Justice and Mercy
by Flyleaf



We can't be oblivious
We are not ignorant
Blood in our hearts, blood on our hands
We're human, we reason
We're breathing, protecting the living and dying
Surviving we're trying to breathe in safety, come home safely

Mercy screams it's violent love
JUSTICE and mercy
JUSTICE and mercy
The depth of us created for
JUSTICE and mercy
JUSTICE and mercy
This is where they kiss

Life here sacrificed
Someone who payed the price
Blood in our hearts, blood on our hands
We cry out, we're fighting
It's warfare, we're dying
Believing we're winning
Its ending, we're singing
It's all ready done, we've over come

Mercy screams it's violent love
JUSTICE and mercy
JUSTICE and mercy
The depth of us created for
JUSTICE and mercy
JUSTICE and mercy
This is where they kiss

With their life on the line
THE FIRE
That consumes or refines
THE FIRE
To accend or decline
To retreat or to climb
Out of sight out of mind
Will this fire consume or refine?

Mercy screams it's violent love
JUSTICE and mercy
JUSTICE and mercy
The depth of us created for
JUSTICE and mercy
JUSTICE and mercy
This is where they kiss
