I been writing so dark and for so long, my pen is pale Where Sinners Dwell by Slaughterhouse

When you use a pen for a long time, obviously it runs out of ink. Also, like a person deprived of sunlight who’s skin pigmentation turns pale, his rhymes are so dark that his pen loses its color.

You'll want to be given a bath

Dirty, meaning both raw and unclean that…

You’ll want to be given a bath

I got soccer moms
Puttin' Glocks in their palms and wildin' out to opera songs

There are several ironic things said here

  1. Soccer moms are quite unlikely to be carrying guns

  2. Soccer moms are unlikely to “wild out”

  3. An opera concert is the least likely place to either bring a gun to, or wild out at

Celph can make quite the influence obviously
