Mother of Mercy - Iron Maiden

Sitting, waiting in the falling rain.
Getting ready to begin again.
Wounded, lying, crying.

Bodies moving, dying.
All around there is the smell of death and fire.

Here the planes are coming.
Hear the soldiers running.
Killing on a scale to comprehend.
Why are we here?
In this place... here to kill.

Please, God, forgive us for what we have done.

I always thought I was doing right.
As of now, I'm not feeling so sure.
I'm at a place of where
I give no grace.
I'm a soldier of war.

I sit waiting for my darkest hour to come.
I cannot think of all the things that I have done.
It shouldn't take a fool to see that I believe.

Accept the consequence.
Repent for what I've done.
You tell me what is certain
But I'll tell you what is true.
You tell me what is honesty
When all around is death and cruelty.

The making of a man is fire.
Not giving in to our desires
Within the truth that lies
Within the only thing.

Mother of Mercy.
Angel of death, desire.
Mother of Mercy
Taking my last breath of fire.
Mother of Mercy.
Angel of pain.
Mother of Mercy
Taking my last breath.

Some say you are a lost cause.
Some say you're a Saint.
Just being here's an act of suffering and restraint.
Walk down the long dark road to ruin, panic not.
I'll die a lonely death, of that i'm certain of.

Rivers flow with blood there's nowhere left to hide.
It's hard to comprehend there's anyone left alive.
Sick of all the killing and the reek of death.
Will God tell me what religion is to man?

I don't hold with bad religion
Understand what's underneath it.
Now I come to think of it
I just don't hold at all, you know it.
You say you are a holy man
But what is it you do?
From where I stand is nothing but a hollow man I see.

Mother of Mercy.
Angel of death, desire.
Mother of Mercy
Taking my last breath of fire.
Mother of Mercy.
Angel of pain.
Mother of Mercy
Taking my last breath.

Mother of Mercy.
Angel of death, desire.
Mother of Mercy
Taking my last breath of fire.
Mother of Mercy.
Angel of pain.
Mother of Mercy
Taking my last breath.

I'm just a lonely soldier
Fighting in a bloody hopeless war.
Don't know what I'm fighting
Who it is, or what I'm fighting for.
Thought it was for money
Make my fortune, now I'm not so sure.
Seem to just have lost my way.
