  • [Chorus]
    There's no mercy on me
    No crying myself to sleep
    No mercy on me
    Nightmares have become my dreams
    No mercy for me
    Good morning reality
    Will I wake we'll never know
    I'm late for my date with destiny
    Let me go
    Let me go
    You've got to let me go
    Right or wrong
    Let me go
    I'm on my path
    Let me go

    My mama loved me more than I do
    She said you Pop was jus' like you
    Trapped in a vicious circle
    Jesus youngest disciple
    Tell the judge if he throwed the book at me
    Make it the bible
    Start calling myself the king
    For lack of a better title
    Loyal beyond belief to my detriment
    It's so vital I change or blow opportunities
    Like a choir recital
    Now while I do not care who telling
    Meanwhile selling powder puts food in the bellies
    Well it's, unfortunate
    The orphanage couldn't keep up the mortgages
    Kid go to school stupid they teachers ignoring it
    Sorta just doomed, forced into being a goon, selling kush in a jar
    Mixing at ton, a balloon
    Consumed with the same way of life I left
    Everything I know now learned by myself
    All you see are the whips
    The Maserati's Ferrari's
    So they don't sympathize
    Don't nobody feel sorry
    No mercy

    There's no mercy on me
    No crying myself to sleep
    No mercy on me
    Nightmares have become my dreams
    No mercy for me
    Good morning reality
    Will I wake we'll never know
    I'm late for my date with destiny
    Let me go

    Everybody's standing and waiting an they're hating
    Gospels say they should forgive me
    They'd rather hand me to Satan
    Blatant displays the day of hypocrisy
    Boy you got to be kidding
    Could it be possibly the second coming of Pac is me?
    Remember that
    When he was here
    And when he died you realized you need him here
    God with me partner
    Ain't no one for me to fear
    Hindsight twenty twenty
    Future not as clear
    But I'm a rider till I die
    Put bullets 'tween my eye
    I just ask that I can make my peace with god and say goodbye
    Fuck up the world like Lady Di
    One the day he died
    His wife and sons and daughters know that every day he tried
    To be a person all they wanted better verses
    They could market to the merchants
    But when they closed curtains
    You could be for certain ain't nobody perfect
    But when you're rich nobody gives a shit
    No mercy

    There's no mercy on me
    No crying myself to sleep
    No mercy on me
    Nightmares have become my dreams
    No mercy for me
    Good morning reality
    Will I wake we'll never know
    I'm late for my date with destiny
    Let me go
    You've got to let me go
    Let me go
    Let me go
    Let me go Writer/s: ALESSANDRO MURRU, ANDREA CAROLINE ELLIS HARRIS, CORRADO NICCOLI, STEFANO NOFERINI
