Plan B - Mercy Lyrics

Our dear daddy left us when we was quite young
He said lord have mercy on my daughter and my wicked son
Raised by my friends, guess I'm on the road again
The one he said would lead me to a dark heaven-less end
So lord have mercy on my soul
Lord have mercy I don't know which way to go
Which way to turn oh I don't know
Lord have mercy on my good for nothing soul

My papa weren't no preacher still he spread that word of yours
To make up for all the sinning and rebelling without a cause
Back when he was young way too young to know
The word of God would touch him tell him he's a Rolling Stone
So lord have mercy on his soul
Lord have mercy whichever way that he rolls
Too old to learn
Too dumb to know
Its a sin to turn your back on the oats that you have sown

Lord have mercy
Lord have mercy
Lord have mercy
Lord have mercy

Oh God I love you and I'm grateful for my life
Yes I'm grateful that you blessed me with a daughter and a wife
But I don't believe my daddy when he says I'll burn in hell
Cause I don't go to church live by the stories that he tells
But if I'm wrong and the self righteous one is right
Blame the devil for my lucidness forgive me for my stupidness
Have mercy on my soul
Lord have mercy I don't know which way to go
But I can learn, give me a try
Just please have mercy if I don't before I die

Lord have mercy
Lord have mercy
Lord have mercy
Lord have mercy

Hallelujah, halle-halle-lujah
Big drop in the ocean
Hallelujah, halle-halle-lujah
Following the motion

If I'm mistaken tell me why
If I'm forsaken take away these tears I cry
For the non-believers I hold so dear
Because they helped me in my life when things weren't clear
I thought you sent them but if that aint right
Then lord have mercy on my skewed and wayward mind
I said I thought you sent them to be my guides
Thought the way you works mysterious but if I'm just delirious

Have mercy on my soul
Lord have mercy I don't know which way to go
Lord have mercy on my soul
(Big drop in the ocean)
Lord have mercy I don't know which way to go
(Following the motion)
I said have mercy on my soul
(Big drop in the ocean)
Lord have mercy on my good for nothing soul
(Following the motion)

Lord have mercy…
(Big drop in the ocean)
Lord have mercy
(Following the motion)
Lord have mercy
(Big drop in the ocean)
Lord have mercy
(Following the motion)

On my good for nothing soul
On my good for nothing soul
On my good for nothing soul
On my good for nothing soul

Plan B Mercy Comments
  1. Real_ Demassify

  2. Boasty TheHenchFrog

    Worth the wait..... FUCK YEAH!, Powerhouse of a album. Being in recovery this album hits me man.

  3. Kelly Sami

    The artwork is telling the story. I've seen it so I know it's true! But will all revelations not all sources are real! I do believe in the power of connection. Have mercy on the ones who are asleep! Books are experiences lived by humans, ideologies created by man to enforce control!
    Yet some of these books of revelations are historical happenings as people of that time experiences and perceptions, the sources believed in curse of god ect...not However in actually events caused by galactic disruptions of cyclical natural occurrences.
    The people who have the power of critical thinking.
    Believe in the power of the universe for it holds the secrets to all that is unknown.
    I'm a atheist I do not believe but I believe in what I see and the data that I can study, I guess you would say I embrace science.
    Although I do have a beliefs I a higher power...not however in the traditional sense.
    Love your work!

    Very intersting album ...we have time to make the most of it all!

Yeah if we don't start another revolution soon now, things will not change for the better. We need a revolution brothers and sisters. First I say this is a mustbuy on vinyl, cd or digital buy. Support this beautiful human being, fight the smartphone beings ya'll.

  76. robin friday

    Dreading hearing the new album,this is just a shit kristine w track.

  77. Derek Lerrick

    It's ok to be Agnostic/Atheist, Ben. You don't have to beg for Mercy from a wicked, immoral god.

  78. Speed Garage

    I’ve only just realised this song is about plan B’s father Paul Ballance, Ben Drews Dad played in a punk rock band called the Warm Jets and was apparently religious, Paul Ballance walked out and left plan B’s family when Ben Drew was young.
