A King & A Kingdom

Words of wisdom from Derek Webb.

A King & A Kingdom


who’s your brother, who’s your sister
you just walked passed him
i think you missed her
as we’re all migrating to the place where our father lives
’cause we married in to a family of immigrants


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 & a kingdom


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

but nothing unifies like a common enemy

and we’ve got one, sure as hell

but he may be living in your house
he may be raising up your kids
he may be sleeping with your wife
oh no, he may not look like you think
