EminemKings Never Die

[Chorus: Gwen Stefani] Here to stay Even when I'm gone When I close my eyes Through the passage of time Kings never die [Verse 1: Eminem] I can hear the drummers drumming And the trumpets, someone's tryna summon someone, I know something's coming But I'm running from it to be standing at the summit And plummet, how come it wasn't what I thought it was Was it, too good to be true? Have nothing, get it all but too much of it Then lose it again, then I swallow hallucinogens Cause if not, where the hell did it go? Cause here I sit in Lucifer’s den by the dutch oven Just choosing to sin Even if it means I'm selling my soul, just to be the undisputed again Do whatever I gotta do just to win Cause I got this motherfucking cloud over my head Crown around it, thorns on it Cracks in it, bet you morons didn't Think I'd be back, did ya? How 'bout that I’m somehow now back to the underdog But no matter how loud that I bark, this sport is something I never bow-wow'd at I complain about the game, I shout and I pout, it's a love-hate But I found out that I can move a mountain of doubt Even when you bitches are counting me out, and I appear to be down for the count Only time I ever been out and about is driving around town with my fucking whereabouts, in a doubt cause I been lost tryna think of what I did to get here but I'm not a quitter Gotta get up, give it all I got or give up Spit or shit or stepped on but kept going I'm tryna be headstrong but it feels like I slept on my neck wrong Cause you're moving onto the next, but is the respect gone? Cause someone told me that (Kings never die) [Verse 2: Eminem] Don't give me that sob story liar, don't preach to the choir You ain't ever have to reach in the fire to dig deep Nobody ever handed me shit in life, not even a flyer Wouldn't even take shit into consideration Obliterate anyone in the way I think I see why a lot of rappers get on these features and try to show out on a track with me But it'd actually have to be a fucking blowout to get me to retire Tell these new artists that kings never die I know shit has changed in this age, fuck a Twitter page, did just say I've been upstaged? Why am I online? It's driving me crazy, I'm riding shotgun tryna get a gauge Almost hot, but I'm not running kaboom, with a stage pass and this shit And opinions sway, I can hear them say, if I stay passionate maybe I can stay Jay miraculous Comeback as if I went away, but detractors just say some bullshit for the Renegade Someone's gonna make me blow my composure Here I go again, to the stage and I feel like I'm in a cage They so want a champion to fall I still wonder why I laugh at 'em cause why carry when I'm all So fuck what these cynics say Just goes to show that when my back's against the wall And I'm under attack again, I'll act as if I'm posted up With this pented rage cause saw all these plaques in my office On the floor stacked against the door All be just metaphors for the odds of When you comin' back again cause all the accomplishments, accolades, awards And trophies just don't mean jack anymore Cause I'm here today and gone tomorrow And I'm not gonna be [Chorus: Gwen Stefani] Here to stay Even when I'm gone When I close my eyes Through the passage of time Kings never die [Verse 3: Eminem] I want it, I'm coming to get it, so you son of a bitches don't duck your gun and get rid of those Critics all end up in critical, think your shit is dope all you're gonna get is smoked then And I'm not stopping until I'm top again, all alone and on a throne Like a token of respect, or a homage poem, or an ode, I've been on Tossed in the air by my own arm, and launched so hard I broke my collarbone And it's my time to go, but I'm still not leaving Stop for no one, I don't know but I've been told that I should go Launch a Rover, knock it over, time to go for that pot of gold, cause [Bridge: Eminem] They say kings never die Just ask Jam Master Jay They just grow wings and they fly So, hands up, reach for the sky Try to hold up and provoke these moments Cause in a blink of an eye They'll be over [Verse 4: Eminem] Tryna secure your legacy like Shakur And ensure that nobody's ever gonna be what you were So before you're leaving this Earth You want people to feel the fury of a pure evil cerebral berzerk Deacon of words, syllable genius at work Plus I'm think that they're mistaking my kindness for weakness, distill it with meanness With some kind of back flipping burgers on the grill for some peanuts Secure us to arenas, call me Gilbert Arenas, still appeal to the dreamers I made it to the silverscreen where Rocky stepped with the demons Khalil on the beat cause making the beat ain’t the same feeling to me is killing the beat It's overfilling to me, what filling a seat is That sound, vomit, thirst and how common underground commons eat Outsider stomach growl, throbbing hunger Out-rhyming everyone, God just give me one shot I swear that I won't let you down I'mma be around forever, entertain even in the ground You ain't ever gonna hear me say I ain't [Chorus: Gwen Stefani] Here to stay Even when I'm gone When I close my eyes Through the passage of time Kings never die Oh, oh, oh Oh, oh, oh Kings never die
