RZA chopped samples from The Bar-Kays and Ann Sexton to craft track number 3. Method Man makes an appearance doing ad-libs on the song. “Living in the World” is quite possibly the most slept-on track on Liquid Swords, but contains some of GZA’s best rhymes.

Notable Lyrics
“MCs are gunned down like being run down with Mack trucks/They God struck, religious niggas call it bad luck.”

“I’m swingin’ swords strictly based on keyboards/Unbalanced like elephants and ants on see-saws.”
