Fuckin' posers
Fuckin' posers
It's almost over now
It's almost over now
Yeah, fuckin' posers
Yeah
It's almost over now
It's almost over now

You think the way you live is OK
You think posing will save your day
You think we don't see that you're running
Better call your boys cause I'm coming

You can't be me, I'm a rock star
I'm rhyming on the top of a cop car
I'm a rebel and my .44 pops far
It's almost over now it's almost over now
Guess, you ain't heard that we swallow guys
It's too damn late, to apologize
When you see the mantle or when you see the skies
It's almost over now it's almost over now

You think that you don't have to ever quit
You think that you can get away with it
You think the light won't be ever lit
It's almost over now, almost over now
Somethings on your chest better get it off
There'll be no one left when we set it off
We ain't gonna take it no more
Since it's almost over now, almost over now

You have to plenty of time, there was no rush
But it was your dream to be like us
You're in dreamland so you don't care
And as you wake I'm standing there

You can't be me, I'm a rock star
I'm rhyming on the top of a cop car
I'm a rebel and my .44 pops far
It's almost over now it's almost over now
Guess, you ain't heard that we swallow guys
It's too damn late, to apologize
When you see the mantle or when you see the skies
It's almost over now it's almost over now

You think that you don't have to ever quit
You think that you can get away with it
You think the light won't be ever lit
It's almost over now, almost over now
Somethings on your chest better get it off
There'll be no one left when we set it off
We ain't gonna take it no more
Since it's almost over now, almost over now

It's almost over now, almost over now
You don't succeed cause you hesitate
You think we're fly, but we levitate
Just be yourself, don't ask us why
'Cause if you don't, we'll make you cry

You can't be me, I'm a rock star
I'm rhyming on the top of a cop car
I'm a rebel and my .44 pops far
It's almost over now it's almost over now
I guess, you ain't heard that we swallow guys
It's too damn late, to apologize
When you see the mantle or when you see the skies
It's almost over now it's almost over now

You think that you don't have to ever quit
You think that you can get away with it
You think the light won't be ever lit
It's almost over now, almost over now
Somethings on your chest better get it off
There'll be no one left when we set it off
We ain't gonna take it no more
Since it's almost over now, almost over now

You can't be me, I'm a rock star
I'm rhyming on the top of a cop car
I'm a rebel and my .44 pops far
It's almost over now it's almost over now
I guess, you ain't heard that we swallow guys
It's too damn late, to apologize
When you see the mantle or when you see the skies
It's almost over now it's almost over now
It's almost over now it's almost over now

    General Commentthis song isn't about a battle against the different genres of music. it's just about how posers suck. be real. be who you are.

    General CommentThis song is saying that all those people who think musicians or wutever can do anything they want and think their life is easy- it really isn't. They're sayin you really can't get away with EVERYTHING like ppl think they can.

    jumpda4up, he's allowed to express his opinion. You don't like it -- That's fine, it's your opinion. But don't bash other people.

    General CommentI think the song is dis against rock star posers. Specifically nu-metal. I take the 'its all most over now' to be about rock dying. It clearly mocks the cliches of rock posing. In the video they mock nu-metal rock bands with bad DJs by showing a band with a DJ so whack he plays off cassette decks. It could be about rock in general, like 'you don't have to ever quit'. The 'But it was your dream to be like us' is about the suburban dudes wanting to be black and they go hiring guest mcs like snoop dogg. Word.
