Not Afraid Lyrics - Eminem

Review The Song (12)



[Chorus:]
I'm not afraid (I'm not afraid)
To take a stand (to take a stand)
Everybody (everybody)
Come take my hand (come take my hand)
We'll walk this road together, through the storm
Whatever weather, cold or warm
Just lettin you know that, you're not alone
Holla if you feel like you've been down the same road (same road)

[Intro (during Chorus):]
Yeah, it's been a ride
I guess I had to, go to that place, to get to this one
Now some of you, might still be in that place
If you're trying to get out, just follow me
I'll get you there

You could try and read my lyrics off of this paper before I lay 'em
sponsored links
But you won't take the sting out these words before I say 'em
Cause ain't no way I'ma let you stop me from causin mayhem
When I say I'ma do somethin I do it,
I don't give a damn what you think,
I'm doin this for me, so fuck the world
Feed it beans, it's gassed up, if it thinks it's stoppin me
I'ma be what I set out to be, without a doubt undoubtedly
And all those who look down on me I'm tearin down your balcony
No if ands or buts, don't try to ask him why or how can he
From "Infinite" down to the last "Relapse" album
he's still shittin, whether he's on salary paid hourly
Until he bows out or he shits his bowels out of him
Whichever comes first, for better or worse
He's married to the game, like a fuck you for Christmas
His gift is a curse, forget the Earth, he's got the urge
to pull his dick from the dirt, and fuck the whole universe

[Chorus]

Okay quit playin with the scissors and shit, and cut the crap
I shouldn't have to rhyme these words in the rhythm for you to know it's a rap
You said you was king, you lied through your teeth, for that
Fuck your feelings, instead of gettin crowned you're gettin capped
And to the fans, I'll never let you down again, I'm back
I promise to never go back on that promise, in fact
Let's be honest, that last "Relapse" CD was ehhh
Perhaps I ran them accents into the ground
Relax, I ain't goin back to that now
All I'm tryin to say is get back, click-clack, blaow
Cause I ain't playin around
It's a game called circle and I don't know how, I'm way too up to back down
But I think I'm still tryin to figure this crap out
Thought I had it mapped out but I guess I didn't, this fuckin black cloud
still follows, me around but it's time to exorcise these demons
These muh'fuckers are doin jumpin jacks now!

[Chorus]

And I just can't keep living this way
So starting today, I'm breaking out of this cage
I'm standing up, I'ma face my demons
I'm manning up, I'ma hold my ground
I've had enough, now I'm so fed up
Time to put my life back together right now! (now)

It was my decision to get clean, I did it for me
Admittedly, I probably did it subliminally
for you, so I could come back a brand new me you helped see me through
And don't even realize what you did, believe me you
I been through the ringer, but they could do little to the middle finger
I think I got a tear in my eye, I feel like the king of
my world, haters can make like bees with no stingers
and drop dead, no more beef flingers
No more drama from now on, I promise
to focus solely on handlin my responsibilities as a father
So I solemnly swear to always treat this roof, like my daughters
and raise it, you couldn't lift a single shingle on it!
Cause the way I feel, I'm strong enough to go to the club
or the corner pub, and lift the whole liquor counter up
Cause I'm raising the bar
I'd shoot for the moon but I'm too busy gazin at stars
I feel amazing and I'm

[Chorus]

To: Guy That Talked Shit About Eminem | Reviewer: anonymous | 4/14/13

(rap rythm) Listen to me, fag, let's see you rap! I don't think Eminem wants to put up with this crap! I know none of us want to listen to that. It's like you shit your pants and mommy wan't there to help you. You ain't got skill to rap your anger out like Eminem, now do you? So fuck you! We all hope you get hit by a truck, you bastard! Run faster and faster, 'cause you ain't got shit on Marshall Mathers. (end rap) This is mostly intended for insulting purposes, but I still would like a rating of 1-5 along with an agreement to what I'm saying.

$ NOT AFRAID $ | Reviewer: $aks | 1/16/13

No one has any right to speak shit about Eminem if you don't like him just don't listen his songs, that's it grow up man what will happen if you'll bitch about him, nothing ha!ha, he has proved that he is a star and no one can defeat him .

Leave Eminem Alone | Reviewer: Krysti French | 9/14/12

I think he's changed a million times over since his first album "Infinite." Maybe all of u should just shut the hell up and let him express his emotions. Alot of people go through ups and downs in their life.

Shut up, you're just stupid a lot of Eminem's songs HELP some people cope with certain things but some stupid snob like you would never understand
and until you do how about YOU go eat shit and go back to your sad ass job at burger king

I'm Not Afraid | Reviewer: Stan | 6/30/12

Don't pay attention to the guy talking shit about Eminem, he's a snob who's never experienced real pain and that's why he doesn't understand Eminem's music, he is also an Everlast fan and he's just bitter cos Eminem made everlast look stupid Haha! ... Eminem has healed many broken spirits with his music. See, he uses the story of his life to help us deal with our problems emotionally... So to the guy who talks shit about Eminem i'd like to say: everlast can't sing, he can't rap but he wants to do both, no one wants to listen to an old fart trying to sing (and failing) and we all know he sucks at rapping, that's why DJ Lethal and House Of Pain left him, stupid honkey!... I know that ticked you off cos you're an Everlast fan, what're you? 80 years old?? Bitch!

For whovever wrote that about eminem | Reviewer: Charis Leath | 10/12/11

Whoever wrote that shit about Eminem bieng crap is wrong. He may swear and rap about the same thing but he's just trying to let it out. Let him be. So fuck you. If you don't like him, stop bitching. He's earned it, unlike you, and at least he can rap. So shut the fuck up you bitchy dick head.

for the fucker that talks shit about Eminem | Reviewer: EmS | 9/5/11

the motherfucker that talks like that about eminem musta been either to rich enough so he thinks everything in the world is really really nice or must know shit!I have been through many stuff and Eminem has helped with his songs...and except that.Like Roy Soldiers was not exactly fpr ending beefs,it was about not killing people if you have a beef with them,Not Afraid is about stopping some bad habbits,and these songs he had released about his mom and wife and that,is not telling everybody to kill their wife and mom,he is talking about HIS OWN wife and mother,and if you listened carefully to newer songs you would realise that he's done with that,in Going Through Changes when he supposedely talking to his daughters he tells "I Will Always Love Your Mom",and,2nd he had this mom thing settled after he learned she had cancer,and his mom is a real bitch..........if you had this kinda mom you might probably already had her killed....

wtf | Reviewer: sam | 6/5/11

whoever the fuck is dissin eminem- stop. who are you to judge anybody? yes- he raps about similar things frequently- but has it ever occured to you the he just is trying to find the right way to word his emotions? If you dont like him- then dont bitch. all the better to eminem; because unlike you- hes earned it.

outta dis world | Reviewer: RapItUp | 6/4/11

u dont get it do u?eminem is the king of rap.hes not releasin it so we can understand dat hes unstable, hes releasin it to express his own emotions.dats how he vents, OK? hes ReAL.stop h8in ffs.all of us hav issues, only hes brave enough to put a voice to them and vent, while at the same time reaching out to anyone who might be going through hard times

GREAT LYRICS MINUS THE FOUL WORDS | Reviewer: WILSON MONKEY | 5/27/11

EMINEM HAS SUCH A TESTIMONY FOR WHERE HE HAS BEEN AND OVERCOMING, IF KIDS COULD GET DOWN TO THE NITTY GRITTY OF HIS WORDS THEY WOULD SEE THAT HE IS SAYING MAKE A CHANGE, ITS WORTH IT. HE HAS BEEN DOWN ROADS NO ONE WANTS TO TRAVEL AND OVERCOME..AWESOME---JUST WISH THE UGLY WORDS WEREN'T THERE, LETS EMPHASIZE THE MEANING NOT THE CUSSIN

Go away Eminem | Reviewer: se escribe doushe | 5/21/11

How do people keep getting suckered in to thinking Eminem has anything to say? I mean, yes, purely from the standpoint of how the music sounds, a lot of Eminem's music is legit. But he is still rapping about the SAME garbage he has his whole career. Wasn't Toy Soldiers about giving up beefs and now he's still promising to give them up? That song came out how many years ago? And how many songs can you you write about abusing your child's mother or your own mother? Having mommy issues is one thing. You had a fucked up child hood, okay (although rapping about raping your mom is maybe a little too far... see The Marshall Mathers LP, one of the first songs). However, the way Eminem has thrust so much of the drama in his daughter's personal life into the spotlight is shameful. Down right shameful. Don't you think rapping about committing violent acts against the mother of your child will have consequences? And then Eminem get's MASSIVELY butt hurt when Whitey Ford suggests his daughter might not be his own. After all, I'm pretty sure Eminem calls his wife names that call her fidelity into question. Why do thousands of people know his daughter's name? And why is his daughter's name rarely (if ever) used in a context that suggests she has a stable home life? Every family has problems but you don't broadcast them to the world. Eminem's lack of regard for his responsibilities as a father are pitiful. Eminem is not a man in my eyes and should feel the deepest shame possible for his shortcomings as a Father. Obviously Eminem has overcome significant obstacles in his life starting in his early childhood. Obviously consequences on his personality ensue. However, you are 38 years old!!!! Stop boisterously pimping your angry-but-at-the-same-time-emo-teenager character. Please stop trying to enlighten the world or explain why you are such a fuck up. We get it. We have over a decade of music to draw our own conclusions as to your disposition. If you stop being a fuck up (ie you don't mention your family in the lime light anymore, even if it's to tell us what a great father you've become) and have something to say please do. You have a great deal of musical talent. Until then, eat shit and die.
