"Revelation" as written by Nicholas Dominic Gelyon, Matthew Alan Johnson, Dennis Mathew Miller and Sean Robbins....
I don't want to go to school, I don't need no education
I don't want to be like you, I don't want to save the nation
I just want to live my life, everyday a celebration
One day I'ma leave this world, I'm waiting for the revelation

I want to kill myself! I'm still debating
In front of a baptist church, masturbating
Praying to Satan, think I'm crazy cause I smoke crack
live on in a two-family flat? (Fuck it)
Tired of gettin hit in the face with a broom
My moms on her period, my dad's in my room (Daddy no!)
I got ten rocks and I need to get out
I told him in five minutes, out my own damn mouth (Moms smoke crack)
My poor grandmother, God bless her soul
The bitch got AIDS (aww) she just waiting to die of a cold
There's three things that keep me from being a Nazi
I'm black, a fag, and my dad's Liberace

[Kon Artis]
No matter how bad the beating, I went to school cheating
My dad whooped my ass at a PTA meeting
Stick with school I had to have nuts just to do it
Got bored and became truant
When I had the gall to go I just couldn't do it
I was lured into corners by the peer pressure shit
How would you feel if you was held by the tip of a barrel
Getting threatened to get your skin ripped to bone marrow
Bet suburban kids never got rushed for their apparel
like me, outcast, last in class
First to leave, when the teacher called on me
Best believe I had somethin up my sleeve

I've been praised and labeled as crazed
My mother was unable to raise me, full of crazy rage
An angry teenager, nothing can change me back
Gangsta rap made me act like a maniac
I was boosting, so influenced by music I used it
as an excuse to do shit, ooh I was stupid
No one can tell me nothing hip-hop overwhelmed me
to the point where it had me in a whole another realm
It was like isolating myself was healthy
It felt like we was on welfare but wealthy
Compelled me to excel when school it failed me
Expelled me and when the principal would tell me
I was nothing, and I wouldn't amount to shit
I made my first million and counted it
Now look at, a fucking drop-out that quits
Stupid as shit, rich as fuck, and proud of it
That's why


[Swifty McVay]
I was raised with a rifle and mask
Steadily beating my psychiatrist ass just for asking about my past
(bitch) I was never on that punk shit, fucking around
can get yo' beloved abducted, smothered in blood quick
You couldn't pay Swift to give a fuck
Was crazy like my father, it must of been poison in that nigga's nut
Far as probation, fuck peeing in cups
I violate at any time, let 'em see the blunt
I grew up steadily masturbating inside of cells
Young as hell, having conversations with myself
You could tell I wasn't lenient, a disobedient
Lynched and slapped teachers, bitch I'm not reading it
You don't know what dos go through, a little nigga
Sipping liquor with my old dude, what the fuck you goin' do?
I'm quick to curse you, I told my mother that I'ma hurt you
if you ever again mention a curfew

Look, my family ignored me and I don't like that
They don't even listen when I tell them I'll be right back
(Yeah whatever) This nice beautiful house ma, it don't mean shit
Cause you know daddy's a drunk and he don't clean shit
And yesterday he hit me like a grown fucking man
I couldn't stand up to him, I just ducked and ran
I'm sick of this, I wish on Christmas
that I can get a loaded four-fifth and put a fucking end to this
(Fuck it) I got no friends and I can't get a bitch
Only thing I have is dirty magazines and sticky fingertips
Nothing to smile about, I'm about to lose my mind
Got me an automatic nine, now I'm balling out

Wait 'til school's over, pu-pil are people to shoot through
Kids going cuckoo, with a two-two
Since my fame is this new dude, in this high school
Losing his noodle learn that people don't like you
The football jocks is, spitting on him
Popular kids in school is now picking on him
Burn out youngsta niggas now hitting on him
And his teacher in his English class keep flipping on him
And now he's grounded with no allowances
for drinking forty ounces, cause he was caught by his counselors
And why the fuck I gotta ride the bench coach?
Already got expelled for wearing a trench coat
All I ever seen is (violence, violence)
Told me to keep silent, stepped back in my eyelids
It's apparent that my parents weren't parents at all
That's why I blew out my brains and murdered you all

    General CommentThis is one of the greatest songs i've ever heard in my life. Its got so much meaning and its a very powerful song. This is the song that got me into D12. The end of Kon Artis' verse is powerful because of the emotion he puts into it. Eminem's verse is powerful just because of thw words he uses. "A fucking drop out that quit
    Stupid as shit
    Rich as fuck
    And proud of it"
    Thats a great example.
    I like D12 because their songs are so real and so many teens can relate to them. I think Proof's verse, especially the last couple of lines are the most powerful lines in the song because he shows so much emotion to portray the already powerful words.
    I just wanna know what u guys think about this song.

    General CommentI think this song does have alot of meaning but you shouldnt go listen to the song and drop out of school because you think that you can make 1 million dollas. Stick w/ school its your best bet! I think its Hilarious when Eminem says Stupid as shit
    Rich as fuck
    And proud of it" Cause you hear how everybody says how eminem aint nothing and how they hate.

    General CommentI love this song...it's definately got alot of meaning to it. Mark's right though, you shouldn't just drop out of school after hearing the song expecting to make a shit load of money like em did. Not alot of people have the talent that man's got. My favorite part of this song is when em says, "Compelled me to excel when school had failed me,
    Expelled me, And when the principal would tell me I was nothing, And I wouldn't amount to shit, I made my first million and counted it, Now look it, A fucking drop out that quit, Stupid as shit, Rich as fuck,
    And proud of it.."

    General CommentWhen I first heard the chorus of this song in my friends car it made me think if "Pink Floyd - Another Brick In The Wall", then once I listened to the whole song I heard the ending of it when Eminem does the same thing Pink Floyd did in that song, hah. This is a song that goes against the whole "Rap doesn't have meaning", this song has alot of meaning. Insanely good song, and I'm an Eminem fan to death, so I love his chorus.
