Chess - Wale

So you find it's a chess game. Except in this chess, the board is made of water that's just flowing, and all the chess pieces are smoke. You can make all the moves you want, they will not affect the outcome

In the grand scheme of life we like pieces on the board
Look inside yours, you a king, or a pawn?
I came from a scene where the kids on water
They [?], get your things, hit the border
Like a sicilian defense
Go ahead and play silly, you'll get billy clubbed to death
Welcome to the city, ain't no sympathy for rats
Where the whites move first and you go second, cause you're black
Was it Rayful, was it Raegan, did the 80's hold 'em back?
This is no connect four but blood spilling for connects
Years later n_ggas still up in that trap
Thank God that a n_gga had that rap
Cause after school, played that corner like a rook
That's when n_ggas getting book, out there tryna get their last move
He gon' need that check mate
And every night they take L's straight to the face
Let's play

In the grand scheme of life we like pieces on the board
Look inside yours, you a king, or a pawn?
Now for that truce, would you bishop double cross?
Here they move so many squares, now I'm [?] falling off
They was getting bread, getting on
Stupid n_gga couldn't grasp while my payers moving lawns
Now move along, pawns never get the Queens
I'm the only n_gga here like Ron Simmons in the ring
Now I'm winning in the streets
Rap, send me sh_t discreet
Bob Marley, Bob Dylan, Bob Fisher on that beat
Genius, me, fresh no esteban
Best be on your toes, you trying to avoid deblex
We up
