Lyrics

Deep in the night, I can hear you breathing
Long slow pulls, the sleeper sleeping
The moon shines down on your gleaming skin
Love to love you baby, won’t you let love in?

It’s just the sweet hand of mercy

Got one eye open and a lonely whistle
The other eye’s closed but my fingers listen
Hit a nerve, gonna do some drillin’
Close your eyes now, this won’t hurt a bit

It’s just the sweet hand of mercy

Took a drink – man, he’s eatin’ the worm
Rage is still playing – don’t know which way to turn
Spirit is weak and the flesh is willing
Mind’s playing tricks, the effect is thrilling

Study the meaning, every last detail
A sensory trap, got the dog by the tail
The closer we get, the harder we fall
Don’t care anymore, think I heard the call

It’s just the sweet hand of mercy
