The Mercy Beat


by The. Buy album CD: Other Songs A - Y


There's a high wind blowin' and the stars are shining bright
Oh what a night, this is gonna be, I think I'll let the world sleep without me
I got one eye open, one eye closed and my thin body's trembling beneath the bedclothes
My hearts beatin' against the roof of my mouth, it's almost time to get out of this house

I got one hand on the radio, one hand on the wheel
I got my right foot on the floorboard and I'm preparing to kill or be killed
There's a high wind blowin' and the stars are shining bright
And the rain upon the tarmac helps me sail through the traffic lights
I'm heading down to the dock of the bay to feel the power of the waves
I'm gonna move up close to that wind and wrestle with the thoughts solitude always brings

Ye see I'm stuck between hell and the deep blue sea
And I know that water's sucked under better man than me
I was just another western guy with desires that couldn't be satisfied
One day, I asked the angels for inspiration
But the devil bought me a drink and he's been buying them ever since
He's had the liquor on my tongue, feel like the sea upon the sand
He's had me signing confessions from this shaking hand
He's had me struggling to hang onto hope like a drunken sailor in a tugboat
With a bottle of vodka in my overcoat and my dog eared bible lost overboard

Ye see he tricked me into temptation so I've tricked him into this confrontation
I never said I was the man I appeared to be
Not the flesh wrapped around the bones of necessity
Or the soul on fire scribbling thoughts for posterity
I'm gonna have little Lucifer, runnin' off to purgatory with his tail between his legs
I'm gonna teach him a lesson he ain't ever gonna forget
All the vultures and crows are fixin' up some tombstones
But they won't be chewing the meat off my bones
There's a high wind blowin' and the stars are shining bright
Me and him are gonna have a little knife fight in the bowels of the big city skyline
Oh this feelin' inside runs dark and deep, tonight my hearts not thumping a mercy beat

I was just another western guy with desires that can't be satisfied

What a night, this is gonna be, the world can sleep without me
What a night, this is gonna be, the world can sleep without me
What a night, this is gonna be, the world can sleep without me

I can't sleep me
