Let the buyer beware
and prepare for the scare of 1991 yo
brothers get dumb without no remorse yo
gas they hand and then they thrown off course yo
I coulda told ya so
I'm no dummy
girls out there will act funny for the money
if ya rollin' in dough she'll treasure ya
instead of a pager
she carries a cash register
it's cool for the fool that just happens
to be a crack dealer or rappin'
back in the day
it wasn't no problem
cause it was ok, to just have a job then
but, nowadays ya gotta have the status
but, natives ain't goin' for the madness
hey, they barely outta their teens
16 & 17 year olds livin' like queens
cause, honey trips without the checks
and ayo
money trips without the sex
so next is somethin' that natives don't need
headaches & heartaches
and I refuse to partake
in money for sex
in any form or fashion
all ya hopes & dreams I'm like smashin'
and I know otha brothas know how I feel
so you can step cause (it ain't no big deal),
"Money for sex, money for sex, ring it up..."
Where, oh where did the good girls go?
It seems all that's left in the Meadow is hoes
not the kinda hoe that you use in your garden
yes the kinda hoe that'll make your dick harden
but it's more than a dolla for a holla
and more than a thousand for a peak up her blouse, and
more than a million if ya have children
cause nowadays girls wanna make like a killin'
so babies come in handy
and they'll just eat up your dough like candy
give her some Brandy
and let her roll around in the Benz
and she'll give up the crotch and brag to all her friends
thinkin' they can play me like a field trip
that's why I slugged my honey dip
cause that's more than I can stand
and I'm the man who sets it right again
bust they in the lip
and the bitch will never bite again
you ain't gettin' with my nubain brothers
cause before you even hit them covers
I warned 'em
told 'em what was up before you bitches even swarmed him
cause they'll be next
if I didn't hip my brothers to the sex
so you can try to rob and steal
but we were right on ya heels because (it ain't no big deal),
You say crack sellers are swell fellas
takin' you to school in his 5.0
like I don't know that your boyfriend is paid
ya musta told me 18 times, the other day
bamboo earings & gold teeth
and I know you must be givin' up the whole piece
he's just payin' for the sex
and I know you prostitutes is playin' with the sex
so who's next?
Don't think that you can play the Homosapien
cause I got plenty of friends that's like waiting in the trenches
and I know your intentions
you wanna be down with a rapper
so you clap your
thighs around my legs like a sandwich
but I'm not famished
your schemes & plots are outlandish
tan is the color of my skin, but
false is the color of your grin
so you can't win
this ain't no joke
and honey dip you can quote
note for note
and squeal like a billygoat
and tell your friends that Del is stuck up
but in reality
you phucked up
now nubians ain't givin' money for the sex
and ayo
nubians ain't givin' money for the sex
you stuck out in the cold
like a mole on my asshole
cause brothers ain't givin' up another red cent for the sex
now, don't you look foolish?
Ya gold diggin' ass looks goulish
pale as a ghost cause ya post high like a man is a big wheel
because (it ain't no big deal).

Techno Ted
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
