Default GZA on Dashing (Reasons)

Back when I use to smoke trees I use to listen to music and get lost in it.

I remember getting high as shit once and listening to this song and I found a deep meaning in GZA's verse.

Check my theory....

They couldn't get me, watch me move swiftly
Broke the unmarked fifty with this cabby who was a gypsy
He stayed tipsy, said he loved his bills crispy
Drivin' the streets he kept heat on the night, shifty - He was in a taxi driven by a gypsy and he began telling him a story.

Quickly, who ring bells like it's twelve on Sunday?
While the stage catch shells from forceful gunplay
Mere fact that the track was a fierce counterattack
All those who couldn't multiply were sent back - At this point I visioned the scene from Malcolm X when he was gunned down on stage many people said the NOI was behind the hit and after his death a lot of followers gave up NOI, or were "sent back".

No tanks, low rank, soldiers hittin' the heart
Tainted the heart of an empire, was torn apart
Brought to a halt from a front full assault - I thought about Roman paganism dying to Christianity and also Christianity waring with Islam during the crusades

The chemist left the lab with undetermined results
They saw the swordsman sift electrical volts
The audience threw nuts with loose screws and bolts
The archives automatically changed ya stiff vibes
It was layin' in the zip drive from chest five - Here I think he was talking about Jesus and his miricles and how science can't determine truth always. The archives (scripture) changed from the Old Testament to the New... yet the New Testament is a reflection of the old... it was layin in the zip drive from chest 5 (Torah = first five books of the BIBLE)

What do ya'll think?

I think your reading into it too much, but an interesting read non the less.
