Eminem - Legacy

[Polina]
Tell me where to go
tell me what to do
I'll be right there for you
Tell me what to say
don't matter if it's true
I'll say it all for you

[Eminem]
I used to be the type of kid that
would always think the sky is falling
Why am i so differently wired?
Am i a martian?
What kind of twisted experiment
am i involved?
Cause i don't belong in this world
that's why i'm scoffing at authority
defying often
flying off at the handle
with my mom, no dad
so i'm non-compliant at home
at school I'm just shy and awkward
and no i don't need
no goddamn psychologist
tryna diagnose why i have
all these underlying problems
thinking he can try and solve 'em

I'm outside chalking up
drawings on the sidewalk
and in the front drive talking to myself
either that or inside hiding off in
the corner somewhere quiet
trying not to be noticed
I'm crying and sobbing
I had a bad day at school
so i ain't talking
some cocksucker shoved me
into a fucking locker
he said i eyeballed him

[Polina]
And if you fall
I'll get you there
I'll be your savior
from all the wars
that are fought
inside your world
please have faith
in my words

Cause
This is my legacy (legacy)
This is my legacy (legacy)
There's no guarantee
It's not up to me
you can only see
This is my legacy (legacy)
Legacy (legacy)


[Eminem]
I used to be the type of kid that
would always think the sky is falling
Why am i so differently
wired in my nogging?
Cause sporadic
as my thoughts come
It's mind boggling
Cause i obsess on everything
and my mind it's small shit
Bothers me but now my father
he said Sayonara, then split
but i don't give a shit
I'm fine long as
there's batteries in my Walkman
nothing is the matter with me
shit look at the bright side
at least i ain't walking
I bike ride through the
neighborhood of my apartment
Complex on a ten speed
which I've acquired parts that i
find in the garbage
a frame and put tires on it
Headphones on straight ahead
and kids try to start shit
but if this all there is
for me Life offers

Why bother even try
and put up a fight it's nonsense
but i think a lightbulb
just lit up in my conscience
what about them rhymes
I've been jottin'
They are kinda
giving me confidence
instead of tryna escape
through my comics
Why don't i just blast
a little something like Onyx
To put me in the mood
to wanna fight and write songs
that say what i wanna say to the kid
that said that i eyeballed him
Grab hold of my balls
like that's right fight's on bitch
who would've knew from
the moment i turned the mic on
I could be iconic
and my conquest is
Word to Phife Dawg
from a Tribe Called Quest

[Polina]
This is my legacy (legacy)
This is my legacy (legacy)
There's no guarantee
It's not up to me
you can only see
This is my legacy (legacy)
Legacy (legacy)

[Eminem]
I used to be the type of kid that
would always think the sky is falling
Now i think the fact that
I'm differently wired's awesome
Cause if i wasn't
I wouldn't be able to work
words like this and connect lines
like crosswords
and use my enemy's
words as strength
to try and draw from
and get inspired off'em
Cause all my life i was told
and taught i am not shit
by you wack fucking giant
sacks of lying dogshit
Now you shut up bitch
I am talking
Thought i was full
of horseshit and now
you fucking worship the ground
in which i am walking
Me against the world so what?
I'm Brain Dawkins
versus the whole 0
and 16 Lions offens

So bring on the Giants Falcons
and Miami Dolphins
It's the body bag game
bitch i'm supplying coffins
Cause you dicks butt kiss
a bunch of brian baldingers
you gon die a ball licker
I've been diabolical
with this dialogue
since 99 Rawkus
You don't respect the legacy
i leave behind y'all can
suck a dick
The day you beat me
pigs'll fly out my ass
and a flying saucer
full of Italian sausage
The most high exalting
and i ain't halting
till i die of exhaustion
inhale my exhaust fumes
The best part about me is i am not you
i am me, i'm a fire Marshall
and this is my

[Polina]
Legacy (legacy)
This is my legacy (legacy)
There's no guarantee
It's not up to me
you can only see
This is my legacy (legacy)
Legacy (legacy)
