Thread: Raekwon - Verbal Intercourse

  1. #1

    Default Raekwon - Verbal Intercourse

    So could someone explain it to me, I understand some things but I didn't leave the lines out so yea...thanks.

    -

    Verse One: Nas

    Through the lights cameras and action, glamour glitters and gold
    I unfold the scroll, plant seeds to stampede the globe
    When I'm deceased, by then the beast arise like yeast
    to conquer peace leaving savages to roam in the streets
    Live on the run, police paying me to give in my gun
    Trick my Wisdom, with the system that imprisoned my son
    Smoke a gold leaf I hold heat, nonchalantly
    I'm grungy, but things I do is real it never haunts me
    while, funny style niggaz roll in the pile
    Rooster heads profile on a bus to Riker's Isle
    Holdin weed inside they pussy with they minds on the
    pretty things in life, props is a true thug's wife
    It's like a cycle, niggaz come home, some'll go in
    Do a bullet, come back, do the same shit again
    From the womb to the tomb, presume the unpredictable
    Guns salute life, rapidly, that's the ritual


    Verse Two: Raekwon the Chef

    Perhaps bullets bust niggaz discuss mad money
    True lies and white guys, we can see it through the eyes
    Catch the most on tape, kilos disintegrate
    Pyrex pots, we break, fiends lickin plates
    In the building niggaz building, like little children starin
    Them older niggaz aint carin
    Sirens circlin fiends are lurkin in your baggage
    oh, one's gone now, what, smack him in his cabbage
    In the woodwork, crack cells bubble like Woolworth's
    in the projects, richest niggaz rockin all the real worth
    Police questioning, rooftop cats invested in
    Tradin in they Lexus' GS's sendin messages
    Two and two makes four, Cristal's crazily pour
    Gun wars my crew phantom like swords

    Verse Three: Ghostface Killer

    With the green leathers, hunded pound snakes and cakes
    Fiends found in lakes, jeolously Jakes we shake
    What I strive for is what I live for
    Infatuated by material things, and it's wild like for war
    like somewhere over the rainbow, I see a big pot of gold
    Future stacks yo I hold
    Thousands of cracks bagged up inside the shoebox
    Don't keep jack in my lap, don't wanna see Tupac
    Got two spots, a new lot, flooded with rocks
    Shoot-outs making me hot, crooked cops Bad Tony and the ball drop
    In the Now, I'm bangin niggaz for slide time
    Hurry up Duke I'm next, show em mine
    And what the fuck is you looking at?
    By the way young blood, hit me off with that Green Bay hat
    Watch your back inside the hall, new niggaz slide through
    like doors yo, you're starin in the mess hall
    Your adrenaline runs, cigarette niggas be swindlin
    New jacks surrenderin, come home not rememberin
    Made bail with different size kicks on, a white dress shirt
    Lookin gay in the yard, and you got hurt
    Flashbacks, of the day room, mop ringer style
    Your faggot ass got bashed tryin to turn the dial
    You told your boo you was whylin
    Once you heard Wu, out of the blue, your family's from Shaolin
    High class cooks, throw on vestes out of phone books
    Infirmary niggas are screaming, "I got drugs!"
    Sharpen toothbrushes 190 mixed with baby oil and shit
    Your man's in the kitchen stashing ice picks
    Well I'ma end this with a big red cherry on top
    Me, Nas and Rae got the best product on the block

    by then the beast should rise like yeast,to conquer peace leaving savages to roam in the streets


    the system or government will rise and take whatever freedom we have
    more or less mashall law

    What I would really like to know is what that looped woman is saying. Something like "I wanna love him... but WHAT is he".

    ^^^yeah, I heard it...it's the same verse

    here are 2 lines, I don't understand:

    "police paying me to give in my gun..."

    "Holdin weed inside they pussy..."
    Shaolin shadowboxin' and the wu-tang swordstyle...
    If what you say is true...
    The shaolin and the wu-tang could be dangerous!
    En garde, I'll let you try my wu-tang style...

    The women are smuggling weed into the prison
    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.
