Justice and Mercy Lyrics

by Flyleaf

We can't be oblivious, we are not ignorant
Blood in our hearts and blood on our hands
We're human, we reason, we're breathing
Protecting the living and dying, surviving
We're trying to breathe in safety, come home safely

Mercy screams its violent love
Justice and mercy, justice and mercy
The depth of us created for
Justice and mercy, justice and mercy
This is where they kiss

Life here sacrificed, someone who paid the price
Blood in our hearts and blood on our hands
We cry out, we're fighting, it's warfare, we're dying
Believing we're winning, it's ending, we're singing
It's already done, we've overcome

Mercy screams its violent love
Justice and mercy, justice and mercy
The depth of us created for
Justice and mercy, justice and mercy
This is where they kiss

With a life on the line of fire
That consumes or refines the fire
To ascent or decline, to retreat or to climb
Out of sight, out of mind 'til attacked from behind
Will this fire resume or refine?

Mercy screams its violent love
Justice and mercy, justice and mercy
The depth of us created for
Justice and mercy, justice and mercy
This is where they kiss
