Mercy

Daddy, I am so confused, can you tell me please,
Why this dirty, wicked world is bringing me to my knees?
Find something for us to do, take me for a ride.
Saddle up and lose ourselves to the stench of wet rawhide.

  Look at Father Time, he's taken away what's mine,
  Every nickel, every dime. Mercy, mercy, Father Time.

Burn my house down to the ground, watch how I rebuild.
Shake the earth and knock me down, I shall not be killed.
Taint my blood with HIV, watch how I survive.
Send my children down to war, they all come back alive.

  Look at Father Time, he's taken away what's mine,
  Every nickel, every dime. Mercy, mercy, Father Time.

Mama, I am so confused. Won't you let me stay?
Bury my face into your breasts before I face this day.
Fix me something smooth and sweet. Feed me spoon by spoon.
Lay my head back in your lap, lets holler at the moon:

  Look at Father Time, he's taken away what's mine,
  Every nickel, every dime. Mercy, mercy, Father Time.
