"Step into the Projects" as written by and Meshell Ndegeocello....
She's darker than a child's deepest sleep
And into his mind she creeps 
In this world of lies and confusion
She's the only thing not clouded by illusions 
The pain of everyday life is hidden by the blackness of our skin
He searches to find peace within
He finds love in the blackness of her skin

Back to the ghetto 
Serenaded by the violence outside the window
Project aristocrats gather they realize 
That our hearts and minds are shackled by the lies 
But he finds peace when he looks into her eyes 
And see her blackness is fine
The blackness of her skin the blackness of her mind

Straight from the womb 
Right smack dab in the middle ofâ?¦
Poverty insecurity no one to save me
The young black man lays his head on her young black thighs

So that the child in her womb can hear the tears 
That the black man cries 
Soon come on a wave of positivity the big swinger,
Swingin' like a jazz singer travelin', movin', movin', 

Steppin' in my three-quarter shell-toes, 
Groovin' love to hear the brothers signify sisters with their head held high 
Summertime, the livin' is easy dreaming of seas of dark tranquility 
On the project train full speed on the project train heading for my love that's sweet like sugercrane
