I was sittin' in a crummy movie with my hands on my chin
Oh the violence that occurs seems like we never win

Love and mercy that's what you need tonight
So, love and mercy to you and your friends tonight

I was lyin' in my room and the news came on T.V.
A lotta people out there hurtin' and it really scares me

Love and mercy that's what you need tonight
So, love and mercy to you and your friends tonight

I was standin' in a bar and watchin' all the people there
Oh the lonliness in this world well it's just not fair

Oooooo-ooooooo-ooooooo
Oooooo-ooooooo-ooooooo-ooooooo-ooooooo
Ahhhhh-ahhhhhh-ahhhhhh-ohhhhhh-ohhhhhh

Hey love and mercy that's what you need tonight
So, love and mercy to you and your friends tonight

Love and mercy that's what you need tonight
Love and mercy tonight

Love and mercy

    General Commenti first heard this song on the movie ''Orange County''
    since then it has definetly been some awsome ''chill music'' for me.

    General Commentyeah I heard it on orange county too.

    it's a really nice song to listen to when you're just hanging out and want something simple.

    the message is obvious and true. all that stuff is definitley very depressing to see

    General CommentI think this is a commentary on the sad state of affairs that our world is in. And Brian is wishing us all well in this hell-in-a-hand-basket world that we live in.
