Witt Lowry - Debt Lyrics




[Dia Frampton:]
Why do you let us hate one another just for the dollar?
Did you lose your heart in the darkness, deep in your pocket?
No, I don't care of the price I'd pay
I don't wanna spend my life that way
Tell me is the pain that you're causin' worth what you profit?

[Witt Lowry:]
Yeah, they say that money don't buy happiness, just beautiful things
But I wouldn't mind the extra time and piece of mind that it brings
I wouldn't mind if I could afford AC in the spring
Or for the heat in the winter, I'd be in bitter but they live like kings
And here we are in one bedroom we could barely afford
Hang your sheets up on the walls just to mimic the doors
Can barely afford to pay for a Ford, why you pay for your Porsche?
See, where I'm from nobody makes it to Forbes
And I'm so tired of this dead-end job
While I was workin' last night, my fuckin' car got robbed
There's glass everywhere, I'm searchin' for the things I lost
All the things I bought
You steal from me just to cut your cost
My mom's worked her whole life just to get me a life to live
So I spilled my fuckin' soul and gave everything I could give
I think we can agree that Sallie Mae is a bitch
And there's gotta be more to life than this
Why do you let us—

[Dia Frampton:]
Why do you let us hate one another just for the dollar?
Did you lose your heart in the darkness, deep in your pocket?
No, I don't care of the price I'd pay
I don't wanna spend my life that way
Tell me is the pain that you're causin' worth what you profit?

[Witt Lowry:]
Yeah, another day, another bill, barely hatin' how I feel
Need a tax refund just to buy a fuckin' meal
Your follows on your social's essential for signin' deals
Man, it's crazy how a fake affects a room full of real
My boss told me, "Turn tables," I told him tables would turn
When I'm laughin' at what I make in a day is more than you earn
The waiters start to laugh like to mention that is absurd
But they never focus their vision, their vision focus is blurred
And they think I'm out of my mind, or ahead of my time
Or I'm the one that grinds and puts himself on the line
To learn how to win, you have to lose a hundred times
Honestly, I think that losin' is better than not tryin'
They say, "Make money, don't let the money make you"
The question is, what if it's the only thing to save you?
Would you sell your soul for a price if they paid you?
Or would you keep it real and stay you?
Why do you let us—

[Dia Frampton:]
Why do you let us hate one another just for the dollar?
Did you lose your heart in the darkness, deep in your pocket?
No, I don't care of the price I'd pay
I don't wanna spend my life that way
Tell me is the pain that you're causin' worth what you profit?

[Witt Lowry:]
Yeah, I know that money don't buy happiness, but buys you more material shit
Then rewordin' how I'm thinkin' what it means to be rich
I used to think it meant to flex a Rolex on my wrist
Feels bad to take more than you give
Lately, hate how we live
I never want become the face that I hate
When the man in the mirror will laugh and spit in my face
They tell me that the money has made me another fake
I've been drownin' in my mind and my money's been adding weight
Oh Lord, oh Lord, please save me
I should have known that somethin' man-made couldn't make me
I say I'm makin' music, or is music what creates me?
I never have an answer, same question every day
See, when we pass on, all our things are passed on to the next
Everything we didn't do is everything we regret
Everyday we fuckin' work for this worthless check
If you're not happy, you're forever in debt
You're forever in debt

    Why do you let us hate one another just for the dollar?
    Did you lose your heart in the darkness,  deep in your pocket?
    No, I don't care of the price I'd pay

  10. Mário Júnior

    This song is really touching. Keep doing this Witt

  11. TZ-BURNS

    I think this is the song most people relate to in this album and it’s scary

  12. lisa averill

    People are worth more than all the money in the world

  13. Ryan Jones

    One of my favourite songs from the album, absolutely love that fucking hook! Rapping about debt is the opposite of what we hear nowadays. Amazing. 🔥

    I’m a 20 year old rapper from the UK and if you love storytelling in rap, you’ll love my new mixtape, Capricorn.

    I promise you won’t be disappointed.

  14. Carmen Montoya

    Real in every word he speaks. I'm here for the things he says that keeps me from moving and alive.

  15. Shadoum

    "if you arent happy, you are forever in debt" Damn

  16. Jordan B

    I love this guy so much. No homo 😂😂😂

  17. Lil Boussie

    Why do I feel like FaZe Jev is gonna use this song in Forjever 4 if it ever releases?

  18. Brian Smith

    Is There a Double LIKE Button Anywhere?!?!

  19. Brian Smith

    TOO UNDERRATED!!!!

  20. Armand Du Preez

  25. Bison

  26. Isabella Puff

    I told my friends that Witt Lowery and NF were my favorite artists and they didn’t know who they were.

    Eduardo A

  27. johny bonny

  28. MistaKman

    Waiting for what? Do you not see the million of views the man has lol.

  29. Chris Norman

    You both killed it, that was epic! Can't wait for the video! Stay grinding stay blessed!

  30. Dalton Davis

    The words of this song hit like something I’ve never felt before. I know this pain. I watched my father become an alcoholic and spend his life drinking his life away. I saw the anger. I saw the hatred he felt. I vowed to never become that. I would never touch a bottle of booze. At 15, I started doing pills to cope with a lot of shit I saw my dad put my mom and myself through.. I quickly became an addict for the pills. 8 years later and I still can’t kick the habit. When Witt says, “Tell my mom I’m sorry.” I immediately tear up. Because I promised my mom that I would never become what my father is. And I broke that promise. Ugh.


    Thank you, Mark. Thank you for putting what I feel into the words I’d never be able to find!

  31. Ay yo

    Ive been listening to Witt since I was 14,I'm 22 now, and I can honestly say he is the most underrated dope artist I've ever came across.

    Ay yo

    Besides K.A.A.N I should say K.A.A.N is easily the most underrated closely followed by witt

  32. Mike Avi

    Just so you know Witt. The 45 or so dislikes... Just people who missed the thumbs up button. Atleast i did, just noticed anyways though. #corrected #ThumbsUp

  33. iidoodooiix WHO ELSE

    Dude..Your concert in Denver was Amazing thx so much for it! Much love

  34. z a y

    Hardd🔥i really wanna see u in atlanta again, i saw ur i could not plan this show and met u ♥️

  35. Victor Murimi

    The worst part is when the chorus didnt play one more time after the 3rd verse and you kept hoping..😢

  36. Justin Gathright

    👍!👍!👍!👍!

  37. Aundrea Kym

    OMG, I got tickets to see him in Denver and I was waiting to get the VIP upgrade for him because I wasn't sure if I was going to be in the country or if I would be in Costa Rica when he was here and I had planned on getting it later and I f*cking FORGOT to get the VIP upgrade! I am so f*cking sad, I have a dope ass gift for him and everything, he's my favorite rapper! Maybe I'm just gonna go and bring a couple extra hundred dollars to try and bribe my way into a last minute upgrade, the worst that could happen is that I can't and it's too late....

    If you see this Witt, pleaaaasssseeeee sell at least ONE more VIP upgrade in Denver. I'll pay double since I waited til the last minute like a fricken' retard, but pleeeeaaaasssseeeee let me buy one more ticket so I can come stalk you at your show! Plus later it'll be helpful if we have a photo coz you'll be able to make copies like, "Yeah that's her, she's not to come within forty feet of me or anyone in my entourage..." while I'm like, "As soon as this BIG misunderstanding gets cleared up, I'm pretty sure they're going to lift the restraining order...I mean, I bet he has his people working on it right meow...he's probably so pissed, watch, maf*ckas are gonna lose their jobs over this sh*t, dude, he TOTALLY wanted me there, I could tell from the way he kept pointing at me to security..."

  38. Munopa C Nyoni

    Another day another bill.... S/O from Zim🇿🇼. #AfriCulture✌

  39. tcg guru

    "Something man made cant make me"
    Just.....damn.......thats that's real deep god I hope you are ok witt you're a badass

    Bison

    cyser for god and country
    My point was
    Everything that was created.
    The things you named wasn’t made by anyone, they formed as result of being under the right circumstances.

    tcg guru

    @Bison god made them in my opinion and even if you don't believe in God that point falls through because if it wasn't created it wouldn't exist

    Bison

    cyser for god and country
    That doesn’t make any sense, just because you believe it was created doesn’t mean it was created.
    You can’t make a point out of your faith and think it’s valid.

    tcg guru

    @Bison if you had read I went on to explain that even without god your points don't make sense

    Bison

    cyser for god and country
    My point is that there’s no god
    You’re so fucking slow

  40. Steven Fitzgerald

    Portland concert was so AWESOME! Definitely hope to see him again. So humble so appreciative. TEAM WITT

    iidoodooiix WHO ELSE

    I went to Denver concery

  41. Shane Dupree

  42. Andrew Weaver

    Unrelated but I'm kinda wanting a witt and post malone song

  43. williamlesterll

    True words n true feeling for millions around the globe ...this is music 🔥🔥🔥🔥..

  44. Jessica Smith

    Have you ever notice that this world teaches us the wrong lessons, all these laws and rules dont mean a damn thing when you die or when your alive. If you want to be honest we're not doing what we are truly ment too, but people wont realise that because they enjoy what the world teaches us.

  45. Titanic Kat

    Reminds me of my ex girlfriend she just left me just because “she was too good for me”

  46. Admire Sewada

    I want a video for this song😭

  47. JohnWick StuckintheMatrix

    I’m gonna get this song to a million views by myself #teamwitty til the death of me.

  48. messygenerics

    i'm gonna stream this album as much as i can, witt deserves SO much more than he has

  49. █████

    28 people just found out they except to be a sheep n chained to material n drug life....

  50. Kim Gow

    The industry is not like it used to be. You see so many artists that deserve to be noticed but are not bc of technology. Honestly the fan support artist now by buying their stuff or they sell their soul and live w demons an Satan takes over frfr

  51. Jake C

    he debuted at #84 on billboards top 200 first time in top 100

  52. TheWolvirine25

    I’m currently trying to find out what I really want from my life, I’m 21 confused as shit about what I’m doing and where I want to go and these songs mean more to me than anything right now. They’re keeping me sane and have me looking back on kid me, back when I didn’t have all these pressures to be a certain thing to look “successful”. That line if you’re not happy you’ll always be in debt. That hits home. Idk if any of y’all feel the same but this type of music Witt and NF are helping me so much mentally with all the shit I’m going through.

    Zach Buller

    Also 21, fucking same man.

    Brylle Madriagaaa

  65. Sara Barragan

    Witt <3, when are you coming to Denver??

  66. Kevin Moser

    I find such a peace within every last beat of this song but cant figure out why honestly

  67. Kayla Fleetwood

    Dope song! "When I'm gone" from Eminem was the inspiration for this one…

  81. Joshy1995 Joshy

    This man still makes me strong even when I feel low I got you bro team Witt

  82. TheButtonMash3r

    It's easy to say money is everything when you have none, and it's easy to say it isn't when you have it all.

  83. Lucifer EGC ShadowG

    Pfv? Collab would be fuckin lit 🔥

  84. ThisGuyIsTrippy

    Witts just throwing new songs at us, I love it

  85. Jackson West

    Great song!

  86. Dalton Davis

    This whole album was amazing and I related to it so fucking much. But this song.. this song here I related to the most. I’ve never had shit. I hate hearing, “Money don’t buy happiness.” Yeah well happiness doesn’t come from paying your bills every week and still being behind. Or moving back home with my parents cause I can’t afford to live alone at 24. Or not having a car cause it broke down and I can’t afford to fix it. Thank you for this song Witt. It hit home.

  87. MARVIN_WLY

    He is giving what eminem couldn't give us for the last 5 years witt big love to you 1 day you gonna be the best rapper in this world i am sure ♥️🤘🤘

  88. rahul patel

  92. Jaki Pesonen

    Ya should really make a song with eminem tho

  93. Commenting Duh

    Powerful lyrics 🔥

  94. Dallas Jones

    Witt absolutely killing it like always! 🔥👍 Great work.

  95. LyttleBreezy

    Every verse, every note, every song, and every album hits deep, so damn relatable and a huge inspiration.. this is one of the favourites though along with Alone on the album🔥
