As a writer, I am a huge fan of Eminem. The man is a fucking wizard when it comes to words. I have no choice but to appreciate his poetic skill, which is far beyond anything I could ever be capable of.
His latest effort, with Skylar Grey, made me extra super excited because the lyrics feel like they might be taking some shots at organized religion. Check it out:
You could make me a believer Even if that shit ain’t true You could make me commit murder Baby, I’d kill for you In my eyes Even if you are wrong, you are right Even if it’s a terrible crime, it’s alright Cause I got your back, and I know you got mine I belong to the church of your name, Sing a song ‘Cause I worship the ground you walk on If I pray for you, I know you’ll be there You could make me a believer Even if that shit ain’t true You could make me commit murder Baby, I’d kill for you In my bed I believe every word that you’ve said Just a kiss and you make me forget All the bad, the battles we lost, the bodies we hid You don’t know, just how far I’d be willing to go You put the cracks into my moral code So you can count on me to always be there You could make me a believer Even if that shit ain’t true You could make me commit murder Baby, I’d kill for you Oh, lord, forgive my weary hands And for what they may do I’ll carry out his evil plans If he wants me to In your dream, you’re drownin’, I just waltz in and saved you I’m your alternate escape route, the altar you pray to Your ultimate savior, your behavior is altered Ain’t your fault ’cause I made you Brainwash and persuade you Gibraltar, your faith’ll never falter or waver One you call to in danger, I’m your guardian angel Nobody can tell you shit, you’ve already made your Mind just follow me, babe, you Won’t be sorry you stayed, you Always ride, whatever the plan is ‘Til the end, even if I led us into an ambush Even if we robbed a First National and cops caught us redhanded They’re coming at us, and we’re trapped with our backs up Against the wall, and it’s too tall You’d catapult me or hold the ladder for me Stay back to get captured, take the fall You make it all worth it Baby doll, you’re perfect the way you are Accidents happen All I know is you love me, that’s really all that matters And any who cross our paths are just collateral damage At your side, got your lateral, back, your front, diagonal Backwards, blackbirds, we attack like animals When they threaten what we have it’s a natural reaction You’ll lay a bitch flat on her back in a second flat for me Who tries to take your man from you It’s blasphemy, another casualty, you’ll go whatever route Do whatever you have to do, you’d blast for me I never doubt that That’s ’cause you You could make me a believer Even if that shit ain’t true You could make me commit murder Baby, I’d kill for you
