Mercy Me (Alkaline Trio Cover) by BrodieSkiddlz published on 2013-02-13T00:12:01Z Mercy Me by Alkaline Trio. This was a song that wrote itself. After an exceptionally long day, Matt came home and opened a bottle of wine, lit some candles and got a pen and paper. He wanted to write something akin to the feel of 'Bad scene, Everyone's fault' by Jawbreaker. It took him an hour to write and the next day he sent out demos to Dan and Derek. Danny called him up and told him he really liked it and that it reminded him of an 'Old Trio song'. I agree, Danny.
