Gary Numan – Mercy lyrics
[Verse 1]
I know
I should have told you
Be careful what you wish for
I know who you are
So I'll remind you
How you came to be here

[Verse 2]
You won't
Remember my pain
Your 'Politics of Screaming'
You won't know my name
Or my forgiveness
Mercy's overrated

No mercy
No mercy

How long did I suffer for you here?
For a lifetime
And how long have I waited for you here?
So patiently

[Verse 3]
I see
You understand now
Nothing ever leaves here
We are quite alone
But if you pray hard
Maybe God can save you

No mercy
No mercy
No mercy
No mercy
