A New Law by Derek Webb

This is a video produced to illustrate the meaning behind Derek Webb's song "A New Law." This song is on Derek's previous CD Mockingbird. Mockingbird is an awesome CD. Of course anything by Derek is powerfully written and beautifully played. Enjoy the song.

Here are the lyrics (please note the heavy sarcasm laden in the lyrics):
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

(vs. 2)
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
