    Default ghost verse make sense of this

    someone....haha its a dope beat but man....
    [Ghostface Killah]
    Yo
    Aiyyo I'm lost underwater
    I see a pink dog with a crystal handle, so I keep swimmin
    Amazed that I'm not drownin
    Butterflies took control when I arrived, I opened the door
    No I knocked first, I'm not on my turf
    I seen a ray of lights that resemble live fireworks
    Some mermaids with Halle Berry haircuts flashin they tail
    Like follow me now, don't be afraid
    I'ma show you where all the djinns and spirits pray
    If you scared to face this life you shouldn't stay
    So I kept on swimmin, grabbed on to her fin to help me out
    As we got close I seen the boat all shot up with his anchor out
    Then she asked me politely what I'm thinkin about
    I said nuttin - she said nuttin leaves nuttin
    If you fill me up bet this'll bring that out
    I seen rubies, diamonds, smothered under octopus
    Jellyfish sharks soar, aquaproof pocketbook
    Pearls on the mermaid girls
    Gucci belts that they rock for no reason from a different world
    Up ahead lies Noah's Ark, but that's waves away
    And way to the right, that's one of our bangin spas
    She quoted I took notice, Spongebob in the Bentley Coupe
    Bangin the Isleys, he slow backed up
    Then he passed me swoop, seen his chick eyein me hard
    He got vexed and smacked his boo
    Took off, continued my travels
    Seen a rock from the Titanic
    Lookin fat and nah it wasn't damaged
    Then I seen somethin real big, sky blue and gold
    with whitewalls, behind a large city
    That was lost before Christ walked the walk
    upon the waters that's so bright
    Everytime we got close the mermaid held on tight
    All I heard was "Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar"
    "Bismillah ar-Rahman, ar-Raheem, Allah screamed"
    That we heard from afar, everyone selat
    And the world's banginest minds got crowded in
    With life that I can't explain
    They said sir yes I'm glad you came, greeted me with Qu'rans and Torahs
    Prayed after that we said amen

    Realness

    Its "pink door", not "pink dog". Anyway, I don't think you should take this shit too seriously. Just a fun tale about what seems like some sort of drugged out spiritual trip... It's good to see Ghost doing his thing as a storyteller on Fishscale....

    Ghost is crazy man. Some of the shit he comes up, it's like what mindstate you gotta be in to come up with that shit? I've come up with some trippy dellusional shit before myself though but Ghost just spits crazy shit sometimes.

    its a story, a fictional one obviously but still an ill story
    Like a child I have infinite patience when I write

    It's a dream is what it is. Ghost is a human being and when he falls asleep at night he has dreams just like all of us. He's recounting his dreams. Now, if you want to go deeper, dreams all have a meaning. But I don't know enough about the motherfucker's life to set here and tell you what kind of significance that has. Someone in his fam may have died drowning. He could have a great fear of water or maybe he can't swim. There's too many possibilities.

    i just took it as a story of being underwater....with a some reference to the lost city of Atlantis thus the mermaids, the city, and religious reference

    it's an allegory for experiencing death
    As for myself: I had come to the conclusion that there was nothing sacred about myself or any human being, that we were all machines, doomed to collide and collide and collide.
