"Becoming A Slave" as written by and Joshua Moore Derek W. Webb....
I admire these men
Brave and beautiful
Grabbing the blade from all the wrong sides like children

They bring skins and smoke
We bring shackles and guns
We trade with them and then we'll take them home

'Cause it's simple
So simple
They're not like us

Becoming a slave is easier than you think
Becoming a slave is easier than you think
Becoming a slave is easier than you think
Becoming a slave

There's always a price to pay
It's gotta hit somebody's back
Trust me, new worlds don't just build themselves

Progress has more than one face
Even though it's always itself
There's nothing you can change that doesn't change everything else

So it's simple
It's so simple
If they're not like us

Becoming a slave is easier than you think
Becoming a slave is easier than you think
Becoming a slave is easier than you think
Becoming a slave

Torn from every head
A product of every word
It's under our feet; you know it's over our heads

Everyone's telling the truth
In languages that nobody speaks
You listen close you hear what you believe

To love vision
To love action
To love vision
To love action
To be what you want
To be what you want


"We want justice in the system
The strong fend for the weak
We want justice in the system
We won't accept defeat
We want justice in the system
Let's reach a higher peak
We want justice in the system, system, system"
