"Mercy" as written by and Karl Hyde/rick Smith/alfie Thomas....
Mercy
When I melt in the kiss by the words and the whispers you sing me
Mercy
And I'm frail in the kill by submission and will that you bring me
Mercy
When I'm nothing but ego, you slap me to let go and sleep free
Now I sleep free

You're my toy box
You're my memories
When I smell your skin you just make my whole world weep
I'm at your feet
I'm at your feet

Mercy
When the grey turns to black and the wave's on my back, you make me smile
Mercy
Is the trauma no martyr you crush into pleasure and downtown
Mercy
It's the shining of you that just breaks me in two like a lifeline
You're my lifeline

I'm the idiot to your poetry
When you burn you bleach
Everything and all I need
Is at your feet
Is at your feet

Mercy
Are the licks and the lips of temptation, just tricks, not for playing?
Mercy
Are you the camera suck, gun slut to headphone fuck holes in my being
Mercy
Are you everything which put the sex into bitch, or just faking?
Do you fake it?

So I celebrate your chemistry
If you bond with me
I could make your whole world sweet
I'm on my knees
I'm on my knees

On my knees
On my knees
On my knees
On my knees

    General CommentHere he is very infatuated and obsessed with someone. His whole world revolves around them and they complete him in every sense. There seems to be a hint of doubt with the questioning going on near the end but that doesnt seem to lessen his enthusiasm bcuz he believes they are meant for each other. He is like a lamb to the slaughter lol.

    General CommentThe entire song is so intense. I love the line 'It's the trauma and martyr you crush into pleasure and downtime'.

    General CommentThis has got to be the most romantic song ever written.
    Chris conveys the wonderous feeling and excitement of being love with the undertone of torture it also brings.
