Not Afraid
oleh: 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 stormWhatever weather, cold or warmJust lettin you know that, you're not aloneHolla if you feel like you've been down the same road (same road)
[Intro (during Chorus):]Yeah, it's been a rideI guess I had to, go to that place, to get to this oneNow some of you, might still be in that placeIf you're trying to get out, just follow meI'll get you there
You could try and read my lyrics off of this paper before I lay 'emBut you won't take the sting out these words before I say 'emCause ain't no way I'ma let you stop me from causin mayhemWhen I say 'em or do somethin I do it, I don't give a damnwhat you think, I'm doin this for me, so fuck the worldFeed it beans, it's gassed up, if it thinks it's stoppin meI'ma be what I set out to be, without a doubt undoubtedlyAnd all those who look down on me I'm tearin down your balconyNo if ands or buts, don't try to ask him why or how can heFrom "Infinite" down to the last "Relapse" albumhe's still shittin, whether he's on salary paid hourlyUntil he bows out or he shits his bowels out of himWhichever comes first, for better or worseHe's married to the game, like a fuck you for ChristmasHis gift is a curse, forget the Earth, he's got the urgeto pull his dick from the dirt, and fuck the whole universe
[Chorus]
Okay quit playin with the scissors and shit, and cut the crapI shouldn't have to rhyme these words in the rhythm for you to know it's a rapYou said you was king, you lied through your teeth, for thatFuck your feelings, instead of gettin crowned you're gettin cappedAnd to the fans, I'll never let you down again, I'm backI promise to never go back on that promise, in factLet's be honest, that last "Relapse" CD was ehhhPerhaps I ran them accents into the groundRelax, I ain't goin back to that nowAll I'm tryin to say is get back, click-clack, blaowCause I ain't playin aroundIt's a game called circle and I don't know how, I'm way too up to back downBut I think I'm still tryin to figure this crap outThought I had it mapped out but I guess I didn't, this fuckin black cloudstill follows, me around but it's time to exorcise these demonsThese muh'fuckers are doin jumpin jacks now!
[Chorus]
And I just can't keep living this waySo starting today, I'm breaking out of this cageI'm standing up, I'ma face my demonsI'm manning up, I'ma hold my groundI've had enough, now I'm so fed upTime to put my life back together right now! (now)
It was my decision to get clean, I did it for meAdmittedly, I probably did it subliminallyfor you, so I could come back a brand new me you helped see me throughAnd don't even realize what you did, believe me youI been through the ringer, but they could do little to the middle fingerI think I got a tear in my eye, I feel like the king ofmy world, haters can make like bees with no stingersand drop dead, no more beef flingersNo more drama from now on, I promiseto focus solely on handlin my responsibilities as a fatherSo I solemnly swear to always treat this roof, like my daughtersand raise it, you couldn't lift a single shingle on it!Cause the way I feel, I'm strong enough to go to the clubor the corner pub, and lift the whole liquor counter upCause I'm raising the barI'd shoot for the moon but I'm too busy gazin at starsI feel amazing and I'm
[Chorus]
