They say money equals freedom bro
Make you question everything you know
Is freedom really what you think it is
Want to go back when we were free as kids, hey
But they say money equals freedom tho
You need a job to be just over broke
Trade your time for, nickels and dimes or
Try to make a dollar that you don’t have time for
Life is like a roll of the dice, what they hitting for
Didn’t get the message about the world, what’s it hidden for
Always thought to myself/ that we in this just to help
Then they pulled the rug from up under me, and ask me what I’m tripping for
Maybe I’m just different bro/ maybe I’m just pissed
At the notion that it is ok that ignorance is bliss
Or if you go woke, you gotta go broke/So for minorities
Putting your own first will never be a priority
They say money equals freedom bro
Based on a basis of a need to know
They never taught you this in grammar school
They just condition us to act a fool
But they say money equals freedom tho
Gotta change the way we thinking bro
Go from consumers/ to connoisseurs
Re-educate to become Entrepreneurs
In this day and age fam/ you gotta have brand
All money ain’t good money, gotta have a plan
Don’t let them take you under, man you gotta overstand
The mentality, when everybody wants to be the man
In a system based on how well you remember then regurgitate
Wearing 2 brands in my day the called that perpetrate
Tell me how it feels to make a mil/ and still have higher ups
Can’t express how you really feel/ they will fire us/ but
They say money equals freedom tho
The way they talking don’t believe them bro
No, they try to make it seem so necessary
Can’t take it with you in obituaries hey
But they say money equals freedom tho
The way they talking, don’t believe them bro
Don’t believe them/ We don’t need them
If you buy in you can’t defeat them
Why he take a knee
Why he take a knee
Why he take a knee
Why he take a knee
Who the hell is he
To think that he can disrespect my flag
Nobody cares
Nobody cares
Nobody cares
About those names
You’re just here to entertain
And distract me from my real life cause it’s sad
Just shut up and play
Just shut up and play
Just shut up and play
Just shut up and play
We pay your salary, cause We are fans
So that means we own your ***
They say money equals freedom tho
The way they talking I don’t even know
How much it cost for you to sell your soul
And when it’s gone will you even Know, No
But they say money equals freedom tho
Yea you see em, time to let them know
You want freedom cause you don’t need em
Get your **** you money. And then you leave em
