The Ringing Bell

Everyone needs to check out Derek Webb’s new album “The Ringing Bell”

He also wrote a graphic novel by the same title to go with it.

I haven’t purchased the novel yet, but the album is awesome as usual. Click on the Derek Webb link on my links list to purchase a cheaper copy.

I wanted to give you a sneak preview of a song called “This too shall be made right”

People love you the most for the things you hate,

and hate you for loving the things you cant keep straight.

People Judge you on a curve,

and tell you you’re getting what you deserve –

And this too shall be made right

Children cannot learn when children cannot eat.

Stack them like lumber and children cannot sleep.

Children dream of wishing wells,

whose waters quench all the fires of hell –

And this too shall be made right

The earth and the sky and the sea are all holding their breath.

Wars and abuses have nature groaning with death.

We say were just trying to stay alive,

but it looks so much more like a way to die –

And this too shall be made right

There’s a time for peace there is a time for war.

There’s a time to forgive and a time to settle the score.

A time for babies to lose their lives,

A time for hunger and genocide –

And this too shall be made right

I don’t know the suffering of people outside my front door.

I join the opressors of those I choose to ignore.

I’m trading comfort for human life,

and that’s not just murder it’s suicide –

And this too shall be made right

Oh this too shall be made right
