From Derek Webb's, "My Enemies Are Men Like Me":

"I have come to give you life,
and to show you how to live it.
I have come to make things right,
to heal their ears and show you how to forgive them.
Cause I would rather die, I would rather die, I would rather die,
Than to take your life.
Cause how can I kill for what I'm supposed to love?
My enemies are men like me."

"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."

"....When justice is bought and sold just like weapons of war,
and the ones who always pay are the poorest of the poor.
My enemies are men like me."

From Derek Webb's, "A 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' teach me how to listen to the Spirit,
Just give me a new law,
I don't want to know,
If the answers aren't easy.
Just bring it down from the mountain to me."

From Derek Webb:

"we hope this bold campaign will provide a jumping off point for conversations about all of these issues, and communicate my commitment to playing my part in starting them. so please help us spread the word: on september 1st, 'mockingbird' will be set free!"
