about

Mercy brings her unique, mesmerizing voice to songs that showcase her eclectic musical tastes and styles, from urban chill, to indie folk, to jazz, to new wave retro disco. In everything she sings, she brings her own unique depth of feeling, as well as a sly sense of humor, which shine through her singing and draw you into her world.

These songs are the result of a collaboration in the winter of 2015-2016 with Christopher Pellnat, who wrote some of the songs, did production and recording, and played instruments. He sings a duet with Mercy on "A Torrent."

The artwork for the EP is by Mercy Weiss.

Track Name: Ice Cream
Baby babe
Maybe maybe
Maybe we could work it out
you're already freezing
My cherry pouts
Maybe we could work it out

Baby babe
Maybe maybe
Maybe we could work it out
Over
Over twists and splits
Sugared sprinkled bits
Maybe i could take you for ice cream

Time is ticking baby
I see your cone is dripping crazy
Get above my radar
And watch me melt
Track Name: Love Dust
Dumb lust it's love dust, hooray!
Sprinkle the sadness away
I'll give you anything to stay
Dying to give this heart away

Dumb luck 'cause love's come my way
What she commands I obey
I don't care please understand
You can have the world I'll take the man

Dumb lust it's dumb lust, you'll see
It will not end gracefully
(Even in fantasy it’s a calamity)
Love's a betrayal of the past
(Cannot refuse when your love is in bloom)
Every kiss could be your last

Dumb lust it's love dust, hooray!
Sprinkle the sadness away
(Call me a fool as I break every rule)
I'll give you anything to stay
(It’s worth it anyway)
Dying to give this heart away
Track Name: Lioness
I'm ending my day
with a speaker
fetch me the shade, zookeeper
my body's a stray
I’m a sneaker of the day
wishing that you'd walk on by

He wont change
I’m untamed
this body is a cage
zookeeper
he wanna keep her in chains

I’ve been dancing on my honey
he don’t know my swing
its a harsh reality when what you love ain’t what you need
but I care and i'm there
while we sing a dayenu
what is real - we sin honest, tell me do hearts feel?

he gets real tired
at the sound of my name
he don't know where he’s going
it don't matter in this place
everywhere where these cool girls commence
I rip em to shreds with my nails
I get real nervous
when he runs round those girls

zookeeper unknotted my tail
zookeeper do you know how that feel
zookeeper is that catching chills?
zookeeper does my baby - oh - something tells me
my baby wants a thrill
Track Name: A Torrent
You were like a torrent that took me in my dream
Muddy churning chocolate foam and boulders rumbling
In the rapids
In the rapids
In the rapids
In the rapids

I can't swim to the surface I don't know which way is up
Days go by in blurs and I can't explain to anyone
Where my heart is
Where my heart is
Where my heart is
Where my heart is

The torrent in my dream swept me all away
How I wish I was a storm so I could do the same
To your fine heart
To your fine heart
To your fine heart
To your fine heart
Track Name: Evil Baby
I know what you are
Get out of the house
You're evil baby

You used to act so sweet
And I used to worshipped at your feet
But now you're just dripping spite
Your tongue it cuts just like a knife

I know what you are
Get out of the house
You're evil baby

You were telling lies while I sacrificed
Did you ever once speak the truth
When you were underneath this roof?

I know what you are
Get out of the house
You're evil baby

You left to conquer the world
I saw your revenge unfurled
Like a flag, a red carpet under lights
You were just itching for a fight

I know what you are
Get out of the house
You're evil baby
