    Thanks Mutt. I went to take a look, but I got '404 - Seite nicht gefunden'; I guess it's either gone or moved. Could you give me another link?

    Also, anyone else got any insight or interpretations?

    Scientists look at the magnitude of devestation
    But the strands of heavy metal seem to have no relation
    But as always attention for large scale disasters
    Of course the instrumental spins a hundred times faster
    Many was taken, just at the price of a pawn
    The collective loss has left a thousand to mourn

    wu tang call themselves secientists cuz theyre knowledgeable. the devastation could b a lot of things. theres many ways 2 look at it.

    i always thought the second and 4th lines were conncted. 'heavy metal' and 'instrumental'. i thought it was a reference to the genre of music 'heavy metal' which was sampled in the instrumental. also 'heavy metal' would b a good choice cuz its usually seen as a chaotic form of music and lots of chaos is going on in these lines. but someone else talked about it being metal plates hich would also make sense

    the last 2 lines basicly mean many were taken for a small amount and this made many people mourn. also the track is called 'advance pawns' and i thought it was reference to wu tang when they began as just simple pawns in rap but then they took over everything and caused chaos like this song.

    these lyrics r also similiar 2 lyrics in uncut material

    'The nucleus of hip hop, rap's hallmark
    They had a citywide effort to keep us in the dark
    To the new details, distant wisp of light
    Evidence of a terrifying threats on microphone
    Rhyme stone, numerous parts combine
    Strands of heavy metal form the steel arch design
    Fit together seamlessly, everlasting rap'

    there were references 2 'uncut material' lyrics throughout 'advance pawns'.

    EDIT:also the strands of heavy metal having no relation gives the impression that its new or cant b comprehended or unpredictable
