"See I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it" John the Revelator
“If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear as it is - infinite” William Blake
Open Door, the new title track by the Wild Rovers, written by Martin, was inspired, in part, by this famous quote that Jim Morrison so often sited from the Doors.
The song's heart centers on the power of redemption and its impact to cleanse our perceptions and lives. So many of us are tied down by anchors that keep us from truly living. Open Door explores the awkward tension of leaving behind what held us down while pursuing, even yearning for the opportunities that God opens up to us.
