"House Of Four Doors, Part 1" as written by and John Lodge....
Walking through that door
Outside we came nowhere at all
Perhaps the answers here
Not there anymore

Then in our hearts the light broke through
A path lost for years is there in view

House of four doors
You'll be lost now forever
House of four doors
Rest of life's life forever

House of four doors
You'll be lost now forever
House of four doors

    General CommentI kind of agree with Digi-G, however, I have been listening to the Moodies since the late 60's, saw them 3 times in person back in the early 70's and love their mysterious philisophical brilliant comps so much, The only problem is, to many people try to attribute a lot of their songs to either a simple shallow meaning, or an acid trip confusion. I really love these guys, but, I am afraid one of their main purposes is going against Christianity, thought they do it with good intentions.

    General CommentIf you listen closely, you'll find among their most beautiful and mysteriouis music and arrangements, they are allways searching for someone. It sounds like they are doing a lot of explaining, and yet questioning also. Allways leaving the world out there to wonder what they mean. (not all of their songs are religiously philosophical) but many are. I am a child of God. A born again non-charismatic , protestant (of course) Christian. and I believe we are put on this earth to worship God, love one another, help others and of course, please God by telling others about HIM. It is wonderful to just float away on the Moody Blues mysterious awesome music, but if you go around doubting the true living God, and set a self spiritual answer to who our maker and true living God is. Have faith and know after He proves to you when you give your heart to Him, through Jesus Christ.

    General Commenti guess the "house" they are refering to, is a place that has no meaning... probably wher you would end up on a good high...no direction..."lost" north south east west..Four doors.. "acid trip".. "seek to find within"

    General CommentOoookaaaay. It COULD mean that, I suppose. It could also be a musical exploration. Ever notice the different musical styles associated with the different doors? Less puffing and more listening!

    General CommentIts doesnt stand alone - its really part of a three-parter, with Legend of a Mind in the middle. They used the same structure in On The Threshold of a Dream. In this case, as a whole, the Moodies are "travelling" to a house of music experience - most likely dreamed from fables, myths and such, in search of the "Lost Chord", which requires them to look at the (oversimplified) music that has been - 4 ages, with rock being the fourth (Legend of a Mind). After experiencing all four types, the "house" fades away, and they eventually reach a spark - of what the "chord" is. Moodies albums are dense and fit songs in sequence. Then , on to side two!!
