Malice Toward None

This song is by Deadman and appears on the album Severe Mercy (2008).

Well, I have been thinking for way too long
About how to deal with offence
How Abraham Lincoln wrote with his pen
And made all the confusion make sense
And brought all the soldiers to tears
And still a nation's great fears

Malice toward none
Malice toward none
Help us to live with malice toward none
Malice toward none
Malice toward none
Help us to live with malice toward none

Now in tense situations I find myself
And some days for vengeance I yearn
And Lex Talionis sounds like a good plan
Until it becomes my turn
'Cause I don't like the taste in my mouth
And I don't like my ways to head south

Malice toward none
Malice toward none
Teach me to live with malice toward none
Malice toward none
Malice toward none
Teach me to live with malice toward none

Between a rock and a hard place I find myself wedged
And it looks like I'll get no relief
When I'm battered and bruised by the people I trust
And I can't seem to hold on to peace
But I can't seem to hold to the phrase
And it gets me through the darkest of days

Malice toward none
Malice toward none
Teach us to live with malice toward none
Malice toward none
Malice toward none
Teach us to live with malice toward none
