This is a mercy mission
From a faceless messenger who don't want to see you hit
Here's the word, listen to it
Somebody that you used to know is back in town
You better go

This is a mercy mission
A voice you'll never hear again from a southside call box
Winged demons are the hardest to outfox
The same one you lost on the run
Gonna show you that it ain't no fun

You better get out of town you're gonna get hit
I didn't mean to get you...

This is a mercy mission
You'll find your schedule underneath the door
All of the arrangements have been made
Major expenses have been paid as you know
Don't forget the last details
Accept no parcels in the mail

    General CommentIn her appearance on "VH1 Storytellers", Chrissie Hynde explains at… that "I knew these degenerate... bikers, and they had dumped on this friend of mine, this girl... one of them said to me that he was going to send an ear through the post to her. This song is me, calling her, warning her to, you know, stay away."
