Lyrics
"Mercy"



Help me

I've fallen on the inside

I tried to change the game

I tried to infiltrate

But now I'm losing men in cloaks

Always seem to run the show

Save me from the ghosts and shadows

Before they eat my soul



Mercy, mercy

Show me mercy

From the powers that be

Show me mercy

Can someone rescue me



Absent gods and silent tyranny

We're going under hypnotised

By another puppeteer

And tell me why the men in cloaks

Always have to bring me down

Running from the ghosts and shadows

The world just disavows



Mercy, mercy

Show me mercy

From the powers that be

Show me mercy

Can someone rescue me



Show me mercy

Show me mercy please



Help me

I've fallen on the inside

And all the men in cloaks

Trying to devour my soul



Show me mercy

From the powers that be

Show me mercy

From the gutless and mean

Show me mercy

From the killing machines

Show me mercy

Can someone rescue me

Oh wow! I asked for spectacle, and you delivered in the most delightful way. This is gorgeous. The tragic arrest! The armada! The chariot race! The gleaming pectorals! And of course, the cloaks! You have it all. Thank you so much, wonderful festividder. This is fabulous.

Just came back to watch again (and again). This really is so pretty. Whatever your process is for getting source, this is so clean and lovely. It really does justice to the scope of the film.

Thank you! I'm happy the spectacle and scope came across in the vid for you, especially given how long the movie is.

As for sourcing, I got it off iTunes, and it took me forever to get it all converted, so I'm also happy that paid off. :)

Ahhh, this is incredible! Your storytelling is wonderful and you really managed to capture the epic scope and feel of the movie. I loved all the intercutting of Judah and Messala's history you did, it really drove home the emotional impact and Judah's journey as a character. Bravo!

Thank you! It's tricky to distill such a long and epic movie into 4 minutes, so I'm really glad all that came across for you.

This is fantastic! It's been so many years since I saw this film, I really don't remember it at all well - but you've made me want to rewatch it! This was really intense and emotional, and had some fab timing - loved the drumbeats!

Awww this is great! I love the great use of the epic visuals and how you bring out the emotions of the slashy relationship especially with the interlocked arms drinking intercuts.

I can't even say I was trying super hard to make this slashy, but it's all RIGHT THERE in the movie. Thank you!
