lyrics

Death has a twin
I’m gonna say it again.
Death has a twin.
A twin sister.
I’m telling you, Mister

Death has a twin
I’m gonna say it again
Death has a twin
A twin sister
And her name is Fake Mercy
Fake Mercy
Fake Mercy
Fake Mercy
and in the right light she can look pretty
She always looks pretty to me

She’ll tell you that you’re going to survive
She’ll tell you you are her only lover
She’ll tell you there’s a better life
waiting for you, just around the corner
You don’t want her, but you need her
And when you meet her you’ll fall in love with this girl
Someday she’ll be the queen of the world
A world of believing what you want to believe
believing what you want to believe
believing what you want to believe
believing what you want to believe
believing what you want to believe
believing what you want to believe

This is the speaker of your dreams
Bringing temporary pleasure to your broken heart
And this is the long awaited age of believing what you want to believe
Believing what you want to believe
And this is the long awaited age of Fake Mercy
Fake Mercy
Fake Mercy
Fake Mercy
Fake Mercy
Fake Mercy
Fake Mercy
Fake Mercy
Here she comes again
Here she comes again
Here she comes again
Here she comes
And she really looks pretty
And she tells such pretty lies
Until her brother can take you by surprise.
