"Mercy"

Thanks to melst over at u2mp3s, I have now gotten to hear "Mercy", a song I'm really, really loving. The lyrics are gorgeous, but I'm not 100% sure on them all. I've written out what I've been able to decipher, but I want you guys to help me out if you think I've got stuff wrong.

I was drinking some wine
And it turned to blood
What's the use of religion
If you're any good?
I know I'm weak without honey (?)
And you're sugar
If you're the prosecution
I'll get away with murder
If you are ice
I'm water
And with your terror storm (?)
I can see further
We're binary code
A one and a zero
You wanted violence
And you got Nero
You're gravity
Searching for the ground
You're silence
Searching for a sound
Your heart is aching
Your heart is my home
It's fascinating
I'll know I'll never be alone

I'm ripping the stitches
Of our deepest rut (?)
I'm digging ditches
Of someone's else's luck

Love hears when I lie
Love puts the blue back in my eye
Love will come again
I'll be gone again
Again

If you're Hunger
Baby, let me feed it
If your heart is full
Baby, let me bleed it
And happiness is for
Those who don't really need it
You love me
Too much
You always love me
Too much

When I'm ripping the stitches
Of our deepest rut (?)
I'm digging ditches
Of someone's else's luck

Love hears when I lie
Love puts the blue back in my eye
Love is come again
I am gone again
Love's got to be with the weak
Only then will it get the chance to speak
Love will come again
I'll be gone again
Again

I, I can't escape myself
I hear you talk (?)
Feel in my veins
I'll feel nothing
Feel
I hear so much (?)
Feel nothing
I hear so much (?)
Feel nothing
Ooooh

Love is come again
I am gone again

Love is the end of history
The enemy of misery
Love is come again
I am gone again

Love is justice and charity
Love brings with it clarity
Love is come again
I'm alive again
Alive
I am alive
Baby, I'm born again and again
And again
And again and again and again
Again
