Song Meaning
Verse 1
Well, you praise him, then you thank him
Until you reach the by-and-by
And I've won hundreds at the track
But I'm not betting on the afterlife
Then you kiss his lips; he forgives you for it
He forgives you for all you've done
But not me, I'm still angry
Verse 2
What have I done?
Why am I always messing with
The big guns?
Verse 3
First, I'll build a sword, get some words to explain
It's a plan, brother, at least
And I'll pretend that everybody here wants peace
Have mercy, have mercy
Have mercy on me
Because we're tired and lonely, and we're bloody
Verse 4
What have we done?
Why are we still running from our own failing bodies?
The big guns
The big guns
Verse 5
Sing mercy, sing mercy
Sing mercy on me
Let's pretend that everybody here wants peace
Verse 6
What have we done?
Why are we still chasing our own tails, and running
From the big guns?
The big guns
The big guns
