Eminem – Not Afraid

Wow, this is by far Eminem’s most experimental single to date, and I’m really surprised by the self criticism of the Relapse album. Recovery should be out on June 22nd, and it will be real interesting to hear the whole thing. Clearly, Eminem is going the personal route again, without accents, truly giving his fans what they have been waiting for. The question is, can he live up to the hype, to deliver an album that will be compared to his previous efforts, meaning, anything before Encore.

For all of you that were harping on me over my comments about Relapse. I said nothing more than Eminem did.

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 “ehhhh”
Perhaps I ran them accents into the ground
Relax, I ain’t going back to that now
All I’m tryna say is get back, click-clack BLAOW
Cause I ain’t playin’ around

    “I’m not afraid to take a stand
    Everybody come take my hand
    We’ll walk this road together, through the storm
    Whatever weather, cold or warm
    Just let you know that, you’re not alone
    Holla if you feel that you’ve been down the 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 can try and read my lyrics off of this paper before I lay ’em
    But you won’t take this thing out these words before I say ’em
    Cause ain’t no way I’m let you stop me from causing mayhem
    When I say ’em or do something I do it, I don’t give a damn
    What you think, I’m doing this for me, so fuck the world
    Feed it beans, it’s gassed up, if a thing’s stopping me
    I’mma be what I set out to be, without a doubt undoubtedly
    And all those who look down on me I’m tearing 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 shit and
    Whether he’s on salary, paid hourly
    Until he bows out or he shit’s his bowels out of him
    Whichever comes first, for better or worse
    He’s married to the game, like a fuck you for christmas
    His gift is a curse, forget the earth he’s got the urge
    To pull his dick from the dirt and fuck the universe

    I’m not afraid to take a stand
    Everybody come take my hand
    We’ll walk this road together, through the storm
    Whatever weather, cold or warm
    Just let you know that, you’re not alone
    Holla if you feel that you’ve been down the same road

    Ok quit playin’ with the scissors and shit, 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 fuck your feelings, instead of getting crowned you’re getting 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 “ehhhh”

    Relax, I ain’t going back to that now
    All I’m tryna say is get back, click-clack BLAOW
    Cause I ain’t playin’ around
    There’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 tryna figure this crap out
    Thought I had it mapped out but I guess I didn’t
    This fucking black cloud’s still follow’s me around
    But it’s time to exercise these demons
    These motherfuckers are doing jumping jacks now!

    I’m not afraid to take a stand
    Everybody come take my hand
    We’ll walk this road together, through the storm
    Whatever weather, cold or warm
    Just let you know that, you’re not alone
    Holla if you feel that you’ve been down the same road

    And I just can’t keep living this way
    So starting today, I’m breaking out of this cage
    I’m standing up, Imma face my demons
    I’m manning up, Imma hold my ground
    I’ve had enough, now I’m so fed up
    Time to put my life back together right 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 even realize what you did, believe me you
    I been through the wringer, but they can 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 soley on handling my responsibility’s 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 lonely
    Cause the way I feel, I’m strong enough to go to the club
    Put a ??? and lift the whole liquor counter up
    Cause I’m raising the bar, I shoot for the moon
    But I’m too busy gazing at stars, I feel amazing and

    I’m not afraid to take a stand
    Everybody come take my hand
    We’ll walk this road together, through the storm
    Whatever weather, cold or warm
    Just let you know that, you’re not alone
    Holla if you feel that you’ve been down the same road”
