Derek Webb – I For An I lyrics

It's the desire of my heart
It's the anthem of my birth
I love you till you cross the line
Then watch my faith turn into works

Here's to hoping we evolve
Here's believing that we will
Blessed are those who seek for peace
In control are those who kill

An I for an I
Will never satisfy till there's nothing left to see

I was born to go to war
It comes so natural to me
Sure as a hammer finds a nail
Death is the only way to peace


I've got a killer instinct bringing out all of my best
I've got a poison conscience telling me to go with that
This may not work and I don't guarantee that it will
But I've got no choice unless you tell me who Jesus would
