Riff: Lauryn Hill – “Neurotic Society (Compulsory Mix)”

May 8, 2013

Sick cycle psychology, in desperate need of psychiatry/Exorcism, sobriety, forcing social lobotomy/People stuck in dichotomies, pseudo sicko anxiety/Serial criminals, dressed in variety

from Neurotic Society (Compulsory Mix) lyrics by Lauryn Hill

Lauryn Hill wastes no time in reclaiming her throne as Queen Bee. But the message isn’t about supremacy here, instead it’s a mile-a-minute diatribe aimed at society and its many many contradictions. There’s no hook, and with the easily decipherable lyrics it’s clear that Ms. Hill isn’t playing coy.
