The Chamber Of 32 Doors

Lyrics

At the top of the stairs he finds a chamber. It is almost a hemisphere with a great many doors all the way round its circumference. There is a large crowd, huddled in various groups.

Comments

Only track completely written by Gabe on The Lamb. Little bit of useless trivia.
These are really profound lyrics. Think of them in the context of reincarnatio n , and finding the door that doesn't lead back again is like achieving Nirvana.
