Things of This World - dc Talk

From the album 'Nu Thang'

Lyrics:

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

[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

[chorus x2]

Don't lay up your treasures upon this Earth
They'll soon pass away
And all return to dirt [x4]

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 [x2]

From the album 'Nu Thang'

Lyrics:

(intro)
Ya know he's doin' it
God is doin' a nu thang
Ya know he's doin' it
God is doin' a nu thang
Ya know he's doin' it
God is doin' a nu thang
Ya know he's doin' it
God is doin' a nu thang

My God is doin' a brand nu thang
But, since time began, he remains the same
Faithful, forever to his word
And solid, a cornerstone unstirred
But, look down through the ages and you will find
God doesn't change, but he knows the time
From harp to piano, and song to rap
Ya know, god's wit us, so we can not lack and so

(chorus)
God is doin' a nu thang
In our lives so...
We're doin' a nu thang
Through jesus christ
God is doin' a nu thang
Through our music
We're doin' a nu thang
So he can use it

God's usin' this music and we're comin' strong
Dc talkin', often singin' a song
To make ya think twice 'bout the way thatcha live
And, let ya know christ is the one that'll give
Peace in ya heart, a nu start
Call on the lord, and he'll do his part
A brand nu thang to ya raggedy walk
He might just match it up to that big ol' talk

(repeat chorus)

(bridge-repeat intro)

Like an mc, I'm here to boast
I rap about christ, yo here's a dose
So loud and proud of the God I serve
Try to say he ain't wit it...huh, ya got nerve
Christ is the reason for dc talk
He's the focus of our daily walk, y'all
Without him, we ain't nothin' but names
But through god, we're doin' brand nu thangs

(repeat chorus)

God is doin' a nu thang
We're doin' a nu thang [5x]
