EMINEM - Kings Never Die Lyrics

ft. Gwen Stefani



(Chorus)
Here to stay
Even when I'm gone
When I close my eyes
Throw the passage of time
Kings never die

(Verse)
I can hear the drummers drummin’
And the trumpets, someone's tryna summon someone, I know somethin's comin’
But I'm runnin’ from it to be standin’ at the summit
And plummet, how come it wasn't what I thought it was
Was it, too good to be true?
Have nothin’, get it all but too much of it
Then lose it again, then I swallow hallucinogens
Cuz if not, where the hell did it go?
Cuz here I sit in Lucifer’s den by the ditch oven
Just choosin’ to sin
Even if it means I'm sellin’ my soul, just to be the undisputed again
Do whatever I gotta do this to win
Cuz I got this mutherfuckin’ cloud over my head
Crown around it, thorns on it
Cracks in it, bet you morons didn't
Think I'd be back, did you?
How 'bout that I’m somehow now back to the underdog
But no matter how loud that I bark, this sport is somethin’ I never bow-wow that
I complain ‘bout 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 countin’ me out, and I appear to be down for the count
Only time I ever been out and ‘bout is drivin’ around town with my fuckin’ whereabouts, in a doubt Cuz
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 goin’
I'm tryna be headstrong but it feels like I slept on my neck wrong
Cuz you're movin’ into the next, but is the respect gone?
Cuz someone told me that
(Gwen Stefani) Kings never die
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 fuckin’______(?)
Tell these new artists that kings never die
I know shit has change in this age, fuck on Twitter page, did just say I've been upstaged?
Why i’m online? It's drivin’ me crazy, I'm ridin’ shotgun try to get a gauge
Almost hot, but I'm not runnin’ kabob, with a stage pass and this shit
And opinions sway, I can hear them say, if I stay passionate maybe I can stay Jay as miraculous
Comeback as if I went away, but detractors just say some bullshit for the renegades
Someone's gon’ make me blow my composure
Here I go again, to the stage and I feel like I am in a cage
They so want a champion to fall
I still wonder why I laugh at them cuz why carry when I'm all
So fuck what these cynics say
Just goes to show that when my back against the wall
And I'm under attack again, I'll act as if I'm posted up
With this panted rage cuz I saw all these plaques in my office
On the floor stacked against the door
All be just metaphors for the odds of
When you coming back again cuz all the accomplishments, accolades, awards
And trophies just don't mean jack anymore
Cuz I'm here today and I’m gone tomorrow
And I'm not gon’ be

(Chorus)

(Verse)
I want it, I'm comin’ 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 gon’ get is smoked then
And I'm not stoppin’ until I'm on 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 leavin’
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
Cuz

(Bridge)
They say kings never die
Just ask Jam Master Jay
They just growin’ wings and they fly
So, hands up, reach for the sky
Try to hold up and provoke these moments
Cuz in a blink of an eye
They'll be over

(Verse )
Try to secure your legacy like Shaker
And ensure that nobody's ever gon’ be what you were
So before you're leavin’ this Earth
You want people to feel the fury of a pure evil cerebral berserk
Deacon of words, syllable genius at work
Plus I'm think that they're mistakin’ my kindness for weakness, distill it with meanness
With some kind of back flippin’ 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 silver screens where Rocky stepped with the demons
Khalid on the beat Cuz makin’ the beat ain’t the same feelin’ to me is killin’ the beat
It's overfillin’ to me, what fillin’ a seat is
That sound, vomit, thirst and how common underground commons go eat
Outsider stomach growl, throbbin’ hunger
Out rhymin’ everyone, God just give me one shot
I swear that I won't let you down
I'ma be around forever, entertain even in the ground
You ain't ever gon’ hear me say I ain't

(Chorus)

(Outro)
Ooh, ooh, ooh x 2
Kings never die
