He's my take....
"'Plantation Memories', stone monolith choicebound
Hoist down the use of human beings a voice sounds"
"Plantation Memories" is a book reference about racism
The "Stone Monolith" could mean, comparing with the Plantation's....
What human's make or do to the earth ?
"Choicebound" ? you're bound to make a choice.
"Hoist down the use of human beings a voice sounds"
I belive this ties with the Plantation reference
In that the "Use" of human beings has been lowered : Slaves
"A Voice Sounds" I think means the songs the slaves used to sing while working.
"Aqua-taxi verbalism tours, ticketed separately
Ice laid in waters, all thrilled to the heroics"
I heard this song when I was at school
It was the first Holocaust track I ever heard.
And I've always heard him say :
"Aqua-Taxi Verbalism Tours : Ticketed Seperately"
I belive he is saying when he's rhyming he can walk on water & transport you
The next line "Ice Laid In Waters, All Thrilled To The Heroics"
Could mean that he's not walking on water....simply walking on Ice
However everyone is still thrilled by his heroics ?
At the same time it could be that he is the Ice simply floating.
Or that his tongue is the taxi....Who knows ?
Hair pin twists and turns, bottles exploded
Tomorrow land, news flash, Baskin-Robbins and Häagen-Dazs
Lens Crafter articles cleansing open ya noggin flaws
Not a clue what the 1st line means
But the 2nd "Tomorrow Land" could be a Disney Theme Park reference
"News Flash : Baskin-Robins & Häagen-Dazs" -
As in get your ice-cream you need to see this :
"Lenscrafter Articles Cleansling" repairing your sight
"Open Ya Noggin Flaws" could mean the noggins in support of a structure....
Say a rollercoaster or someting ? haha
I don't know man, it's all open to interpritation....
And I may be reaching with the 2nd set of lines you questioned
As that is some serious abstract matter right there.
But thats what I get from it.
He's a genius with hidden messages
It's like at times sections of his verses are a jigsaw puzzle.
You could do this with any Architect/Warcloud/Alcatraz/Robot Tank verse
It's if you are willing to or like Mumm-Ra said just leave it be.
I'm open to hear anyone else's view on any of the verses
As this is a monstrosity of a song....way way before his time on this.
I've often wondered if this was the first track he ever did ?
