I traveled days and nights-- I followed my heart, my conscience, and my inner light... They led me to the house of four doors, a grim hold beyond the green fields, with but one entrance, through a gilded gate. I feared the King might be imprisoned inside.
"Lost in a lost world...," the guard sang. "Some of them are living an illusion, bounded by the darkness of their minds... I'm a melancholy man that's what I am, all the world surrounds me..." I drew closer, afraid to interrupt him. "I'm a very lonely man, doing what I can. All the world astounds me, you look around you, things they astound you..."
Suddenly, he stopped playing and stared at me. He looked perturbed. "I'm sorry to bother you," I said timidly. "I wish to gain passage into the house of four doors." The man guffawed, turned back to his keyboard, and continued to play.
