Mercy Down 03:41
There's dead canary in the coal mine And a lamb's head growing from a grape vine There's an old man laughing in the back yard catching crooks and crickets in a bell jar I've bee waiting for my woman to relieve me But she's outside climbing on the oak tree There's a dead canary in the coal mine And a lamb's head growing from a grape vine Growing from a grape vine It's getting biblical now Better pick your weapons up and throw your mercy down It's' getting mythical now Better pick your weapons up and throw your mercy throw your mercy down There's a mad man tapping at the window with a pocket full of innuendo there's a joker pokin at the doorbell and a sparrow drowning in the ink well I've been waiting for my lover to relieve me But she's outside swinging from the oak tree Swinging from the oak tree It's getting biblical now Better pick your weapons up and throw your mercy down It's' getting mythical now Better pick your weapons up and throw your mercy throw your mercy down There's a tyrant on the throne and a clown on every screen compelling us to stay at home in this low grade fever dream But we're gathering our strength We're becoming less afraid there is hope for us in this unholy mess we've made It's getting biblical now Better pick your weapons up and throw your mercy down It's' getting mythical now Better pick your weapons up and throw your mercy throw your mercy down

about

Hope And A Hand Grenade comes as Shayfer James' seventh studio release, and showcases his ongoing growth as a singer-songwriter. His music provides a unique blend of catchy unconventionality; bright pop melodies are interwoven with gothic-tinged lyrics and emotive vocals, all delivered with a splash of whiskey humor, smart quip, and air of dark charm.
