"The Key" as written by Bob Marlette, Richard Young, Chris Robertson, John Young, Ben Wells and Jon Lawhorn....
Out here there's a hole in the sky
Doors open to the other side
I saw a two headed dog fightin' over a bone
Black haired woman turn into crows

I gotta take a step back and think this through
Gotta know it's true

I gotta know if I'm livin' in a dream
Is this what it seems
Gotta know anyone believes
How did I get lost, what's the final cost
Could you please help me find the key

Out here, under the willow tree
Deep down is where you'll find the key
I've been here once before maybe in a dream
Thylacines play tambourines

I gotta take a step back and think this through
Gotta know it's true

I gotta know if I'm livin' in a dream
Is this what it seems
Gotta know anyone believes
How did I get lost, what's the final cost
Could you please help me find the key

Out here the sayin' goes
Off with the lights and on with the show
Once it's dark the children play
They all join hands and dance around the grave

I gotta know if I'm livin' in a dream
Is this what it seems
Gotta know anyone believes
How did I get lost, what's the final cost
Could you please help me find the key

    General CommentVery descriptive lyrics. The "key" would have to be the key to life. Looking at the lyrics "how did i get lost? what's the final cost? could you please help me find the key?" getting your life back on track. Middle section with Banjo reminds me of story time.
