    In the inner city in the urban jungle
    don't stumble
    you will be humbled
    uncoupled

    from your shear conscious
    in the metropolis
    i state the obvious
    STREET APOCALYPSE
    wit third eye watchin it

    heart frozen
    for a moment
    the human EXPLOSION
    you ain't supposing
    you ain't never been there but
    you be knowing
    that the streets keep going and going

    the rat race
    at this pace
    in such limited space
    on the street surface

    who's the quickest
    survival of the fittest
    eye on the riches
    it's hot in - Hell's Kitchen*
    ain't nothing you missing

    the scenario is played out in urbania on a daily basis
    murder cases
    home of the faceless
    get robbed butt naked
    leave it or take it

    2001
    so many wanna leave so many wanna come
    the great mecca is like a sponge
    swallow you up and your funds

    feel the concrete sidewalk buckle
    your voice muffles
    don't cry uncle
    when it happens in the urban jungle

    From Inside The Struggle

    *Hell's Kitchen is a neighborhood on the isle of Manhattan
