"TRUE TEST"

Verse 1
I find myself thinkin' and wonderin', "What do I really want?"
I find myself wishin' that I was given a lot more then I've got.
It's really kinda silly, and I'm ashamed to say this even entered my mind,
But I can be tempted, and I can think and wonder 'bout thoughts of this kind.

Verse 2
On a good day, it's clear to me that I should do more then just feed myself;
But on a bad day, I start thinkin', "What's wrong with just bein' like everyone else?"
It's plain to see it's clear to me that I cannot keep what I can't use,
But if I give what I can't keep, then I'll gain what I can't lose.

Chorus 1
True test of my
Values. Where do I stand?
Is my house on the rock, or is it
Sinkin' in sand? Can I
See the big picture? Can I
See what's to come? Is my
Treasure in Heaven? Or am I
Blind, deaf, and dumb?

Verse 3
Maybe I've been tempted, and maybe I've wanted to have more fun,
But when I stop and think about it, and after all is said and done,
I've lived like a millionaire, can't compare to most people I know.
And even if I hadn't, can't leave my destiny-I know I can't go.

Chorus 2
True test of my
Values. Where do I stand?
Is my house on the rock, or is it
Sinkin' in sand? Can I
See the big picture? Can I
See what's to come? Is my
Treasure in Heaven? Or am I
Blind, deaf, and dumb?

Verse 4
So I take it on the chin, I take it with a grin,
Then haul my fist in the Bad Boy's face.
May try to tempt me, may try to please me
With a line of luxury legs in lace.
But I am no deserter, I am no flirter with the riches of this world.
Take a hike, Punk! I'm gonna junk you along with your material girl. Huh!

Chorus 3
True test of my
Values. I know where I stand.
My house is on the rock, not
In the stinkin' sand. Can I
See the big picture? Yes, I
Can see what's to come. My
Treasure's in Heaven, not a
Mere earthly sum.

Chorus 4
True test of my
Values. I know where I stand.
My house is on the rock, not
In the stinkin' sand. Can I
See the big picture? Yes, I
Can see what's to come. My
Treasure's in Heaven, not a
Mere earthly sum.

True test.
