Yo left, yo left
Yo left, right, left
Yo left,…

Sometimes you just feel tired, feel week.
When you feel weak, you feel like you wanna just give up.
But you gotta search within you.
Gotta find that inner strength
And just pull that...

    It's about being you and not caring about what other people say to put you down. Basically that you will encounter it but can't let all the hating get to.
    So long as you're true to yourself and fight for what you want and what you believe, no one can get to you.

    this song is about not giving up that no matter how much you want to give up and just lay down and lose everything your working for you can you just gotta keep giving your all and never quit and if you dont find that inner voice in you and people are telling you crap to bring you down you just gotta keeping going cuz if you dont you already quit on yourself and gave up your battle.

    It is saying that no matter how much you wanna lay down and let go of your life, you have to keep fighting and keep working for it. Your struggle won't end, but you still need to work to make it worth it. You will only get one oppurtunity to be everything you want to be in life and that is something that when it comes should be held on to. Don't take any moment for granted and make your life your own. And if you keep fighting the fight they call life, people are going to hate you, but that is just like an award. The more the people try to hurt and the more they hate you because you don't give in to the crap, the more of a respectable person you are.

    Marshal Mathers is one of the best rappers to ever walk the Earth. He has been slandered and shot down and he has had his dreams rippede away from him. He has had to work for everything he has now, and for that he has earned respect. People, mostly jealous rappers who know they will never amount to half of what Eminem is, try to be better than him and always fail miserably. They try say things to make him crack and to make him give up and share the spotlight, but Eminem is too much of man to let it get to him. He just comes back with verses of gold that basicaly slap the others in the face with brutal honesty. He is the embodiment of truth and everyone thinks the things he says. He just has enough guts to say it out loud and in public.

    This is about never giving up or backing down no matter the concequences or difficulty. This song was dedicated to the United States Marines. Thats why you hear the cadence at the very beginning of the song.

    Never back down from your fight (with people, dreams, life).

    The intro is all about his child-hood, where many would have gave up he had the inner strength and the motivation to not be a quiter, to not give up, to not fall on his face, to persue what he wanted to, to live his life.
