Mercy Me - Melissa Etheridge

Well I have lived ten years plus ten 

And ten and ten again 
I have seen too much to pretend 
And then you wanted to come in 
I have survived all of the lies 
They made me wise 
The locks and walls and the peace it buys 
Still when I look into your eyes 
It's a surprise when you say 

It's gonna be alright 
It's gonna be okay 
Just hold on tight 
let it all go away 

What do you want from me 
Mercy, mercy baby 
What do you want from me 

well I plead Mercy, mercy baby 
I do not know what this all means 
It's been awhile 
Since I've been stylin' in 
Just my jacket and my jeans 

It hurts to walk 
It hurts to talk 
It hurts to think about it 
Shout about it 
Could I be sure without a doubt 
That you could never live without 

It's gonna be alright 
It's gonna be okay 
Just hold on tight 
let it all go away 
Mercy baby 
What do you want from me 
Mercy, mercy, mercy baby 
What do you want from me 

It's gonna be alright 
It's gonna be okay 
Just hold on tight 
let it all go away 
I want to fall in you 
Crawl in you 
Surrender 
All in you now 

Could I be sure in you 
Pure in you 
Finding the cure in you 
Now I plead 
Have mercy on me 

Now I am kneeling at the altar 
In the temple of your eyes 
And I am asking for a miracle 
I have been too long paralyzed when you say 

Get up 
Stand up 
Climb the rope of hope 
and open up again 

All the peace you say is promised me 
seems too much to comprehend 

It's gonna be alright 
It's gonna be okay 
Just hold on tight 
let it all go away 
Mercy baby 
What do you want from me 
Mercy, mercy baby 
what Can this girl believe 

It's gonna be alright 
It's gonna be okay 
Honey just hold on tight 
And I'll make it all go away 
Hold on 

It's gonna be alright 
Mercy darling 
Mercy 
Let it all go away

Riding through the Black Hills, Southbound
Came upon this old ghost town
Sure looked eerie by the light of the old full moon
I was weary I got down
Thought I’d have myself a look around
Through some swinging doors came a half haunted tune
And the broken down sign read ‘The Black Hat Saloon’

Walked right through them swingin’ doors
Something like I’d never seen before
Looked like a scene from 100 years ago
A scarlet lady strode to my side
Said she’d take me on a mystic ride
All night long we danced around the moon
But the sun woke me up to an empty dusty room
With a broken down sign that read ‘The Black Hat Saloon’

Black Hat Saloon, come on and sing to me a melody
Telling me all about what a good life it used to be
Sing to me of the days of the silver and the gold
When the music and the laughter
From the whiskey warms your soul
Now it’s all grown cold

Every picture has its shadows
And it has some source of light
Blindness, blindness and sight
The perils of benefactors
The blessings of parasites
Blindness, blindness and sight
Threatened by all things
Devil of cruelty
Drawn to all things
Devil of delight
Mythical devil of the ever-present laws
Governing blindness, blindness and sight
Suntans in reservation dining rooms
Pale miners in their lantern rays
Night, night and day
Hostage smile on presidents
Freedom scribbled in the subway
It's like night, night and day
Threatened by all things
God of cruelty
Drawn to all things
God of delight
Mythical god of the everlasting laws
Governing day, day and night
Critics of all expression
Judges in black and white
Saying it's
Critics of all expression
Judges in black and white
Saying it's wrong, saying it's right
Compelled by prescribed standards
Or some ideals we fight
For wrong, wrong and right
Threatened by all things
Man of cruelty-mark of Cain
Drawn to all things
Man of delight-born again, born again
Man of the laws, the ever-broken laws
Governing wrong, wrong and right
Governing wrong, wrong and right
Wrong and right

Mm ba ba de
Um bum ba de
Um bu bu bum da de
Pressure pushing down on me
Pressing down on you no man ask for
Under pressure that brings a building down
Splits a family in two
Puts people on streets
Um ba ba be
Um ba ba be
De day da
Ee day da - that's okay
It's the terror of knowing
What the world is about
Watching some good friends
Screaming 'Let me out'
Pray tomorrow gets me higher
Pressure on people people on streets
Day day de mm hm
Da da da ba ba
Okay
Chippin' around - kick my brains around the floor
These are the days it never rains but it pours
Ee do ba be
Ee da ba ba ba
Um bo bo
Be lap
People on streets - ee da de da de
People on streets - ee da de da de da de da
It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends
Screaming 'Let me out'
Pray tomorrow - gets me higher higher high
Pressure on people people on streets
Turned away from it all like a blind man
Sat on a fence but it don't work
Keep coming up with love but it's so slashed and torn
Why - why - why?
Love love love love love
Insanity laughs under pressure we're breaking
Can't we give ourselves one more chance
Why can't we give love that one more chance
Why can't we give love give love give love give love
Give love give love give love give love give love
'Cause love's such an old fashioned word
And love dares you to care for
The people on the (People on streets) edge of the night
And loves (People on streets) dares you to change our way of
Caring about ourselves
This is our last dance
This is our last dance
This is ourselves
Under pressure

Who is the man who arrives at the wall?
Making the shape of his questions at asking.
Thinking the sun will fall in the evening.
Will he remember the lesson of giving?
Set the controls for the heart of the sun.

Okay, all right, oh no
This one, this one, this one

Heads of state who ride and wrangle
Who look at your face from more than one angle
Can cut you from their bloated budgets
Like sharpened knives through chicken McNuggets

Now, heads of state who ride and wrangle
Who look at your face from more than one angle
Can cut you from their bloated budgets
Like sharpened knives through chicken McNuggets

(Shut the fuck)
Up
Yo, shut the fuck up
(Shut the fuck)
Right, right, learn to buck up

I’m gonna let it be the field
The one that rain forgot
I’m gonna let it be the summer
I’m gonna let it be your face
The one that ran away
I’m gonna let it be forever

I’m gonna let it rain and hail
Gonna let the rusty nail
No longer hold this world together
I’m gonna let it be the sun
In more ways than one
Shine a different way tomorrow
Shine a different way tomorrow

I’m gonna let it be the moon
Let it play the tune
The one that keeps repeating
I’m gonna let it be your will
Let it have your thrill
If that’s what you are needing

I’m gonna let it start again
Gonna let it chase the wind
With my arms stretched out before me
I’m gonna let it look at me
As I am sleeping in the dark
And love me like a baby

I’m gonna let it be the sun
In more ways than one
Run out of its horizon
I’m gonna let it be the night
For I have had my day
Dancing at the back door

I’m gonna let it hear the prayer
No matter who is there
No matter who is listening
I’m gonna let the dream tell me
What it has always known
The moonlight and the glistening
The moonlight and the glistening
The moonlight and the glistening waves

Or, in light of today's pronouncement, to Paris.

To France - Mike Oldfield

Taking on water, sailing a restless sea

From a memory, a fantasy
The wind carries into white water
Far from the islands
Don't you know you're...

Never going to get to France
Mary Queen of Chance will they find you
Never going to get to France
Could a new romance ever bind you

Walking on foreign ground like a shadow
Roaming in far off territory
Over your shoulder stories unfold
You're searching for sanctuary
You know you're...

Never going to get to France
Mary Queen of Chance will they find you
Never going to get to France
Could a new romance ever bind you

I see a picture
By the lamp's flicker
Isn't it strange how
Dreams fade and shimmer

Never going to get to France
Mary Queen of Chance will they find you
Never going to get to France
Could a new romance ever bind you

I see a picture
By the lamp's flicker
Isn't it strange how
Dreams fade and shimmer

Never going to get to France
Mary Queen of Chance will they find you
Never going to get to France
Could a new romance ever bind you

Never going to get to France
Never going to...

Uranium money
Is booming in the old home town now
It's putting up sleek concrete
Tearing the old landmarks down now
Paving over brave little parks
Ripping off Indian land again
How long how long
Short sighted business men
Ah nothing lasts for long
Nothing lasts for long
Nothing lasts for long

I was slipping through the cracks of a stolen jewel
I was tightrope walking in two ton shoes
Now somebody is talking about a third world war
And the police said this was normal control (I've been caught in a mind riot)

Candle's burning yesterday
Somebody's best friend died
And I've been caught in a mind riot (mind riot)

I was crying from my eye teeth and bleeding from my soul
And I sharpened my wits on a dead man's skull
I built an elevator from his bones
Had climb to the top floor just to stamp out the coals (I've been caught in a mind riot)

Candle's burning yesterday
Somebody's best friend died
I've been caught in a mind riot

I'm tied within

Candle's burning yesterday
Like somebody's best friend died
I've been caught in a mind riot

I'm tied within
I'm luck's last match struck
In the pouring down wind, pouring down wind

So if you're walking down the street sometime
And spot some hollow ancient eyes,
Please don't just pass 'em by and stare
As if you didn't care, say, "Hello in there, hello."+

Darkness at the break of noon
Shadows even the silver spoon
The handmade blade, the child’s balloon
Eclipses both the sun and moon
To understand you know too soon
There is no sense in trying Pointed threats, they bluff with scorn
Suicide remarks are torn
From the fool’s gold mouthpiece the hollow horn
Plays wasted words, proves to warn
That he not busy being born is busy dying Temptation’s page flies out the door
You follow, find yourself at war
Watch waterfalls of pity roar
You feel to moan but unlike before
You discover that you’d just be one more
Person crying So don’t fear if you hear
A foreign sound to your ear
It’s alright, Ma, I’m only sighing As some warn victory, some downfall
Private reasons great or small
Can be seen in the eyes of those that call
To make all that should be killed to crawl
While others say don’t hate nothing at all
Except hatred Disillusioned words like bullets bark
As human gods aim for their mark
Make everything from toy guns that spark
To flesh-colored Christs that glow in the dark
It’s easy to see without looking too far
That not much is really sacred While preachers preach of evil fates
Teachers teach that knowledge waits
Can lead to hundred-dollar plates
Goodness hides behind its gates
But even the president of the United States
Sometimes must have to stand naked An’ though the rules of the road have been lodged
It’s only people’s games that you got to dodge
And it’s alright, Ma, I can make it Advertising signs they con
You into thinking you’re the one
That can do what’s never been done
That can win what’s never been won
Meantime life outside goes on
All around you You lose yourself, you reappear
You suddenly find you got nothing to fear
Alone you stand with nobody near
When a trembling distant voice, unclear
Startles your sleeping ears to hear
That somebody thinks they really found you A question in your nerves is lit
Yet you know there is no answer fit
To satisfy, insure you not to quit
To keep it in your mind and not forget
That it is not he or she or them or it
That you belong to Although the masters make the rules
For the wise men and the fools
I got nothing, Ma, to live up to For them that must obey authority
That they do not respect in any degree
Who despise their jobs, their destinies
Speak jealously of them that are free
Cultivate their flowers to be
Nothing more than something they invest in While some on principles baptized
To strict party platform ties
Social clubs in drag disguise
Outsiders they can freely criticize
Tell nothing except who to idolize
And then say God bless him While one who sings with his tongue on fire
Gargles in the rat race choir
Bent out of shape from society’s pliers
Cares not to come up any higher
But rather get you down in the hole
That he’s in But I mean no harm nor put fault
On anyone that lives in a vault
But it’s alright, Ma, if I can’t please him Old lady judges watch people in pairs
Limited in sex, they dare
To push fake morals, insult and stare
While money doesn’t talk, it swears
Obscenity, who really cares
Propaganda, all is phony While them that defend what they cannot see
With a killer’s pride, security
It blows the minds most bitterly
For them that think death’s honesty
Won’t fall upon them naturally
Life sometimes must get lonely My eyes collide head-on with stuffed
Graveyards, false gods, I scuff
At pettiness which plays so rough
Walk upside-down inside handcuffs
Kick my legs to crash it off
Say okay, I have had enough, what else can you show me? And if my thought-dreams could be seen
They’d probably put my head in a guillotine
But it’s alright, Ma, it’s life, and life only
