With an iceman's chance in Dante's dreamland to stand where the fans lamp

from Aesop Rock – Shovel Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This is an indirect way of saying that there is practically zero hope for the human society to improve; an iceman hates heat and he would have a reeeaaaaally hard time finding fans to cool himself in “Dante’s dreamland” (Dante’s Inferno; Hell).

His chance of succeeding in doing so is in reality non-existent, as is the chance for the human society to get better. Basically this line is a simple restatement of the pessimistic view of humanity’s future expressed in the two previous ones.
