Rock Bottom (Album Version)

Rock Bottom (Album Version)

Eminem

Ah yeah, yo!
This song is dedicated to all the happy people
All the happy people
That have real nice lives

That have now idea what's it like to be broke as fuck
I feel like I'm walking a tight rope
Without a circus net
I'm popping Percocet
I'm a nervous wreck
I deserve respect
But I'm working sweat for this worthless check
'Bout to burst this tec at somebody to reverse this debt
Minimum wage got my adrenaline cave
Pull the venom in rage
Especially when I'm engaged
And my daughters down to her last dipper
That's got my ass hyper
I prayed to god answers, maybe I'll ask nicer
Watching ballers well they flossing and pathfinders
These overnight stars become autograph signers
We'll all gone blow up and leave the past behind us
Along with the small fry's and average half pinters
Well player haters turn a bitch like they have vagina's
'Cause we see them dollar signs and let the cash blind us
Money will brainwash and leave your ass minus
Snakes slither in the grass spine less

[Chorus: x2]
That's rock bottom
When this life makes you mad enough to kill
That's rock bottom
When you want something bad enough to steal
That's rock bottom
When you feel you have had it up to hear
'Cause you mad enough to scream but you sad enough to tear

My life is full of empty promises
And broken dreams
I'm hopin' things look up
But there ain't no job openings
I feel discouraged hungry and malnourished
Livin' in this house with no furnace, un-furnished
I'm sick of working dead end jobs with lame pay
Tired of being hired and fired on the same day
But fuck it, you know the rules to the game, play
Cause when we die we know were all going the same way
It's cool to be player, but it sucks to be the fan
All you need is bucks to be the man
plus a luxury sedan
I'm comfortable and roomy in the six
They threw me in the mix
With all these gloomy loony lunatics
Walk around impressed
And smoke a pound of sess a day
And yesterday went by so quick it seems like it was yesterday
My daughter wants to throw the ball but I'm too stressed to play
Life half my life and throw the rest away

[Chorus: x2]

There's people that love me and people that hate me
But its the evil that made me this backstabber M-C called Slim Shady
I want the money, the woman, the fortune, the fame
Means I ain't burning in hell scorching in flames
Means I m stealing your checkbook and forging your name
This lifetime lives for eternal torture and pain
'Cause right now I feel like just hit the rock bottom
I got problems and now everybody on my block's got 'em
I'm screaming like those two cops when 2pac shot 'em
Holding two glocks, I hope your door got new locks on 'em
My daughters feet ain't got no shoe's or sock's on 'em
And them rings you wearing look like they got a few rock's on 'em
While you flaunt 'em I could be taking them to shops to pawn them
I got a couple of rings and a brand new watch you want 'em?
'Cause I never went gold off one song
I'm running up on someones lawn with guns drawn

[Chorus: x2]
