My heart's getting bigger
So I need a new pant size
When you're the tower of strength
People climb up your backside

So you don't stay that way too long
You're only temporarily strong

I've got mercy, mercy to go
I've got mercy, mercy to go
And then it's all gone

You don't swim up and grab a drowning man
'Cause he'll use you as a life raft if he can
It's better to hold a out a branch
Then the tree and then the whole ranch

'Cause I've got mercy, mercy to go
I've got mercy, mercy to go
I've got mercy, mercy to go
And then it's all gone

As I mature I learn to speak my mind
On the other hand I learn to be patient and let it ride
Between these two traits is a line
You step on it all of the time

Why do these things always happen to you?
I wish I had the time to let them swallow me too
When we count up all of our wounds
You're the desert, I'm one of the dunes

I never met a manipulator that wasn't paranoid
They see in themselves what in others they should avoid
All the devious plans aren't there
Ghosts fly out from under their hair

And I get to hear about it
And it comes in heavy waves
And I'm lying under your downer
With no breathing space

And I've still got mercy, mercy to go
And when it's all gone, I guess it's all gone
