When all is withered and torn
And all has perished and fallen
These great wooden doors shall remain closed. . .

When the heart is a grave filled with blood
And the soul is a cold and haunted shell of lost hope
When the voice of pride has been silenced
And dignity's fires are but cinders
. . .their grandeur shall remain untainted

It is this grandeur that protects the spirit within
From the plight of this broken world, from the wounds in her song
I wish to die with my will and spirit intact
The will that inspired me to write these words
Seek not the fallen to unlock these wooden doors

    General CommentThe meaning of the song is quite easy to understand in multiple ways: even when your humanity is fading away, there's a place deep inside you that will protects your wills, your integrity, and help you make it through every difficult moment.
    I just wanted to add that the "wooden doors" are calling again a natural element, the wood, and the whole album rotates around this concept, like it's said in "In The Shadow of Our Pale Companion". Thus, the song reconnets with the opening tracks in multiple ways: the man wants to die with honour and pride preserved.
