I wrote the melody to “Treasure” but took the lyrics from a Sikh hymn from the Guru Granth Sahib that reminds us that “Ratan padhaarat maankaa, suinaa rupaa khaak,” that is, that all treasures, pearls, gold, and precious things ultimately turn to dust. The song is a meditation on consumerism and reminds me that I shouldn’t bother too much with material goods since they ultimately aren’t important. I also use a sample of a sarangi, an Indian violin.
