Track Name: Mercy of the Seas
Standing on a makeshift dock
Young men deciding how my family will be split up
They argue with us over money
Say things about my daughters
How to lie with they'd pay "good currency"
Into the craft we scramble and clamber
Scramble and clamber into this craft
It's like a life raft and it's glorified at that
It'sso flimsy and fragiile I had to ask
Will this withstand the pummel of the waves
Or will we be at the Mercy of the Seas

Mercy of the Seas
Mercy Mercy

The kids were being ground down
In the dustbowl, sinkhole rubble-ridden towns
I think about those who died on the roads
Or sunk beneath the surface and never rose
Some are praying as a last resort
The wood on which they sit
In silent protest rots
Can't see the shoreline
There's nothing in the sightlines
They said we'd see villages on the port side

We're going down
Down, Down, Down, Down, Down

We're going down
Down, Down, Down, Down, Down

We're going down
Down, Down, Down, Down, Down
