Tried to make it with my heart
tried again with the doing time
told again and then I troubled
walked the crooked tooth of crime
rolled them balls till I hit double
weighed the salt inside my tears
but they only accept mercy here

How many times must I fall
upon a swollen appetite
to be so humbled by a call
to amen, by the emptiness of might

It can leave a body cold
down here below the frozen light
just to leave a life unfold
burn the flag and leave the fight
relieve my body of its plunder
to be with what I hold so dear
but they only accept mercy here

How many times must I fall
upon a swollen appetite
to be so humbled by a call
to amen, by the emptiness of might

It can leave a body cold
down here below the frozen light
just to leave a life unfold
burn the flag and leave the fight

tried to make it with my mind
pitted will against my fear
a desperation undressed
a shot gun rang from far and near

tried to make it with you
and the luck of all our years
but they only accept mercy here
