Syzygy – Justice Or Mercy

Syzygy - Justice Or MercyA song that starts with a bass­line sim­il­ar to the clas­sic 'Photographic' by Depeche Mode and has a com­par­able energy can't be wrong per se. 'Justice Or Mercy' is the name of the power­ful synth pop / new wave song by the Australian duo 'Syzygy' and it con­vinced me from the very first note.

The song is catchy, har­mon­ic and stays in your ear right away. Nevertheless, you can hear a little rebel­li­ous elec­tro-punk ele­ment in the sub-vibra­tions and in the atti­tude of the song. Just as was the case with many dark­er 80s New Wave tracks. Excellent!

Lyrics of 'Syzygy – Justice Or Mercy'

I know you only care
what oth­ers see laid bare
When you only hold yourself
to stand­ards that are shared
Offered guilt, remorse
They have no recourse
You rely on me to grant you
your immunity

Ask your­self, is it justice or do you value mercy?
The only justice that I have is the power to take mercy
The only justice that I have is the power to put this beneath me
Living well is my justice and trust me, it’s your mercy

The les­son learned back then
To over­come it from within
Don’t just wait and hope they’ll feel
the con­sequence again
With mercy comes freedom
Control to choose the reason
To re-write my own story
revise my own history
Offered guilt, remorse
They have no recourse
I rely on me to prove my self sufficiency

Ask your­self, is it justice or do you value mercy?
The only justice that I have is the power to take mercy
Living well is my justice and trust me, it’s your mercy
Living well is my justice and trust me, it’s your mercy
Ask yourself
Do you value mercy?
