let us die, let us die!
in dying we reply
and lower our baskets down
into the open bed
of the fruit truck passing by
and we can smile at each other again
me and my cantelope friend
cast our cares at the couple of pears
put a blueberry garland on an apple bed
the apple threw our half baked fears
like a wooden shoe in the windmill gear
the turning stopped and we clearly saw
the flaws in that which finds the flaw
the strawberry said to the tangerine
"my face is red but our hats are green"
be it orchard or a curling vine
the son of yours is the Son that's my
God...

...

lettuce grows, lettuce grows
in neatly sectioned beds and rows
but one day asked the gardener
to be moved to where the eggplant goes
"reason being, i must confess
i adore her shining purple dress"
as the eggplant listened in
she wasn't offended but she wasn't impressed
the potato called from underground
"you've got it all turned upside down!
does the rain that sent each spring anew
to fall on her not fall on you?
you project on her your inward scene
she's a blank external movie screen
but the One who looks out from your eyes
looks through hers and looks through mine

we all well know
we're gonna reap what we sow
we all well know
we're all gonna reap what we sow
so may we old fashionably suggest
the unmarried not undress
we well know
we're gonna reap what we sow
we all well know
we're gonna reap what we so
we all well know
what kind of crops are gonna grow
from each time you disrespect your parents
you better hope we don't hear it
we who know
you're gonna reap what you sow
we all well know
we're gonna reap what we sow
but grace, we all know
can take the place of all we owe
so why not, let's forgive everyone everywhere everything
all the time everyone everywhere everything

all the time everyone everywhere everything

    General CommentAt first I thought he said "if you disrespect your carrots", but upon further inspection I do believe it to be "parents."

    General CommentI think there is no reason to believe that Aaron thinks salvation is only through Jesus.
    Unless he blatantly states that Jesus is God. What ever though, we should never expect him to believe
    everything we believe. He is his own being and not to be a slave to our beliefs.

    -----

    In the Bible Jesus never said worship me. He said only through me you can go to the
    Father because at that time who else was speaking of only truth? no one. That is
    also why he said let the dead bury their own dead to the man with a dead father.
    If the man left Jesus to attend his father he too would become spiritually dead
    because at that time Jesus was the only bearer of truth.

    When some people/disciples worshiped Jesus in a few texts in the new testament, the word "worship"
    had lost its original meaning through the translation of languages.
    The word worship in the Bible means to kneel before and also to a sacred service.
    In these cases where Jesus was worshiped in the new testament it was meant he
    was payed respect. One example is in Matthew 2:2


    I encourage everyone to research this, and believe in what you believe not because your parents
    believe it and the parents before them believed it as well. Test what is taught an look for truth.
    I used to worship Jesus, but now I worship God alone.

    General Commenti really like the end of this song. the whole idea of reaping what one sows, and tying that into forgiveness... "so why not forgive everyone, everywhere, everything, all the time..."

    aaron seems to be saying that if you forgive people, you will also be rewarded with forgiveness. and this is in line with the Lord's prayer - "and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us."

    General CommentI don't think that's similar at all. One of the reasons Jesus was crucified was because He used the phrase "I am". In Hebrew, that translates to Yahweh which is, of course, the name of God. Neither Mary nor Paul nor any other contemporary of Jesus claimed to be such. Whether you believe that Jesus was the Son of God or not, He certainly claimed to be.
