"Drop the World" as written by Chauncey A. Hollis, Jesse Woodard Iv, Marshall B. Iii Mathers, Dwayne Carter, Luis Edgardo Resto and Mike Strange....
I got ice in my veins, blood in my eyes
Hate in my heart, love in my mind
I seen nights full of pain, days are the same
You keep the sunshine, save me the rain
I search but never find, hurt but never cry
I work and forever try, but I'm cursed, so never mind
And it's worse, but better times seem further and beyond
The top gets higher the more that I climb
The spot gets smaller, and I get bigger
Tryna get into where I fit in, no room for a nigga
But soon for a nigga it be on, mu'fucka'
Cause all the bullshit, it made me strong, mu'fucka'

Pick the world up and I'm a drop it on your fuckin' head, yeah
Bitch, I'm a pick the world up and I'm a drop it on your fuckin' head
And I could die now, rebirth motherfucker
Hop up in my spaceship and leave Earth, motherfucker
I'm gone
Motherfucker, I'm gone

Uh, I know what they don't wanna tell you
Just hope you're heaven-sent, and you're hell-proof
I-I walk up in the world and cut the lights off
And confidence is a stain they can't wipe off
Huh, my word is my pride
But wisdom is bleak, and that's a word from the wise
Served to survive, murdered and bribed
And when it got too heavy I put my burdens aside

So I could pick the world up
And drop it on yo fuckin' head, haha
Bitch, I'm a pick the world up
And I'm a drop it on your fuckin' head, yeah
And I could die now, rebirth motherfucker
Hop up in my spaceship and leave Earth, motherfucker
I'm gone
Motherfucker, I'm gone (I'm gone)

It hurts, but I never show,
This pain you'll never know
If only you could see just how lonely and how cold
And frostbit I've become, my back's against the wall
When push come to shove, I just stand up and scream "Fuck 'em all"

Man, it feels like these walls are closing in
This roof is caving in, up its time to raise it then
Your days are numbered like pages in
My book of rhymes, got 'em crooked, boy
This crooked mind of mine got 'em all
Shook and scared to look in my eyes
I stole that fuckin' clock, I took the time and I
Came up from behind
And pretty much snuck up
And butt-fucked this game up
Better be careful when you bring my name up
Fuck this fame, that ain't what
I came to claim but the game
Ain't gonna be the same on the day that I leave it
But I swear one way or another I'm a make these fuckin' haters believe it
I swear to God, won't spare the rod
I'm a man of my word, so your fuckin' heads better nod
Or I'm a fuck around in this bitch and roast everybody!
Sleep on me, that pillow is where your head'll lie
Permanently, bitch, it's beddy-bye
This world is my Easter egg, yeah! prepare to die
My head is swole, my confidence is up
This stage is my pedestal
I'm unstoppable, incredible
Hope you're trapped in my medicine ball
I could run circles around you so fast your fuckin' head'll spin, dawg
I'll split your cabbage and lettuce and olives
I'll fuckin'

Pick the world up and I'm a drop it on your fuckin' head
Bitch, I'm a pick the world up and I'm a drop it on your fuckin' head
And I could die now, Rebirth motherfucker
Hop up in my spaceship and leave Earth, motherfucker
I'm gone
Motherfucker, I'm gone (I'm gone)

    General CommentThis song to me is Wayne talking about what he's doing with his music. The hook is great, he's talking about how many people have written him off, and written the album rebirth off, so he says "i could die now, rebirth motherfucker"...cos he's at the point in his career where he has enough bank to do whatever the fuck he wants with his music, and "Hop up in my spaceship and leave Earth, motherfucker I'm gone"... is very, very Weezy. It means that this thing is about more than a fucking rock album, its about Wayne, and when you want something to be personal, you try hard to make it stand out. He's trying to take his music to whatever new heights he can whether we come along for the ride or not...which is the mark of a true artist.

    But we will all come along anyway. The title line is very fitting. It's more than just Weezy. A lot of rappers have gotten tired of talking about the cars and girls. It's about time. So what he's saying is "Write us off now, Bitch"

    The top gets higher the more that I climb

    General CommentI got ice in my veins, blood in my eyes

    I work and forever try, but I'm cursed, so never mind
    And it's worse, but better times seem further and beyond
    The top gets higher the more that I climb
    The spot gets smaller, and I get bigger

    >His struggle has made him feel that he's cursed because he has worked so hard and he can't get to where he strives to be.as an artist.
    The harder he tries the harder it gets for him but he has confidence in his talent that soon for a nigga it be on and he'll find where he fits in, Also he realizes that he is stronger now from all the bullshit that he endured on his climb.


    Pick the world up and I'm a drop it on your fuckin' head, yeah
    Bitch, I'm a pick the world up and I'm a drop it on your fuckin' head
    And I could die now, rebirth motherfucker
    Hop up in my spaceship and leave Earth, motherfucker
    I'm gone
    Motherfucker, I'm gone

    >He's gonna make a big impact that will take the world by surprise.
    Bigger than anything he's ever done. He's anger and determined.
    Hop up in my spaceship leave earth ,I'm gone..means he's gonna be
    on top or over the world and the critics that doubted him.

    It hurts, but I never show,
    This pain you'll never know
    If only you could see just how lonely and how cold
    And frostbit I've become, my back's against the wall
    When push come to shove, I just stand up and scream "Fuck 'em all"

    He conceals his hurt and pain because nobody would understand him or may
    think he's weak .He knows it's up to him and not what others think.

    so he says "fuck'em all" and does what he wants.

    General Commentnah, wayne delivers a mediocre hook. his lyrics are clever but he sounds a little 50 and not the playful weirdo weezy that's made him such an anomaly in the game

    em kills it though, can't wait for relapse 2; he's priming us with this and his verse in forever, absolutely dirty
