    Lyrics

    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
