25 to Life


Every time I hear the song 25 to life by Eminem, I don’t hear a song to Hip Hop from an International Entertainer.  I hear myself speaking to the drug/addiction that has done everything it could to destroy me.  I wrote the lyrics, out, but changed a few things.  At the end, I attached the real song.  Tell me what you think.  Can you see what I mean?

 

I don’t think you understand the sacrifices that I made

Maybe if you acted right I would have stayed

But I’ve already wasted over half of my of my life

I would’ve laid down and died for you,

I no longer cry for you

No more pain bitch, you took me for granted

took my heart and ran it straight into the planet

Into the dirt

I can no longer stand it

Imma take control of this relationship, command it.

Imma be the boss of YOU goddammit.

What I mean is that I will no longer let you control me

So you better hear me out, this much you owe me

I gave up my life for you, totally devoted to you, while I’ve stayed

while I’ve stayed faithful, all the way,

this is how I fucking get repaid

Look how I dress, fucking baggy sweats

Go to work a mess.

Always in a rush to get back to you I ain’t heard you yet

Not even once say you appreciate me, I deserve respect

I’ve done my best to give you nothing less than perfectness

It’s time I end this I have nothing left

but you keep treating me like a staircase,

it’s time you fucking step

I won’t be coming back, so don’t hold your fucking breath.you know what you have done no need to get in depth

so don’t hold your fucking breath.

you know what you have done, no need to get in depth

I told you, you’d be sorry if I fucking left

I’d laugh while you fuckin wept

Hows it feel now, yeah, funny ain’t it, you neglected me

Did me a favor although my spirit free

but a special place for you in my hear I have kept

Its unfortunate but it’s

too late

I feel like when I bend over backwards for you all you do is laugh

Cause that ain’t good enough you expect me to fold myself in half

Til I snap

YOU SAY I’M NOT loyal

All I do is useI have no life outside of that

I have no life outside of that

Don’t I give you enough of my time

You don’t think so, do you?

Jealous when I spend time with the girls

It feels like I am married to you. But tonight I’m serving you with papers

But tonight I’m serving you with papers

I’m divorcing you

Go marry someone else that can handle you,

your too dangerous

and take away their freedom like you did to me

Treat em like you don’t need them and

they ain’t worthy of you.

Feed em the same shit that you made me eat

I am moving on forget you.

OH NOW I’M SPECIAL

I DIDN’T FEEL SPECIAL WHEN I WAS WITH YOU

ALL I  EVER FELT WAS SICK and HELPLESSNESS

IMPRISONED BY A SELFISH BITCH

CHEWED ME UP AND SPIT ME OUT

I FELL FOR IT SO MANY TIMES

IT’S RIDICULOUS

AND STILL I STICK WITH THIS

I’M SICK OF THIS BUT IN MY SICKNESS AND ADDICTION

I miss you

YOU ARE AS ADDICTIVE AS THEY GET

EVIL AS THEY COME,

VINDICTIVE AS THEY MAKE THEM

MY FRIENDS KEEP ASKING ME WHY I CANT JUST WALK AWAY FROM YOU

I AM ADDICTED

TO THE PAIN, THE STRESS, THE DRAMA

I’M DRAWN IN SO I GUESS IMMA MESS

CURSED AND BLESSED

BUT THIS TIME

AINT CHANGING MY MIND

I’M CLIMBING OUT THIS ABYSS

YOU SCREAMING AS I WALK OUT THAT I WILL BE MISSED

YOUR GAMES WON’T WORK THIS TIME I WILL RESIST

 

FUCK YOU ADDICTION

I AM LEAVING YOU, MY LIFE SENTENCE IS SERVED BITCH

  1. I just love this. And this goes to show the versatility of music – its a song from a star who shares his own truth, you relate to it on a personal level – your struggle with addiction. And I, as a co-dependent all my life, can especially relate to this part “I AM ADDICTED, TO THE PAIN, THE STRESS, THE DRAMA, I’M DRAWN IN”. How cool is that, 3 individuals, strangers can share and relate to one song. I just love it and love music, a universal language 🙂

  2. Aaahhh..the more I see about you- the more we click.
    I love Eminem, I always have. My husband used to listen to this song all the time when I was really bad- he related it to us.
    I, same as you, saw it from my eyes and felt my addiction was the meaning…
    Did you know Sia and Eminem had a song together? As many times as I’ve heard all the CD’s I just learned this this week thanks to Amazon Music.
    I relate it to my issues with my mom and my subutex fight….
