My heart's getting bigger so I need a new pant size
When you're the towere of strength people climb up your backside
So you don't stay that way too long
You're only temporarily strong
I've got mercy, mercy to go
I've got mercy, mercy to go
I've got mercy, mercy to go
& then it's all gone
You don't swim up and grab a drowning man
'cause he'll use you as a life raft if he can
It's better to hold out a branch
Then the tree, and then the whole ranch
'cause I've got mercy, mercy to go
I've got mercy, mercy to go
I've got mercy, mercy to go
& then it's all gone
As I mature I learn to speak my mind
On the other hand
I learn to be patient & let it rider
Between these two traits is a line
You step on it all of the time
Why do these things always happen to you?
I wish I had the time to let them swallow me too
When we count up all of our wounds
You're the desert, I'm one of the dunes
I never met a manipulator that wasn't paranoid
They see in themselves what in others they should avoid
All the devious plans aren't there
Ghosts fly out from under their hair
And I get to hear about it, and it comes in heavy waves
And I'm lying under your downer, with no breathing space
And I've still got mercy, mercy to go
And when it's all gone
I guess it's all gone
