Ray Davies – The Mystery Room lyrics
It's the middle of the night
And I look in the mirror
Hey man, what do ya' see?
Hear the sound of the train by the river
Cryin' out "follow me"
And the four walls knock me out of bed
Run down the street, rain on my head

Since I was a kid, always wanted to see
Now I'm faced with mortality
Yeah, I feel a greeting
Yeah, my heart's still beating
Now there's no retreating
Comin' into the mystery room

Yeah, my brain's in a free-fall
My body's in free-fall
[inaudible] inside of me is coming down on my head
Short circuited, crosswire
Up on the highwire
Hear them play that honky tonk tune
As you walk through that Mystery Room
Yeah, can you feel the gloom?
Let's stand in the Mystery Room

Yeah, [inaudible] face of fear
Live in denial, 'til we all get out of here
Medication in the hope it might disappear
If you can't see it, ya' can't feel it

Meanwhile they're playin' my tune
It's rainin' out there, but in here there's two
Big black cars, covered in [inaudible]
That's why I hide in my Mystery Room
Don't judge me
It's a moment too soon
Can't ya' hear it in the crowds [inaudible]
'Cause I'm here in my Mystery Room

Come and join us
We're here in the Mystery Room

Come and join us
We're here in the Mystery Room

Yeah, hear the greeting
Yeah, my heart's still beating
Now there's no retreating
Turn in to the Mystery Room
