Eminem - Cleaning Out My Closet

Album: The Eminem Show
Produced By: Eminem
Recording Year: 2002


[ Intro ]

Whereís my snare?
I have no snare in my headphones Ė there you go
Yeah.. yo, yo

[ Verse 1 ]

Have you ever been hated or discriminated against?
I have, Iíve been protested and demonstrated against
Picket signs for my wicked rhymes, look at the times
Sick as the mind of the motherfuckin kid thatís behind
all this commotion emotions run deep as oceanís explodin
Tempers flarin from parents just blow Ďem off and keep goin
Not takin nothin from no one give íem hell long as Iím breathin
Keep kickin ass in the mornin and takin names in the evenin
Leave Ďem with a taste as sour as vinegar in they mouth
See they can trigger me, but theyíll never figure me out
Look at me now; I bet ya probably sick of me now ainít you momma?
Iíma make you look so ridiculous now

[ Chorus ]

Iím sorry momma!
I never meant to hurt you!
I never meant to make you cry
But tonight Iím cleanin out my closet (one more time)
I said Iím sorry momma!
I never meant to hurt you!
I never meant to make you cry; but tonight
Iím cleanin out my closet

[ Verse 2 ]

I got some skeletons in my closet
and I donít know if no one knows it
So before they thrown me inside my coffin and close it
Iíma expose it; Iíll take you back to Ď73
before I ever had a multi-platinum sellin CD
I was a baby, maybe I was just a couple of months
My faggot father must have had his panties up in a bunch
cause he split, I wonder if he even kissed me goodbye
No I donít on second thought I just fuckin wished he would die
I look at Hailie, and I couldnít picture leavin her side
Even if I hated Kim, I grit my teeth and Iíd try
to make it work with her at least for Hailieís sake
I maybe made some mistakes
but Iím only human, but Iím man enough to face them today
What I did was stupid, no doubt it was dumb
But the smartest shit I did was take the bullets outta that gun
Cause Iída killed him, shit I woulda shot Kim and them both
Itís my life, Iíd like to welcome yíall to ďThe Eminem ShowĒ

[ Chorus ]

[ Verse 3 ]

Now I would never diss my own momma just to get recognition
Take a second to listen for who you think this record is dissin
But put yourself in my position; just try to envision
witnessin your momma poppin prescription pills in the kitchen
Bitchin that someoneís always goin throuh her purse and shitís missin
Goin through public housin systems, victim of Munchausenís Syndrome
My whole life I was made to believe I was sick when I wasnít
Ďtil I grew up, now I blew up, it makes you sick to ya stomach
doesnít it? Wasnít it the reason you made that CD for me Ma?
So you could try to justify the way you treated me Ma?
But guess what? Youíre gettin older now and itís cold when your lonely
And Nathanís growin up so quick heís gonna know that your phony
And Hailieís gettin so big now; you should see her, sheís beautiful
But youíll never see her Ė she wonít even be at your funeral!
See what hurts me the most is you wonít admit you was wrong
Bitch do your song Ė keep tellin yourself that you was a mom
But how dare you try to take what you didnít help me to get
You selfish bitch; I hope you fuckin burn in hell for this shit
Remember when Ronnie died and you said you wished it was me?
Well guess what, I am dead Ė dead to you as can be

[ Chorus ] x2
