comment What is meant by “mercy your ears”?
Like I said, I can show you examples of the official lyrics of a song from the band's official website being completely wrong. Unless you get a chance to speak to the guy who wrote/sings the song yourself, you can't be sure what the words are. Do the band have an email address? A Facebook page or something like that? I would suggest all our efforts to make "mercy your ears" make sense are being wasted at this point.

comment Was James Joyce confused about “prone” and “supine” or am I?
I checked and the word "supine" appears only once in Ulysses: "What proofs did Bloom adduce to prove that his tendency was towards applied, rather than towards pure, science? Certain possible inventions of which he had cogitated when reclining in a state of supine repletion to aid digestion" so, not sure whether that helps. The other uses of "prone" are in the sense of "having a tendency", not physical position.
