Trip Lee – Money Up Lyrics
[Pre-Hook]
Soon as I get paid
Yeah, we gon’ have it made
I put that on everything
I swear, I swear
Soon as I get paid
I’ma flip it two ways
And everything gon’ change
I swear, I …
[Pre-Hook]
Soon as I get paid
Yeah, we gon’ have it made
I put that on everything
I swear, I swear
Soon as I get paid
I’ma flip it two ways
And everything gon’ change
I swear, I …
Empty, how I want you Empty
Empty wind. Empty branches
The ship out on the sea
And the horse on the mountain
With the shade around her waist
She dreams on her balcony
Green flesh, her …
[Verse 1: Futuristic]
Yo, yeah
You outta know that I’m still planning to marry you
Walk into that big new house, I probably carry you
Honeymoon and all that
Look in your eyes, stare at …
[Intro]
Oo oo oo oo oo oo oo
[Verse 1]
And I’ve been looking for someone to put up with my bullshit
I can’t even leave my bedroom so I keep pouring
And I ain’t …
Wish that you could build a time machine
So you could see
The things no one can see
Feels like you’re standing on the edge
Looking at the stars
And wishing you were them
What do …
No one was crying
They simply got a little something in their eye
No one was lonely
They just could not get hold of anybody^{1}
Over the summer, a lot changed
And they all changed to keep up with it^{2}
Too complicated
Too complex to talk to anybody^{3}
Marks to prove it, got the marks to prove it (Rolling shadow)
Marks to prove it, got the marks to prove it (Fallen arrow)^{4}
All this is sky light^{5}
Forget that it’s there but it’s there, no doubt about it
Take a photo of it, come back years on^{6}
And wonder why you took it
Thousands of people
Tight lines and hopes the weather stays the weekend^{7}
Clouds and rain
And no one cares ’til they’ve got the marks to prove it^{8}
Marks to prove it, got the marks to prove it (Rolling shadow)
Marks to prove it, got the marks to prove it (Fallen arrow)
Marks to prove it, got the marks to prove it (Rolling shadow)^{9}
Marks to prove it, got the marks to prove it (Fallen arrow)
(Rolling shadows, fallen arrows)
Marks to prove it, got the marks to prove it (Rolling shadow)
Marks to prove it, got the marks to prove it (Fallen arrow)
Marks to prove it, got the marks to prove it (Rolling shadow)
Marks to prove it, got the marks to prove it (Fallen arrow)^{10}
The Maccabees, an indie rock band from London, introduce “Marks To Prove It” describing how people are not actually in situations they seem to be in.
These lines talk of how people changed in personality over the course of a summer.
Those who were once simple people are now quite complicated, according to The Maccabees.
These lines describe how people have chosen to enjoy themselves and to have a memory of what they did.
This line means that what these people are doing is just for formality.
These lines describe how people don’t pay mind to how their lives are or aren’t changing.
Tight lines refer to something extremely difficult to balance, presumably the hardships of life.
These lines describe how people enjoy themselves during summer without minding of the situations around them.
“Marks to prove it” refers to having a memory of an event, and in this case, of what takes place during summer.
This song encourages people to always put aside their problems and stress to enjoy themselves and make memories for the future.
