This song is about me. I rewrote the verses many times.

Lyrics

The beginning is the best part, it's always easiest to start
I never seem to finish anything
As things become a bigger mess, they tend to get cleaned up less
Money never solves everything
I've got my reasons for the reasons this reason isn't working
Reasons never fix a god damn thing
Another song about reasons, another song about the good fight
Ya know the songs about tomorrow are never right

MERCY, MERCY I'VE HAD ENOUGH
MERCY, MERCY SOMETIMES IT'S A LITTLE TOO MUCH

And the bills are piling up, working overtime to get though it
What's life when we are working seven days
Everything on TV is getting very scary and confusing
I fear that things are never going to change
As we keep on growing out, everybody's somehow different now
But the more we change, the more we stay the same
And we put all of ourselves into something that no one else believes in
All your hero's were amateurs one day

MERCY, MERCY I'VE HAD ENOUGH
MERCY, MERCY IT'S GETTING TO BE TOO MUCH

And our bodies stay in motion, somehow with our hearts all broken
It's something about satellites and gravity
And we all fall down when we loose the people that we lean on
Hospital rooms keep ruining my week
I swear I'm gonna change it all, scream until the walls all open
but I loose my voice every time I speak
I've put everything away, given up my dreams and shut the door
I'm too damn old to be a rockstar anymore

Can't outrun my shadow yet, sympathetic silhouette
broken dreams and mounting debt
I'm sorry to everyone I've met
Alcohol, loosing bets, rapid fire cigarettes
We all have our ways of coping best
Nothing good comes from no regrets

MERCY, MERCY I'VE HAD ENOUGH
MERCY, MERCY IT'S JUST WAY TOO MUCH
