Mercy Town

MERCY TOWN

I’m going down to Mercy Town
Going to have myself a look around, oh yeah
I’m going where the sun shines bright
And everybody’s soul is filled with light, oh yeah

And there’s no need for struggle, no need for tears
No need for irrational fears
No need to worry about what’s coming round...
In Mercy Town

I’m going down to Mercy Town
Where music is the only sound
I’m going where the dogs run free
And time stands still and waits for you and me, oh yeah

And there’s no need for hunger, no need for pills
No injustice and no ill will
No need to worry about what’s coming down...
In Mercy Town

I’m going down to Mercy Town
Bought my ticket, that’s where I’m bound, Mercy Town
I’m going where the flowers bloom
And peoples’ spirits soar up to the moon

And there’s no need for stealing from the poor
No need for greed, cheating or senseless war
No need to worry ‘bout what going down…
In Mercy Town

I’m going down to Mercy Town
Going to take a stroll around, lie down on the ground in Mercy Town
I’m going where the sun shines bright
And everybody’s soul is filled with light, oh yeah
