Mercy (Acoustic)

from Echo Echo by IAMX

supported by


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
And you burn and 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 or 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
