We pay a fare to rent space in this cab.
We pay admission to rent space in that theater.
We pay for tickets to rent space in this stadium.

We pay membership fees to rent space in this club.
We pay dues to rent space in that union.
We pay income tax to rent space in this market.

Let go of the fantasy that you deserve the right to occupy a space for free
And search for the rent you can afford that feels like home.
And Know the only space you can ever hope to own is inside your head.
