Have mercy baby
I'm descending again
Open your eyes
This time it's sink or it's swim

No sermons on ascending
No verdict on deceit
No selfish memorandum
No confusion for me

[Chorus:]
Curses
Curses and clues
A feast for fools

Have mercy baby
And hand me downs
It was just a few years ago
You'd hand me ups and map
Right out of town

But I would let it slide
Like mercury
Silver and quick
Poisonous and deadly
So deadly

[Chorus]
