Not Afraid

Not Afraid

Eminem

[Chorus]
I'm not afraid (I'm not afraid)
To take a stand (to take a stand)
Everybody (everybody)
Come take my hand (come take my hand)
We'll walk this road together, through the storm
Whatever weather, cold or warm
Just lettin' you know that, you're not alone
Holla if you feel like you've been down the same road (same road)

(Yeah, it's been a ride)
(I guess I had to, go to that place, to get to this one)
(Now some of you, might still be in that place)
(If you're trying to get out, just follow me)
(I'll get you there)

You could try and read my lyrics off of this paper before I lay 'em
But you won't take the sting out these words before I say 'em
Cause ain't no way I'm a let you stop me from causin' mayhem
When I say 'em or do somethin' I do it, I don't give a damn
What you think, I'm doin' this for me, so f*** the world
Feed it beans, it's ga**ed up, if it thinks it's stoppin' me
I'm a be what I set out to be, without a doubt undoubtedly
And all those who look down on me I'm tearin' down your balcony
No if ands or buts, don't try to ask him why or how can he
From "Infinite" down to the last "Relapse" album
He's still s***tin', whether he's on salary paid hourly
Until he bows out or he s***s his bowels out of him
Whichever comes first, for better or worse
He's married to the game, like a f*** you for Christmas
His gift is a curse, forget the Earth, he's got the urge
To pull his dick from the dirt, and f*** the whole universe

[Chorus]

Okay quit playin' with the scissors and s***, and cut the crap
I shouldn't have to rhyme these words in the rhythm for you to know it's a rap
You said you was king, you lied through your teeth, for that
F*** your feelings, instead of gettin' crowned you're gettin' capped
And to the fans, I'll never let you down again, I'm back
I promise to never go back on that promise, in fact
Let's be honest, that last "Relapse" CD was eh
Perhaps I ran them accents into the ground
Relax, I ain't goin' back to that now
All I'm tryin' to say is get back, click-clack, blaow
Cause I ain't playin' around
It's a game called circle and I don't know how, I'm way too up to back down
But I think I'm still tryin' to figure this crap out
Thought I had it mapped out but I guess I didn't, this f***in' black cloud
Still follows, me around but it's time to exorcise these demons
These muh'f***ers are doin' jumpin' jacks now!

[Chorus]

And I just can't keep living this way
So starting today, I'm breaking out of this cage
I'm standing up, I'm a face my demons
I'm manning up, I'm a hold my ground
I've had enough, now I'm so fed up
Time to put my life back together right now! (now)

It was my decision to get clean, I did it for me
Admittedly, I probably did it subliminally
For you, so I could come back a brand new me you helped see me through
And don't realize what you did, believe me you
I been through the ringer, but they could do little to the middle finger
I think I got a tear in my eye, I feel like the king of
My world, haters can make like bees with no stingers
And drop dead, no more beef flingers
No more drama from now on, I promise
To focus solely on handlin' my responsibilities as a father
So I solemnly swear to always treat this roof, like my daughters
And raise it, you couldn't lift a single shingle on it!
Cause the way I feel, I'm strong enough to go to the club
Or the corner pub, and lift the whole liquor counter up
Cause I'm raising the bar
I'd shoot for the moon but I'm too busy gazin' at stars
I feel amazing and I'm not

[Chorus]
