Intro: Bm / Bm / Bm / Bm
              Bm            Bm
Things change fast but this too shall pass
       D                               G
Better carve it on your forehead or tattoo it on your ass
              Bm            Bm
Cause who can tell when the clock strikes twelve
     D                                G
If today's become tomorrow or if it's all just gone to hell
                Bm        Bm
My friend makes rings she swirls and sings
        D                                    G
She's a mystic in the sense that she's still mystified by things
              Bm          Bm
But scared to ask how can nothing last
             D                      G
Cause like a cancer in your body it all just goes too fast.

Bm / Bm / Bm / Bm

             Bm               Bm
We think too big we think our self is one whole thing
       D                                G
And we claim that this collection has a name and is a being
           Bm              Bm
But deep inside when every cell divides
   D                                   G
It sets upon the rule that states self-interest is divine
        Bm                 Bm
Cancer too lives by this golden rule
              D                         G
That you must do unto the others as the others unto you
            Bm                             Bm
All for the best cause that's all the life accepts
          D                           G
And so we kill it like a buffalo with awe and with respect.

Bm / Bm / Bm / Bm

          Bm       Bm
Don't ask God just holler at the sky
       D                             G
She'll tell it to you plainly in the clouds that whisper by
               Bm              Bm
And praise the shapes and then praise the way they change
            D                                  G
And they'll teach you not to pray to light without you pray to rain
             Bm                  Bm
So I pray to hands and I pray to needs
      D                                  G
And I pray to blades of grass to find forgiveness in the weeds
           Bm            Bm
But as for health I just never did believe
         D                             G
And so I never prayed myself except to those that prayed for me.

Bm / Bm / Bm / Bm

          Bm          Bm
The story goes or the way that I was told
            D                                  G
There was a king that always felt too high and then he fell too low
          Bm             Bm
And so he called all the wise men to the hall
    D                                 G
And begged them for a gift to end the rises and the falls
               Bm         Bm
And here's the thing they came back with a ring
       D                          G
It was simple and was plainly unbefitting of a king
            Bm       Bm    
Engraved in black it had no front or back
               D                                    G
But there were words around the band that said just know: This Too Shall Pass
