Sing For The Moment

Sing For The Moment

Track by Eminem




These ideas are nightmares
for white parents
whose worst fear is
a child with dyed hair
and who likes earrings
Like whatever they
say has no bearing,
it's 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 don't car
He's a problem child
and what bothers him
all comes out
when he talks about, his fucki
cuz he just hates him so bad
that he blocks him out
If he ever saw him again he'd
probably knock him out
His thoughts are wacked
he mad so he's talkin' back
talkin' black, brainwashed
from rock and rap
He sags his pants, dorags
and a stocking cap,
his stepfather hit him
so he socked him back
and broke his nose, his house
is a broken home
There's no control, he just
let's his emotions go
C'mon! Sing with me (Sing!)
Sing for the year (Sing It)
Sing for the laughter
sing for the tear (C'mon!)
Sing it with me Just for today
Maybe tomorrow The good Lord
will take you away
Entertainment is changin'
intertwinin' with gangstas
in the land of the killers
a sinner's mind is
a sanctum unholy
only unholy
only have one homie
only this gun
lonely cuz don't anyone know me
Yet everybody just feels
like they can relate
I guess words are a mothafucka
they can be great
or they can degrate, or even
worse they can teach hate
It's 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, fa
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 won't hesitate
to produce handguns
That's 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
