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. Daniel received one of his visions “when I was by that great river the Tigris”.
