But instead paying rent
Money spent
Money lent
Money ends a couple friends

from Asher Roth (Ft. Nico Segal) – Get By Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Instead of living the good life, he’s paying the rent worrying about the amount of money he spends, and afraid he isn’t going to get the money he lent out.

In these instances, money has such a significant importance that if its not used properly, it could cut the ties that one has with other people.
