These are the stories I've kept in hiding
songs I've buried deep within
it happens only on a soft slip of drunken influence
that they've even been spoken
And that somewhere is a place for strangers
those above and those below
when you've failed with flying colors
somewhere is the place you go

It began with mercy and mercy is how it will end
it began with mercy when mercy calls
we all know who's answering

well me I never made me any family
except these couple songs I wrote
and I long for every number that I played when I was younger
as I sing this ransom note for note
I sing about my good friends drifting
and where did all the good times go
every word is dug up from a coffin
every line reanimated for the sideshow


There is danger at the end of the story
there is madness at the end of it all
if you want someone to know for certain
let them answer mercy's call
when the band starts it's final number
once upon a broken promised land
in an ever ending story
for a brief moment of glory
we remember where it all began
it began with mercy
