Text písně The Houseplant Song

Once I read a book 
And this is what it said 
If your music has a beat 
Then you're gonna wind up dead 
It doesn't really matter if it's Christian or not 
If it's syncopated rhythm then your soul is gonna rot 
And this book was called "Ha! Your Gonna Burn" 
And in the second chapter I went on to learn 


CHORUS: 
Take two houseplants 
And put them to the test 
Set them both in front of speakers 
And let the music do the rest 
The first one you play Mozart 
Or something lovely like that 
The second one you play that Petra Or that MegaDeth. 
Doesn't really matter what kind of rock it is. 


So I took my two houseplants 
And I put them to the test 
Set them both in front of speakers 
To let the music do the rest 
I powered up my Pioneers 
To let the music roar 
But twenty minutes later 
Someone's knocking at my door 
I opened up my door 
And there my neighbor stood 
He said, "Man I'd like to get some sleep 
If you think I could" 
I said, "Man, can't you see here 
I've got this moral dilemma that I got to get clear." 
He said, " What kind of moral dilemma 
Could you have at this time of night 
That could make me so angry 
That I just want to fight!?" 
So I pointed to the page in that open book 
That had a picture of a potted plant 
And I said, "Go have a look." 
And he read 


CHORUS 


First of all he said, 
"That's Wagner that you're playing 
I've never heard of Petra 
And isn't MegaDeth all dead." 
And secondly, emphatically, He asked me, 
"What's the sense of hanging out with houseplants when, hey, 
I live right across the fence." 
And I thought to myself 
You know, that's a good point 
So I took my two houseplants, and 
I put them both back outside 
And me and my neighbor 
Well, we went out for a drive 
We talked about all the things 
That really matter most 
Like life and love and happiness 
And then the Holy Ghost 
And now my two houseplants 
They sit out in the sun 
As for me and my neighbor 
Well our friendship has become 
A meaningful relationship 
That's headed straight to heaven 
But as for now 
We like to sit around and listen to Audio Adrenaline 
Cranked to eleven!
