    [intro]

    (Kung Fu sample from "Shogun Assassin")

    Choose the sword, and you will join me
    Choose the ball, and you join your mother... in death
    You don't understand my words, but you must choose
    *baby crying*
    So... come boy, choose life or death

    (Ghostface Killah)

    The only man I hold weight for
    is the sky-blue Bally kid, in eighty-three, rocked Taylor's
    My Memorex performed tape decks, my own phone sex
    Watch out for Haiti bitches, I heard they throw hex
    Yo, Wu whole platoon is filled with rap coons
    Corner sittin wine niggaz sippin Apple Boone,
    this ain't no white cartoon
    Cuz I be duckin crazy spades
    The kid hold white shit, like blacks rock ashy legs
    Why is the sky blue? Why is water wet?
    Why did Judas, rat to Romans while Jesus slept? Stand up
    You're out of luck like two dogs stuck
    Iron Man be sippin rum, out of Stanley Cups, unflammable
    Noriega, aimin nozzles which stay windy in Chicago
    spine-tingle, mind boggles
    Kangols in rainbow colors, promoters try to hold dough
    Give me mine before Po, wrap you up in so-and-so
    I ran the Dark Ages, Constantine the great Henry the Eighth
    Built with Ghengis Khan, the wreck suede Wally Don

    (Killah Priest)

    I judge wisely, as if nothin ever surprise me
    Loungin, between two pillars of ivory
    I'm lively, my dome piece, is like buildin stones in Greece
    my poems are deep from ancient thrones I speak
    I'm overwhelmed, as my mind, roams the realm
    My eye's the vision, memory is the film
    Others act subtile, but they fragile above clouds
    They act wild and couldn't budge a crowd
    No matter how loud they get, though they growl and spit
    Clutch they fists, and throw up signs like a Crip
    And throw all types of fits
    I leave 'em split, like ass cheeks and ragged pussy lips

    [RZA]

    Aiyyo, camoflouge chameleon, ninjas scalin your buildin
    No time to grab the gun they already got your wife and children
    A hit was sent, from the President, to raid your residence
    Because you had secret evidence, and documents
    on how they raped the continents, and it's the prominent
    dominant Islamic, Asiatic black hebrew
    The year two thousand and two, the battle's filled with the Wu
    Six million devils just died from the Bubonic Flu
    Or the Ebola Virus, under the reign of King Cyrus
    You can see the weakness of a man right through his iris
    Un-loyal snakes get thrown in boilin lakes
    of hot oil, it boils your skin, chickenheads gettin slim
    like Olive Oyl, only plant the seed deep inside fertile soil
    Fortified with essential, vitamin and minerals
    Use the sky for a blanket, stuffin clouds inside my pillow
    Rollin with the lambs
    Twelve tribes a hundred and forty four thousand chosen
    Protons Electrons Always Cause Explosions

    [GZA]

    The banks of G, all CREAM downs a bet
    Money feed good, opposites off the set
    It ain't hard to see, my seeds need God-degree
    I got mouths to feed, unnecessary beef is more cows to breed
    I'm on some tax free shit by any means
    Whether bound to hit scheme or some counterfeit CREAM
    I learned much from such with cons who run scams
    Veterans got the game spiced like ham
    And from that, sons are born and guns are drawn
    Clips are fully loaded, and then blood floods the lawn
    Disciplinary action was a fraction of strength
    that made me truncate the length one-tenth
    Woofers thump, tweeters hits like air pumps
    RZA shaved the track, niggaz caught razor bumps
    Scarred tryin to figure who invented
    this unprecented, opium-scented, dark-tinted
    Now watch me blow him out his shoes without clues
    Cuz I won't hesitate to detonate, I'm short fused

    The greatest song on Liquid Swords. In my eyes, it's one of the most dark, dirtiest, and threatening songs I've ever heard. Love it.

    Classic

    This track destroyed the boundaries of music altogether. I know the hardest of hardcore metal fans who love this. I know skaters who have made this their personal mantra. I know chicks who are die hard pop Britney Spears fans who get down to this. It is a worldwide phenomenon.

    The #1 track from Liquid Swords in terms of Corp voting is a no-brainer Top 10 song. Rza creates a dark and disturbing atmosphere filled with screeching synthesizers, metal guitar chord strikes, and low hollow bells that roll and act as part of the percussion along with the hardest of snare raps. The result is a melody that upon first listen causes goosebumps and further plays melt the listener's ears.

    Yet another brilliant movie sample from Shogun Assassin proceeds the song, so enrapturing it sets the mood precisely for what's to follow...

    Ghostface opens the verses in a eye-opening way, his lyrics ranging from metaphorical, to surreal, to all out Biblical. The expansion of his game from earlier Clan releases is ever apparent here, as his subject matter, flow accuracy, and range are all on the highest levels.

    Killah Priest's verse was duplicated perfectly in the video, as he indeed sits on a throne between two pillars of ivory. This was another of the many fantastic aspects of the album, with so many videos, you went way above and beyond the already visual lyrics. You got to see in living color, GZA's vision of the album.

    Rza's verse is easily one of his and the Clan's best. He wraps you into a first person account of an attack on your house, with kidnapped family members, and a secret government plot which has apocalyptic conequences. By quoting revelations (144,000 chosen) and its warlike subject being concluded by "protons electrons always cause explosions" an acronym for "peace", RZA engrosses you with his intelligent designs. The replay value is immense.

    GZA's concluding verse just gets better and better with each bar as he ends with a bang literally, blowing up both in the song and as an artist. A legend is born.

    As far as music goes, and I'm talking ANY genre here, it really doesn't get any better than this. Instrumentally and lyrically, it is easily one of the greatest songs of all time.

    I'm pretty sure die hard pop fans would be scared off by something this dark. But I agree with what you said about skaters, goths, metalheads etc. all loving this.
