Things Of This World

70 years is all we got

To accumulate goods that seem to mean a lot

For the first 20 years, you're off to school

Learnin' principles and learnin' the tools

To make lots of money, the ultimate goal

Gain the whole world and yet lose ya soul

Huh, humanism is on a roll

20 gets the the knowledge, 30 years to apply

And just 20 years left for askin' why

I didn't realize what it was all about

And, was there any use in this rigorous route because



(chorus)

Things of this world are passin' away

Here tomorrow, but they're sure not here to stay

Things of this world are passin' away

So lay your treasure above

And start to live for him today



All done for self in this world will pass

And all done for christ in this world will last

Sounds like a simple task...

But everyday life seems to get in the way

No time to serve, barely time to pray

Our focal points lost and we get tossed

In the wind, cold facing the cost

Of fallin' without stallin' or even callin' the lord

While you were blackballin'

He was waitin' for you to see the light

And find for yourself, these things are trite



(repeat chorus)



(vamp)



Our mind transforms a want to a need

A simple process that we call greed

Ya say ya like to have money, well i do too

The problem starts when the money has you

Workin' overtime to keep up with the pace

A lifestyle that you want to embrace

But it's 2 steps from where your needs are met

You're keepin' up with the joneses, but your all in debt

Which will lead to stress, not meeting the bills

While ya sportin' a benz with all the thrills

The domino effect's gotcha life in check

A temporary stitch and ya livin' a wreck



(repeat chorus 2x)



Don't lay up your treasures upon this earth

They'll soon pass away

And all return to dirt [4x]



Things of this world are passin' away

Here tomorrow, but they're sure not here to stay

Things of this world, things of this world

The things, the things, the things of this world



Don't lay up your treasures upon this earth

They'll soon pass away

And all return to dirt [2x]
