Inspired by Jon Cross; hear his music under the band name Miscellaneous Plumbing Fixtures on Bandcamp or Spotify, or follow his After Movie Diner podcast. On Twitter at @MiscPlumbFix or @AfterMovieDiner.



Let me tell you about a musician I know
A most friendly sort and all-round fine fellow
His name is Jon and he goes with the flow
But there's one thing he has a hard time letting go...


The evil ones are everywhere
In offices low and high
Their human facades cover up
The cruel monsters who lurk inside

Jon thinks about the films he loves
Where all it takes to ring a demon's bell
Is a foolhardy man with a big shotgun
Who can blast it right back to hell


But in real life there is only one way
That Jon can fight the monsters of today


He won't use a gun, that's the tool of his foe
You can't vanquish demons by stooping down low
His voice and his uke seem more apropos
He'll let music and common sense strike the death blow


There is something fun about a horror flick
With blood and quips galore
Where monsters openly claim their goal
To end humanity forevermore

The monsters Jon fights against love to lie
And some dumb folk buy right in
When faced with a human as bad as a devil
Jon knows the best way to win


Because in real life there's only one way
That Jon can fight the monsters of today
