Eminem – Walk On Water (feat. Beyonce)

There was a time I had the world by the balls, eatin’ out my palm
‘Cause I’m only human, just like you
[Outro: Eminem]
’Til I go sit in the car, listen and pick it apart
He’s goin’ too fast, is he gonna shout or curse out his mom?
To tarnish whatever the legacy, love or respect
Begs the question though
I walk on water
I walk on water
But only when it freezes (fuck)
Is burnt to the ground, and all that’s left of my house is lawn
I don’t think you should believe in me the way that you do

Now take your best rhyme, outdo it, now do it a thousand times
You’re gonna harp, gripe, and
[Chorus: Beyoncé]
So me and you are not alike
‘Cause I’m terrified to let you down, oh

But the only one who’s looking down on me that matters now’s DeShaun — am I lucky to be around this long?
Will this step just be another misstep
But only when it freezes
Now let ’em tell ya the world no longer cares or gives a fuck about your rhymes
Sales decline, the curtains drawn
The "Speedom" verse, now Big Sean
I won’t pout or cry or spiral down or whine
Knowin’ that no matter what bars I come with
Into the dark I plummet, now the sky’s blackening
When I made a fuckin’ tightrope outta twine?
I don’t think you should believe in me the way that you do
Like, "This shit is garbage!"
But when I do fall from these heights though, I’ll be fine
But I ain’t no Jesus
I know the mark’s high, butter–
[Chorus: Beyoncé]
A flawed human, I guess
I walk on water
Bitch, I wrote "Stan"
My arms, I stretch, but I can’t reach
God’s given me all this, still I feel no different regardless
[Chorus: Beyoncé & Eminem]
But I’ll decide if it’s my final bow this time around, ’cause—

‘Cause how do I ever let this mic go without a fight

And as I grow outta sight, outta mind, I might go outta mine
That the first of the Mathers discs set

[Verse 3: Eminem]

I’m not God-sent, Nas, Rakim, Pac, B.I.G., James Todd Smith
And it always feels like I’m hittin’ the mark
But if you bitches are tryin’ to strip me of my confidence
Kids look to me as a god, this is retarded
Every album song I was spazzin’ the fuck out on
[Post-Chorus: Beyoncé]
The crowds are gone
If only they knew, it’s a facade and it’s exhaustive
I walk on water
I walk on water
But I ain’t no Jesus
And I try not to listen to nonsense
I walk on water
And it’s time to wash out the blonde

Making my mistakes, oh if you only knew
A far cry from it, or it’s in my grasp, but as
I walk on water
I feel the ice cracking, because—
The rhyme has to be perfect, the delivery flawless I’ve garnered?
[Chorus: Beyoncé & Eminem]
‘Cause I’m just a man
Mission accomplished
They’re closin’ the set, I’m still pokin’ my head from out behind
But only when it freezes
I lose my grip like the flyin’ trapeze
As pressure increases like khakis
If I walked on water, I would drown
And now I’m gettin’ clowned and frowned on
But I ain’t no Jesus
At times juvenile, yes, I goof and I jest
I’ve been making my mistakes, oh if you only knew

Especially after the methadone
And I’m not Prince, so…
‘Cause I’m terrified to let you down, oh
But I ain’t no Jesus
And everyone who has doubt, remind
But as long as I got a mic, I’m godlike
But I’m doin’ my best to not ruin your ex–
I walk on water (shit)
Is it the bar I set? Why are expectations so high?
[Post-Chorus: Beyoncé]
That’s a hard Vicodin to swallow, so I scrap these
flies rip apart my stomach
But only when it freezes
‘Cause I’m only human, just like you

Soon as I grab, squeeze
Always in search of the verse that I haven’t spit yet

[Verse 1: Eminem]
pectations and meet ’em, but first

As yesterday fades and the Dresden home
[Verse 2: Eminem]
It’s the curse of the standard
It’s true, I’m a Rubik’s — a beautiful mess
