WHAT YOU PREACH
[ written by Arizona folk singer Sarah Crews ]

                                 We are living in dangerous days
                                 And I am freightened by what you say
                                 We are bound to guard our borders
                                 Sacrifice our soldiers

                                 What kind of world is this
                                 Where hatred can persist?
                                 It chills right to the core
                                 This talk of holy war

                                        Really love your brother
                                        Love your neighbor like that too
                                        And only do to others
                                        What you would want them to do to you

                                 What they did in New York City
                                 Is the darkest kind of crime
                                 What can we tell our children
                                 If we respond in kind?

                                 We only teach them violence
                                 It is how the West was won
                                 Destroy the man who is different
                                 Than your own begotten son

                                        And really love your sister
                                        Love your neighbor like that too
                                        And only do to others
                                        What you would want them to do to you
                                        What you would want them to do to you

                                 We are living in dangerous days
                                 And I am freightened by what you say
                                 It chills right to the core
                                 This talk of holy war
