"A New Law" as written by Derek W. Webb on his album "Mockingbird"...
Don't teach me about politics and government
Just tell me who to vote for
And don't teach me about truth and beauty
Just label my music
And don't teach me how to live like a free man
Just give me a new law

I don't want to 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
Just give me that 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't 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
So just bring it down, from the mountain to me
I want a new law, I want a new law
Just give me that new law

Cause what's the use in trading
A law you could never keep
For one that you can, that can not get you anything

Do not be afraid.

    General CommentWebb is kind of poking fun at everyone who lets others choose their beliefs for them. No Holy Spirit, no Scripture guiding our actions and beliefs.
