lyrics

Paperback pony rides
and animal cut outs
Birds in mosaics, with lies in their feathers
and paper mache river trouts

Black and blue skin
Against red and tan bruises
The palest of roses
Against bloody cut coffins

An ocean of tears
Holding wishes afloat
A sailor of death, stuck in his boat
With nowhere to go

Ribbons of skin
That make up the people
Puddles of colour that fill in the world
Flowing in and outside of the lines
In and outside of the lines

Here on Mercy Street
We take our chances, and no one ever dies
We drink the dirt; we smoke the clouds
Here on Mercy Street

Stone faces carved on the street
To keep the sadness from lonely feet
We make hats, we make scarves
But never sell shoes, so our faces can have friends too

Paper plate voices shout from their cancer clubs
Reeling you in with their false promises

Splashes of ink
That outline the boundaries
Sugary hues tuck the sun into bed
Shading in and outside of the lines
In and outside of the lines

Here on Mercy Street
Where the beat quickens and no one ever cries
We praise the herds
We curse the wolves
Here on Mercy Street

Here on Mercy Street
Here on Mercy Street
