03. Fence Riders

by Jimmy Needham


Am I foolishness to you
And is it laughable the things I do
And can your callous mind see past yourself to his divine
Am I foolishness to you

Can I sing about my maker and have you not roll your eyes
Can I weep about my savior and the way he died
I know it donít make sense to those who ride the fence
But Iím sold out to Christ

You call it loosening up
I call it spiraling down
Only one things the same
Only one thing remains


Youíre all asleep
Youíre all asleep
Youíre all asleep but heís all I need
And you donít see it


Written by Jimmy Needham

Behind the Song:
"I interacted with an old friend from high school who, although he had the most vulgar mouth and an arrogant spirit, still found it important to wear his Jesus jewelry. I wrote this song in response to that encounter. Hear this: there is no room for mediocrity in the Christian life. May we all learn to talk the talk AND walk the walk.Ē- Jimmy Needham
