Derek Webb’s “A New Law”

don’t teach me about politics and government

just tell me who to vote for

don’t teach me about truth and beauty

just label my music

 

don’t teach me how to live like a free man

just give me a new law

 

i don’t wanna know if the answers aren’t easy

so just bring it down from the mountain to me

 

i want a new law

i want a new law

gimme that new law

 

don’t teach me about moderation and liberty

i prefer a shot of grape juice

 

don’t teach me about loving my enemies

 

don’t teach me how to listen to the Spirit

just give me a new law

 

what’s the use in trading a law you can never keep

for one you can that cannot get you anything

 

do not be afraid

do not be afraid

do not be afraid
