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
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]
