Mercy Seat

Höfundur lags: Nick Cave Höfundur texta: Nick Cave Flytjandi: Johnny Cash Sent inn af: elmara
It ALL began when they come took me from my home
And put me on Death Row,
a crime for which I am totally innocent, you know.

I [Am]began to warm and [E]chill
To [Am]objects and their [E]fields,
A [Am]ragged cup, a twisted [E]mop  
The [Am]face of Jesus in my [E]soup
[Am]Those sinister dinner [E]deals
[Am]The meal trolley's wicked [E]wheels
A [Am]hooked bone rising from my [E]food
[Am]All things either good or un[E]good.

[Am]And the mercy seat is waiting
[Amaj7]And I think my head is burning
[Am7]And in a way I'm yearning
To be [G]done with all this weighing of the [Gm]truth.

An eye for an eye
And a tooth for a [Bb]tooth
And anyway I told the [Fmaj7]truth      
And I'm not afraid to [Am]die.   

[Am]    [E]    [Am]    [E]    
[Am]I hear stories from the chamber
[Amaj7]Christ was born into a manger
[Am7]And like some ragged stranger
He [G]died upon the cross. Might I [Gm]say,   
it seems so fitting in its [Bb]way   
He was a carpenter by [Fmaj7]trade      
Or at least that's what I'm [Am]told   

[Am]    [E]    [Am]    [E]    
[Am]My kill-hand's tatooed [E]E.V.I.L.
[Am]across it's brother's [E]fist
[Am]That filthy [E]five!
[Am]They did nothing to challenge or re[E]sist.
[Am]In Heaven His throne is made of [Amaj7]gold      
The ark of his Testament is [Am7]stowed

A throne from which I'm told
All [G]history does unfold.
[Gm]It's made of wood and wire
And my [Bb]body is on fire
[Fmaj7]And God is [Am]never far away.

[Am]Into the mercy seat I [Amaj7]climb      
My head is shaved, my head is [Am7]wired    

And like a moth that tries
To [G]enter the bright eye
I go [Gm]shuffling out of life
Just to [Bb]hide in death awhile
[Fmaj7]And anyway I never [Am]lied.

[Am]And the mercy seat is waiting
[Amaj7]And I think my head is burning
[Am7]And in a way I'm yearning
To be [G]done with all this weighing of [Gm]the truth.

An eye for an eye
And a tooth for a [Bb]tooth
And anyway I told the [Fmaj7]truth      
And I'm not afraid to [Am]die.   

[Am]And the mercy seat is burning
[Amaj7]And I think my head is glowing
[Am7]And in a way I'm hoping
To be [G]done with all this twisting of the [Gm]truth.

An eye for an eye
And a tooth for a [Bb]tooth
And anyway there was no [Fmaj7]proof      
And I'm not afraid to [Am]die.   

[Am]And the mercy seat is glowing
[Amaj7]And I think my head is smoking
[Am7]And in a way I'm hoping
To be [G]done with all these looks of [Gm]disbelief.

A life for a life
And a truth for a [Bb]truth
And I've got nothing left to [Fmaj7]lose      
And I'm not afraid to [Am]die.   

[Am]And the mercy seat is smoking
[Amaj7]And I think my head is melting
[Am7]And in a way that's helping
To be [G]done with all this twisting of the [Gm]truth

An eye for an eye
And a tooth for a [Bb]tooth
And anyway I told the [Fmaj7]truth      
But I'm afraid I told a [Am]lie   

It ALL began when they come took me from my home
And put me on Death Row,
a crime for which I am totally innocent, you know.

I began to warm and chill
To objects and their fields,
A ragged cup, a twisted mop
The face of Jesus in my soup
Those sinister dinner deals
The meal trolley's wicked wheels
A hooked bone rising from my food
All things either good or ungood.

And the mercy seat is waiting
And I think my head is burning
And in a way I'm yearning
To be done with all this weighing of the truth.

An eye for an eye
And a tooth for a tooth
And anyway I told the truth
And I'm not afraid to die.


I hear stories from the chamber
Christ was born into a manger
And like some ragged stranger
He died upon the cross. Might I say,
it seems so fitting in its way
He was a carpenter by trade
Or at least that's what I'm told


My kill-hand's tatooed E.V.I.L.
across it's brother's fist
That filthy five!
They did nothing to challenge or resist.
In Heaven His throne is made of gold
The ark of his Testament is stowed

A throne from which I'm told
All history does unfold.
It's made of wood and wire
And my body is on fire
And God is never far away.

Into the mercy seat I climb
My head is shaved, my head is wired

And like a moth that tries
To enter the bright eye
I go shuffling out of life
Just to hide in death awhile
And anyway I never lied.

And the mercy seat is waiting
And I think my head is burning
And in a way I'm yearning
To be done with all this weighing of the truth.

An eye for an eye
And a tooth for a tooth
And anyway I told the truth
And I'm not afraid to die.

And the mercy seat is burning
And I think my head is glowing
And in a way I'm hoping
To be done with all this twisting of the truth.

An eye for an eye
And a tooth for a tooth
And anyway there was no proof
And I'm not afraid to die.

And the mercy seat is glowing
And I think my head is smoking
And in a way I'm hoping
To be done with all these looks of disbelief.

A life for a life
And a truth for a truth
And I've got nothing left to lose
And I'm not afraid to die.

And the mercy seat is smoking
And I think my head is melting
And in a way that's helping
To be done with all this twisting of the truth

An eye for an eye
And a tooth for a tooth
And anyway I told the truth
But I'm afraid I told a lie
