Kmfdm — Mercy lyrics

I WENT THRU TOO MANY PEOPLE
I WENT THRU HEAVEN AND HELL
I WENT FROM ROME TO BAGDAD
TOO MANY STORIES TO TELL

I LIVED THRU TOO MANY AEONS
I'VE RISEN UP AND I FELL THE FALL
I HAVE BEEN THERE AND I HAVE DONE THAT
I'VE SEEN IT ALL AND ALL

MY TIME IS RUNNING LIKE WATER
DEEPER I DIVE THE DEEPER
LAST OF NINE LIVES OF THE CAT
I SAVED MY SOULD FOR THE REAPER

WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY THAT
MERCY IS ALL YOU GET
DO WHAT YOU WON'T REGRET
FREEDOM'S YOUR SELF-RESPECT
