Bad Omens Lyrics


"Mercy"

Blinded by a fear of feeling
These are the kings we chose
Lost and looking for the meaning
I’ve been searching high and low
When we fade into nothing
When we go up in the smoke
We’ll beg God for a mercy
That he knows we’d never show

On a canvas we stained with blood
And painted with our sins
There’s a candle melting
And it’s burning at both ends
We’ll take and take ’til it caves
And drowns us in the wax it drips
Like a moth to a flame
You never should’ve fucking lit

You can give sight to the blind
But you can’t force them to see
You could take us back in time
But it wouldn’t change a thing

If God came down from his kingdom
He came down from his home
And we asked him if he’d take us back
He would surely tell us no
If God came down from his kingdom
He came down from his throne
And we asked him if he’d take us back
He would tell us we can’t go

To a rat in a maze the end is
Where the start begins
But if we made it out I know
That we would do it all again
We live and die in vain
Like treasure on a sinking ship
All in the name of a God
We’d just abandon and forget

If God came down from his kingdom
He came down from his home
And we asked him if he’d take us back
He would surely tell us no
If God came down from his kingdom
He came down from his throne
And we asked him if he’d take us back
He would tell us we can’t go

We’re dying everyday
Tell me is it all in vain
Is it worth the suffering?
Is it worth the price we paid?

Is it worth it?

You can give sight to the blind
But you can’t force them to see
You could take us back in time
But it wouldn’t change a thing

If God came down from his kingdom
He came down from his home
And we asked him if he’d take us back
He would surely tell us no
If God came down from his kingdom
He came down from his throne
And we asked him if he’d take us back
He would tell us we can’t go

Blinded by a fear of feeling
These are the kings we chose
Lost and looking for the meaning
I’ve been searching high and low
When we fade into nothing
When we go up in the smoke
We’ll beg God for a mercy
That he knows we’d never show

You can give sight to the blind
But you can’t force them to see
You could take us back in time
But it wouldn’t change a thing
