Don't give up
I know you can see
All the world and the mess that were making
Can't give up
And hope God will intercede
Come on back
Imagine that we could get it together
Stand up for what we need to be
Cause crying won't save or feed a hungry child
Can't lay down and wait for a miracle to change things
So lift up your eyes
Lift up your heart

Singing mercy will we overcome this
Oh one by one could we turn it around
Maybe carry on just a little bit longer
And I try to give you what you need

Me and you and you and you
Just want to be free yeah
But you see all the world is just as we've made it
And until we got a new world
I Got to say that love is not a whisper or a weakness

No love is strong
So we got to get together yeah
Gotta get gotta get gotta get
Til there is no reason
To fight

Mercy will we overcome this
Yeah one by one could we turn it around
Maybe carry on just a little bit longer
And I try to give you what you need

Yeah
Ah
Oh
Yeah

Mercy will we overcome this
Oh we come to far to turn it around
Oh and asked too much to be a little bit stronger
Cause I want to give you what you need

Mercy what will become of us
Oh one by one could we turn it around
Maybe carry on just a little bit longer
And I try to give you what you need

i usually hate DMB music, but i didn't find it necessary to PSD this one
 
i must be mellowing in my old age
Channeling Curtis Mayfield are we now?
Aggggghhhhhhhh! No more Dave Matthews RP!

patience there hippiechick.. dont let it bring you down, remember,one mans ceiling is another mans floor
It was going so well with the music tonight...and then DMB came along and made a radish out of the whole thing. Oh well - the next song will sound like musical bliss by comparison.
My god he's vanilla. I'm guessing Consumer Reports recommend his music, along with Phil Collins and Sting.

I don't usually feel compelled to want to switch off RP, but DMB just came on. *Mute*
Love it.  Thank you RP!  This is the first time I've heard DMB on here.  A little more wouldn't hurt.  Just a little :)

Just when I think my musical epoch has ended (and music is nothing but 20-year girls old whining in Icelandic about ponies in dreams), out comes something this great and I feel its all still happening. It? All? ...Rock-n-roll I mean.

I am with you, I love the quality of the voice, it makes this band distinctive.. and yes.... very ENJOYABLE
i think i can actually understand what is being said this time around!

Lot more to this BAND than just Dave.

Well put. I like his band, but his wailing does zilcho for me.

Hey I agree too ! Maybe it's not a minority!  :-)

WOW!  great to hear the new DMB song on RP.  I am told by reliable sources that this album will compare favorably to the other Steve Lillywhite produced DMB albums.  Can't wait to hear more songs from the new album (out 9/11/12).
 

Awesome, I am excited! The more I hear "Mercy", the more excited I am, that the new album may just possibly take us back to Dave's older stuff... yay!

That makes a lot of sense. I'd rather hear Geddy Lee than Dave Matthews any day! Well, and Rush, too. 
 
Hmmm.....how about getting Dave and Rush to have a duet?
Mitch Mitchel with Hendrix at his  near best on drums here.  Who is the better? Watts with the Stones or Mitchell?  Depends on the context.......tip

I find DMB to be a lot like Rush for two reasons; 1) very polarizing- either you love them or hate them and 2) they both have some of the best musicianship possible with the singer/singing being the weakest link.  Most (not all) musicians tend to worship these bands and rightly so.  As a drummer I happen to be a big fan of both (Neil Peart and Carter Beauford = great chops).

The pre-release buzz about DMB's next album is positive for the most part.  You can hear the Lillywhite influence on this song.

Too bad there's not a button for you.
 
:) Right back at ya!
Too bad there's not a button to mute out the negative comments about this very talented man!
Just my opinion, but I find Dave Matthews to be almost as irritating as Counting Crows (but not quite).
How did I not know they had a new album!? I really hope it doesn't disappoint... the last few albums don't even hold a candle to Dave's earlier stuff. Here's to hoping for something similar to the early DMB sound, which I dearly love.

Surely would like to hear more DMB on RP. Not sure how much this new song (Mercy) measures up to the great history of tracks, but appreciate hearing it.
They have had this in heavy rotation on tour this summer, such a pretty song:)

This studio version is sounding mighty fine as well!
Not too bad, but 'MUTE' is better.
