If theres' anyway out of this place, I'm just not sure

I'm pretty sure it's through one of these thousand-doors.

But I still don't know, what it is that I truly want.

But I must know... before I can go.


House of One-Thousand Doors – I'll never know if I've been
this way before. I'll make a wish and see if It'll come
true, but what I really want, I only wish I Knew.

For now I go on, my journey's like a song...


I'll never know the right way out... so many choices,
but my dreams all end in drought...


I'm left alone...wandring' without a home...
So I sleep upon the floor... house of One-Thousand Doors.


House of One-Thousand Doors – I'll never know if I've been
this way before. I'll make a wish and see if It'll come
true, but what I really want, I only wish I Knew.

But now I go on, following my song...



I'm so confused, my mind's collapsing now, I must
escape this place somehow... But I've built this
place inside my head, the knowledge within is never
dead... my minds the floor...

House of One-Thousand Doors...

The author's comments:
Well, If anyone knows the Neverending Story, you'll know that the House of One-Thousand Doors is a place. It's a place of decisions, which we all come to at some point in our lives. In a way, this is the place this poem is about.
