    The House Plant Song by Audio Adrenaline

    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

    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 neighbour 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


    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 neighbour
    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 neighbour
    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!

    This song says it all
