Kings Never Die Lyrics By Eminem Featuring Gwen Stefani

    produced by the new royales

    gwen stefani
    here to stay
    even when i’m gone
    when i close my eyes
    through the passage of time
    kings never die

    i can hear the drummer drummin’
    and the trumpets someone’s tryna summon someone
    i know something’s comin’
    but i’m runnin’ from it to be standing at the summit
    and plummet how come it wasn’t what i thought it was
    was it too good to be true
    have nothin’ get it all but too much of it
    then lose it again did i swallow hallucinogens
    cause if not where the hell did it go
    cause here i sit in lucifers den by the dutch oven
    just choosing to sin even if it means i’m sellin’ my soul
    just to be the undisputed again
    do whatever i gotta do just to win
    cause i got this motherfuckin’ cloud over my head
    crown around it thorns on it
    cracks in it bet you morons didn’t think i’d be back did ya
    how ’bout that im somehow now back to the underdog
    but no matter how loud that i bark
    this sport is somethin’ i never bowout at
    i complain about the game i shout and i pout it’s a lovehate
    but i found out that i can move a mountain of doubt
    even when you bitches are countin’ me out
    and i appear to be down for the count
    only time i ever been out and about
    is drivin’ around town with my fuckin’ whereabouts in a doubt
    cause i been lost tryna think of what i did to get here
    but i’m not a quitter gotta get up give it all i got or give up
    spit on shit on stepped on but kept goin’
    i’m tryna be headstrong
    but it feels like i slept on my neck wrong
    cause you’re moving onto the next but is your respect gone
    cause someone told me that…

    gwen stefani
    kings never die

    don’t give me that sob story liar don’t preach to the choir
    you ain’t never even had to reach in the fire to dig deep
    nobody ever handed me shit in life not even a flyer
    wouldn’t even take shit into consideration
    obliterate anyone in the way
    i think i see why a lot of rappers get on these features
    and try to show out on a track with me
    but it’d actually have to be
    a fuckin’ blowout to get me to retire
    tell these new artists that kings never die
    i know shit has changed in this age fuck a twitter page
    did it just say i’ve been upstaged
    why am i online it’s driving me crazy
    i’m ridin’ shotgun tryna get a gauge
    on what’s hot but i’m not one to conform
    but as days pass in this shit
    and opinions sway i can hear ’em say
    if i stay passionate maybe i can stage a miraculous
    comeback as if i went away
    but detractors just say so much for the renegade
    someone’s gonna make me blow my composure
    here i go again center stage and i feel like i’m in a cage
    they so want a champion to fall
    it’s no wonder why i laugh at ’em
    cause why can’t we win ’em all
    so fuck what these cynics say
    it just goes to show that when my back’s against the wall
    and i’m under attack again that i’ll act as if i’m ‘posed ta
    with this pentup rage cause all these plaques in my office
    on the floor stacked against the door
    are they just metaphors for the odds of me comin’ back again
    cause all the accomplishments accolades awards
    and trophies just don’t mean jack anymore
    if i’m here today and gone tomorrow and i’m not gonna be…

    gwen stefani
    here to stay
    even when i’m gone
    when i close my eyes
    through the passage of time
    kings never die

    i want it i’m comin’ to get it
    so you son of a bitches don’t duck
    youre gonna get riddick bowed
    critics’ll end up in critical
    think your shit is dope all you’re gonna get is smoked
    and i ain’t stopping ’til i’m on top again
    all alone and on a throne like a token of respect
    or a homage poem or an ode i’ve been owed
    tossed in the air by my own arm
    and launched so hard it broke my collarbone
    and when it’s my time to go
    i’m still not leaving stop for no one i don’t know
    but i’ve been told an obstacle that blocks your road ya
    knock it over time to go for the pot of gold cause…

    they say kings never die
    just ask jam master jay
    they just grow wings and they fly
    so hands up reach for the sky
    try to hold on and prolong these moments
    cause in a blink of an eye
    they’ll be over

    4 eminem
    so you’re tryna secure your legacy like shakur
    and ensure nobody’s ever gonna be what you were
    so before you’re leavin’ this earth
    you want people to feel the fury of a pure evil cerebral berserk
    deacon of words syllable genius at work
    plus i’m thinkin’ that they’re mistakin’ my kindness for weakness kill ’em with meanness
    i went from powdered milk and farina
    to flippin’ burgers on the grill for some peanuts
    at gilbert’s to arenas call me gilbert arenas
    still appeal to the dreamers
    i made it to the silverscreen
    but rocky’s still what the theme is
    khalil on the beat cause makin’ the beat
    aint the same feelin’ to me as killin’ the beat is
    or fulfillin’ to me is what fillin’ a seat is
    it’s that soundbombing thirstin howl
    common underground diamond d outsidaz
    stomach growl throbbin’ hunger outrhymin’ everyone
    god just give me one shot i swear that i won’t let you down
    i’ma be around foreverandaday even in the ground
    you ain’t never ever gonna hear ’em say i ain’t…

    gwen stefani
    here to stay
    even when i’m gone
    when i close my eyes
    through the passage of time
    kings never die
