Hope in the throws, cope or choke on the holes
Pokers roast in the coals, misanthropic and cold
El-P explains that we’re without hope, and falling down a hole. The poker he is referring to is something of a metal rod maybe used for prodding cattle. It heats up for us in the hot coals. Misanthropic means a hatred for humanity. Basically, he is saying we’re all getting fucked by the system…True Story? Can’t really deny that it isn’t true right? Inthainthaworld!
