    Not sure how I feel about this tune. I don't think it's bad, but I am not sure exactly how I feel about it.

    Re: Mercy

    stefan described this song as acoustic via twitter... was that just a joke because dave was playing it acoustically tonight, or do you think itll be acoustic on the album too?

    Re: Mercy

    WOW, really pleased!

    I hear a little violin fill, Stefan upright bass, Carter shakers and some floating sax being a potential. Gorgeous! Then some Tim fills....really looking forward to the album now!

    I love the lyrics, more complex and full. IN addition, I hear a little Light Lift Me Up in there. Stoked to hear more.

    Re: Mercy

    Just wondering about something. If this song is on the album, I'm guessing Sweet won't be. Doesn't Sweet have lyrics Don't Give up. keep your head up? When Dave sang that line I thought this might be a re-worked version of Sweet.

    I really hope the whole band is involved on the album. Those hooks could be much more groovy with some Carter in there!

    Great song. Can't wait for the album. I agree that it could be done full band which would be awesome.

    Re: Mercy

    With as little as Dave was playing on guitar the whole song, it makes me think this song is more complex musically with full instrumentation. I'm hoping it will be.

    Re: Mercy

    I have a strong feeling that "Crime won't save or feed a hungry child" is actually "Christ won't save or feed a hungry child" on the record. Didn't want that on national TV, especially when he's trying to gather support for Obama.

    sillywhite just said it was to be not acoustic on the album...so hopefully this answers this question..think the band can do good things with this tune like at the end of loving wings

    Re: Mercy

    This is a good song. I don't care what anyone says. Lyrically solid.

    I'm thinking it is "me and you, you and me, just wanna be free" but "me and you, and you and you" makes sense and sounds alright... he could be talking about the masses (and you, and you etc.)

    If this is the worst song on the album, this album might very well be the bands best effort. I know its early for that kind of talk, but I'm anticipating greatness.

    I think the music could be solid with the full band, but I really don't like the lyrics at all.

    Re: Mercy

    I really like this song. It is simple, but it will be great with strings and light drums on the record.

    We also have to realize that this song was obviously very well suited for the setting in which it was played. It's very much an acoustic tune and it's definitely fit for what this show really was for: Gathering support for Obama.

    I expect much better on the record, but this is definitely a good start.
