But, my homey Alice saw the whole thing as a challenge
She spent her dough and time on trying to equalize the balance
Her point was doing nothing was the same as doing malice
I personally thought her point was pretty valid

Meaning

Sandman’s close friend, Alice, wasn’t going to let the situation get the best of her. Nearly all of her time and spare cash went to organizing an effort to those affected by the earthquake. Her reasoning was that standing by and doing nothing was akin to causing the destruction that ruined so many lives in the first place. Sandman shared the same sentiment.
