Words shot plated metal lung which spun kids' carrousel
Vordul’s words are bullets shot from his “metal lung” (how else are you gonna get metal words?) that spin the heads of listeners the way a carousel spins around children riding.
The disturbingly juxtaposed images of a merry-go-round and someone shooting a gun display a common literary technique in 1990’s East Coast Alternative rap: The contrast of something childish and something dangerous.
