My church and my country could use a little mercy nowAnd she sounds like she means it.
As they sink into a poisoned pit
That's going to take forever to climb out
They carry the weight of the faithful
Who follow them down
I love my church and country, and they could use some mercy now
Every living thing could use a little mercy now
Only the hand of grace can end the race
Towards another mushroom cloud
People in power, well
They'll do anything to keep their crown
I love life, and life itself could use some mercy now
I heard the tune on Paste Magazine's latest music sampler from the new issue with Bright Eyes on the cover.
