Mercy (from The Prayer Cycle) lyrics

Alanis Morissette

We have slaughtered
In the garden of beauty
Digging graves instead of planting
Mercy for the crucified
A bitter justice
Begging eternity for love
(the following text and translation from Hungarian by Alanis Morissette)
We´re nothing
We´re everything
I am nothing
Yet I am everybody
Wisdom lights up life´s road
I know you
