C.R.E.A.M. (Cash ruins everything around me) as you've probably guessed is my remix of the RZA produced 1993 classic by Wu Tang Clan.


A guy I once knew would always preach about investments
Always checking out his pension while chuffing on a Benson
A slave to the coin like saving was a requirement
The irony is the smoke killed him by retirement
It all went back in the box his savings got left
I try to figure out the thoughts he must've had before his death
He sacrificed everything always thinking about the pennies
And the future that he wanted but didn't make any memories
He missed the whole journey obsessed with success
Never savoured life's flavours just consumed with the stress
Everyday that he wasted he was closer to the end
Bitter and lonely slowly drifted from his friends
So we're those thoughts before he died full of panic and regret
Or was he that much of a robot that he had no human left
On the other hand he could've kept up with the Jones'
Maxed out credit cards and multiple loans'
A bunch of neoliberals feeling kind of pitiful
When nothing trickles down we feel we've been ridiculed
I'm paying back Wonga with manikins 
One arm, one leg but that's all they're fucking having 
Chasing a myth of these war monger pigs
Addicted to the skrilla the dream to be rich 
Fuck all the 'isms the economic system
Power and corruption recycles more victims 

Cash ruins everything around me 
Cream fuck the money 
This life isn't real no
Cash ruins everything around me 
Cream fuck the money 
This life isn't real no
David Cameron trying to shag his daddy's piggy bank
But it's just not happening like trying to have a pilly wank 
Off shore tax havens freeze their fucking savings 
And distribute evenly for good causes fuck enslavement
