"Mercy Killing" as written by and Gilbert Alexander/laird-clowes Gabriel....
I believe in love to the power of ten
I don't believe retaliation strikes can make amends
I believe
I believe again

I cut down the flags on the wooden ship
Sail stateless
Keep the faith in protest
Against the wind

But when I look in your eyes
I don't see anything
I see a love that died
Cut down in a mercy killing
Looking for mercy
Looking for mercy
Found it in my arms
Don't look so sad
Looking for mercy

I believe in starting out again
I don't believe imaginary love can ever win
I want to believe again

I receive the lies that I can't resist
Idolise
'This machine kills fascists'
Specialised and refined
In heart breaks relined
I'm a mercy killer

But when I look in your eyes
I don't' see anything
Now I've seen a love that died
Cut down in a mercy killing
Looking for mercy
Looking for mercy
Found it in my arms
Woh oh oh oh
Looking for mercy
{Mercy on me
Can't live the creed}

And if I run am I free
If I look back will I see
I'm killing again
Mercy killing
And the very thing I do to you
Will be done to me
Looking for mercy
Looking for mercy (looking for mercy)
I don't see anything
Now I see a love that died
Cut down in a mercy killing
Looking for mercy
Looking for mercy (looking for mercy)
Found it in my arms
Don't look so sad
Looking for mercy
Don't look, don't look so sad
Don't look, don't look so
Don't look, don't look so sad
Looking for mercy
Don't look, don't look so sad
Don't look, don't look so
Don't look, don't look so sad
Cut down in a mercy killing
Don't look, don't look so sad
Don't look, don't look so
Don't look, don't look so sad
Looking for mercy
(fade...)
