My questions have triggers, killin' when raised
So load up your empty guns and fill in the blanks
My metal gears solid and yes it's makin' noise
But that’s over your heads, exclamation point
This is one of my personal fave lines in the whole song. I raise questions like others raise guns, hence “my questions have triggers”. Load up your empty guns and fill in the blanks. You fill in the blanks of a question with the answers. You also fill in the blanks in a gun with bullets, therefore, this is just an elaborate way to say, ASK QUESTIONS. Question everything. My “Metal Gears Solid” is a reference to the gun (questions) and the videogame “Metal Gear Solid” where you play an Agent named Snake who goes on various secret missions in more than normal situations. The gun is being fired and thus “makin' noise”. The last part ties it all together. This line is one of the more complex because all the metaphors, double entendres and references so it may go “over peoples heads” (anybody who raps a little more complex than most has heard that before…http://rapgenius.com/Lupe-fiasco-dumb-it-down-lyrics) just like the exclamation points that appear over the heads of soldiers who spot Snake in Metal Gear Solid.
