12. Mystery

by Shawn McDonald


What will cause a man / To climb the highest mountain in search for more / And what
will cause a man / To swim the vast blue sea in search for more / What will cause a man / To soar
through the clouds in search for more / Yes, what is he looking for // Now Iím sailing on the sea of
mystery / And Iím floating on the ocean of unknown / And Iím not going to come ashore until I find what
Iím looking for / Iím not coming back Ďtil I find love // What will cause a man / To wage the wildest
storms in search for more / What will cause a man / To explore the darkest jungles in search of more
/ What will cause a man / To fly to the moon in search for more / Yes, what is he looking for

Behind the Song:
"This was almost the title track to the record; I though about calling the album Sailing in the Sea of Mystery. I wrote this song one day when I was living in Seattle. Iíd go down to Alki Beach on a regular basis to a certain spot, just to clear my head. Iíd go out sometimes when the weather wasnít nice, when it wasnít so crowded, and hang out at the Starbucks or some other place and do a lot of reading. Iím a heavy reader; itís one of the ways I inspire myself and stay fresh. One day I was mulling over the idea of the mystery of God. Some Christians think itís scary to claim God as mystery, because sometimes we want to have all the right answers. We want to be able to say, ďI know this, this and this. God is this, and God is that.Ē But we canít put God into a box; we donít have Him all figured out. God is beyond what our minds can fathom. If we knew all the answers, if God wasnít a mystery, why would we even search for Him? Iím all right with the fact that God doesnít make sense to me, because that means Heís God and Heís beyond me." - Shawn
