Some Lyrics To Consider: Derek Webb

"Politics or love can make you blind or make you see/Make you a slave or make you free/But only one does it all/And it's giving up your life for the ones you hate the most/It's giving them your gown when they've taken your clothes/It's learning to admit when you've had a hand in setting them up, in knocking them down/Are we defending life when we just pick and choose/Lives acceptable to lose and which ones to defend/'Cause you cannot choose your friends but you choose your enemies/And what if they were one and the same/Could you find a way to love them both the same/To give them your name"

— from Derek Webb's "Love Is Not Against the Law," on his latest album Mockingbird.
