The basket cases is in a classless matrix with elastic patience

from Aesop Rock – Shovel Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

People’s lives nowadays are a mess and the fact that they have no class consciousness puts them in a classless state//position//place.

The “classless matrix” (the sum of factors in the society that make people unaware of class warfare and the class they belong in) has “elastic patience” because it attempts to “fit” everyone eventually (even those that have have class consciousness might lose it in the long run).
