And we’ll strive hard and stress about the rent
Probably still die poor and in debt without a cent but
All the time, energy and effort put into your work may not get you anywhere in this system.
As Ali says in another track off of this album, “You’ll never get caught up, you’re caught up in a cycle.”
It’s also a reference to his own song “Chain Link”
