"Universal Mind Control (Umc)" as written by Pharrell L Williams, Chad Hugo and Lonnie Rashid(common) Lynn....
[Pharrell]
(Uh, uh)
Hey, yo
(Uh, uh)
All they wanna do is dance

That's all they wanna do
(Uh, uh)

[Common]
Get-Get it
Get-Get it (what?)
Get-Get it (what?)

This is that automatic I stay fresh like I'm wrapped in plastic
Beat goes fast, exceed galactic
Southside boy we Cadillactic Charismatic,
Asiatic, I hustle for mathematics
Cameras, action, stay status
Act the type of yo favorite actress
Gucci, Rocking
Coochies, Popping
Movie, Watching
Booties, Shopping
Body, moving, showing, grooving, styling and being fly
I touch the masses like a Catholic.
Expensive rap shit, my future's backlit
Ain't a act with gack who macks and stacks my
Venac attracts y'all react so let's go, uh

[Chorus: Pharrell]
This is that new shit.
Keep tearing ya mind.
That Universal Mind Control, now move your behind.
You know you like it, it's calling your name.
Nigga, this is that new shit and it don't feel the same.
It's that bang

[Common]
Some pop, some lock, some move robotic.
Like Cash Money, I stay in pocket.
You MC's Ra-Ra-Ra Rock, don't stop it.
Chicks exotic, mix hypnotic?
Superhero-row Boy I'm bionic.
You a fad, I'm another level supersponic?
Girl you bout' it,
You can strip like comic and trance to melodic, techno-tronic

Beats, rocking
Seats, dropping
C, popping
Streets, rocking
Freaking, shaking, money making, styling and being fly.

I'm the one the lady,
Ladies chose to strip and pose to,
Take off their close to,
Toast to the one that goes coast to coast
Don't miss the global focal let's go, uh

[Chorus]

[Common]
Get-Get it
Get-Get it
Get-Get it

I am a Renegade,
I've never been afraid,
Fresh and I'm getting paid the future,
Future of this age.
From the south, so I talk this way.
Twista hate at the Grand Marque,
Rock the fly shit like everyday till the top and im on my way.
Let's go, uh

[Chorus]

    General CommentBasically about the masses being controlled by the media or music. It shapes us and show us how to be and we do as they want. They say what is cool and in and we give in to it.
    So hes singing about not trying to be as the media wants you to, buying gucci, giving a guy a lapdance in the club and stuff.
    Be your self, have your own oppinions and don't be affected/hypnotized by the media

    General Commentthe_sentry, now you see it because someone tells you this is what he is saying? wow.

    This is exactly the opposite of what zegita is saying in her/his 4th and 5th sentence. The song is about it's ok to do all those things and be fly and NOT "be your self", and NOT have your own opinions and to be affected/hypnotized by the media because this album is about people feeling what HE wants them to feel [good or bad i supppose], you know, mind controlling the listeners. Hence the title.

    General Commentzegita is right and graciouslove, you could be right. What I think is that Common is kind of mocking that mind set that he can control us through music like all the other radio music stars and celebs.
