Cry for Mercy

Trapped in a world you did not create

Bound up by chains you can never break

What did you do to deserve this fate

Well, you were born


Welcome to the world as it is

Just ask big brother what’s mine is his

Don’t try to change it think you’ll rearrange it

Just get on your knees and you might just make it


Try to cry for mercy, sob and beg and plead

But what was once controversy

Is all the proof you need


With time served justice is farce

From the smallest spark the fire burns hot

Guillotines blade falls on the mark

But what it is now and what it was then

We couldn’t believe we wouldn’t stand still

And now what it’s become

Runs the fast lane to hell

(lyrics- The Swill) circa mid-1990s
