"(Living) high on the hog" in lyrics

Stay focused, if you ain’t got no ride, your life ain’t wrapped up in what you drive
The clothes you wear, the job you work, the color your skin naw you Christian first
People get to livin for a job, make a little money start living for a car
Get ‘em a wife a house kids and a dog, when they retire they living high on the hog
But guess what? They didn’t ever really live at all, to live is Christ and that’s Paul I recall
To die is gain so for Christ we give it all, he’s the treasure you’ll never find in the mall

Lecrae - Don't Waste Your Life

to the dough he pockets
to lay them away in a mortgage
and if he sees a fellow
living high on the hog
he makes like deaf and dumb
and crosses the street.

Daniel Melingo - Cruel Hand
