In the year three thousand and thirty everybody wants to be an MC 
In the year three thousand and thirty everybody want to be a DJ 
In the year three thousand and thirty everybody want to be a producer 
In the year three thousand and thirty 
 Everybody want to tell ya the meaning of the music 
I must appeal to you people with your faculties  Cause everybody else is gonna laugh at me
 People try to get over and take a crack at me
The universe is one and I can see what rap can be glorious 
Put in the Smithsonian my podiums for holy hymns 
But you see who's controlling them
Fuck myself off 'cause of the egotistical mode I'm in
No I can't slap you no five
When you and your cutty is talkin' shit about me outside  People take pride in what they have no hand in
 Sorta like a phantom holographic handsome 
But deep inside he wants to do what his man done
Just because his peers jeer and and clown 
When your six foot deep no one hears you now
They say were not compatible like deers and cows and owls
So many rules and regulations say you're not allowed 
I'm caught in the grip of the city, madness [Repeat x4]
If I had to describe the way I survive its like vice squeezin'
The reason I'm black and still breathin
 Heathens will breed heathens so
Everybody's suspect I must check your ID  Cause you lookin sheisty you might be intelligence  Someone that Del's against  Opposite or positive 
When I drop the law against nature be faithful 
Why should I hate you we ain't that different 
We may act different in some ways
But we still grouped together like a fuckin' survey 
Sufferin' and fuck 'em all's the motto 
I'm trapped in a bottle 
My music's gettin' hollow 
That's what happens when humanity you follow  Where every leak or info is hard to swallow 
Sell your Marlboros and car insurance 
Put niggas on the moon and can't pay your burdens 
I smoke herb and rock a turban  Meditate on the world and what's occurrin'
A lot of white boys like the style and copy
Dig in something deeper and you'll peep that were not free
It's not about the separation its about the population 
I'm caught in the grip of the city, madness [Repeat x4]
 Simple minded people always point the finger 
To bring it to a close as if life is their role, their path
When all paths are intersections 
It all depends on the persons perception
When I'm mad as fuck you get shot
And to some it's bad luck
I believe you held something back for too long
It grew strong 
And energy got its own will
And people think they make music still
But music is there with out you or me we just manipulate 
For better or worse so let it situate 
I get to make records and dough 
Paid out the ass hole
And still seen as another face on the totem pole
Conquer, my sponsors are monsters 
And everybody thinks that I owe them one
I'm glad I love music and life 
 Cause it's easy to see the pain and strife and end it all tonight 
I'm caught in the grip of the city, madness [Repeat x4]
