Treasure, loose cannons span the starboard bow
The clippership dipped in truth famine pressure
Cabin fever meter pegging ludicrous

from Aesop Rock – Big Bang Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

You have gotten what you need a(treasure) but your (loose cannons) defenses and violent ways are on your sides so not in front of you or behind you not in the path which you have taken but on your sides for who trys to interfere with your path (span the starboard bow), your vessel which has gotten you what you need. the treasure being worldly possiensons your defenses being the actions you have made to get it or are there just in case and your vessel being your body. but at end of it you have seen the truth of your ways and you are starving (famine) for something else and you are under pressure of something else and you just want to leave (cabin fever) the body containing you and you can’t take it (meter pegging ludicrous)
