  • Eminem – Kings Never Die lyrics

    [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
