I'm picking up the pieces
Putting them back together
Trying to make'em fit
Everybody is telling me why I ought to quit

I'm not listening

I'm tired of waiting
And hesitating
Cause I've thought it through
Everybody is still looking for that missing clue

It's a mystery to me
It's a mystery to me
It's ancient history repeating

I'm touchimg all the lampshades
Counting all the columns
On every bridge I cross
It's just something that I do to keep from gettin' lost

It's a mystery to me
It's a mystery to me
It's ancient history repeating

All I need is a little guidance
To help me open up their eyes
And if you help me to solve this mystery
We'll cut through all these stupid lies

I'm picking up the pieces that crumbled through my fingers
What a nasty mess
It's an exact science and not a lucky guess

It's a mystery to me
It's a mystery to me
It's ancient history repeating

It's a mystery to me
