Understanding lyrics: Grand Scheme by Tigress Zoo

Tigress offers an amount of biblical metaphors in her lyrics. If knowledgable you may catch them off the back. If not, well here is a break down.

2nd verse (first 4 bars)
“Ever since the time/ young zoo was scripting rhymes/ it was like I was writing for the future, leap in time/ thru the dirt and the glass, wonder how to sharpen lines/ I could never forget/ the stories kept in my chest/

*Tigress speaks as a prophet’s soul of ancient times and witnessing the changing of generations. Though sure of origin’s traveled, most of the past is in bits of pieces.

2nd verse continued

Gotta lot to fill these pages for a couple lives, and next when I’m gone/ heaven praising my psalms/ hallelu- the fam/ see me on the east of Eden, I’m coasting river dam/ Hudson, I-95/ on that fdr stunting.

***The Tigris appears twice in the Bible. In the Book of Genesis, where it is the third of the four rivers branching off the river issuing out of the Garden of Eden.[6] Daniel received one of his visions “when I was by that great river the Tigris”.[9]

Pin Ups are sexy, bad, and outspoken! Thriving off tough love and random bodega trips to make 50 cent sodas look like bliss. We talk with an attitude that never hurts a soul because we speak from the heart and nothing more. Sticking our tongues out at a job well done, I wanna run up wall and let the world now I’m the one. We are never scared and fear no human. The unknown is a place of peace.  Cracking jokes with our boyfriend and keeping up with our guy friends and if when we are single we make room for our girlfriends. We walk with a sound track playing to the clicks of our heels and the sway in our hips. Wearing sun dresses with army boots and skirts with sneakers, we want the music loud and breaking glass through the speakers. Like the bass is our heart beat and your smiles are our air. We don’t represent an nation though, we represent those who stay true to themselves. 

Keep in touch with Tigress Zoo!

Nothing is better than communication and I’m always talking to my fans and supporters about what’s happening with me and my music. Sometime social media takes away from the depths of getting in touch with people because it’s all out in the open. Everything has to be funny or buffed up because vulnerability; a lot of punks can’t do.

I offer my email address, Tigresszoo@gmail.com, because everybody needs somebody sometimes. And I’m never opposed to sharing ideas, collaborations, or simply airing out anything I want to get off my chest. I’m look to become better and stronger. A survivor.

If you like my music, like me as an artist and want to communicate. The email door of Tigress Zoo is always open. My fans and supporters inspire me a lot more than you think.

Looking forward to hearing from your brave souls.

Always love,

Tigress Zoo
