"Latimer's Mercy" as written by Ozzy Osbourne and Kevin Gregory Churko....
Another day and another full seizure
Another pill, you spiral down deeper
Another cut by a surgical butcher
It's just a way of prolonging the torture

I won't say I don't know what I'm doing
I won't say that I'm sorry

I can't bring you back but I can't leave you helpless
I'll make the pain rest in peace

I'll turn off the light and
Swallow your last breath
So close your eyes, fall asleep
I'll never hurt you
I'll never hurt you

The sun shines on this deadly new morning
The church bells ring an early warning
Your eyes shine as I turn on the motor
The tears fall as the mercy gets closer

I won't say I don't know what I'm doing
I won't say that I'm sorry

I can't bring you back but I can't leave you helpless
I'll make the pain rest in peace
I'll turn off the light and
Swallow your last breath
So close your eyes, fall asleep
I'll never hurt you

I can't bring you back but I can't leave you helpless
I'll make the pain rest in peace
I'll turn off the light and
Swallow your last breath
So close your eyes, fall asleep
I'll never hurt you

    General CommentCan't see why no one's commented to this yet.. this song simply plays in my mind all day .. the euthanasia question was never an easy one... The song's about a Canadian (Saskatchewan i'd believe) who .. in a sense murdered his 12 year old daughter Tracy. Should you think he didn't love his daughter.. the intro lyrics to this song are absolute correct.. and her condition from birth granted her little to no control of movement at the slightest, and rendered unable to speak.
    'The Shorter Oxford English Dictionary defines euthanasia as “the action of inducing a quiet and easy death.”'
    If you want to understand the song further, quite the amazing one if i may add, search Robert Latimer.. read the story for yourself
