Derek Webb - lyrics from the new album "Mockingbird"

"There are two great lies that I've heard: the day you eat of the fruit of that tree, you will not surely die and that Jesus Christ was a white, middle-class republican and if you wanna be saved you have to learn to be like Him." -from A King & A Kingdom

"Peace by way of war is like purity by way of fornication it's like telling someone murder is wrong and then showing them by way of execution." -from My Enemies Are Men Like Me

"Are we defending life when we just pick and choose lives acceptable to lose and which ones to defend." -from Love Is Not Against The Law

"I don't want to know if the answers aren't easy. . . Don't teach me about moderation and liberty, i prefer a shot of grape juice." -from A New Law

"My first allegiance is not to a flag, a country, or a man, my first allegiance is not to democracy or blood it's to a king and a kingdom." -from A King & A Kingdom

"Come on and follow Me, but sell your house, sell your SUV, sell your stocks, sell your security and give it to the poor." -From Rich Young Ruler
