Derek Webb - Ballad In Plain Red Lyrics

Send Ballad In Plain Red Ringtone to your Cell

im robbing peter, im paying paul
im changing my name back to saul
i got to them and you know ill get to you

im turning shepherds into sheep
and leaders into celebrities
its holy sabotage, just look around you

cause everythings for sale in the 21st century
and the check is in the mail from the 21st century

dont want the song i want a jingle
i love you Lord but dont hear a single
and the truth is nearly impossible to rhyme

but i know the songs with all the hooks
and i know some lies that will sell some books
so grab em fast, im running outta time

just keep selling truth in candy bars
on billboards and backs of cars
truth without context, my favorite of all my crimes


what works verses what's right
hey what's the difference tonight?

take out the sign, forget the meal
weve got a gym and a farris wheel
i swear it's just like the country club down the block

cause you can make your life look good
you can do what Jesus would
but youd be surprised what you can do with a hard heart


i think youve got trouble in the 21st century
so welcome to the struggle, its the 21st century
i never thought id make it to the 21st century
Lord, i love the 21st century

i write these words from the grave
cause its the only place that im safe
and only the dead are permitted to speak the truth
