Liquid Swords Lyrics

Artist: The Genius/GZA
Album: Liquid Swords

Intro One: (not included on 7")

When I was little... my father was famous.
He was the greatest sam-urai in the empire;
and he was the Shogun's decapitator.
He cut off the heads of a hundred and thirty-one lords.
It was a bad time for the empire.
The Shogun just stayed inside his castle -- and he never came out.
People said his brain was infected by DEVILS.
My father would come home -- he would forget about the killings.
He wasn't scared of the Shogun, but the Shogun was scared of him.
Maybe that was the problem.
Then, one night... the Shogun sent his ninja spies to our house.
They were supposed to kill my father... but they didn't.
*woman screams*
That was the night everything changed *voice fades*

Intro Two: RZA

See, sometimes...
You gotta flash em back
See niggaz don't know where this shit started
Y'all know where it came from
I'm sayin we gonna take y'all back to the swords
We bounce, yo

Chorus: RZA, GZA

When the MC's came, to live our their name
And to perform (forrrrm)
Some had, to snort cocaine (caiiinnne) to act insane (sannne)
with before Pete Rock-ed it on, now gone
that the mental plane (plaaanne) to spark the brain (brainnn)
with the building to be born
Yo RZA flip the track with the what to guy
Check em check chicka icka etta UHH

Verse One:

Fake niggaz get blitzed
and mic bites I swing swords and cut clowns
Shit is too swift to bite you record and write it down
I flow like the blood on a murder scene, like a syringe
on some loud howl shit, to insert a fiend
But it was yo ock, the shop stolen heart
Catch a swollen heart from not rollin smart
I put mad pressure, on phony wack rhymes that get hurt
Shit's played, like zodiac signs on sweatshirt
That's minimum, and feminine like sandals
My minimum table stacks a verse on a gamble
Energy is felt once the cards are dealt
With the impact of roundhouse kicks from black belts
that attack, the mic-fones like cyclones or typhoon
I represent from midnight to high noon
I don't waste ink, nigga I think
I drop megaton BOMBS more faster than you blink
Cause rhyme thoughts travel at a tremendous speed
Clouds of smoke, of natural blends of weed
Only under one circumstance is if I'm blunted
Turn that shit up, my clan in da front want it


Verse Two:

I'm on a Mission, that niggaz say is Impossible
But when I swing my swords they all choppable
I be the body dropper, the heartbeat stopper
Child educator, plus head amputator
Cause niggaz styles are old like Mark 5 sneakers
Lyrics are weak, like clock radio speakers
Don't even stop in my station and attack
while your plan failed, hit the rail, like Amtrak
What the fuck for? Down by law, I make law
I be justice, I sentence that ass two to four
round the clock, that state pen time check it
With the pens I be stickin but you can't stick to crime
Came through with the Wu, slid off on the DL
I'm low-key like seashells, I rock these bells
Now come aboard, it's Medina bound
Into the chamber, and it's a whole different sound
It's a wide entrance, small exit like a funnel
So deep it's picked up on radios in tunnels
Niggaz are fascinated how the shit begin
Get vaccinated, my logo is branded in your skin

Sick lyrics, they're so awesome
by MR DANTE on 6/8/2009 7:55am
hello my friends i got a question ...
Can you tell me wich movie is the INTRO talkin about shogun and samurai ???
by Wojo on 7/4/2009 10:44am
The intro is from "Shogun Assassin,"
which is one dope-ass movie. It's hard to find and you'll probably have to order it online, but it's worth the money. So sick the way this samurai cuts it up. Also note, Gza uses a LOT of clips from the movie in his whole album Liquid Swords. Str8 up, I remember listening to this when I was 15 back in 95 - str8 up Long Island style
by Ghost on 7/6/2009 4:54am
It's wu tan for the crown.
I like GZA but they are better as a team.
by Child Educator on 7/12/2009 8:38am
The Genius.

Props to those who grew up with this shit. I'm in the process of's...amazing.
by Mortal 1 ICC on 7/17/2009 2:22am
There was a year long gap between Liquid Swords and the first Ghostface album...I WORE THIS OUT...holloween '95. Listening to this album on LSD will really mess with your head with RZA's production subtle sound fx and GZA's crazy deep lyrics. I lament how GZA's latest work lacks verbal emotion. Great verbosity though. Peace.
by Fuck a name on 7/29/2009 9:04am
This was the first wu tang song I ever heard, back when i was in grade 9, listenin to this shit.. good times
by Tang on 9/27/2009 6:39pm
I met Gza and he is the coolest chillest guy. No crowd of body guards or fancy cars. He keeps it real when he's just chilling in a city he's visiting.
by I'm evil too. on 11/28/2009 7:22pm
This is the worst sounding song ever.
by Wu-Tang Forever on 4/8/2010 6:17pm
Amazing lyrics the whole album thru. One correction, it's "like a syringe on some wild out shit to insert a fiend"
by WuWuWuWu on 5/2/2010 3:18am
This song was, is, and will be hot forever. I'm 40yrs old and I don't care what yall youngsters think when I pull up bumping this knowledge in my caddy.
by GZAAAAAAAAAAAA on 5/4/2010 2:43am
the opening sample is from Shogun Assassin I. DOPE movie, I found there are 4 other movies that I copped off at a decent price. They're dope too, Daigoro (the cub) becomes more involved while pops (the lone wolf) kills everyone. While I digress...this song and album is tied with Only Built 4 Cuban Linx for best Wu solo jawn. WU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

by DrSpyz on 7/19/2011 6:20pm
Classic Wu in its purest Hop-Fu
I grew up on this stuff, Wu Tang is and has always been on another level, moving away from levels and into echelons, and this song just simply serves as a reminder:
"See, sometimes...
You gotta flash em back
See niggaz don't know where this shit started
Y'all know where it came from
I'm sayin we gonna take y'all back to the swords"
by hurrdurr on 8/10/2011 4:14pm
nope you're an asshole
by FUCKEN SPLIF1 on 10/17/2011 12:27am
@ I HEART BET. Fuck you and your lame ass music, lil wayne and soulja boy are garbage son. they all "rap" about the same shit; money, cars, and hoes. Wu-Tang Forever!
