After all the windows on the ground floor had been broken,
after all the under handing officers had spoken,
after all the trouble, after all of the commotion,
I walked right through, the door was always open.

When I was 17, I set out on the ocean,
searching for Columbus where ever he was going.
Been twenty thousand miles, came down to just a moment.
I sailed right though, the door was always open.

I climbed the Western wall without anybody knowing,
held the guradsman captive with a pistl I has stolen.
He just poured a cup of coffee and said "Son, now here's a notion.
Next time you drop by the door is always open."

So it seems I've spent a life time arrested and beholden,
standing on the threshold, absolutely frozen,
waiting some God above to tell me I was chosen,
Instead I spoke myself, "The door is always open."
Instead I spoke myself, "The door is always open."
