The Lyrics

a look at christian rock bands......
i am just a small boy
but my story must be told
i have sold a lot of tickets
at a concert hall
where christians fill the premises
all lies and jest
but some folks hear what they want to hear
and disregard the rest...hmmmmmm

when i left my home and family
i was no more than a boy
singing casually for strangers
i would do it for a small donation
unaware...i would go...
streaking up the christian pop charts
and i'd make all kinds of dough
though, i've never been a christian
there's no need for them to know

so i i lie lie...lie lie lie
so i i lie lie lie lie lie...lie lie lie lie lie

singing songs like "rock of ages"
i will entertain the mob
and they'll fill my coffers
its a rip-off and a bore
but i'll get great reviews
i do declare
there were times when i felt so wholesome
it gave me quite a la la la la

as i i lie lie...lie lie lie
as i i lie lie lie lie lie...lie lie lie lie lie

now, i'm laying out my sequined clothes
my stage fright almost gone...going on
where this crowd of former sinners
will be meeting me...greeting me...going on

i can live just like a rock star
with the money i have made
i'll be playing the piano
on every song and laying down
some bass chords with my left hand
while i'm screaming out christ's name
they are cheering..they are cheering
and i don't feel any shame

as i i lie lie...lie lie lie
as i i lie lie lie lie lie...lie lie lie lie lie
as i i lie lie...lie lie lie
as i i lie lie lie lie lie...lie lie lie lie lie

that just about sums up the hypocrisy of a lot of christian rock bands, 5's

I'd bet that the vast majority of Christian rock bands are sincere in their beliefs... but this is a well done parody.

This sums up the unease I felt over Neal Morse leaving Spock's Beard just as 'Snow' was ready to be promoted. I'm sure the guy meant well and all that, but it also smacked of a big baby taking his bat and ball home. The bit about him playing the piano was so Neal!
