"Green Heart" as written by Sameer Bhattacharya, James Culpepper, Jared Hartmann, Kirkpatrick Seals and Lacey Nicole Sturm....
Must cross, destroy all that you've built
Thieves break in and steal your green heart
My red heart turns white as snow
Every new dawn yours could would you know

All you own is gonna burn

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Let's lose it all
Buy something beautiful
What next will you sell?
Peace while you sleep

Small green heart
Engraved on a dollar bill
Tell me could it build a whole universe
Can it speak or answer your prayers like you hope it will

Let's lose it all
Buy something beautiful
What next will you sell?
Peace while you sleep

All you own is gonna burn

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

You're not just a body of flesh, bones and blood
You are alive, you're his precious child
And your soul will forever live on

Will forever live on

    My InterpretationThe first paragraph is full of Biblical references... the do not store up your treasures thing, forgiveness as washing your bleeding heart white as snow.

    The song seems very clearly to be about the nature of greed.

    Song MeaningI think it's about how much we rely on money and build so many buildings that'll just fall over froma ge and they won't matter then. It's about how God is more important then money because we live in a world where money is a focus and you must have it. Even if you do or don't have money you're Gods precious child and that no matter how much money you have or don't have you'll always have God and it won't fly away like monet tends to do.

    General CommentLove this song, but I think the first two words are 'moth rust,' that's what the bible verse is.
