TREY: [during Latin-esque groove at end of "McGrupp"] Once upon a time there was a man called Colonel Forbin, and he was a retired army colonel living in twentieth-century suburbia. One day he found himself shaving in his bathroom, and he was looking into the mirror and thinking about his life. Fifty-two years old and what had he done with his life? Basically nothing. He sat and he looked in the mirror with his dog McGrupp standing next to him, and he thought about the door. The door was a door that he had found recently when walking McGrupp. He was coming over this hill and he saw it, and he didn't believe that it really existed at first. But, he spent weeks walking past the same spot every day. He’d see the door, and he'd wonder about it. Until this one day, he was shaving in his bathroom, and he realized that he was sick of his life and that the time had come to go through the door. So, he took his dog and he walked out onto the street, and he headed up the hill and he headed towards the door.

[Following the end of the narration the song smoothly moves into “The Lizards.” Trey returns to the narration after it concludes. ]
