Rotate the clock and the still hands reveal the time around the world.
Anonymous asked: i choose the first one, but i want one answer, the real answer
it bothers me that It doesnt even feel like a personal conversation considering pretty much anyone can read it, and by it being so public I feel really exposed which I loathe, and if you were a good person you would at least think of making an anonymous account so maybe it were a little less awkward; what is it that made you ever have any sort of interest in my persona?
My chain hits my chest
when I’m banging on the dashboard
my chain hits my chest
when I’m banging on the radio
suki zuky I’m coming in the Cherokee
gasoline there’s steam on the window screen
take it take it wheels bouncing like a trampoline
when I get to where I’m going
gonna have you trembling
“Suki, suki” means “drive, drive” in Arabic. In the music video Saudi Arabian women are driving and aren’t supposed to, so MIA’s saying “suki, suki”. They’re bad girls.
Further, سوقي (suuqii) is in the imperative singular feminine, in a form I think is Saudi colloquial — more formal would be اسوقي. So, it has an additional subtlety of telling a female to drive.
also the term “sooky sooky” has been a mainstay in r&b music and AAVE, so there’s maybe like this double meaning wordplay going on? cool!
