I'm No Better

Love this song by Shaun Groves.  He said "When asked by a magazine to make a public statement about a friend’s sin I wrote a song about my own instead."

When you sling your stone
Aim it at her heart
Where every crime comes from
Where every stumble starts
And save the next for me
Muster all your skill
‘Cause sin in secrecy
Is the hardest kind to kill
Lay me down with the liars
The brawlers, thieves and backbiters
Lay me down with the others
‘Cause I’m no better
There’s no justice here
Just as well you know
We’ve all got hell to pay
But grace pays all we owe
Lay me down with the liars
The brawlers, thieves and backbiters
Lay me down with the others
‘Cause I’m no better

Lay me down with the takers
Politicians, cheats and heart breakers
Lay me down with the others
‘Cause I’m no better
