A King and a Kingdom

by Derek Webb

Who’s your brother, who’s your sister 
You just walked passed him 
I think you missed her 
As we’re all migrating to the place where our Father lives 
’cause we married in to a family of immigrants 

My first allegiance is not to a flag, a country, or a man 
My first allegiance is not to democracy or blood 
It’s to a king and a kingdom 

There are two great lies that I’ve heard: 
“The day you eat of the fruit of that tree, you will not surely die.” 
And that Jesus Christ was a white, middle-class Republican 
And if you wanna be saved you have to learn to be like Him 


But nothing unifies like a common enemy 
And we’ve got one, sure as hell 
But he may be living in your house 
He may be raising up your kids 
He may be sleeping with your wife 
Oh no, he may not look like you think
