my lyricsbox
Saturday night in Plainville
Saw some local people go
To the downtown corner movies
For a late night picture show
And it's ninety mindless minutes
Of the best in blood and gore
They all come out laughing,
Just can't wait for more.

While on the other side of
Town a child four years of age
Huddles up a weak defense
Against his fathers rage
And as we spend our time and money on
Life's moments cheapest thrills
In our city there's an Elm Street
Where the nightmare is real.

[Chorus]
Oh God, have mercy on us please,
For the times that You've shown
The need and we refused to see
Give us all a heart like Yours that grieves
For the lost souls on Elm Street
That need to be released

Complacency's a poison taken
One drop at a time
It fools our minds into
Thinking that everything's just fine
Desensitize our Spirit with
Nothing left to feel
'Till we never hurt for Elm Street
Where the nightmare is real

Oh Lord You've got to send me
Where there's a need to go
Put me on their street, Lord,
Cause they all need to know
There's a God who's so much bigger
Than anything their going through
Oh they need to know that there's
A place where nightmares don't come true.

Oh God, have mercy on us please,
For the times that You've shown
The need and we refused to see
Give us all a heart like Yours that grieves
For the lost souls on Elm Street
That need to be released

Oh God, have mercy on us please,
For the times that You've shown
The need and we refused to see
Give to us a heart like Yours that grieves
For the lost souls on Elm Street
That need to be released
