Mercy Killing
Lloyd Cole Lyrics


Shirley I love you 'til I'm drunk
And on and on and never to stop
The way I see it it's sad to say it but it's true
You're gonna be all that I need
So sad to see her looking so rusted
There must be more to life than this
Or we'd be mercy killing us
Yeah, killing us baby
The last train's leaving, there's nothing left
'Cept to confess to love and happiness
The way I see it it's sad to say it but it's true
You're gonna be all that I need
So sad, sad to see her looking so rusted
There must be more to life than this
Or we'd be mercy killing us
Oh yeah, killing us baby
We'll slip past a graveyard
Love me do

"...there must be more to live than this, or we be mercy killing us baby...." Considering the current state of affairs....it maybe apropos

Duncan Lindsay He's a much less insecure person than Morrissey. I saw a recent interview with him where Morrissey was so defensive, rude, and arrogant that the damn interviewer should have walked out. By contrast Lloyd Cole puts on about as many airs as Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols. He's funny and relaxed and self deprecating and gives off zero 'star' vibe. It's even more sad when the so called celebrity is past it. Like Morrissey for example. But he wrote the lyric "There's more to life than books you know but not much more." which I think may be the funniest rock lyric I ever heard.
