If I put my hands around your wrists
would you fight them?
If I put my fingers in your mouth
would you bite them?
So many things that I would do
If I had my way with you

I can't keep secrets and I know how you want me
You can tear your nails into my skin
You won't stop me
You can twist and scream into the air
No one can hear you here

And there will be no tenderness
No tenderness
There will be no tenderness
No tenderness
I will show no mercy for you
You had no mercy for me
The only thing that I ask
Love me mercilessly

All your shining friends that despise you to your face
What would they say now if they saw you in this place?
Naked and breathless, could you live with this disgrace?
Could you live?
Could you live?
Could you live with this?

And there will be no tenderness
No tenderness
There will be no tenderness
No tenderness
I will show no mercy for you
You had no mercy for me
The only thing that I ask
Love me mercilessly

If I put my hands around your wrists
would you fight them?
If I put my fingers in your mouth
would you bite them?
So many things that I would do
If I had my way with you

And there will be no tenderness
No tenderness
There will be no tenderness
No tenderness
I show no mercy for you
You have no mercy for me
The only thing that I ask
Love me mercilessly

Love me mercilessly

    General CommentThis song is DEFINITELY not about rape. This song is about being so angry at somebody for what they've done to you, yet also having an amazing sexual attraction to them. It's about a raw need to just fuck somebody. You know when you have make-up sex and it's super angry and animalistic? Thats what this is except to a higher degree.

    I think this person is writing about being the Dominator in an S&M relationship. In the music video there are a lot of references towards fertility. It's about hating someone so much but still having an animalistic need to want to conquer them. It's about love and anger and passion.

    I always respect musicians and authors with the courage to write to free and with raw honesty. AWESOME song.

    General CommentIts about anger and passion combined and exemplified through an action. Some F***'s are about love, some about forgiveness, some just for fun, and then there's the "merciless" Hate****.

    General CommentI thought rape at first, but the line "the only thing I ask / love me mercilessly" dissuaded me. I feel this is more about seduction out of revenge, a woman that's wronged him in the past ("you had no mercy for me"), and taking out his frustrations on her through some very violent, if consensual, sex. So yeah, even if it's not rape, it's still far from mentally stable.

    All your SHINING friends that despise you to your face
    What would they say now if they saw you in this place?
    NAKED AND BREATHLESS, COULD YOU live with this disgrace?
    Could you live?
    Could you live?
    Could you live with this?
