EMINEM - Ode To Detroit (Spoken Word) lyrics

rate me


There is a resilience that rises from somewhere deep within your streets

You can't define it, but you can feel it

You can feel it overflowing from the people who call you home

From people who are always proud to declare, 'I'm from Detroit'

You took our country from it's infancy, into industry

And your name still carries with it the idea of a nation built on steel, muscle and sweat

You became the city that carried the country

The city, like the sport, is built on dreams

People who would drive to you, driven to excel

Who know nothing is accomplished without hardwork, without sacrifice

When you hurt, we hurt

Your streets witness our struggle

Your bricks are our rage through the emptiness of each house shuttered, of each factory closed

We've lived through the ups and the downs

But we remain, Detroit

We can never turn our backs on you Detroit, because we are you

My home

The home of Motown, Cadillac and Joe Louis

Through all this, we cannot be defeated, because we have never been defeated

You've built us, you've moved us, you've shaped us

Sometimes down, but never out

Take strength in us, your people

Stay up Detroit.
