Eminem: Mosh Meaning
And to the Republic for which it stands
One nation under God
It feels so good to be back..
I scrutinize every word, memorize every line
I spit it once, refuel...
The reviews of others about how this is a protest song by Eminem about bringing the troops home and taking back the country from Bush are true, but he does not call out for violent rebellion. Instead, he says to do it using the power of voices, of community, and most of all by voting.

This is an anti-Bush anarchist rap song. Em tells his fans to fight against Bush and his war in Iraq saying that we should protest the war and bring our troops home. Em is speaking to the whole nation and telling us that we need to do something about this because "we're responsible, for this monster, this coward, That we have empowered". He just comes out and says it right in the song, "Fuck Bush". Em is crying out for revolution when he says "...we set aside our differences, And assemble our own army to disarm this Weapon of Mass Destruction That we call our President..." and I agree FUCK BUSH.

Em makes the song out to be like an election campaign, as the 2003 campaign was in process when he made this song. He starts out by introducing himself:
"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..."
He then proceeds to rage about everything that is wrong with our leadership. He isn't just fed up with Bush. He is fed up with the government not hearing the people, and they are speaking. Everyone knows that our leaders are corrupt, biased, and do things sccording to their own personal agendas, not the will of the people. Everyone complains, argues, and gets fired up, yet nobody does a thing. We act as if there is nothing that can be done. Em recognizes the energy and raw power the youth shows in the mosh pits of concerts. He is appealing to the youth to channel this energy into political activism. Mosh outside the oval office if that is what it takes. We have brave soldiers fighting and dying for the Iraqi people. Why are we afraid of fighting for the greater good of our own nation?

The government is actually evil they just telling us lies and make it look like they the good ones.Almost all the presidents we had was bad except a few.Eminem is telling us that we're just giving them more power and we need to stop this.illuminati does exist and you people who say it does'nt are blind.Eminem is fake he said he was gonna lead us,and he tryna get out.if he is then why he ain't leave yet?he still making songs and crap so obviously he's still with them,if he wanted to get out he would've been did like tupac,he only made i'm not afraid to look like he trying to get out,that's why he fake.what happened to the old eminem huh?almost all rappers and goverments are in illuminati.look it up on google for proof.look up the KKK,and other crap too.

At the start of the song we are given the idea of what may be a grade school, possibly situated in nyc (please dont get be wrong but it may be coincidental and I do not mean to offend anyone)then we hear a plane fly by and what sounds like they crash into a building, which sounds like 9/11 during the song he brings up bin laden which... You know what nvm I relise its quite obvious that it is about 9/11

Eminem's song is not an anarchist song. He is simply stating how Bush is feeding us as much as he can to give us incentive to support the war, even lies, but does not give us the whole truth. He is saying we need to get together and voice our opinions now that most people see how the war or Bush is not helping us. He really is a business man, not a leader or a man of smarts other than to a monetary advantage.If you look at the facts you see how he has allowed Halliburton, cheney's company, to waste billions of dollars so that Halliburton can be reimbursed and paid more for "helping" with the war. A rapper, that is usually criticized for his lyrics is giving us his opinion and idea. I think it's mostly because most people have the same opinion yet it remains mostly unvoiced. Here and there he says Fuck Bush. I like that. He is using his words to voice our opinion but once in a while someone needs to just say it, good ol fashion fuck u, and what that fuck about it. I ain't no politician, I'm a street raised man so fuck u, sue me. But he promptly goes back to a very intelligent standpoint and continues. I don't know what you will think about my interpretation but I just want those who criticized this song and more so Eminem that it instilled a feeling of interest in me about what's going on in this world, this world soon to be my generations world. I'm just an 18 year old kid from El Paso Texas. I'm not a nerd or even a good student but you see what this song has brought out in me. Do you think if some senator said the same things I would of listened? That is what makes this a legitimate song, not just a shit talking anarchist song.

Any song that is anti-Bush is good for me. He's a stupid hick with the IQ of a tampon, EVERYONE hates him, he f**ked up America, he f**ked up the world, and he is the most hated person ever. He once said 'I believe marriage is between a man and a woman' and 'Is our children learning?'. If that doesn't label him as a total idiot there is no justice in the world.

Ok, if you don't like eminem, why are you even at this page????? And he's not even the epitimy of terrible rap, he actually has some respectable stuff to even those who don't like rap.

Anon I consider you emo with your comments, quit bitchin.

Okay, first of all, I think that it's funny how you people think that you know what these songs are really all about, and if you don't like Eminem you must be pretty fucking dumb in the first place to not have heard about his other songs telling not to take the lyrics so seriously. It's about the music people, there is messages in his songs of course, but its his opinion on the world, and everyone is entitled to there opinions...geeze.
