Default Re: Hidden Symbolism

damn.

here's some more fun shit:

someone actually mentioned the song, i had never heard it. it has pretty much everything you need to study right there. if you want to know whats up, interpret this shit. i forget who said sunshower, but this is a great song, thanks.

[RZA]
Yo... this song is...
Aiyyo Dunn this song is called Sunshower
Cause we approachin the final hour
You know I ahh all I can say to my brothers and sisters right now
Is stay close to your families, and all your loved ones
Cause this globe is about to explode with hatred
They killin for pennies, knahmsayin?
Peace to the Gods, we got a heavy job... yo, yo

Trouble follows behind a wicked mind, 20/20 vision
of the prism of light but still blind
because you lack the inner, every sinner
will end up in the everlastin winter of hellfire
Throw on this mix just picks your third eye out
you cry out your words fly out, and sounds die out
You remain unheard, sufferin eternally, internal external
Along with your wicked fraternal from generals to colonels
Releasin thermonuclear heat that burns you firmly
And permanently upon this journey
Through the journal of the book of life
Those who took a life without justice
will become just ice ice ice
It's been taught that your worst enemy can harm you
as much as your own wicked thoughts
What devils fought we wrought, and let's annoint
Now you're bein persecuted by that universal court court court
Iron hell with the strong blend of rape and blend of sandal
with rose petals and jasmine, as men use talismans
Burn some incense, chantin witchcraft to reach high dimensions
I'm convinced, Allah is God always has been always will be
You could travel every square inch of the planet and still be
Ninety-three million miles away from the sun
Til you realize you and the sun is one, like the knowledge
Know the ledge to where your heart is
or fall off into the internal hell that's uncharted
Light travels at the rate of 186,000 miles per second
through time and space, until it reach a target
And once we're freed of darkness, and show em where the path
Yo as the Red Sea was parted, into these straight
at the narrow gate, but why that's a road to destruction and hate
What you thought life was a sport? A game?
One hundred years short, know the soul is immortal
Walk through many portals, and those who go astray
will pay a judgment day, and these few years of wicked bullshit
ain't worth the eternity inside a sulfur lake
With dragons and snakes, and any pain you can imaginate
Instead, I chose to become a newlywed to the true bread
of life and fed God Degree of light to my head
It's been said, the fool who sleep is already dead, so I stay awake
And take care of my brother, and uncover reveal the skin
so we can see each other, cause every color
that makes the light appear duller, who's the colored man?
Who's the original, who's the biochemical
Who's the grafted digital, digital, digital, digital
Digital.. yo, yo, yo, yo, yo

Two hundred thousand million atmosphere cubic feet of air we breath
While niggaz minds are trapped twenty thousand fathoms beneath
the sea of reality, they can't inhale deep, devils have em
Stagnant, a trapping, the .45 magnum
And shatter bone fragments
Cops love the block you gettin backed up by Dragnet
Thrown into a six by a steel cabinet
Flippin weights readin ancient tablets, back on the block nobody's havin it
Those who haven't learnt get returned
You freaky ass niggaz get burned
Some walk around like they ain't concerned
with the hell goin on inside the world
The body of old men molest little girls
Is it because the girl's breast has swelled
to the size of a woman, although she's twelve
The whole world is sick, sick, sick
Trapped up in six, six, six
I started off as a pawn in this marathon of life
Tryin to carry on, wishin I had a bomb to blow up Babylon
A vagabond, tryin to steal his corpse we're from paragon
goin in circles, like a ferris wheel
Undernourished meals I cherish hope, drown inside the sea of life
Use my third eye for a periscope, and take flight to the edge of night
To far heights so dark that even wit a bright light
you couldn't see a spark of light
While others play ball, ID call, me and GZA Dirty
hangin in halls, bangin on walls
Kickin rhymes three hours straight with no pause
Boostin from Freeport sunrise to Amityville morgue
Kept razorblade between the jaws, breakin all laws
Started out writin fables to makin beats on lunchroom tables
to wearin long cables that hung down to the navel
So pack some crack and fat sacks of skunk
to funnel the P-Funk, smokin woolie blunts
Dust cocktails and primos, shot more dice than casinos
Back when Wu-Gambinos were called F.O.I. MC's
All and together now crew B.C.C.
REC Posse, G.P., D.M.D.
Ol Dirty stalked East New York GZA maintained Franklin Lane
I was going to time with the Jeff, when students got slain
Polo got nervous walked me to Shaolin sent me to Curtis
Took share time in Marquis, New God general contractin service
While Meth Chef and Dead was off the Nu-dol
For white boys who took steroids
Buildin up bicep tricep pectoids and deltoids
Back when our girlfriends was virgins
Cuttin class with Ghost tryin to bag hoes in Mary Birchem
A Maybeldine beacon night school Washington Irving
These young Gods was seekin
Hoes in Westinghouse and Clara Parton and Medina
Girls who sung like Sarafina
On the corner of Belmont and Picket Avenue I seen her
As if I dreamed her
I was dead broke, now I will use key notes to make G-notes
So it's always hope
See subway train run through the city like blood through the veins
To the heart of Medina, but Shaolin is the brain
So take heed to these words
And feel the power of the Sunshower

Approachin the final hour
Power equality, Allah sees everything
Let's come together under the wings
And take flight, Wu-Tang, the saga, Ryzarecta
In your sector

Default Re: Hidden Symbolism

just to clear up a mistake that i always see in the lyrics to this song online...cuz no1 knows the Staten Island references that Rzas talkin about..

after he says "Gza maintained Franklin Lane" hes sayin he was going to high school at the Jeff, which is Thomas Jefferson high school in Bklyn...its a really bad, rough skool so i guess some students "got slain" ther and then wut hes saying is "Old Earth got nervous, brought me to Shaolin sent me to Curtis"...Curtis is a high school on Staten Island...and then a little after that he says "while Meth,Chef, and Deck was off in NEW DORP"....thats another high school on Staten Island....

doesnt really hav nething to do with symbolism but i just wanted to clear that up for ppl....i live in SI....


and one more thing......can nebody break down these Rza lyrics from the end of Rzas verse in The Abduction???

Rza
...the ice cube link u bought off the jew for 80 geez
was only appraised at 42
gazed upon by the eyes of multitude, of people
who would trade gold for food
i heard Boar's Head kill more than nuclear wars head
and street sons who walk around dressed in all red.."

thats an interesting one.....who can figure it out?

the whole of north america is what he's talking about. I don't know how old this song is but what's goin on in Iraq and other places fits; wherever they've exploited the earth to thier own base end$$$ they are esssentially trading the fruit of the planet away for short term profit. I consider the exploitation of human beings to be in that category as well whether it's killing for oil or making Nike shoes in the phillipines or assisting murderous south american dictators to gain access to resouces. Also the effects can be seen at home rich get richer and the middle class becomes poorer and poorer. Culture wars too: why people like the Wu get angry when some ignorant muthafucka gets on the mic, spits a bunch of bullshit and collects his millions. They're poisoning the youth of the planet everytime they open their mouth. before sunshower starts he says it again...."They killin for pennies....knahmsaying?"

i heard Boar's Head kill more than nuclear wars head
and street sons who walk around dressed in all red.."


This is a guess: either pork or pork eaters cause more death and destruction then nuclear war or gangland battles. Since they would be directly responsible for the first and a bit more indirectly for the second I'd say that's about right. I read that first line like this...

i heard Boar's Head kill more than nuclear wars, head

like he's reffering directly to the listener. Like "didn't you know?"

I'm not too sure about this one. But, the first time I heard the skit at the beginning of Spot Rushers I got a feeling that Ghost and Rae were talking about global warming. Anyone else think that too?

Christians & Muslims however would condemn you and say your going to "hell" if u don't follow their religions.

At least you show your respect. PEACE to you bro.
