    Satisfied living in rat infested confines
    Prisoner of our own ignorance
    Reading is fundamental
    But we refuse
    The government
    Bribes us with welfare and cheese
    Telling us don’t work
    We’ll flip the bill
    Then years later
    Pull it from under you
    After you forget
    That you were supposed to advance
    Now we become satisfied
    With the burnt out buildings
    No grass or trees
    They don’t grow here anymore
    Whitey took away the seeds
    Standing on the corner
    Brothas selling blow
    While sistas giving blow
    We’ve become satisfied
    Bush giving the country a payoff
    IRS check in the mail
    Makes no difference to us
    Down here we don’t file
    Cause we become satisfied not having to work
    Killing each other off
    Becoming junior mob
    Tools of government
    Long-term plan
    Get them addicted
    They’ll kill each other off
    There’s a new pharaoh in the land
    That knew not God
    We honor no deity
    But the AK and Tech 9
    Licensed applied for sticker
    In beat up old Chevy Caprice
    Satisfied
    Keep the children home from school
    Because it’s too dangerous in the classroom
    Metal detectors
    Searching for contraband
    But they don’t work
    Someone stole the batteries
    Don’t matter cause kids won’t be nothing
    Cause you ain’t nothing
    Slow
    Can’t learn
    Just be satisfied
