What Matters More Lyrics

What Matters More Lyrics by Derek Webb :
[Verse 1]
You say always treat people like you’d like to be
I guess you love being hated for your sexuality
You love when people put words in your mouth
About what you believe, make you sound like a freak
Because if you really believed what you say you believe
You wouldn’t be so damned reckless with the words you speak
You wouldn’t silently consent when the liars speak
Denying all the dying of the remedy

[Chorus]
Tell me, brother what matters more to you
Tell me, sister what matters more to you

[Verse 2]
If I can see what’s in your heart by what comes out of your mouth
Then it sure looks to me like being straight is all it’s about
It looks like being hated for all the wrong things
Like chasing the wind while the pendulum swings
Because we can talk and debate until we’re blue in the face
About the language and tradition that He’s coming to save
And meanwhile we sit just like we don’t have give a sh*t
About fifty thousand people who are dying today

[Chorus]
