"Millennium" as written by and Antwan Patton Andre Benjamin....
Me and everything around me, is unstable like Chernobyl
Ready to go at any moment, jumping like a pogo stick
Life never lived up to my expectations, so I accept the patience
Expect the worse but now I'm pacing, back and forth
Inside I'm melting like water on wicked witches
A monster truck done came and ran over my picket fences
I had the best of life in my clenches, but monkey wrenches was thrown
Like chairs kings sit on, my prayers seem to long
I fall asleep before the ending, don't even get to say Amen
I hope He understand I be on bended knees
At times, I think I'm crazy, then I say forget it
Or maybe it's the devil infiltrating and like Riddick Bowe
I've been fighting this since them fetus days
I count from one to twenty, when I'm through, repeat the phrase
It's just a phase, it's gon all pass, but that gets old too
I'm weakening like a deacon doing dirt
What am I supposed to do?

Uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh uh, uh uh uh uh uh (Planets and stars)
Uh uh uh uh uh, uh uh uh uh uh uh (Earth, Jupiter, Mars)
Uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh uh, uh uh uh uh uh (Hoes, clothes, cars)
Uh uh uh uh uh, uh uh uh uh uh uh (It's who you are)

See, from bed knobs to broomsticks, we looking to start some new shit
I'm writing this rhyme in faith, so when you hear it, hope you true it
My nigga, you do it like swooshes, the lyrical cleanse and new sense
Wiping away your germs and filling your cranium with juices
See Mo goes on, my slick flow flows on
Straight from west Savannah, Georgia, but the S.W.A.T.S. is my home
Never go wrong cause the click is tighter than gnat ass and that bad
Mosquito, now we goes, "I'm proud of you peoples
For selling your crack in sacks, I'm glad I'm white not Black"
Shit, on the real, that's how them whiteys really act
When your back was turned, them slackers learned and now we falling apart
You looking me in my eye, but you ain't feeling me in your heart
Yes, yes Lord, give me the power within the final hour
These niggas, they leaving me stranded like Rapunzel in the tower
Now or never, let's stick together and overcome
But they don't feel like marching, cause they shoes is overrun
Ain't that a bitch

Uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh uh, uh uh uh uh uh (Planets and stars)
Uh uh uh uh uh, uh uh uh uh uh uh (Earth, Jupiter, Mars)
Uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh uh, uh uh uh uh uh (Hoes, clothes, cars)
Uh uh uh uh uh, uh uh uh uh uh uh (It's who you are)

Planets and stars
Earth, Jupiter, Mars
Hoes, clothes, cars
It's who you are

Uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh uh, uh uh uh uh uh (Planets and stars)
Uh uh uh uh uh, uh uh uh uh uh uh (Earth, Jupiter, Mars)
Uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh uh, uh uh uh uh uh (Hoes, clothes, cars)
Uh uh uh uh uh, uh uh uh uh uh uh (It's who you are)

    Best damn visualization in a song EVER.
    I've felt the same way...at one point he had everything going his way including a girl/wife (picket fences) and it got demolished by a monster truck. He had the best of life in his clenches...

    General CommentI'm weakening like a deacon doin dirt

    Haha just caught this too, a shot out to a book most people read in high school, Nathaniel Hawthorne's Scarlet Letter.

    The deacon in a colonial community committed adultery with a woman he loved, and while she got branded with a scarlet A and basically ostracized from the community as a sinner, he couldn't tell and she wouldn't tell on him because she loved him.

    He starts breaking down physically under the weight of his sin and his guilt, even branding himself an A on his own chest. He ends up falling over dead as he reveals to the townfolk the truth in the end.

    General CommentReally can't believe I'm the first to comment here. This is arguably the best lyric performance on what is outkast's best multiplatinum album. I see the song as Andre and #BigBoi explaining there thoughts as life is moving quickly for them. The chorus is incredible for several reasons: Andre's simple chorus is perfect, he uses his voice as an instrument and fits perfectly with the poem being recited.
