Heathen – Mercy Is No Virtue lyrics

[Altus/Piercy/White]

Rip the pages from the book of lies
Never will we ever fall to compromise
Now we're back to set the record straight
Fueled by anger, our pain has turned to hate

Symptoms of stagnation are coming to an end
Solitude's frustration has been our only friend
Now we must break free.

Mercy is no virtue when the mercyful is betrayed
There must be some kind of justice before it's too late

Right at you straight between the eyes
This relentless attack will be no disguise
Things have been said that just are not true
Hear what I say when I say this to you

Symptoms of stagnation are coming to an end
Solitude's frustration has been our only friend
Now we must break free.

Mercy is no virtue, that's what the merciless say
When justice is lost, the system fails, and all we do is pay

Take a look around, 'cause the band is back in town
And vengeance and revenge is what they seek
If you see them coming you better step aside
Because now they'll show no mercy
You can see it in their eyes

Because mercy is no virtue
