    Lyrics: Theory of a Deadman – Affluenza

    [Verse 1: THEORY]
    Went to school, they made fun of my clothes
    Had a matching shirt and slacks, yeah, my mom made those
    Rich kids smiling ear to ear
    Catch ‘em saying, “Smells like broke in here”
    I’m getting paid but it’s hard to flex
    When you ain’t got four zeros at the end of your checks
    My dad worked hard for a roof overhead
    He never got us gifts, he gave us love instead

    [Verse 2: THEORY]
    Never swore, yeah, I grew up right
    I always dreamed of a better life-uh
    Ethan Couch killing people with his binge, yeah
    He got stricken with the affluenza
    SoundCloud rapper, all silver and gold
    But he ain’t got enough to buy a soul
    Get them Yeezys and cars for cash
    Ain’t got a dollar to wipe his ass

    [Chorus: THEORY]
    We’re just buying things, we can’t afford and
    Barely getting by, should we thank the Lord for
    All the things that we don’t have
    We’re all so broke, yeah, face the facts, yeah

    [Verse 3: THEORY]
    Clippin' coupons for a family of four
    Minimum wage don’t cut it anymore
    Single parents shopping clearance for a brand name
    So you can fit in and pretend you’re doing okay
    Remember growing up for it makes you strong
    Things are just things you won’t miss when they’re gone, yeah
    We’re up against the sharp edge of a knife
    But tell me (hey)
    Ain’t that the life

    [Chorus: THEORY]
    We’re just buying things, we can’t afford and
    Barely getting by, should we thank the Lord for
    All the things that we don’t have
    We’re all so broke, yeah, face the facts, yeah

    [Bridge: THEORY]
    We’re all on welfare
    We’re all on welfare

    [Verse 4: THEORY]
    Fourteen and there was nothing that could phase me
    When the worst thing in life was a brain freeze
    Look, Ma, no hands on my 10-speed
    Ghost riding down the street by the Mickey D’s
    I’m waving at planes like they see me
    Telling wild stories like you'd ever believe me
    Couldn’t pay a cop enough just to chase me
    Yeah, we never had a penny when you raised me

    [Bridge: THEORY]
    We’re all on welfare
    We’re all on welfare
    Ain’t that the life
    Ain’t that the life, uh
    Ain’t that the life
    We’re all on welfare
    Ain’t that the life
    Ain’t that the life, uh

    [Chorus: THEORY]
    We’re just buying things, we can’t afford and
    Barely getting by, should we thank the Lord for
    All the things that we don’t have
    We’re all so broke, yeah, face the facts
    Diamond rings adhere to flaws that
    Our life shouldn't have to broadcast
    All the things that we don’t have

    [Bridge: THEORY]
    Ain’t that the life
    Ain’t that the life, uh
    Ain’t that the life
    Ain’t that the life, uh
    Ain’t that the life
    Ain’t that the life, uh
    We’re all on welfare
    Ain’t that the life
    Ain’t that the life, uh
    Ain’t that the life
    Ain’t that the life, uh
    Ain’t that the life
    Ain’t that the life, uh
    We’re all on welfare
