The Lyrics

This song is about a tribute to the projects.
I have a high-rise, at smaller price
got rats and roaches, this is not nice
Look at the kitchen, holes in the walls
I got my landlord to pay it all

They say i'm crazy, but it's waste of a time
Outside my house, it's got a scene of some crime
Life's not good to me so far

The front door number reads "185"
I got a Skyhawk so I can drive
Good food in the fridge, bad ones in the back
Ain't got no doors, seems like someone attacked

Old, dusty records, don't playa hate
Some past due letters I have to pay
So I got me a bedroom, rap posters on the wall
Phone's disconnected, now I can't call

This place insane's and the design ain't cool
(everybody say "not cool" [not cool])
I can explain this whole nonsense to who
Life's not good to me so far

(instrumental interlude)

Throw hip-hop parties, ain't leaving 'til 4
Seems the police just showed up at the door
I need this high-rise to rearrange
Watch "Trading Spaces" to make a change

This place is lazy and it's a waste of time
(throw your hands and say "oh yeah" ["oh yeah"])
I'll keep house hunting, that's the answer to why
Life's not good to me so far.

Oh man....first of's JOE Walsh. John Walsh is the America's Most Wanted guy, i believe. Second, my opinion is that there's too many original words left in this. Maybe that's just me though. Even with that, still not terrible, but I think there's a whole bunch of room for improvement here.
