lyrics

We are weak, fallible
Fragile little things
Condemnations get thrown around
Way to easily

Gotta have mercy on your kin
Mercy on your enemy
Gotta have mercy on your best friend
When he says somethin you know he didn’t mean

We are held accountable
For everything we do or say
Ain’t no getting around it
It’s just the price of liberty

Can’t undo what you did
Pardon don’t mean shit
Can’t unsay what you said
But we ain’t gonna crucify you for it

We are frightened, paralyzed
By mistakes we’ve yet to make
Takes courage just to raise your hand
Courage from the moment you wake

Everybody’s scared
I swear it ain’t just you
Gotta have mercy on your fellow man
Cause lord knows you need it too
Gotta have mercy on your kin
Mercy on your enemy
Gotta have mercy on your best friend
When he says somethin you know he didn’t mean
