Shining Through The Door

Album: Oddities, Abnormalities, & Curiosities (1995)
  • Never mind how I got all that money
    Money doesn't buy me peace of mind
    Never mind that I can't find a reason
    Reason doesn't ease these troubled times

    In this life of degradation
    When nothing seems to be worth living for
    Truth will come bringing salvation
    And that light will come down shining through the door

    Every time I try to find a purpose
    Purpose seems to turn to disarray
    Every time I try to find a meaning
    Meaning wants to just slip away

    In this life of degradation
    When nothing seems to be worth living for
    Truth will come bringing salvation
    And that light will come down shining through the door
    The door... shining through the door
    The door... shining through the door

    Sometimes it's sad
    Sometimes it's funny
    We have the power to elevate ourselves
    So I guess we have to keep on going
    As dust keeps building layers on our shelves
    We have the power to elevate ourselves

    Never mind how I got all of that money
    Money doesn't buy me peace of mind
    Never mind that I can't find a reason
    Reason doesn't ease these troubled times

    In this life of degradation
    When nothing seems to be worth living for
    Truth will come bringing salvation
    And that light will come down shining through the door
    Shining through the door
    Through the door
    Shining through the door
    Shining through the door
    Shining [x5]
    Keep on shining through the door Writer/s: ALEXANDER SCHLOSS, JOHN DENNY
