“A Cut Inside” lyrics (Via AZ Lyrics)

I don’t wanna be
Caught up in your scene
So little left of me

I gave you everything, I crawled
Watched you dance ‘cross the floor
I need something to believe in
They don’t know my name
Take the blame
They will hold you
Bind and choke you

Caught in the lie
Tears in my eyes
Thorns of this life
Cut inside
No heathens in Heaven
No sweet surrender
Outsiders forever
The ghost of our lives

We will never be
Caught in your belief
Get up off your knees

You took everything, I crawled
Watched you dance ‘cross the floor
I need something to believe in
They don’t know your name
Take the blame

Caught in the lie
With tears in my eyes
The bones of this life
Cut inside
No heathens in Heaven
No sweet surrender
Outsiders forever
Ghosts of our lives

No heathens in Heaven
No sweet surrender
Outsiders forever
The ghost of our lives

In an official statement, Astbury talked abou the new record, saying: “I was absolutely enamored with this piece of music Billy had written, and it perfectly fit these thoughts I’d been having about our culture’s need to move past assumptions of duality. We need new language because words can’t express where we’re going.”

Duffy also commented, saying: “‘Give Me Mercy’ has all the hallmarks of the new classic Cult to my ears … fresh yet familiar.”
