Heavy thoughts can't be held down by the laws of gravity

from RZA (Ft. Truth) – Tragedy Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

now this’s a mindfuck, but check this:

when one has “heavy thoughts” they tend to be pulled away from reality; lost in their sorrowful emotions, their head goes into the clouds, and they are often caught up in zoning out or daydreaming

therefore, such abstract things, can’t be held down by something physical such as gravity; the thinker must pull themselves from their lost state of mind and focus on the tasks at hand

however, these “heavy thoughts” could also refer to something positive; lofty ideas and dreams that are simply too big to be contained by anything as concrete as gravity, such as the rise of the wu-tang clan
