Mercy on judgment, Lord
Mercy on judgment, Lord
Mercy on judgment, Lord
Ohh, along that day, sad day

Downpressor man, where you gonna run to?
Tell me, downpressor man, where you gonna run to?
Downpressor man, where you gonna run to?
Ohh, along that day, along that day

You run to the rocks, rocks will be melting, man
When you run to the rocks, the rocks will be melting, so run
When you run to the rocks, rocks will be melting
Ohh, along that day, sad day for you

Ohh, when you gonna run to the sea, the sea will be boiling
When you run to the sea, the sea will be boiling
Run to the sea, the sea will be boiling
Ohh, along that day, that day

So, you gonna run to the Lord, ohh, what you hidin'
Run to the Lord, Lord, what you hidin'?
Run to the Lord, Lord, what you hidin'?
Ohh, along that day, sad day for you, man

Mercy on judgment, Lord
Mercy on judgment, Lord
I said, mercy on judgment, Lord
Ohh, along that day

I wouldn't like to be a plea, in your color, man
Wouldn't like to be a plea, in your color, man
I wouldn't like to be a plea, in your color, man
Ohh, along that day

You get a run but the being's high
