    Question Soul Controllah

    Yo, welcome to the topic. I was wondering what Soul Controllah is about, and whether Ghost was dreaming some of the lyrics because they don't really make sense and shit. It's one of my favourite songs, but I'm not quite sure what it's supposed to be. Maybe I'm not explaining how I feel very well but I can't be bothered right now, so discuss

    i think its just ghost reminiscing and looking towards the future, sayin how he's gotta get his mind right.

    thats just my very basic thoughts

    I think is about keeping a sharp mind and watching out.
    not really indepth...
    this thread would fit in lyric Interpretations forum better..

    just enjoy the lyrics for what they are, cuz you dont hear that kind of wordplay anywhere else or in any other music

    "The Soul Controller"
    (feat. The Force MD's)

    [Intro: The Force MD's]

    Whoaahhhoahhh, oahhhohhhhh
    It's been a long, long
    A long time coming
    A change gon' come

    [Verse One: Ghostface]

    Yo, yo these streets got me backed down how can I escape?
    How can I survive without bubblin weight?
    It's prepared for the stand off, once you hand off
    that white rock, and then give birth to a knot
    Your biggest dream was to rock your 850 and beam
    You and the Gods buy a crib in the white part of Queens
    But at the same time, niggaz on the block is ill
    Some'll rock you to sleep, hap, for selling cross pills
    Being watched all day like enemy's prey
    Faces, you never seen before is in your hallway
    Brothers you knew for years is mad pussy and scared
    Back in the days U.F.O.'s couldn't walk up in here
    It's time to motor, travel like a foul order
    Clear my head, stay sober, the soul controller

    Its obvious he's talking about living in the projects selling crack and stacking papes being watched envious peeps getting lost unknown cats walking the hood so he skates from the negativity...

    [Chorus: The Force MD's]

    Oahhhh, it's been a long, long
    A long time coming
    A change gon' come
    Oh, yes it will
    Said I'm too, tired of livin
    But I'm, but I'm afraid to die
    Cause I don't know what's up there
    In that great big ol' sky

    [Verse Two: Ghostface]

    Sink deep into the fog, big buffalo large
    Taj Mahal just got banged, shanked for eighty dollars
    It's hard to keep up, with these key-ons, that smoke dust
    In the U.S. Mint they want to rock the place and call the rush
    All these shameless niggaz armed with cherry-red Bally's
    On the twenty-fifth, everybody rich is gettin married
    Killed for power beans, your brother own schools in Medina
    Vaseline lips is cracked cause they all had dreams
    They overdue, these Gods own a mosque in Peru
    Tropical trees and weaves where they grew bamboo
    Olympic minds quick flash like a leak on
    A hundred shares short to own Nissan, watch em get they feast on
    Royal blue lies inside the eyes of heaven
    Curse the head, who speak foul and jinx number seven (seven)
    Clear my head and stay sober, the soul controller...
    (Stay sober, the soul controller)

    Big timer selling Kilos dust heads stabbed one of his boys crack spot gets rushed cats getting 25tolife some start using ghost jets to peru lounges making quick money devils lying trying to entice but he keeps his mind clear

    [Chorus: The Force MD's]

    Oahhh, been a long time comin
    Oh yeah
    A change gon' come
    Woooaahh, yes it will

    [Verse Three: Ghostface]

    Yo, yo we sit and play the wall like nine super heroes
    Late for the man choose and hit socks and stereos
    The kid's nice, warnin you twice, run your garmets
    Jet to Providence, switch up and back down your Parliament
    Ironman is laced with a plate inside the dome piece
    Go off in airports, biographies, prophecies
    Watch me set it, real key-ons hold down the desert
    And walk with a famous name like Supreme Magnetic
    Carbon copy, I love my car, it's near choppy
    Melachi off the funky pain with the wax poppy on instrumentals
    Niggaz get lost like S.S. Minnows
    Turned out like rentals, keep gold around the denim

    Analyze it!

    [Outro Part One: The Force MD's]

    A change gon come
    Yes it will
    It's been a long, long
    A long time coming
    A change gon come
    Wooo, yes it will
    Said I'm so
    Tired of living
    But I'm, but I'm afraid to die
    Cause I don't know what's up there
    In that great, big ol sky
    Oh my, oh my, oh my
    It's been a long, long time
    A long time coming
    Change gonna come
    Wooo, yes it will

    [Outro Part Two: (from the motion picture "Carlito's Way")]

    Sorry boys,
    All the stitches in the world can't sew me together again
    Lay down, lay down
    Gonna stretch me out in Fernandez funeral home on hun and ninth street
    Always knew I'd make a stop there
    But a lot later than a whole gang of people thought
    Last of the Mohicans
    Well, maybe not the last
    Can't come with me on this trip, Loaf
    Gettin the shakes now
    Last call for drinks
    Bar's closin down
    Sun's out
    Where we goin for breakfast?
    Don't wanna go far
    Rough night
    Tired, baby
    Tired...

    [Outro Part Three: (from the motion picture "The Usual Suspects")]

    Greatest trick the devil ever pulled
    Was convincing the world he didn't exist
    And like that, he's gone

    what's up with all the convusion? The titel gives enough information for what the song is really about.

    just hear the first line:

    These streets got me backed down how can I escape?
    How can I survive without bubblin weight?


    Bubblin weight = Alcohol

    it's about being a Soul Controllah, Staying Sober in mad times and situations like that. Because Ghost is one of the only members in the clan that dousn't do alcohol and shit, so he's explaining how it is to be sober in the slungs of Shaolin.

    It's hard to keep up, with these key-ons, that smoke dust

    Not sure if you knew this already but the lines that the Force MD's is on is from the Neville Brothers song A Change Gonna Come from the Yellow Moon album..
