I get stuck sometimes, sand in the soles of my shoes
and the more I try to move, the less I do
and sympathy aside, I ask a wise man why I try
and he smiles towards a door he points to and hey says,

the door’s for you
the door’s for you,
go right on through

the obvious suggestion would be to decipher the message
and to try to find the lesson in the room
but the quicksand keeps me guessing,
so I destroy my sense of presence
with the nearest chemical that I can use

that old temporary fix
I keep on getting stuck on it
I wish that I could climb out of my shoes
yeah that old temporary fix
I try to make the most of it
but what does temporary even do?

how many ways can you go through a door?
how many steps do you have to make?
how much distance is there on the floor?
do you know what it takes?

yeah I got legs and I got feet
I got lists, I got everything I need
except the one thing I call courage,
yeah the one thing I call courage to do,
to do the right thing
