Temporary Living

we live on this planet
we indulge in all of it
but what we dont know
none of this matters so

we focus on materials
we dont believe in miracles
were so caught up in stuff
we just cant get enough

theres something you should know
you cant take it with you
the cars and money too

the only thing we posses
is our soul and love, yes
the poor ones are the ones
who believe that life is about having tons

your soul is all you got
all the rest is gonna rot
because this world is temporary...
