"Sellout" as written by and Matthew Joseph/houser West....
Lately all my friends are talking 'bout me
They see something different 'bout me
All I ever hear is "man you've changed"
Because I don't act like everyone
I march to the beat of a different drum
They think I'm going through some kind of phase

Now they call me names
I can hear them say

I'm a sellout
I'm a loser
I'm a yes-man
And I guess I'm never gonna live it down
I'm a sellout

I must say that my first inclination
Was to save my reputation
Try to blend right back into the crowd
But the more and more I tried to hide
The less and less I could deny
The truth was screaming at me clear and loud

I gave up the fight
I guess they were right

I'm a sellout
I'm a loser
I'm a yes-man
And I guess I'm never gonna live it down
I'm a sellout

I'm a sellout (sold out for the King)
I'm a loser (more of Jesus less of me)
I'm a yes-man (yes I will do anything He needs)
And I guess I'm never gonna live it down
I'm a sellout

    General CommentI love the lyrics to this song because it's completely relevant to the walk contemporary Christians have to walk. In our culture, we're trained to do what feels good (usually, conveniently, in terms of what our friends also happen to like) and challenge anything that's old and consequently in danger of being "outdated".

    As the song points out though, there's nothing wrong with selling out your carnal desires for your Savior--nothing wrong with losing your "self" to be more like Him. Once we realize that, we gain the strength to face the embarrassment of a world that will ultimately always reject us for the sake of a King who will always stand by our side. :D
