GZA on Advanced Pawns...
 
Alright, alright, I'm a bitch and couldn't wait; I downloaded ONE track from Grandmasters...but damn...

Scientists look at the magnitude of devestation
But the strands of heavy metal seem to have no relation
But as always attention for large scale disasters
Of course the instrumental spins a hundred times faster
Many was taken, just at the price of a pawn
The collective loss has left a thousand to mourn


...could someone let me know if I've got this right? And maybe an interpretation?
Cheers.

Damn, GZA is always on a whole other level. Even I need some time to decipher this. Things like this that makes me proud to be a GZA fan. It'd be fucking ill just to build with the GOD. I'll get back at ya after I listen to the track at home.


PEACE.

You and me both, on all accounts. But sweet-as, thanks. And pay attention to the lines before it too; not sure if they fit in or not.

I'm going to have to check on some reports of the 911 rubble again...

Good to see someone who enjoys GZA as much as I do.

....Peace ya'll...look at this, read this...

Scientists look at the magnitude of devestation..."Natural Disasters."
.....

But the strands of heavy metal seem to have no relation..."Heavy Metal,"~Earth's Plates, metal can be found inside these plates; plates that some large continents sit on.
.....
But as always attention for large scale disasters...known for their destruction in the case of an earthquake.
....

....Many was taken, just at the price of a pawn
The collective loss has left a thousand to mourn...

~which means innocent lives taken, "just at the price of a pawn."

....Just an' ill way of lookin' at it, 1ne.

should read:

"But there's always potential for large-scale disasters"

i cant interpret this for you in any way, but im positive that says potential and not attention

I thought that was what it was! Ta.

Nice, thanks.
Here's something that just hit me as I listened to it for the seven-hundreth time or so. I know, I should quit the weed, but...

Powerful darts, narrowly missing your whole tribe
...What 'missed a whole tribe' so narrowly, what 'tribe'?...

Scientists look at the magnitude of devestation
...This had me thinking Ground Zero after the next line...

But the strands of heavy metal seem to have no relation
...reports of the rubble stating the metal supports at the base of the WTC towers were molten, unexplainably (I'll try to remember me source for y'all)...

But there's always potential for large scale disasters
...

Of course the instrumental spins a hundered times faster
...predetermined tune, or spin...

Many was taken, just at the price of a pawn
The collective loss had left a thousand to mourn

...GZA loves to mess with me head!

i think you may have something there.

the few lines you dont really explain, can still be on this 9/11 trip.

Powerful darts, narrowly missing your whole tribe
afganistan still has tribal rule in some areas, especially where Osama is hiding. the powerful darts can be the US and Allied armies...but we havent got them yet, we're narrowly missing them.

But there's always potential for large scale disasters
the usa isnt safe, anything can happen. its a warning. none of us expecting 9/11 to occur.

Many was taken, just at the price of a pawn
The collective loss had left a thousand to mourn
many people died by the hands of these lowly Al Qada (lowly opposed to the head Osama) pawns.
the total dead has left thousands more to mourn their deaths.

Hey yeah, that's probably a more accurate interpretation than the one I had; That basically the whole government was safe, despite the White House and Pentagon planes...

Thanks for your views. Heaven knows I'm reelin' and appreciate any input on this verse!

Peace.
