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

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.

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.
