Rocky Start
Parody of "Rockstar" by Nickelback
(Matthew 7:24-27, 21:42; Luke 6:47-49, 1 Corinthians 3:9-15, Psalms 118:22-23, 1 Peter 2:4-8)

I'm through with sand in my eyes because of weather and wind
Seemed like a tropic paradise -- I remember movin' in
This life hasn't turned out quite the way I thought it would be
(Tell me what you want)
I want a brand new house -- one that's never gonna drift
Or collapse whenever the rains fall in
And I think time's come to give up this sandbox dream
(Yeah, so what you need)
I need to get it started -- I'll begin it
With a big flat layer of bedrock in it
Gonna fortify my house like Matthew 7 counsels me
(Built better, done right)
I've got a new toolbox called the Word of God
And I'll start on top of the Solid Rock
Cause it's Extreme Human Makeover time for me
(So how you gonna do it)
I'm gonna change this life before it's in flames
I'll even call Ty here to trade my space

Cause we all just gotta get a big rocky start
So we can build our house without a shifting yard
It don't come easy, but it's dug down deep
The walls stay standing and the steps won't creak
And we'll hang tough in the cruelest storms
When you see high winds on the news reports
Every good homebuilder doesn't wind up scared
Cause it's way more sturdy than the beach down there
And, hey, hey, I'm gonna need a rocky start
Hey, hey, I'm gonna need a rocky start

I wanna build a great, white palace with stuff that lasts
So I can make a Taj Mahal and not a big sandcastle
Not with stubble, wood, or grass just like in First Corinthians 3
(I'll have a casa de Dios, uh huh)
I'm gonna bless my house with the greatest plans
He said in John 14:2 there's plenty more mansions
Decorate with silver, gold, and precious stones provided for me
(So how you gonna do it?)
I'm gonna change change this life before it's in flames
I'll even call Ty here to trade my space

And we'll wipe out all the private rooms
Where we had addictions buried in their painted tombs
I guess you never think this but in a while
Everybody's gettin' dug deeper once we've died
Well, hey, hey, I'm gonna need a rocky start

I'm gonna seize that stone that the builders rejected
Gonna pass all codes when it gets inspected
Let washed-up sinners try to mock my song
They're sinkin' in the mire because they built it wrong

Matthew 7:24-25
"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock."
