sobering words from derek

Listen Here

i repent of my pursuit of America’s dream
i repent of living like i deserve anything
my house, my fence, my kids, and my wife
in our suburb where we’re safe and white
i am wrong and of these things i repent

i repent of parading my liberty
i repent of paying for what i get for free
for the way i believe that i am living right
by trading sins for others that are easier to hide
i am wrong and of these things i repent

i repent. judging by a law that even i can’t keep
of wearing righteousness like a disguise
to see through the planks in my own eyes

i repent of trading truth for false unity
i repent of confusing peace and idolatry
of caring more of what they think than what i know of what we need
and domesticating You until You look just like me
i am wrong and of these things i repent
