    this threads been sleepin....Bronze ain't come around in a while damn..



    lyrics to The Great Migration track

    great fuckin song....love the flow and the structure of the verses...and the beat is just like scary..

    lotta shit i'd like to have explained and/or cleared up on this one..

    Yo, in the jungle
    Streets hard, flee God
    doubt God, why God?
    moms heard me scream, like i been scorned
    the beef so supreme lord
    five toes, got hoes
    playin for my house doughs
    another dose of vicatin
    slicin it, juttin in like sudden cuttin winds
    and we got severe strokes, sword-tip
    pen-pokes, send folks to hell
    when the doors close, its hard here
    my dear, kiss ya chin, miss again
    this is Michigan, aka Babylon seas of sin
    its me again, grabbin at ya backdoor like a rap-tor
    you need me you ac-tors
    revelations, came in, deterioratin men and women emcees....
    go home and smoke them leaves..
    Slice and dice, puree, my forte
    is swordplay, chop off ya limbs day
    sway off strings of ligaments
    this nigga bends kept my limbs (??) and rock
    black Timbs, only wins between pungent
    dungeon walls and basements
    Relentless, killa bee
    sting like flyin jellyfish
    A king who walks around, wit a pen, and a severed wrist


    Yo, in the streets
    Jungles deep, run from man, haunted land
    skeletons they hauntin man, you argue fam we flauntin hands
    and might just let the pipes bust
    in the birth canal, I creep from wells, wit secret spells to teach and tell
    my speech'll kill, its steep as hills
    Its deeper still, we dwell on scarred blocks
    where they scar cops, they don't even come
    for evening suns, i'm grievin, and be needin guns
    cuz stocks and bonds are far beyond the poverty lines we stand for years
    Hooded life, crimson rain, singin in a veil of tears
    trail of beers and vodka, i'm on a--different planet
    i crack skulls like granite, that was blast outta cannons
    From standin on porches, to handin off roach clips
    i'm so swift, i broke ribs and came back like Joe Gibbs
    Blow kids out boxes, box-cutters and glock clips
    the loudest, obnoxious, shots just woke me from my worst nightmare
    We thirst for light years, cuz dark days and grain stays
    over me like no one seen
    Can't control the scenes, i'm just an actor
    in the scripts of life, my pen poison is quick to strike cuz skin moistness (??) my kryptonite, i skipped the hype
    and took the elevator, towards Heaven's light....

    from an old Bronze interview i was lookin at today, from when TGM came out..

    Bronze:
    I know that in the past people have appreciated my beats more than my lyrics, but on this album, some of my lyrics might go past you, but if you rewind my lyrics, you'll see that I'm lyrically-crazy. I'm not a conceited cat, but I'm confident. I have some deep shit on there. I've lived a life where I've been through things and seen things. I just want people to respect the lyrics on this. The beats are going to be there. The beats are crazy already. Pay attention to the lyrics. I love y'all for supporting.
    damn i hope we get some more updates on this thread i been jammin this album constantly lately...

    "My habit's insane, performin an audio-topsy:
    cotton-grown testosterone, got glocks for bones
    drink a marsh of H20, think harsh darts n throw maybe blow
    poison tips, razor tits, sour as lemon sticks my fetish is wet pussy wit splatter patterns.."

    The Bronzeman verse might be my fav now....shit is so fuckin raw

    Jus got a question about your openin line on "More The Gold"... Wha u mean when u say;"I'm a king with no wings, but we can box in one "
    I meant Rings not wings.


    More Than Gold
    "thorough drumline slow, like DUMBO.."
    i was always kinda thinkin its "Dumbo" because of the thorough slow drumline in the cartoon movie when hes performin at the circus and shit...but if aint Dumbo than i have no idea what it means..

    stir a drumline slow like gumbo/


    The Bronzeman
    "the seeds of my cold blood travel through deep veins,/ grew up wit no hands, arms were spike ball and chain.."

    this verse is straight up incredible throughout and i've always pondered this line...

    and
    "my possible scam, a sonogram of modern man.."

    that first line is just imagery, cold blood in deep veins like the deeper the ocean the colder the water, so basically the more you push me the more explosion

    and you the medeival spiked ball and chain? where its a metal ball with sharp spike on it, Im just exaggerrating here, I spiked ball and chains instead of arms


    Stolen Van Gogh
    "season beef like electrical seats"
    if the goverment has a beef with you thats how they handle it, with the chair or imprisonment etc etc. So Im saying beef with me will get handled..



    5th Chamber
    "bottle this ????? ??? cherry pits and rusty blades,..."
    can't make out this one part..
    botanist (scientist who studies plants, green ones )/
    rotten as cherry pits and rusty blades


    Great Migration
    i'm gonna type up this whole song soon cuz its one of the deepest and illest on the album but theres one line thats been stuck in my mind that i havent been able to interpret at all..

    "my pen poison is quick to strike/ cuz skin moistness(?) my kryptonite.."
    her skin moistness my kryptonite

    "I'm a king with no rings but we can box in one"

    always loved that opening line

    So Bronze, what did you think about the track? Was it to crazy?

    i had a long road trip back n forth from North Carolina over the weekend and i got to just zone out on this album a couple times and i realized i still have a bunch of unanswered lyric questions....


    (besides the Great Migration title track, which i'm still hoping for a breakdown of...)


    The Pain
    "my girl's late and she don't act right either, for that I hit the ?sins of men? up like a heavy lifter"

    altho i understand it's spoken within the context of a verse revealing the stresses of life, i don't get the stuff about "she don't act right either" especially when there's such a deep and dedicated love song only a few tracks later......and i have no idea what the second part means..

    "Last night glass pipes reflect from my headlights"

    maybe i'm reading way too into it....just sounds like "i saw crack pipes last night" but maybe there's much more to it..



    More Than Gold
    this track is lyrically insane....i always have these lines stuck in my head..but still a few that have me scratchin my head..

    "I'm toxic spun off the marksman epiglottis"


    i see this as a crazy visual imagery line, the epiglottis is the back of the throat and it's like the rhymes are "toxic" that's being shot out from the marksman's (the emcee's) throat...



    "I hit the smoke stacker like my bitch was batter" ?



    "Consider to sin or simmer my lines like roaches shimmer"



    5th Chamber
    "Vagabond with haggler harms, strangle with a herring bone"



    Rare Breed
    "Holdin on to weight like anaconda snakes, a man who tarnish sakes(?)"

    "Ghetto's my toothpick i spit can't inhale scenes"

    not sure if these are the correct lyrics on either one but it's what i think it sounds like....


    $ (Cash Rule)
    "Embers of piff lift leftover grains of cotton, that never blossom"

    sounds like it's sayin how those descendants of slaves who still haven't risen up and been able to blossom are just gettin high off that piff...(mad poetic line)




    that's pretty much all i've got....


    but, like i said, the last song really needs a full breakdown i feel like.....i understand most of it but the shit just sounds so deep i'd like to hear how it all relates together...

    Thatís like phases of life, ya lady mught not be actin right at the moment,

    For that I hit the Sinsemillalike a heavy lifter

    Meaning I might smoke heavy cause of the stress, so much my arms go up and down lifting the blunt like weight training.



    "Last night glass pipes reflect from my headlights"

    maybe i'm reading way too into it....just sounds like "i saw crack pipes last night" but maybe there's much more to it..this is more so some visual shit like Im rolling down and I see all these reflections off my lights, and itís the light reflecting off all of the fiends pipes



    More Than Gold
    this track is lyrically insane....i always have these lines stuck in my head..but still a few that have me scratchin my head..

    "I'm toxic spun off the marksman epiglottis"


    i see this as a crazy visual imagery line, the epiglottis is the back of the throat and it's like the rhymes are "toxic" that's being shot out from the marksman's (the emcee's) throat...
    exactly
    "I hit the smoke stacker like my bitch was batter" ?I hit the smoke stacker (blunt) like my bitch was battered (as if Iím a batterer who beats and repeatedly hits his wife)
    "Consider to sin or simmer my lines like roaches shimmer"
    Considered a sinner, simmer my lines like roaches shimmer
    (sinner part is self expl., but Im saying to cook(think over) my lines like
    roaches shimmer, when a roach clip is burning, the glow


    5th Chamber
    "Vagabond with haggler harms, strangle with a herring bone"
    vagabond = drifter, marvin haggler the boxer, saying I got big knockout arms,
    herring bone is a necklace cats used to wear, so it was just visual to choke an MC with that shit
    Rare Breed
    "Holdin on to weight like anaconda snakes, a man who tarnish sakes(?)"tarnish saints


    "Ghetto's my toothpick i spit canít inhale scenes"what I see I spit, Candid Hell Scenes



    $ (Cash Rule)
    "Embers of piff lift leftover grains of cotton, that never blossom"

    sounds like it's sayin how those descendants of slaves who still haven't risen up and been able to blossom are just gettin high off that piff...(mad poetic line)close, just saying how we were stuck so bad then that we still feel it an smoke is one form of escapeÖ.


    that's pretty much all i've got....
    but, like i said, the last song really needs a full breakdown i feel like.....i understand most of it but the shit just sounds so deep i'd like to hear how it all relates together...

    great migration is a lot of imagery, strung together to show you what I see

    Yo, in the jungle
    Streets hard, flee God
    doubt God, why God?
    moms heard me scream, like i been scorned
    the beef so supreme lord
    Vatoís, got holes
    planned for my house doors
    another dose of vicodin
    slicin it, juttin in like sudden cuttin winds
    and we got severe strokes, sword-tip
    pen-pokes, send folks to hell
    when the doors close, its hard here
    my dear, kiss ya chin, missed again
    this is Michigan, aka Babylon seas of sin
    its me again, rapping at ya backdoor like a rap-tor (Edgar Allen Poe Poem)
    you need me you ac-tors

    go home and smoke them leaves..
    Slice and dice, puree, my forte
    is swordplay, chop off ya limbs they
    sway off strings and ligaments
    this nigga bends kevlar limbs and rock
    black Timbs, only wins between pungent

    Relentless, killa bee

    A king who walks around, wit a pen, and a severed wrist

    for so long I couldn't really grab this line but I got it now and its fuckin crazy:

    from Stolen van Gogh

    "in Heaven's elevator I'll vocally murder you,
    and pass thru like Ash Wednesday UNNOTICED"


    i was always thinkin it was tryin to say how nobody pays attention to Ash Wednesday anymore but that was retarded of me....

    Ash Wednesday is that one day where (if you observe it) u are ALWAYS fuckin noticed....everybody walks around with a smudge of black ash on their foreheads...

    so the line is like he just blew u away in the elevator and now he's gettin out and walkin around the crowd with ashes (or maybe blood?) all over him like it's Ash Wednesday but nobody is noticin...


    just had to point that out..
