The Only Tomorrow

He planted his crops and he watched them grow
Till he had no room to store.
So he tore down his barns and he told his soul,
"Take your ease, we'll build for more."
He worried for money and in his greed
To the poor and the helpless he paid no heed.
The only tomorrow he's guaranteed
Is the one from yesterday.

We meet, and we schedule, and make our plans
For a day we may not know.
And we practically live in our minivans;
We are always on the go.
We hustle and bustle, and in our speed
To our God and his warnings we pay no heed.
The only tomorrow we're guaranteed
Is the one from yesterday.
