Mercury - Act 1 Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

My Life

Can I wish on a star for another life?
'Cause it feels like I'm all on my own tonight
And I find myself in pieces
There are pills on the table and a thought in my head
And I walk through the halls where I used to be led
My heart is filled with reasons

I'm tryin' to be somebody else
I'm findin' it hard to love myself
I've wanted to be somebody new
But that is impossible to do

I'm runnin' out of my mind
Is this really my life?
I'm runnin' out of time
Is this really my life? My life

I could run from it all but I'd only get lost
Oh, I've walked on the bridge that I shouldn't have crossed
And I find myself, a user
Oh, I wake every day with addictions to feed
They all call me a friend but I'll never be freed
From the face of a faithless future

I'm tryin' to be somebody else
I'm findin' it hard to love myself
I've wanted to be somebody new
But that is impossible to do

I'm runnin' out of my mind
Is this really my life?
I'm runnin' out of time
Is this really my life? My life

These years pass by and we're growin' older
And I think of you, all we've made it through
Some have passed away, some have moved on
But I'm still here today (I'm here today)

These years pass by and I'm growin' older
And I think of you, and all we've made it through
Some have passed away, there's no words to say
No second tries, is this my life?
And I think of you

I'm runnin' out of my mind
Is this really my life?
I'm runnin' out of time
Is this really my life? My life

Lonely

Sometimes, I can get a little
I can get a little lonely
Sometimes, I can get a little
I can get a little lonely

Some nights I get a little lonely
It's even when there's people all around me
Sometimes I get a little anxious
'Cause these pills don't work the way the doctor played it
I'm startin' to spin, needles and pins
Right on the brim, hand on a limb, takin' it in
Sleep it away, life in a day, and day in a life
Mixin' it up, checkin' it twice

Tryin' to breathe, startin' to seize
Lights camera action and scene
Story of my life

Oh, love (sometimes, I can get a little)
Have mercy (I can get a little lonely)
On me (sometimes, I can get a little)
And keep me company (I can get a little lonely)
I said, "Oh, love" (sometimes, I can get a little)
Have mercy (I can get a little lonely)
On me (sometimes, I can get a little)
And keep me company (I can get a little lonely)
I said

Sometimes I smile to keep things easy
I hide in corners, hope that no one sees me
So I'm playin' a role, ridin' the boat, stuck in a hole
Taking a bow, lookin' so proud
Look at me now talkin' about pills in my mouth
Under the tongue, isn't it fun?

Tryin' to breathe, startin' to seize
Lights camera action and scene
Story of my life, oh

Oh, love (sometimes, I can get a little)
Have mercy (I can get a little lonely)
On me (sometimes, I can get a little)
And keep me company (I can get a little lonely)
I said, "Oh, love" (sometimes, I can get a little)
Have mercy (I can get a little lonely)
On me (sometimes, I can get a little)
And keep me company (I can get a little lonely)

I said, "Oh, love" (keep me company, I said, I need the company)
(I said, I need the company) have mercy
(I said, oh love)
Oh, love, can you please have mercy on me?
(Keep me company, I said, I need the company)
(I said, I need the company) can you keep me company?
(I said)
Oh love, any help
Why am I so lonely?

Oh, love (sometimes, I can get a little)
Have mercy (I can get a little lonely)
On me (sometimes, I can get a little)
And keep me company (I can get a little lonely)
I said, "Oh, love" (sometimes, I can get a little)
Have mercy (I can get a little lonely)
On me (sometimes, I can get a little)
And keep me company (I can get a little lonely)
I said, "Oh l-"

Wrecked

Days pass by and my eyes stay dry and I think that I'm okay
'Til I find myself in conversation fading away
The way you smile, the way you walk
The time you took to teach me all that you had taught
Tell me, how am I supposed to move on?

These days I'm becoming everything that I hate
Wishing you were around, but now it's too late
My mind is a place that I can't escape your ghost
Sometimes I wish that I could wish it all away
One more rainy day without you
Sometimes I wish that I could see you one more day
One more rainy day

Oh, I'm a wreck without you here
Yeah, I'm a wreck since you've been gone
I've tried to put this all behind me
I think I was wrecked all along
Yeah, I'm a wreck

They say that the time will heal and the pain will go away
But everything, it reminds me of you and it comes in waves
Way you laugh and your shoulders shook
The time you took to teach me all that you had taught
Tell me, how am I supposed to move on?

These days I'm becoming everything that I hate
Wishing you were around, but now it's too late
My mind is a place that I can't escape your ghost
Sometimes I wish that I could wish it all away
One more rainy day without you
Sometimes I wish that I could see you one more day
One more rainy day

Oh, I'm a wreck without you here
Yeah, I'm a wreck since you've been gone
I've tried to put this all behind me
I think I was wrecked all along

These days when I'm on the brink of the edge
I remember the words that you said
"Remember the life you led"
You'd say, "Oh, suck it all up, don't get stuck in the mud
Thinking of things that you should have done"
I'll see you again, my loved one

I'll see you again, my loved one
Yeah, I'm a wreck
I'll see you again, my loved one

Yeah, I'm a wreck without you here (I'm a wreck without you here, loved one)
Yeah, I'm a wreck since you been gone (I'm a wreck since you've been gone)
I've tried to put this all behind me
I think I was wrecked all along (I'm a wreck)
Yeah, I'm a wreck

Sometimes I wish that I could wish it all away (but I can't)
One more rainy day without you (one more rainy day)
Sometimes I wish that I could see you one more day (but I can't)
One more rainy day

Monday

When you're down on your luck
I take the reigns, baby, turn it up
When you're faced to the floor
I turn the dial, turn it up, more
I'm there for you
Will you be there for me, too? Ooh

I believe (I believe) in a god (in a god)
I'm pound-for-pound, baby, turn it on
A million calls will never be, I never get enough of you
I never get enough of you

You are my Monday, you're the best day of the week
So underrated and a brand new start
Don't care what all the kids say
You've got the key to my heart
Ooh

When you call (when you call) on the phone (on the phone)
I never let you hear the dial tone
I believe (I believe) in your touch (in your touch)
I know I can be a little much
I'm there for you
Will you be there for me too? Ooh

You are my Monday (you are my Monday)
You're the best day of the week (best day of the week)
So underrated (so underrated)
And a brand new start (brand new start)
Don't care what all the kids say
You've got the key to my heart
Ooh

You can be the one that I've been waiting all my life for
You could be the key to lead me up into the highest rung
Give me loving, keep me going 'til the midnight hour
Bring me up, lift me up to your rainbow top
Your rainbow top

My Monday, do-do-do
Do-do-do, do-do-do
Monday, my, my Monday
My Monday
My Monday, do-do-do
Do-do-do, do-do-do

#1

Could someone take me home where I'm supposed to be?
I'm on my back again, caught up in something
Could someone take me home? I could use a friendly face
Yeah, these leeches got to go
Yeah, I need a safe space

When am I gonna learn I've got to let things go?
Watching my candle burn, burn

'Cause I know what I'm meant to be
I don't need no one to believe
When it's all been said and done
I'm still my number one
'Cause I know what I'm meant to be
These people might not see
When it's all been said and done
I'm still my number one

Yeah, number one, two, three
You've let me down again, why am I surprised?
I'm on my back again, walking in the wind
I know how these things go (Oh)

When am I gonna learn I've got to let things go?
Watching my candle burn, burn

'Cause I know what I'm meant to be
I don't need no one to believe
When it's all been said and done
I'm still my number one
'Cause I know what I'm meant to be
These people might not see
When it's all been said and done
I'm still my number one

Still my number one as all these years go by
Still my number one, I'm still my number-

What do you take me, what do you take me for?
What do you take me for?
Doo, doo-doo-doo, doo
What do you take me, what do you take me for?
Yeah, I've been here through it all
Yeah, I'm still here

'Cause I know what I'm meant to be
I don't need no one to believe
When it's all been said and done
I'm still my number one
'Cause I know what I'm meant to be
And these people might not see
When it's all been said and done
I'm still my number one
I know what I'm meant to be (I know)
I don't need no one to believe (Yeah, I know)
When it's all been said and done (When it's all)
I'm still my number one (I know)
'Cause I know what I'm meant to be (I know)
These people might not see (I know)
When it's all been said and done
I'm still my number one

I'm still my number one
I'm still my number one

Easy Come Easy Go

All my friends are gone, I don't blame them
I guess I'll move on, do the same thing
So I wrote a song to be my lullaby
Sing me to sleep at night, open my third eye

I'm not gon' lie to you, I miss you so much
Tell me what I did wrong to lose touch?
I'm not gon' lie to you, this has been a hard year
How I wish that you were here

I just need to let it go, waitin' on a miracle
Guess that's just the way it goes, easy come, easy go
I just need to let it go, turn it down and lay low
It's just the way it goes, easy come, easy go

Sometimes I drive a little too fast
Think I'm runnin' from demons of my past
So I wrote a song to help me slow down
Keep my mind straight, but it's a bit late

I'm not gon' lie to you, I miss you so much
Tell me what I did wrong to lose touch?
I'm not gon' lie to you, this has been a hard year
How I wish that you were here

I just need to let it go, waitin' on a miracle
Guess that's just the way it goes, easy come, easy go
I just need to let it go, turn it down and lay low
It's just the way it goes, easy come, easy go
I just need to let it go (I just need to let it go)
Waitin' on a miracle (waitin' on a miracle)
Guess that's just the way it goes (guess that's just the way it goes)
Easy come, easy go
I just need to let it go (I just need to let it go)
Turn it down, and lay low (lay low)
It's just the way it goes (it's just the way it goes)
Easy come, easy go

Remember when you got sick, cancer of the bone
Everyone at school while you sittin' at home
In your wheelchair of grief, find no relief
We were there for the ups and downs and there for the constant rounds of chemo
Yeah, you know that you are our hero
You were there when I was a zero
And I swear I'll make things right before the long night
Swear I'll make things right tomorrow
But as for tonight

I just need to let it go (I just need to let it go)
Waitin' on a miracle (waitin' on a miracle)
Guess that's just the way it goes (guess that's just the way it goes)
Easy come, easy go
I just need to let it go (I just need to let it go)
Turn it down, and lay low (lay low)
It's just the way it goes (it's just the way it goes)
Easy come, easy go
I just need to let it go (I just need to let it go)
Waitin' on a miracle (waitin' on a miracle)
Guess that's just the way it goes (guess that's just the way it goes)
Easy come, easy go
I just need to let it go (I just need to let it go)
Turn it down, and lay low (lay low)
It's just the way it goes (it's just the way it goes)
Easy come, easy go
I just need to let it go (I just need to let it go)
Waitin' on a miracle (waitin' on a miracle)
Guess that's just the way it goes (guess that's just the way it goes)
Easy come, easy go
I just need to let it go (I just need to let it go)
Turn it down, and lay low (lay low)
It's just the way it goes (it's just the way it goes)
Easy come, easy go

Giants

You take a hit of anything
To escape it all or suffocating
The sharpen bladin'
Reality, sometimes it wanna hurt me
I know it's hard to hear but I'm
I'm waitin' for the new year
Don't wanna waste my life chasin' wild
Tryna swim towards the light

Comin' up for air in the deepest of the deep ends
I thought I learned it all, but boom, the plot thickens
Sleepin' with giants, I'm tip-toein' quietly
Feelin' all of this sobriety
(La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la) got so tired of feelin' low
(La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la) but take a look what I did now
Sleepin' with giants, I'm tip-toein' quietly
Feelin' all of the sobriety

Wanna make you proud of me
But slowly I'm killing me
Playing with chemistry
Floating to the ceiling
Always rocking boat 'til you die, you know, you been flyin'
Now I'm shaking your knife, sweating the sheets out
Grinding my teeth out but still the world will glamorize it all

Comin' up for air in the deepest of the deep ends
I thought I learned it all, but boom, the plot thickens
Sleepin' with giants, I'm tip-toein' quietly
Feelin' all of this sobriety
(La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la) got so tired of feelin' low
(La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la) but take a look what I did now
Sleepin' with giants, I'm tip-toein' quietly
Feelin' all of the sobriety

If I could leave one thing for you
It's exactly what not to do
I'm so proud of you

Take a look what I did now
And take a look what I

Comin' up for air in the deepest of the deep ends
I thought I learned it all, but boom, the plot thickens
Sleepin' with giants, I'm tip-toein' quietly
Feelin' all of this sobriety
(La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la) got so tired of feelin' low
(La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la) but take a look what I did now
Sleepin' with giants, I'm tip-toein' quietly
Feelin' all of the sobriety

It's Ok

She could always hear every word they say
Everybody walks like they just know the way
Every single day, holdin' back the tears
She'd never say a word 'cause there's nobody that hears

It's okay to be not okay
It's just fine to be out of your mind
Breathe in deep, just a day at a time (ooh, ooh)
'Cause it's okay to be out of your mind, mind

Mine is broken, how is yours?
Sure it helps to hear the news and political discourse
Fear, that is what he felt
Every single day, 'cause all the boys would play
Don't you dare be weak, emasculated freak
Last up on the fence, tell me where's the sense?

It's okay to be not okay
It's just fine to be out of your mind
Breathe in deep, just a day at a time (ooh, ooh)
'Cause it's okay to be out of your mind

I don't want this body, I don't want this voice
I don't wanna be here but I guess I have no choice
Just let me live my truth, that's all I wanna do
Baby, you're not broken, just a little bit confused

It's okay to be not okay (I need you here with me)
It's just fine to be out of your mind (I can't do it all alone)
Breathe in deep, just a day at a time (just a day at a time)
'Cause it's okay to be out of your mind (it's okay, out of your mind)
It's okay to be not okay (I need you here with me)
It's just fine to be out of your mind (I can't do it all alone)
Breathe in deep, just a day at a time (just a day at a time)
'Cause it's okay to be out of your mind (it's okay, out of your mind)
(Ga-da, la-la, la-la, la-la, la)

Da, da, da, da-da
Da, da, da, da-da
Da, da, da, da-da
Da, da, da, da-da
Da, da, da, da-da
Da, da, da, da-da

Da, da, da, da-da-da

Dull Knives

I'm holding my breath, holding so tight
Nothing is wrong, nothing is right
I'm in the dark, looking for light
Won't someone please save my life?
Inside I'm a mess, but I don't let it show
I'm just hanging on, but you'll never know
I smile all day, and cry through the night
Won't someone please save my life?

It's fleeting

Dull knives
Taking my life
A slow burn fire
From the inside
Dull knives
Twisting my spine
They're taking their time, time
'Til I lose my mind

A smoldering flame, deep in my heart
Barely a sign, it's barely a spark
Holding on through, every night
Won't someone please save my life?
I'm crying for help, it's such a cliche
Invisible pain, it's filling each day
I open my mouth and feed you a lie
Won't someone please save my life?

It's fleeting
No repeating

Dull knives
Taking my life
A slow burn fire
From the inside
Dull knives
Twisting my spine
They're taking their time, time
'Til I lose my mind

Dull knives
Ripping from the inside
Spare me the ride

From the inside
Dull knives
Twisting my spine
They're taking their time, time
'Til I lose my mind
Dull knives

Follow You

You know I got your number, number all night
I'm always on your team, I got your back alright
Taking those, taking those losses if it treats you right
I want to put you into the spotlight
If the world would only know what you've been holding back
Heart attacks every night
Oh, you know it's not right

I will follow you way down wherever you may go
I'll follow you way down to your deepest low
I'll always be around wherever life takes you
You know I'll follow you

Call you up, you've been cryin', cryin' all night
You're only disappointed in yourself, alright
Taking those, taking those losses if it treats you right
I wanna take you into the sunlight
If the world would only know what you've been holding back
Heart attacks every night
Oh, you know it's not right

I will follow you way down wherever you may go
I'll follow you way down to your deepest low
I'll always be around wherever life takes you
You know I'll follow you
Ba-da-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da-da
Ba-da-da-da-da
You know I'll follow you
La-da-da-da-da
Wherever life takes you, you know I'll follow you

You're not the type to give herself enough love
She live her life, hand in a tight glove
I wish that I could fix it, I could fix it for you
But instead I'll be right here comin' through
(Right here, comin' through)

I will follow you way down wherever you may go
I'll follow you way down to your deepest low
I'll always be around wherever life takes you
You know I'll follow you
Ba-da-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da-da
Ba-da-da-da-da
You know I'll follow you
La-da-da-da-da
Wherever life takes you, you know I'll follow you

Cutthroat

I've been waiting patiently
I built this tower quietly
And when my well of Wellbutrin is
Running dry of serotonin
I can say things I don't mean
Or maybe it's the truth in me
I feel it building, bubbling up
My t-t-time is up

I'm so (mis-) misunderstood, (-un) but I live for this (-der)
My money's good (-stood), and I came to win
(Mis-) so step on up (-un), and I promise you

Only one of us gon' make it out alive and it's not you
(Cutthroat)
Only one of us
Only one of us gon' make it out alive and it's not you
(Cutthroat)
Only one of us
Only one of us gon' make it out alive

I've been making my Gethsemane
Since I was young my ancestry
Was marching martyrdom across the
Ra-da-da-da-da-da, plains of Utah
I can't lie, I've been played
By powerful people who get their way
But I in time will climb my mountain
I in time will rise

I'm so (mis-) misunderstood, (-un) but I live for this (-der)
My money's good (-stood), and I came to win
(Mis-) so step on up (-un), and I promise you
Only one of us gon' make it out alive and it's not you
(Cutthroat)
Only one of us
Only one of us gon' make it out alive and it's not you
(Cutthroat)
Only one of us
Only one of us gon' make it out alive

Try me
Try me (ra-da-da-da-da-da)
Cutthroat

Only one of us
Only one of us
Not you (cutthroat)
Only one of us
Only one of us
Only one of us

(Get on the knee, get on the knee, get on the knee)
(Get on the knee, get on the knee, get on the knee)
(Get on the knee, get on the knee)

Cutthroat (get on the knee)
Cutthroat (get on the knee, get, get, get)
Cutthroat (get, get, get, get, get, get, get)
Cutthroat

One Day

I know that one day I'll be that one
Thing that makes you happy
I know I'll keep you laughin'
Your sun on a cloudy day
The feel of a perfect wave
It's crashin' upon your face
Yeah, I know that one day, one day

Birds outside will sing me a song tonight
I know that it's right on time, time
Twee-da-da-da
Life flies by the moon and the midnight sky
Is guiding me to your side, side

I know that one day I'll be that one
Thing that makes you happy
I know I'll keep you laughin'
Your sun on a cloudy day
The feel of a perfect wave
It's crashin' upon your face
Yeah, I know that one day, one day

Can we run away to a place
That children play in the grassy fields
Twee-da-da-da
I know they're tellin' you things that you put in your head, head
Promise that you are better off without them

I know that one day I'll be that one
Thing that makes you happy
I know I'll keep you laughin'
Your sun on a cloudy day
The feel of a perfect wave
It's crashin' upon your face
Yeah, I know that one day, one day

One day I'll be that one (one, one, one)
Thing that makes you happy
I know I'll keep you laughin'
Your sun on a cloudy day (one, one, one)
The feel of a perfect way
If it's crashin' upon your face
Yeah, I know that one day, one day

Ooh
One day
Ooh
One day
