"Mystery" as written by and Edward Joel Kowalczyk....
My ammunition won't load into my gun
My inhibitions, they fall like the weight from a stone
You lead my heart away like a homeless, dusted fool
Somehow this dime store ring still shines like a diamond to you

Oh, how it deepens
Oh, how it deepens

Your mystery
Keeps on turnin' me on
Your mystery

Thought I knew the rules, thought I held it in my hand
Thought I was bulletproof till the blood pooled up in the sand
Are you a satellite, a shooting star or a dove?
Did we put you way up there or did God send you down from above?

Oh, how it deepens
Oh, how it deepens

Your mystery
Keeps on turnin' me on
Your mystery
Burns me up like the sun
Your mystery

Mine eyes have seen the glory of a love that does transcend
Mine eyes have seen the worst inside of man
And fear is like a fallen bridge broken from an edge
And the proof is in the bloodshot eyes of the one who failed to see

    General CommentArg! Why did they let their new album out overseas, then a month later in Canada, and then another month later for the US? They came from here! Bakadon....I want to listen to Songs from Black Mountain!

    General CommentI love the lyric "Somehow this dime store ring still shines like a diamond to you." It reminds me of how worthless we are, but God still thinks the world of us...yeah. This whole song seems to be about God's mystery. Ed still doesn't understand, and he is amazed the more he analyzes God's character and such. So that's my take.

    General CommentEyecon ... What can I say. You really need to read more carefully IMHO.
    Anywayz: It's obviously a love song, the character seems to have been "love-proof", not caring about the women next to him:

    "Thought I knew the rules, thought I held it in my hand
    Thought I was bulletproof"

    ... and then boom! He meets this perfect lady and he's hopeless

    "Did we put you way up there or did God send you down from above?"

    he falls in love but he refuses to acknowledge it and turns her down, then after some time he realises his foolishnes

    "And the proof is in the bloodshot eyes of the one who failed to see"

    General CommentUps, no! Now I understand (It's because I'm not native-english I guess) - he failed to see that he is in love, we can't actually say that he turned her down. Sorry!
