Eminem - Eminem - Sing For The Moment

These ideas are nightmares to white parents 
Whose worst fear is a child with dyed hair and who likes earrings 
Like whatever they say has no bearing, its so scary in a house that allows 
no swearing 
To see him walking around with his headphones blaring 
Alone in his own zone, cold and he dont care 
Hes a problem child 
And what bothers him all comes out, when he talks about 
His fuckin dad walkin out 
Cause he just hates him so bad that he blocks him out 
If he ever saw him again hed probably knock him out 
His thoughts are whacked, hes mad so hes talkin back 
Talkin black, brainwashed from rock and rap 
He sags his pants, do-rags and a stocking cap 
His step-father hit him, so he socked him back, and broke his nose 
His house is a broken home, theres no control, he just lets his emotions 
go... 

Sing with me, sing for the year 
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tears 
Sing with me now, just for today 
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away 

[Verse 2] 
Entertainment is changin, intertwinin with gangstas 
In the land of the killers, a sinners mind is a sanctum 
Holy or unholy, only have one homie 
Only this gun, lonely cause dont anyone know me 
Yet everybody just feels like they can relate, I guess words are a 
mothafucka they can be great 
Or they can degrade, or even worse they can teach hate 
Its like these kids hang on every single statement we make 
Like they worship us, plus all the stores ship us platinum 
Now how the fuck did this metamorphosis happen 
From standin on corners and porches just rappin 
To havin a fortune, no more kissin ass 
But then these critics crucify you, journalists try to burn you 
Fans turn on you, attorneys all want a turn at you 
To get they hands on every dime you have, they want you to lose your mind 
every time you mad 
So they can try to make you out to look like a loose cannon 
Any dispute wont hesitate to produce handguns 
Thats why these prosecutors wanna convict me, strictly just to get me off 
of these streets quickly 
But all they kids be listenin to me religiously, so im signin cds while 
police fingerprint me 
Theyre for the judges daughter but his grudge is against me 
If im such a fuckin menace, this shit doesnt make sense Pete 
Its all political, if my music is literal, and im a criminal how the fuck 
can I raise a little girl 
I couldnt, I wouldnt be fit to, youre full of shit too, Guerrera, that 
was a fist that hit you... 

Sing with me, sing for the year 
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tears 
Sing with me now, just for today 
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away 

[Verse 3] 
They say music can alter moods and talk to you 
Well can it load a gun up for you , and cock it too 
Well if it can, then the next time you assault a dude 
Just tell the judge it was my fault and ill get sued 
See what these kids do is hear about us totin pistols 
And they want to get one cause they think the shits cool 
Not knowin we really just protectin ourselves, we entertainers 
Of course the shits affectin our sales, you ignoramus 
But music is reflection of self, we just explain it, and then we get our 
checks in the mail 
Its fucked up aint it 
How we can come from practically nothing to being able to have any fuckin 
thing that we wanted 
Thats why we sing for these kids, who dont have a thing 
Except for a dream, and a fuckin rap magazine 
Who post pin-up pictures on their walls all day long 
Idolize they favorite rappers and know all they songs 
Or for anyone whos ever been through shit in their lives 
Till they sit and they cry at night wishin theyd die 
Till they throw on a rap record and they sit, and they vibe 
Were nothin to you but were the fuckin shit in they eyes 
Thats why we seize the moment try to freeze it and own it, squeeze it and 
hold it 
Cause we consider these minutes golden 
And maybe theyll admit it when were gone 
Just let our spirits live on, through our lyrics that you hear in our 
songs and we can... 

[CHORUS X2] 
Sing with me, sing for the year 
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tears 
Sing with me now, just for today 
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away
