Mysteries and Mayhem



Mysteries and Mayhem - Kansas

(Livgren Walsh)


Well I'm trying to tell you about a thing I thought I saw

It came to me in a dream one night

When a voice began to call

I heard my name being summoned as I looked around to see

A hooded judge and jury

There was no mercy there for me


Well I can't make it I just can't figure it out

This dream is drivin' me crazy

I gotta know what it's all about

The mark is upon me and the mark of Cain brings fear

A cold wind's blowin' right down my back


I'm runnin I'm runnin' from a figure that's dressed in black

I think my legs are made out of lead

Cause I'm runnin' but I'm going nowhere

The bad dream is coming closer and closer

I got a feelin' he'll always be there

Forever is a long time to spend in agony

And the demons of confusion have got a place for me

The mark is upon me and the mark of Cain brings fear


I was tired so tired of runnin'

I had to turn and look around

I saw eyes that looked right through me

And a voice that made no sound

My body froze and I stood and stared unearthly face before me


From the depths of a hooded nightmare I saw what could not be


Mysteries and mayhem from the pinnacle I see

There's no answer when there's no question

The mark of Cain bears hard on me
