You come out at night That's when the energy comes
And the dark side's light And the vampires roam
You strut your rasta wear
And your suicide poem
And a cross from a faith that died Before Jesus came
You're building a mystery 
You live in a church Where you sleep with voodoo dolls
And you won't give up the search For the ghosts in the halls You wear sandals in the snow
And a smile that won't wash away
Can you look out the window Without your shadow getting in the way?

You're so beautiful With an edge and charm But so careful When I'm in your arms

'Cause you're working Building a mystery Holding on and holding it in
Yeah you're working Building a mystery And choosing so carefully 
You woke up screaming aloud
A prayer from your secret god
You feed off our fears And hold back your tears, oh
Give us a tantrum And a know it all grin
Just when we need one
When the evening's thin

You're a beautiful A beautiful fucked up man
You're setting up your Razor wire shrine 
'Cause you're working Building a mystery Holding on and holding it in
Yeah you're working Building a mystery And choosing so carefully 
Oh, you're working, Building a mystery Holding on and holding it in
Yeah you're working Building a mystery And choosing so carefully Yeah, you're working, Building a mystery, Holding on and holding it in,
Oh yeah you're working, Building a mystery And choosing so carefully 
You're building a mystery.
