I'm sorry if this has been posted already, if this topic of discussion has been brought up.

I just got around to downloading Mercy about a week ago.

[EDIT:I've been trying to think of exactly how to express my opinion on the song and I think I've got it now. I think it's a pretty good song for a demo but is highly overrated. The music is probably the best thing it has going for it; the guitar parts that The Edge plays are quite good. What really puts it into the "it could be a whole lot better" category are the lyrics. There are lines here and there that I really dig ("What's the use of religion if you're any good") and I like the chorus, but most of the lyrics either make me cringe or seem slightly unfocused. I think that if they re-recorded the song and rewrote the lyrics it would be a very good song. Hopefully they'll get around to it for the next album. END EDIT]

Opinions? Thoughts? Bueller?
