Lyrics

Wasting Time

Written By: Mercy

V1:

I was breaking my bones
I was in search of a home
Thought I'd found a place in you
I really thought you knew

So I followed you around
And I followed my gut
So much, so what
It doesn't matter now

CHORUS:

My heart is always two paces behind / as a general rule / or so I'm inclined / and I didn't know what you had in mind / but you were never a friend of mine / you were always just wasting my time

V2:

I was phased for a while
And I had faith in your smile
It's no use to try
to try to read between the lies

So I flew over the road
in the shivering cold
songs on the radio orchestrate my mode

(chorus)

(int)
why you do what you do
why I followed you
why we do what we do
questions with more questions with more questions and it's no use

(chorus)

why you do what you do
why I used to love you
why we do what we do
questions with more questions with more questions and it's no use

Round Here

Written By: Mercy

V1:

What a wonderful world it would be
If everyone was just like you and me
'cuz we all have got all our sh*t together round here
and that's perfectly clear
do you see what I mean?
do you see what I mean?

in my world we have equal rights
and you can have them all if you are straight and you are white
oh yes I said it
that's right

(CHORUS):
The world goes round
because everyone's ok
as far as I can tell
and that's good enough for me
the world goes round in my little world right here
it's sunny and it's clear as far as I can see
and that's okay, said that's okay, yes that's okay with me

V2:

In my world we separate our church and state
except for slogans on our money
and electoral campaigns
and all the laws we pass
and all the wars we wage
because God is on our side
He's such a fan of homicide

and I'm okay with God
because He's okay with me
He always agrees with me
no matter what I say or do
and we don't worry about things like AIDS
because you know it only happens to the blacks and to the gays
oh yes I said it
okay

(CHORUS)

v3:
In my world no one could be starving
because we've got more than our fill
so we just keep on stock piling for the day
when the world's a little lighter
yes, we're all a little lighter
guess we'd better start resuming
start resuming
keep consuming
keep consuming
keep consuming
keep consuming
keep consuming
keep consuming until it's all gone
what went wrong?

(CHORUS)

What a wonderful world it would be
if everyone was just like you and me
cuz we all have got all our sh*t together round here
and that's perfectly clear
do you see what I mean
do you see what I mean
do you see what I mean
do you see what I mean
