Not Afraid Lyrics

Hook

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

(Intro)

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

(Verse 1)

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

(Hook)

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

(Verse 2)
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”
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
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!

(Hook)

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

(Bridge)

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

(Verse 3)

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 realise what you did, believe me you
I been through the ringer, 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 on it
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

(Hook)

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

The Real Slim Shady Video and Lyrics

The Real Slim Shady Lyrics

May I have your attention please?
May I have your attention please?
Will, The Real Slim Shady please stand up?
I repeat will, The Real Slim Shady please stand up?
We’re gonna have a problem here

Y’all act like you never seen a white person before

Lyrics Provided By ZoneLyrics.net

// // //

Jaws all on the floor like Pam, like Tommy just burst in the door
And started whoopin’ her ass worse than before
They first were divorce, throwin’ her over furniture
It’s the return of the, “Ah, wait, no way, you’re kidding
He didn’t just say what I think he did, did he?”
And Dr. Dre said, nothing you idiots
Dr. Dre’s dead, he’s locked in my basement!
Feminist women love Eminem
Chigga chigga chigga, “Slim shady, I’m sick of him

Look at him, walkin’ around grabbin’ his you-know-what
Flippin’ the you-know-who, yeah, but he’s so cute though!”
Yeah, I probably got a couple of screws up in my head loose
But no worse, than what’s goin’ on in your parents’ bedrooms
Sometimes, I wanna get on T.V. and just let loose, but can’t
But it’s cool for Tom Green to hump a dead moose
“My bum is on your lips, my bum is on your lips
And if I’m lucky, you might just give it a little kiss”
And that’s the message that we deliver to little kids
And expect them not to know what a woman’s clitoris is

Of course they gonna know what intercourse is
By the time they hit fourth grade
They got the discovery channel don’t they?
“We ain’t nothing but mammals”, well, some of us cannibals
Who cut other people open like cantaloupes
But if we can hump dead animals and antelopes
Then there’s no reason that a man and another man can’t elope
But if you feel like I feel, I got the antidote
Women wave your pantyhose, sing the chorus and it goes

I’m slim shady, yes I’m the real shady
All you other slim shadys are just imitating
So won’t The Real Slim Shady please stand up
Please stand up, please stand up?

‘Coz I’m slim shady, yes I’m the real shady
All you other slim shadys are just imitating
So won’t The Real Slim Shady please stand up
Please stand up, please stand up?

Will Smith don’t gotta cuss in his raps to sell his records
Well I do, so fuck him and fuck you too
You think I give a damn about a Grammy?
Half of you critics can’t even stomach me, let alone stand me
“But slim, what if you win, wouldn’t it be weird?”
Why? So you guys could just lie to get me here?
So you can, sit me here next to Britney Spears?
Shit, Christina Aguilera better switch me chairs
So I can sit next to Carson Daly and Fred Durst
And hear ’em argue over who she gave head to first

You little bitch, put me on blast on M.T.V
“Yeah, he’s cute, but I think he’s married to Kim, hee-hee!”
I should download her audio on MP3
And show the whole world how you gave Eminem VD
I’m sick of you little girl and boy groups, all you do is annoy me
So I have been sent here to destroy you
And there’s a million of us just like me
Who cuss like me, who just don’t give a fuck like me
Who dress like me, walk, talk and act like me
And just might be the next best thing but not quite me

‘Coz I’m slim shady, yes I’m the real shady
All you other slim shadys are just imitating
So won’t The Real Slim Shady please stand up
Please stand up, please stand up?

‘Coz I’m slim shady, yes I’m the real shady
All you other slim shadys are just imitating
So won’t The Real Slim Shady please stand up
Please stand up, please stand up?

I’m like a head trip to listen to, cause I’m only givin’ you
Things you joke about with your friends inside your living room
The only difference is I got the balls to say it
In front of y’all and I don’t gotta be false or sugarcoated at all
I just get on the mic and spit it
And whether you like to admit it, I just shit it
Better than ninety percent of you rappers out can
Then you wonder how can kids eat up these albums like Valiums

It’s funny, ’cause at the rate I’m goin when I’m thirty
I’ll be the only person in the nursin’ home flirting
Pinchin’ nurses asses when I’m jackin’ off with jergens
And I’m jerkin’ but this whole bag of Viagra isn’t working
And every single person is a slim shady lurkin’
He could be workin’ at Burger King, spittin’ on your onion rings
Or in the parkin’ lot, circling, screaming, “I don’t give a fuck!”
With his windows down and his system up

So, will the real shady please stand up?
And put one of those fingers on each hand up?
And be proud to be outta your mind and outta control
And one more time, loud as you can, how does it go?

I’m slim shady, yes I’m the real shady
All you other slim shadys are just imitating
So won’t The Real Slim Shady please stand up
Please stand up, please stand up?

‘Coz I’m slim shady, yes I’m the real shady
All you other slim shadys are just imitating
So won’t The Real Slim Shady please stand up
Please stand up, please stand up?

‘Coz I’m slim shady, yes I’m the real shady
All you other slim shadys are just imitating
So won’t The Real Slim Shady please stand up
Please stand up, please stand up?

‘Coz I’m slim shady, yes I’m the real shady
All you other slim shadys are just imitating
So won’t The Real Slim Shady please stand up
Please stand up, please stand up?

Ha ha
Guess there’s a slim shady in all of us
Fuck it, let’s all stand up

Video Details

The music video features Eminem performing the song in a psychiatric ward, a local Detroit neighborhood nearside a park, a fast-food joint, the Grammy Awards, and even in a factory where multiple clones of the rapper are produced. The video also features cameo appearances by Dr. Dre, D12, Kid Rock, Fred Durst, Carson Daly, Kathy Griffin, Pamela Anderson, Tommy Lee, and even a stuffed Bill the Cat doll can also be seen being held in possession by one of the mental patients in the hospital scenes.

Actress and comedian Kathy Griffin, who is also known for insulting celebrities in her act, appears in the video as an attending nurse in a psychiatric ward. Griffin said during a July 21, 2005, interview on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno that Eminem selected her for the video because fellow rapper Snoop Dogg told him she was “really funny.”[4]

The video also features Eminem dressed in a Robin-like superhero costume with a plastic butt chasing a boy band, taking one of its members down to the ground and putting ‘his bum on the man’s lips.’ The costume can be seen later in the “Without Me” music video following the release of The Eminem Show.

There are also more scenes showing one or more of the following (when the lyrics roll along with the video):

  • Two little boys watching the Discovery Channel on television with two rhinoceroses mating, then looking at each other in awe. (Of course, they’re gonna know what intercourse is by the time they hit fourth grade/They got the Discovery Channel, don’t they?)
  • Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee chasing each other around a couch and Pamela screaming in front of the camera. (…I smell cinnomin rolls!)
  • An obese man in underwear being enslaved by a sexy dominatrix with a paddle. (Yeah, I probably got a couple of screws up in my head loose, but no worse than what’s goin’ on in your parents’ bedrooms.)
  • A gay marriage is shown and Eminem breaks up the two men about to kiss each other (as a rejection to homosexuality) and showing disgust. (But if we can hump dead animals and antelopes/then there’s no reason that a man and another man can’t elope)
  • Eminem performing in a private room with all his clones produced from the factory with their heads bobbing to the music. (the chorus: ‘Cause I’m Slim Shady, yes, I’m the real Shady/all you other Slim Shadys are just imitating/So won’t the real Slim Shady please stand up?/Please stand up?/Please stand up?)
  • Eminem at the Grammy Awards dressing as Britney Spears, along with Fred Durst and Carson Daly pulling a blow-up doll of Christina Aguilera between their seats towards each other angrily until it flies out of the chair. (Christina Aguilera better switch me chairs so I can sit next to Carson Daly and Fred Durst, an’ hear ’em argue over who she gave head to first.)
  • A clip from a cartoon of a frog tap-dancing on a turtle (from the ‘Flip the Frog’ film, ‘Fiddlesticks’) can be seen on a TV in the hospital and the viewer laughs at it.
  • Eminem working in a fictional fast-food joint with an ‘Ask Me’ patch giving an obese woman her order and rejecting it because of the onion rings being forgotten, however he gets the onion rings and he spits in them, and gives the onion rings to the woman to complete her order and she eats the onion ring which Eminem spat on as she walks away. The same scene also shows Eminem driving recklessly around in circles in a parking lot in a blue. (He could be workin at Burger King, spitting on your onion rings/or in the parking lot, circling, screaming: “I don’t give a fuck!”/With his windows down and his system up)
