In Their Words: “Debt has been my constant companion throughout my adult life. It feels like anytime I get a little bit ahead, it’s only for the purpose of paying down a loan. I struggle with shame surrounding financial debt, but this song is about the kind of debt that should be condemned, moral and ethical debt; taking, and taking, and taking, and never giving back. The narrator has lived their whole life off of the backs of others, and they know it.” — Rachel Baiman
