What you hold b[Bb]ack from the [Eb]minute, the minute will [Fsus]lack
If you don't c[Bb]laim it from the h[Eb]our then the hour takes it b[Bb]ack
All our [Gm7]wants will pass q[Eb]uickly, what remains is our n[Bb]eed
And mama don't make no [Eb6]medicine that'll cure that dis[Bb]ease
[Bb]Nothing is [Eb]certain here in this w[Bb]orld
You [Gm7]drop all your t[Eb]reasures just like slippery pe[Bb]arls
Oh, it's hard to find a [Gm7]handle on the th[Eb]ings that you [Bb]see
Cause they slide right through your f[Eb]ingers just like slippery p[Bb]earls
What you don't lock up inside your heart the world will consume
It might slip right down the throat of greed
Or through the floorboards in your room
There's two thieves named pain and pleasure and neither one is true
You ransom your flesh to save your bones
Then they come and take those too
They don't make a map to guide you through the badlands of the soul
You could lose yourself to blind conceit or to the hunger for control
Try to guard it all from the elements and it's still gonna fall apart
Cause the world outside don't pose no threat
Like the darkness in our hearts
repeat CHORUS ad lib and fade
