i couldn't wait for the mysteries to be revealed
I didn't know why the women kept their mouths concealed
i never guess that the tears were always laughed at most
i never saw what was written there across her face

do you think you'd out-suss me?
did you think you never trust me?
did you ask me or just me
and the more you try
the darker the eyes shining

i couldn't wait for the sickness to be diagnosed
i didn't know why outer doors were always closed
i never guessed that the residents had had a choice
i never heard what you whispered underneath your voice

did you think you'd outgrown me?
did you think you'd never known me?
you can ask her to owe me
and the more you try
the darker her eyes shining

i couldn't wait for the outcome of the great affair
i didn't know what the audience was doing there
i never guessed we were mummers in an ancient play
i never learned all the lives that i was meant to save

do you think you excite me?
do you think you don't like me?
you are burning to fight me
and the more you try
the darker the eyes shining.

    General CommentThanks for adding! I sure wish Mr. Saloman would issue lyrics officially.

    My guesses:
    First Verse: Third line I believe is "I never guessed that the tears were always laughter based."
    First Chorus: "Do you think you have sussed me? Could it be you don't trust me? You cannot readjust me, and the more you try, the darker I shine"
    Second Chorus: "Do you think you've outgrown me? Could it be you've never known me? You cannot hope to own me, and the more you try, the darker I shine"
    Third Verse: Last line should be "I never learned all the lines that I was meant to say"
    Third Chorus: "Do you think you excite me? Could it be you don't like me? You are burning to fight me, and the more you try, the darker I shine."

    Cheers,
