Vanity

We race to work then home again
The less we make the more we spend
It doesn't matter what we do 
We can't take it when life is through
But still we want the next big thing
We save it, hoard it, stash and cling
Each idle treasure we pursue
We can't take it when life is through

But there's a revolution coming
To stop all the insanity
A challenge that we recognize
These things are only vanity!
These things are only vanity!
 
Men before us fought for land
To use in ways God never planned
Earth that wasn't theirs alone
No territory's ever owned
Now look at us, nothing has changed
Only our methods rearranged
To fit the latest fad and craze
Could this be the End of Days?

'Cause there's a revolution coming
To stop all the insanity
A challenge that we recognize
These things are only vanity!
These things are only vanity!


Check your heart, look to your soul
Is it really "well" within?
If there be one thing keeping you
Away from God it's surely sin
 Get rid of all that would obscure
The grace of Him who sets you free
Let loose the binds of earthly things
For all of that is Vanity!

Yes, there's a revolution coming
To stop all the insanity
A challenge that we recognize
These things are only vanity!
These things are only vanity!
