But, music is reflection of self, we just explain it, and then we get our checks in the mail.
No matter how many fish in the sea, it'll feel so empty without me.
This world is mine for the taking, make me king!
They say music can alter moods and talk to you. Well, can it load a gun for you and cock it too?
I'm trapped, if I could go back, I never would've rapped.
If they don't let us in through the front? We'll come through the side!
A lot of people think that what I say on records, or what I talk about on a record, that I actually do in real life, or that I believe in it.
That's why we seize the moment, and try to freeze it and own it, squeeze it and hold it, because we consider these minutes golden.
Maybe they'll admit it when we're gone. Just let our spirits live on, throughout lyrics that you hear in our songs!
Slim Shady, Eminem was the old initials.
I stuck my dick in this game like a rapist. They call me 'Slim Roethlisberger'!
I'd shoot for the moon, but I'm too busy gazing at stars.
Moby? You can get stomped by Obie!
Question is, are you bozos smart enough to feel stupid?
More pain inside of my brain than in the eyes of a little girl inside of a plane aimed at the World Trade!
I take seven kids from Columbine, stand them all in line, add an AK-47, a revolver, a nine a MAC-11 and it ought to solve the problem of mine.
I don't rap for dead presidents; I'd rather see the president dead. It's never been said, but I set precedents.

Marshall Bruce Mathers III (born 17 October 1972), more widely known by his stage names Eminem and Slim Shady, is an Academy Award-winning actor and Grammy-winning American rapper.
