Eminem - Rock Bottom

Album: The Slim Shady LP
Produced By: DJ Spinna
Recording Year: 1999


[ Intro ]

This song is dedicated Ė to all the happy people
All the happy people Ė who have real nice lives
And who have no idea what itís like, to be broke as fuck

[ Verse 1 ]

I feel like Iím walkin a tight rope, without a circus net
Poppin perkaset, Iím a nervous wreck
I deserve respect; but I work and sweat for this worthless check
Iím bout to burst this tech at somebody to reverse this debt
Minimum wage got my adrenaline caged
Full of venom and rage, Ďspecially when Iím engaged
and my daughterís down to her last diaper, itís got my ass hyper
I pray that God answers, maybe Iíll ask nicer
Watchin ballers while they flossin in they Pathfinders
These overnight stars becomin autograph signers
We all long to blow up and leave the past behind us
Along with the small fryís and average half pinters
But playa haters turnin bitch like they have vaginas
Cause we see them dollar signs and let the cash blind us
Moneyíll brainwash you and leave yoí ass mindless
when snakes slither in the grass spineless

[ Chorus ] x2

Thatís Rock Bottom Ė when this life makes you mad enough to kill
Thatís Rock Bottom Ė when you want somethin bad enough to steal
Thatís Rock Bottom Ė when you feel like youíve had it up to here
Cause you mad enough to scream but you sad enough to tear

[ Verse 2 ]

My life is full of empty promises and broken dreams
Iím hopin things look up; but there ainít no job openings
I feel discouraged, hungry and malnourished
Living in this house with no furnace, unfurnished
And Iím sick of workin dead end jobs with lame pay
And Iím tired of being hired and fired the same day
But fuck it, if you know the rules to the game play
Cause when we die we know we all going the same way
Cause itís cool to be player, but it sucks to be the fan
When all you need is bucks to be the man, plus a luxury sedan
Iím comfortable and roomy in a six
But they threw me in the mix with all these gloomy lunatics
who walk around depressed, and smoke a pound of sess a day
And yesterday went by so quick it seems like it was just today
My daughter wants to throw the ball but Iím too stressed to play
Live half my life and throw the rest away

[ Chorus ]

[ Verse 3 ]

Thereís people that love me, and people that hate me
But itís the evil that made me this backstabbin deceitful and shady
I want the money, the women, the fortune and fame
if it means I end up burnin in hell scorchin in flames
if it means Iím stealin your checkbook and forgin your name
This lifetime bliss for eternal torture and pain
Cause right now, I feel like just hit the rock bottom
I got problems Ė now everybody on my blocks got Ďem
Iím screamin like them two cops when Tupac shot Ďem
Holdin two glocks, hope your doors got new locks on íem
My daughterís feet ainít got no shoes or socks on Ďem
And them rings you wearin look like they got a few rocks on íem
And while you flauntin íem I could be takin íem to shops to pawn íem
I got a couple of rings and a brand new watch, you want íem?
Cause I ainít never went gold off one song
Iím runnin up on someoneís lawn with guns drawn

[ Chorus ]
