I don't do this for fame
I don't do this for fame
I don't do this for fame
I don't do this for the money
I don't do this for fame
I don't do this so the industry can know my name

I don't do this for the money
I don't do this for fame
I don't do this for fame
I don't do this for fame

I don't do this for the money
I don't do this for fame
I don't do this so the industry can know my name

That was much easier to say a couple dollars ago
That was much easier to say a couple albums ago
That was a piece of cake to say before I got on the road
Landing a record deal with Cross Movement was not in my goals

When I say that man I mean it - but I'm at war with myself
Due to the roars and the applause and the awards on my shelf
Plus the allure of more wealth - man I know what I store - it's gone melt
Sometimes I'm torn and so I'm drawn - back to the floors that I've knelt

But the closer I get to God - the more I know that it's nothing
All of my things and my achievements - man I wanna throw 'em in the oven
Burn 'em up - I'm hurt enough about the Jones' I covet
And I hate the fact that I want more of what I can't have like Ocean's Eleven

Though I'm known in the public - not a king when I walk in your service
I'm no better then my Lord - man I know then I'm only a servant
If you see me help with chairs don't tell me that I'm a king
I already know that but I gotta show that I ain't gotta wear diamond rings

Before I'm Truth man, I'm a Christian so I gotta grind on my knees
Basically, pick up a basin and start washin' some feet
Even if you feel the beat like some cops in the street
Please don't tell me I'm the best, I'm tryin' not to compete
All flesh is as grass
And the glory of man is at the flowers of the field
The grass withers and the flowers fade
But the word of the Lord endures forever

I'm here and I'm gone
That's why I take the time that I have
To proclaim the One who was glorious
The Lord Jesus Christ, who is indeed God
