Music written, produced and performed by Chris Corner ’Mercy’ released on the IAMX album ‘Kiss and Swallow’ July 13, 2004 ----------------------------------- Lyrics:
Mercy – well I melt in the kiss by the words and the whispers you sing me Mercy – I’m frail in the kill by submission and will that you bring me Mercy – when I’m nothing but ego you slap me to let go and sleep free Now I sleep free
You’re my toybox and my memories When I smell your skin you just make my whole world weep I’m at your feet
Mercy – when the grey turns to black and the wave’s on my back you make me smile Mercy – it’s the trauma and martyr you crush into pleasure and downtime Mercy – it’s the shining of you that just breaks me in two like a lifeline You’re my lifeline
I’m the idiot to your poetry When you burn you bleach everything and all I need Is at your feet
Mercy – are the licks and the lips of temptation just tricks not for playing? Mercy – are you the camera suck gun slut to headphone fuck holes in my being? Mercy – are you everything which put the sex into bitch just faking? Do you fake it?
So I celebrate your chemistry If you bond with me I could make your whole world sweet I’m on my knees
