    they got me chasing after money that don't exist
    debt
    it's on paper
    cats with calculators calculate a way to make a real dollar off a dollar faker
    and you know they they say “trust god he's your maker,”
    “blind is how he made ya”
    welcome to slave labor
    where slaves on good behavior get
    ipods, iphones, headphones, beats, son
    flat screens, fly rides everybody needs one
    you'll just need that
    education
    then you'll need time off for vacations
    and free time to raise them kids you'll be raising
    to place them within the same rat race you're racing
    sometimes i wanna cry too
    tell me what did i do?
    got a diploma
    rather, i got an owner
    i've been lied to
    they asked: "what would that provide you?"
    "if you followed your heart,”
    “if you follwed the art,”
    “if you followed everything that is inside you,”
    “you might be wise too,”
    “true,”
    “but you'll be poor,”
    “and when they shove you out the door,”
    “just don't let that shit surprise you."
    now i'm the dumbest smart cat that i know
    i rather die young dirt poor
    and know i gave my dream a shot
    it would just mean a lot more
    than any high grade that i could ever score
    but it's too late
    because i already did it
    and when i said i did it i really mean i didn't
    why would i try?
    i mean really, are you kidding?
    i rather die than keep living how i'm living
    fuck the money
    if it never comes i'll never care
    cuz when i'm chasing dough the happiness is never there
    i'm never scared to put my time where it needs to be
    fuck the debt cuz they will never get a piece of me
    i'm at peace with my decision to live peacefully
    and to treat others with a sense of common decency
    and to pursue my dreams because of what it means to me
    i don't live for the money
    i live for better reasons see
    my skills, my body, my soul, my will cannot be purchased
    they dangling their trinkets because it makes for obedient workers
    but i'm nobody's servant
    this universe gave me purpose
    and my purpose is to spread word that it is worthless
    to pursue all of these things when all it does is just hurts us
    to remain at the surface
    when that which will save us
    just lies so much deeper
    but all our behavior
    is guided towards hatred, division and competition
    i just need to follow my love; make it my mission
    stop wishing on a star find the star within
    make the world a better place allow me to begin
