    ****... I know we've talked about this before... I hate the fact that you need money to survive in this world and that it seems like everyone is out trying to stop you from getting it... or trying to take it away before you can even hold it... the american dream really is debt, or that's how we manifest it....

    Snake it through the matrix
    how ever you gotta make it
    cream -the flavor I try to taste it
    covet and even chase it

    elusive american dream
    the original theme not meant for me
    melanine with hue in skin
    precurse the exclusion to every degree

    from cashless to credit societies
    new worlds in order for combining quarters
    enlisted to replace with credits and debits
    like cloning your future sons and daughters

    tha' don said it -and its one extension
    of systematic trends ascending
    when individuals lose sight of the inning
    financial ruin only begins the ending

    debtors court with flirtatious sorts
    of trickery to get in that ***
    and leave you unable to participate
    steady getting raped by the upper class ....til' you all out of gas.

    Soldja told ya'...I'm seconding the motion
