Eminem – Survival Lyrics

[Hook: Liz Rodrigues]
This is survival of the fittest
This is do or die
This is the winner takes it all
So take it all, a-all, a-all, a-all

[Verse 1]
Wasn’t ready to be no millionaire, I was ill-prepared
I was prepared to be ill though, the skill was there
From the beginning, it wasn’t ’bout the ends
It was ’bout busting raps and standing for something – fuckin’ acronym
Cut the fucking act like you’re happy, I’m fucking back again
With another anthem, why stop when it doesn’t have to end
It ain’t over ’til I say it’s over – enough when I say enough
Throw me to them wolves and close the gate up
I’m afraid of what’ll happen to them wolves, when the thought
Of being thrown into an alligator pit, I salivate at it, wait is up
Hands up like it’s 12 noon, nah homie, hold them bitches straighter up
Wave ’em ’til you dislocate a rotator cuff, came up rough
Came to ruffle feathers, nah, egos, I ain’t deflate enough
Last chance to make this whole stadium erupt cause

[Hook: Liz Rodrigues]
This is survival of the fittest
This is do or die
This is the winner takes it all
So take it all, a-all, a-all, a-all

[Verse 2]
I can see the finish line with each line that I finish
I’m so close to my goals, I can almost pole vault over the goal post
And if I don’t got enough in the tank, maybe I can just siphon enough
To fill up this last can, man will I survive in this climate or what?
They said I was washed up, and got a blood bath
I’m not a rapper, I’m an adapter – I can adjust
Plus, I can just walk up to a mic and just bust
So, floor’s open if you’d like to discuss
Top 5 in this mothafucka and if I don’t make the cut, what?
Like I give a fuck but I light this bitch up like I’m driving a truck
Through the side of a pump, 0 to 60 hop in and gun it
Like G-Unit without the hyphen, I’m hyping ’em up
And if there should ever come a time where my life’s in a rut
And I look like I might just give up, eh, might’ve mistook
Me for bowing out I ain’t taking a bow, I’m stabbing myself
With a fucking knife in the gut, while I’m wiping my butt
Cause I just shitted on the mic and I like getting cut
I get excited at the sight of my blood, you’re in a fight with a nut
Cause I’mma fight ’til I die or win, biting the dust, it’ll just make me angrier
Wait, let me remind you of what got me this far, picture me quitting
Now draw a circle around it and put a line through it, slut
It’s survival of what?

[Hook: Liz Rodrigues]
This is survival of the fittest
This is do or die
This is the winner takes it all
So take it all, a-all, a-all, a-all

[Verse 3]
So get your ideas, stack your ammo
But don’t come unless you come to battle, now mount up, jump in the saddle
This is it – it’s what you eat, sleep, piss and shit
Live, breathe, your whole existence just consists of this
Refuse to quit, fuse is lit, can’t defuse the wick
If I don’t do this music shit, I’ll lose my shit
Ain’t got shit to lose, it’s the moment of truth
It’s all I know how to do as soon as I get thrown in a booth, I spit
But my respect is overdue, I’m showing you the flow no one do
Cause I don’t own no diploma for school, I quit
So there’s nothing for me to fall back on, I know no other trade
So you’d better trade your fucking mics in for some tool-box-es
Cause you’ll never take my pride from me, it’ll have to be pried from me
So pull out your pliers and your screwdrivers
But I want you to doubt me, I don’t want you to buh-lieve
Cause this is something that I must use to succeed
And if you don’t like me then fuck you
Self-esteem must be fucking shooting through-the-roof cause trust me
My skin is too thick and bullet proof to touch me
I can see why the fuck I disgust you
I must be allergic to failure, cause everytime I come close to it
I just sneeze but I just go atchoo then A-chieve!

[Hook: Liz Rodrigues]
This is survival of the fittest
This is do or die
This is the winner takes it all
So take it all, a-all, a-all, a-all
