"Mercy" lyrics

Mercy

Simplicity
Does not come easy
When you're dreaming
Of being someone else
And grace you see
Is fleeting
When you're bleeding
Your innerself

Have mercy on me please
Have mercy
I'm on my knees
I'm being broken
Again and again
I'll keep being broken
Until I remain
Open

When you're locked away
Fighting shadows
Constant battles
Trying to feel safe
When your own armor
Starts killing you
Cause it's causing you
To sink beneath its weight

Call for mercy
Won't you please
Call for mercy
Get on your knees
You're being broken
Again and again
You'll keep being broken
Until you remain
Open

So feel the pain
Give into it
Cry till you crack
That's how the light gets in
Set your weapons on the ground
Until you're naked and trembling now
And when you think you can't stand any more

Give mercy
To someone in need
Give mercy
Don't you see
Life will break our hearts
Again and again
We'll keep being broken
Until we remain
Open

Can't you see
I have broken
Wide open
Let yourself be broken
Wide open
I have broken
Open
