"Mercy [From the Prayer Cycle]" as written by Alanis Morissette and Jonathan Elias....
We have slaughtered
In the garden of beauty
Digging graves instead of planting
Mercy for the crucified
A bitter justice
Begging eternity for love

We're nothing
We're everything

I am nothing
Yet I am everybody

We're nothing
And yet we are

Wisdom lights up life's road

I know you
