Lacy golden promises
you made while I was young
Later briars and brambles
set me on the run

Just the sound in the dust
Dry boots led me on
to the place where unknown serpents
curled and fled the dawn

Ah, mystery, oh mystery
why do you treat me so,
to raise another devil
and with the devil go?

Down with your false rebellion,
shaking through the trees
from wooden horse to hellion
to bring us to our knees

Red wind burning full tonight,
says you love us so
You have caused the time to pass,
you're even in the snow

Ah, mystery, oh mystery
how can you treat me so,
raise another devil
and with the devil go,
with the devil go?

I've been sorting out a plan
to leave you far behind
I'm certain that the cause of it
isn't always kind

You're a blank for filling in
I give you nothing more
Mystery in the shadows
standing by the door

Ah, mystery, oh mystery
how can you treat me so,
to raise another devil
and with the devil go,
with the devil go?
