May not solve a mystery
This is a fairly abstract line, but from what we know, the song being about doubt of religion, you could infer that the “mystery” he is referring to, is that of whether God is real or not, and whether there is an afterlife or whether it is a myth. He is saying we may very well never know whether God is truly real or not. The only people that do know are dead.
