Secrets

 

Secrets” by The Runaways from The Runaways – The Mercury Albums Anthology

“We speak in codes and no one knows
‘cuz we’re living a double life
Kept inside our love dreams hide
‘cuz we’re living a double life

Secrets
We’ve got dreams
Mysteries
And crazy schemes
Secrets
We’ve got dreams
Secrets
Can’t be seen

Out on the street the shadows meet
‘cuz we’re living a double life
We can tell it fits so well
That we’re living a double life

Secrets
We’ve got dreams
Mysteries
And crazy schemes
Secrets
We’ve got dreams
Secrets
Can’t be seen

Shhh someone’s coming
Shhh be quiet
If we get caught
Just deny it”

“But, in the advanced degree of M.M. the answer is that he comes ‘From the East,’ for by this time the Mason is supposed to have so enlarged his knowledge as to realize that the primal source of life is not in the ‘West,’ not in this world; that existence upon this planet is but a transitory sojourn, spent in search of ‘the genuine secrets,’ the ultimate realities, of life; and that as the spirit of man must return to God who gave it, so he is now returning from this temporary world of ‘substituted secrets’ to the ‘East’ from which he originally came.” [via]

The Deeper Symbolism of Freemasonry from The Meaning of Masonry by Walter Leslie Wilmshurst.

“We know that even the elementary and superficial secrets of the Order must not be communicated to unqualified persons, and the reason for this injunction is not so much because those secrets have any special value, but because that silence is intended to be typical of that which applies to the greater, deeper secrets, some of which, for appropriate reasons, must not be communicated, and some of which indeed are not communicable at all, because they transcend the power of communication.” [via]
