    Common sense? Naw common scents when you open
    The front door on the 25th floor to smell the scent of
    Life covered in death and you wonder how it could float
    This high or was it meant to dwell on the lower level
    Where the low and weakly resides trying to duck the
    Buckets of excuses you drop on their head when you
    Claim you gonna come back for them…

    Well now you movin on up to da east side of hell cuz
    You seems to forget that where you came from is closer
    To where you dwell than you ever thought. Did you think
    That the pigmentation of your heritage could ever be over-
    Looked by the pig-mentality that follows you close when
    You trying to get home at night in a neighborhood built for
    The same ones who portrayed Satan in an Armani suit?

    Oh if you don’t know what I’m talking about it’s okay
    Just sit back for a minute, take a smoke from your cancer
    Conscious reason for existence, make sure your pants drag
    Nice and deep and don’t forget to slip something in your
    Pocket when you walk through the store and you will soon
    Find out how easy it is to be a part of the common sense;

    I struggle to wonder where reality dwells cuz when I see two
    Superficial tribes willingly going hungry for twelve weeks,
    Sleeping outside in junk built tents, covered in plastic tarps
    When the rains come, cold and sore, tired and frustrated, all
    For the sake of a million bucks that will only be a couple
    Hundred thousand that will be spent on that brand new Jag
    They gonna drive through the old neighborhood with to prove
    They’ve arrive…puhleeeze;

    Survivor 3 needs to be in the middle of an “Urban renewal”
    District with each tribe having African American names and
    Their goal is to try to survive without a job, without a home,
    Without food, without a chance and then try to dance at night
    With the leaders of the 4-H club: hookers, heroin, hot boys,
    Homicide…

    And the winner is….
