Profit processes robbing me of progress
Next I’ll be dead with the debt crises
Life cycles from Isis
Seen empires decline and fallen kings like Darius
My presence priceless, recognises the real value
The intangible, success through one’s eyes is always bias
At times unattainable
Remain righteous through never ending compromises
In the minus, physically eroding
As a lifespan rolls, memories are growing
And following, I’ll be left with no assets
No regrets, no time wasted and no distress
(Values can’t be placed upon)
The vastness of space and its elementary flavours
(Prices can’t be put on)
The abundance of nature and the material it gave us
The beast of man creeps the land, from throwing spears
To pyramids built to pierce Horus in the wingspan
Rich in my thoughts ripple like water
With every breath I hold success in my hands

I just spent all my coin on memories, memories
I just spent all my coin on memories, memories

I rely on re collections
Tryna gather and accumulate experiences
To keep myself wealthy in the psyche
Debt is like a shadow sneaking up behind me
See content-ness has gone commercial
Some people live their purpose
Just to keep money spinning in a circle
In a worldwide circus
(These memories)
Spent on a small surplus
Never made cents
Never had credit
Always a dash
In front of my digits
Cash neo-classic
How can I trust something holographic?
Uh, I stay away from the madness
Stick to my own values anonymously
See what the future promises – nothing concrete
I won’t invest in an ominous dream
Test the new century, new sense of urgency
Peace of mind may increase or decline
I’m rich in my thoughts, ripple like water
Intertwined to leave the moment behind

I just spent all my coin on memories, memories
I just spent all my coin on memories, memories
