    The Soul Controller

    Ironman
    1996

    Ghostface Killah
    The Force M.D.'s


    RZA




    [Chorus]

    (The Force MD's)

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

    (Ghostface Killah)

    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, what you hand off?
    That white rock, and then give birth to a knot
    Your biggest dream was to rock an eight-fifty and Beam
    You and your Gods buy a crib in the white part of Queens
    But at the same time, niggas 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

    [Chorus]

    (The Force MD's)

    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

    (Ghostface Killah, *The Force MD's*)

    Sink deep into the fog, big buffalo large
    Taj Mahal just got banked, shanked for eighty Gods
    It's hard to keep up, with these Keons, ya smoke dust
    In the U.S. Mint they want to rock the place and call the rush
    For these shameless niggas armed with cherry-red Balley's
    On the twenty-fifth, everybody rich is gettin' married
    Killed for power beans, he brother own schools in Medina
    Vaseline lips is cracked because they all had dreams
    They overdue, these Gods own a Mosque in Peru
    Tropical trees and weeds where they grew bamboo
    Olympic minds quick flash like a Nikkon
    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
    *A, a, a long time comin'*
    ..stay sober, The Soul Controller

    [Chorus]

    Ohhh yeah.. a change gon come
    Wooo, yes it will

    (Ghostface Killah)

    Yo, yo, we sit and play the wall like nine super heroes
    Lay for the Manchuz and hear shots in stereo
    The kid's nice, warnin' you twice, run your garments
    Jet to Providence, switch up and back down your Parliament
    Ironman is laced with a plate in the dome piece
    Go off in airports, biographies, prophecies
    Watch me set it, real Keons hold down the desert
    And walk with a famous name like Supreme Magnetic
    Carbon copy, I love my Akai snare choppy
    Beloxi off of Funky Penguin with wax poppy on instrumentals
    Niggas get lost like S.S. Minnows, turned down like rentals
    Keep gold around the denim

    [Chorus]

    (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, woo, yes it will
    Said I'm so, tired of living, woo ooh
    But I'm, but I'm afraid to die, woo yeah
    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, woo, yes it will

    (Carlito's Way Movie Sample)

    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 Mo-ricans..
    Well, maybe not the last..
    Can't come with me on this trip though
    Gettin' the shakes now
    Last call for drinks
    Bar's closin' down
    The Sun's out
    Where we goin' for breakfast?
    Don't wanna go far
    Rough night
    I'm tired, baby
    I'm tired

    (The Usual Suspects Movie Sample)

    The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled
    Was convincing the world he didn't exist
    ..and like that.. he's gone!

    I love this shit when I'm baked. The echo on the vocals makes it sound confined somehow.

    Man - this track almost drove me insane because I ripoped acopy of Ironman our local library had onto tape. Laters - I knew there was this amazing track with Usual suspects dialogue but I couldn't find it anywhere. Fantastic

    super complex beat by the rza and complex rhymes by ghostface. when i first heard this joint in like middle school the first thing i thought was ghost (and rza) threw a whole lot of shit into this song... like 3 samples and sounds, force md's, 2 movie samples.. shit is classic.
