Eminem – Walk On Water (feat. Beyonce)


He’s goin’ too fast, is he gonna shout or curse out his mom?
Sales decline, the curtains drawn
Mission accomplished
flies rip apart my stomach
[Chorus: Beyoncé & Eminem]
[Outro: Eminem]
My arms, I stretch, but I can’t reach
[Verse 3: Eminem]
When I made a fuckin’ tightrope outta twine?
Is it the bar I set? Why are expectations so high?
I’ve been making my mistakes, oh if you only knew
[Verse 2: Eminem]
Is burnt to the ground, and all that’s left of my house is lawn
But when I do fall from these heights though, I’ll be fine
Kids look to me as a god, this is retarded
But I ain’t no Jesus
To tarnish whatever the legacy, love or respect

There was a time I had the world by the balls, eatin’ out my palm
I won’t pout or cry or spiral down or whine
But as long as I got a mic, I’m godlike
You’re gonna harp, gripe, and
pectations and meet ’em, but first
[Chorus: Beyoncé]
[Chorus: Beyoncé]
That the first of the Mathers discs set

And as I grow outta sight, outta mind, I might go outta mine
So me and you are not alike
I walk on water
I walk on water (shit)
I walk on water
But the only one who’s looking down on me that matters now’s DeShaun — am I lucky to be around this long?
And it always feels like I’m hittin’ the mark
But I’ll decide if it’s my final bow this time around, ’cause—
But only when it freezes
The crowds are gone
But if you bitches are tryin’ to strip me of my confidence
But only when it freezes
And it’s time to wash out the blonde
Now take your best rhyme, outdo it, now do it a thousand times
[Post-Chorus: Beyoncé]
Especially after the methadone
I walk on water
‘Cause I’m terrified to let you down, oh
Like, "This shit is garbage!"
‘Cause how do I ever let this mic go without a fight
‘Cause I’m only human, just like you
I walk on water

But only when it freezes (fuck)
I feel the ice cracking, because—
But I ain’t no Jesus

[Verse 1: Eminem]
I don’t think you should believe in me the way that you do
The "Speedom" verse, now Big Sean
I lose my grip like the flyin’ trapeze
A far cry from it, or it’s in my grasp, but as
Soon as I grab, squeeze
And I’m not Prince, so…
Will this step just be another misstep
If I walked on water, I would drown
Into the dark I plummet, now the sky’s blackening
At times juvenile, yes, I goof and I jest
I walk on water
Bitch, I wrote "Stan"

Now let ’em tell ya the world no longer cares or gives a fuck about your rhymes
It’s true, I’m a Rubik’s — a beautiful mess
And everyone who has doubt, remind
And now I’m gettin’ clowned and frowned on
Every album song I was spazzin’ the fuck out on
But I’m doin’ my best to not ruin your ex–
But only when it freezes
I’ve garnered? The rhyme has to be perfect, the delivery flawless

I’m not God-sent, Nas, Rakim, Pac, B.I.G., James Todd Smith
[Chorus: Beyoncé & Eminem]
Making my mistakes, oh if you only knew
Knowin’ that no matter what bars I come with
As yesterday fades and the Dresden home

God’s given me all this, still I feel no different regardless
They’re closin’ the set, I’m still pokin’ my head from out behind
I walk on water

If only they knew, it’s a facade and it’s exhaustive
‘Cause I’m terrified to let you down, oh
I don’t think you should believe in me the way that you do
But I ain’t no Jesus

A flawed human, I guess
‘Cause I’m only human, just like you
[Post-Chorus: Beyoncé]
I walk on water
Begs the question though
That’s a hard Vicodin to swallow, so I scrap these
Always in search of the verse that I haven’t spit yet
But I ain’t no Jesus
’Til I go sit in the car, listen and pick it apart
It’s the curse of the standard

‘Cause I’m just a man
I know the mark’s high, butter–
As pressure increases like khakis

And I try not to listen to nonsense
