I was about my money since my birth man
I was Oscar the Grouch in a church can
The church can is a reference to the collection plate passed around during church. One could say Heems doesn’t know the proper term because he isn’t Christian, but maybe he calls it a can and not a plate because he feels churches take more money than they should from the people and do a lot of shady things.
