CHER lyrics - Sisters Of Mercy

CHER
"Sisters Of Mercy"

Your faith is not faithful
Your grace has no grace
Your mercy shows no mercy
Is there no way out of this place?

There's a baby crying softly
In a dark and dangerous place
She's imprisones by no language
Fear grips her tiny face

In God's house she's held a hostage
By a cruel and heartless mob
There's some rules they think God's written
And it justifies their job

Sisters of mercy[sisters of mercy]
Daughters of hell[daughters of hell]
They always weave their web of lies
And wrap you in their wicked spell
Sisters of mercy[sisters of mercy]
Masters of pain[masters of pain]
They try to crucify your innocence
And do it in God's name

There's a baby sobbing softly
In a crib that's now a cage
She's done nothing to deserve this
But it sanctifies their rage

They use God like he's a weapon
Only for a chosen few
Then hide behind pious faces
Like the guilty always do

Sisters of mercy[sisters of mercy]
Mothers of shame[mothers of shame]
A baby only gets to heaven
If she's baptised in his name
Sisters of mercy[sisters of mercy]
Daughters of war[Daughters of war]
This chicks administer your penance
While the Devil guards their door

Your faith is not faithful
Your grace has no grace
Your mercy shows no mercy
Is there no way out of this place?

There's a baby who's a warrior
Sometimes tears run down her face
As she wonders should she fight
Or simply vanish from this race

If she's only learned one lesson
It's pride comes before a fall
The karma train waits for no man
But God waits for us all

Sisters of mercy[sisters of mercy]
Twisters of truth[twisters of truth]
I can't condemn you or forgive you
For your sins done in my youth
Sisters of mercy[sisters of mercy]
Daughters of Cain[Daughters of Cain]
I see their wilted faded powers rotting flowers
Left like rags out in the rain

Sisters of mercy[sisters of mercy]
Mothers of hell[mothers of hell]
Your mercy shows no mercy
Is there no way out of this place?
Is there no way out of this place?

Your faith is not faithful
Your grace has no grace
Your mercy shows no mercy
Is there no way out of this place?
Is there no way out of this place?

Your faith is not faithful
Your grace has no grace
Your mercy shows no mercy
Is there no way out of this place?
Is there no way out of this place?

Your grace has no grace
