guess. but its a great song, one of their best. and if uve ever seen this one live, u can die happy. i personally havent, but several times on tv footage of live performances. so i guess ill die apathetic.

    General CommentActually, the meaning is quite funny..
    "That's not about anything.
    That's about absolutely nothing, that song.
    It's just a whole heap of words that fitted.
    I guess if it was about anything,
    it'd have to be about a door. -Daniel Johns"

    General CommentJust me, or is it always hard to figure out what he means? Great lyrics, but so goddamn cryptic.

    General CommentI agree with Juzzeth, this song didn't mean anything when he wrote it. It has a good sound and it flows, but as for meaning, there isn't one. And Silverchair rocks!!!

    General CommentMaybe Juzzeth's right but remember that we can never trust 100% what Daniel says to interviews haha

    General CommentAwesome song but let's be honest, most of the lyrics on Frogstomp and Freak Show aren't exactly deep or meaningful. I always figured this one was just random sentences which go together so I'm inclined to believe Daniel there.

    General CommentAgree with Buzzeth about the "meaning", but this is my favourite song on Freak Show simply because of the music.
