Mercy

You live for times of solace
Within a sign there's a promise
Don't lose all faith 'cause you shake at night
It's in the art of the process

In another rhyme beyond this place
The healing's fast enough
Done a thousand times, a thousand ways
Until you've had enough

It's mercy you're asking for, cheating life by taking more
It's mercy you're asking for, take my life or give me more

The loss of prize possessions
To cure the mind's obsessions
Could trade your soul for that normal life
Elite to all objections

See beyond all tears and broken years
Your senses giving up
Lose all confidence at your expense
Your courage swallowed up

It's mercy you're asking for, cheating life by taking more
It's mercy you're asking for, take my life or give me more
