"Mosh" as written by and Andre Romell/pope Young....
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America
And to the Republic for which it stands
One nation under God
Indivisible?
It feels so good to be back

I scrutinize every word, memorize every line
I spit it once, refuel re-energize and rewind
I give sight to the blind, my insight through the mind
I exercise my right to express when I feel it's time
It's just all in your mind, what you interpret it as
I say to fight, you take it as I'm a whip someone's ass
If you don't understand, don't even bother to ask
A father who has grown up with a fatherless past
Who has blown up now to rap phenomenon that has
Or at least shows no difficulty multi-task
And in juggling both perhaps mastered his craft
Slash entrepreneur who has held onto few more rap acts
Who's had a few obstacles thrown his way through the last half
Of his career typical manure moving past that
Mr. kisses ass crack, he's a class act
Rubber band man, yea he just snaps back

[Chorus]
Come along follow me as I lead through the darkness
As I provide just enough spark that we need to proceed
Carry on, give me hope, give me strength
Come with me and I won't steer you wrong
Put your faith and your trust as I guide us through the fog
To the light at the end of the tunnel
We gonna fight, we gonna charge, we gonna stomp, we gonna march
Through the swamp, we gonna mosh through the marsh
Take us right through the doors (c'mon)

All the people up top on the side and the middle
Come together lets all form and swamp just a little
Just let it gradually build from the front to the back
All you can see is a sea of people some white and some black
Don't matter what color, all that matters we gathered together
To celebrate for the same cause don't matter the weather
If it rains let it rain, yea the wetter the better
They ain't gonna stop us they can't, we stronger now more than ever
They tell us no we say yea, they tell us stop we say go
Rebel with a rebel yell, raise hell we gonna let em know
Stomp, push, shove, mush, Fuck Bush, until they bring our troops home (c'mon)

[Chorus]

Imagine it pouring, it's raining down on us
Mosh pits outside the oval office
Someone's tryna tell us something,
Maybe this is god just sayin' we're responsible
For this monster, this coward,
That we have empowered
This is bin Laden, look at his head noddin'
How could we allow something like this without pumping our fists
Now this is our final hour
Let me be the voice in your strength and your choice
Let me simplify the rhyme just to amplify the noise
Try to amplify the times it, and multiply by six

Teen million people, Are equal at this high pitch
Maybe we can reach Al-Queda through my speech
Let the president answer a higher anarchy
Strap him with an Ak-forty seven, let him go, fight his own war
Let him impress daddy that way
No more blood for oil, we got our own battles to fight on our own soil
No more psychological warfare, to trick us to thinking that we ain't loyal
If we don't serve our own country, we're patronizing a hero
Look in his eyes its all lies
The stars and stripes, they've been swiped, washed out and wiped
And replaced with his own face, Mosh now or die
If I get sniped tonight you know why,
'Cause I told you to fight.

[Chorus]

And as we proceed,
To Mosh through this desert storm,
In these closing statements, if they should argue
Let us beg to differ
As we set aside our differences
And assemble our own army
To disarm this Weapon of Mass Destruction
That we call our President, for the present
And Mosh for the future of our next generation
To speak and be heard
Mr. President, Mr. Senator?
Do you guy's hear us? hear us? (Hailie)

    General CommentHawrtbrayker: Bush contributed $87 billion dollars and several hundred thousand US troops to Iraq, a country with no association to the groups that attacked our country, and he's the one that is the only person who is willing to do something about terrorism? That is a ridiculous statement. Bush has done more to keep Bin Laden alive than anyone else. If he had spent that money and used those troops in Afghanistan and Pakistan, we'd have Bin Laden already. But we don't. And we won't, for a long time. President Bush drove us into a ditch. Do you really want to let him sit and spin the tires, or do you want to admit you were wrong and call a tow truck?

    General CommentI just saw the music video for this. I don't like the way the song sounds too much musically, but I couldn't agree more with the lyrics.

    And guys please don't get into yet another bush arguement, this site already has plenty of them.

    General CommentI don't know what the fuck the guy above me is trying to say, Eminem is obviously very anti-Bush.

    As am I, I think this is one of his best songs.

    General CommentIs eminem just trying to sell records by once again being controversial, or is he really making a song about his political views?

    General CommentThis song doesn't make sense at all....oh wait, we're talking about Emininem who has never made sense in his life. He talks about pumping his fist against Bin Laden and that maybe his speach will reach Al Queda, but yet he's against the only person who seems to want to do anything about Al Queda...aka President Bush!

    If Eminem really thinks his stupid little rhymes will influence Al Queda, his is just as naive as the rest of those left wing, hollywood types. Yeah, lets use our words to get to Bin Laden and Al Queda...lets just talk with them about it. Yeah, I'd like to see Eminem talk to Bin Laden....he'd be the next person on their home made videos getting his bleach-ass head cut off and then I won't have to listen to this crap any more.

    Anyone who is ANTI-TERRORISM must be PRO-BUSH...I guess I mean anyone who is ant-terrorism and has a functioning brain....Eminem obviously doesn't.

    General CommentObviously you guy's don't get it that Eminem dosn't give a f*ck about what others think. Him being controversial is what he does, thats how he gets HIS money. Just becase half of the stuff he says he dosn't actually do, dosn't mean he might not actually feel what he means behind all it.

    He is just angry, like alot of other people in this country. He's just lucky he gets paid to vent his anger.

    General CommentFunny thing, what he says doesn't matter. He rants, he raves and we both can do it really. I agree with tarnok, here. I just saw the video on the GNN website, it is a slick infusion of rhymes and animation but it only goes so far. This imagery of young people donning black hoodies and rampaging a state building to sign up to vote is completely and wholly unrealistic. Gore Vidal said it best, he voiced that Democrats and Republicans are really two wings of the same party. If the above scenarios were realistic, every black-hooded person would write Eminem in on the ballot and neither candidate would be elected. Even if you crowd up all the young people to vote in Eminem, you could never amass the popular voting power of their elders (parents and grandparents) because they outnumber my generation twofold. Bush and Kerry would still win the presidency. The ones who are truly in charge, the ones who are truly threatened, would make sure every bit zealotry that is taken as truth by the masses would be vanquished before its taken on as an axiom in the arena of common sense. It's common sense that anybody who is elevated to a position of popularity will surely turn out like their successors. Absolute power corrupts absolutely and with human nature being what it is (social for survival unless egged on into conflict), I guarantee you Eminem would make a fabulous addition to that long list of political failures much like Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter, Jesse Ventura, Harry Truman, Elizabeth I, etc. I foresee Schwarzenegger and Affleck becoming additions to that list.

    The point is this: songs like this bring out false hope and this is another song that falls on that false hope list. They are unrealistic and only for the moment. They don't offer a method for curing human nature. If you want a truthful song about politics, "Won't Get Fooled Again" by The Who is maybe the best example that comes to mind about the perpetual state of politics and human nature. That's true mood music if you want my opinion on the subject. Eminem's deceiving himself, there is no way around the power-hungry aspect of human nature. I am liberal in my heart but I'm both a realist and a liberal in my head, I'm torn like that.

    If this essay is removed from the boards, I sincerely apologize for torquing anybody off but I think it had to be said.
