Mercy, hallelujah,
we're never coming home
and I know what you're thinking
and I'd rather be alone
sometimes when I'm nervous, I'll call you from my phone
but goddamn, if it kills me, darling
I'd rather be alone

If this is how they planned it
then I can't, no I can't stand it,
how the lies were all we salvaged,
we're screwed

So don't crucify me,
or throw me off the track
'cause just like jesus christ, you know,
I'm never coming back
mercy, hallelujah,
we're never coming home
but I know what you're thinking, father,
I know that you know

That this is how they planned it
and I can't, no I can't stand it,
how the lies were all we salvaged,
we're screwed
when I turn my head to say goodbye
and the walls are whispering their lies
and the truth won't ever come to light,
we're screwed

If this is how they planned it
then I can't, no I can't stand it,
how the lies were all we salvaged,
we're screwed
when I turn my head to say goodbye
and the walls are whispering their lies
and the truth won't ever come to light,
we're screwed
