"Mosh" by Eminem
    #3304570 - 11/01/04 02:15 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I just flipped on the television to catch a new video on Fuse. It's Eminem rapping with political motivation. I've seen quite a few anti-Bush music videos, but they've all seemed to stem from the mainstream rock genre. This is the first anti-Bush rap video I've seen, so I was (pleasantly) surprised. The video reminds me of the cartoon-like work shown in Chronic Future's "Time and Time Again."

Anyway, here are the lyrics.

[I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America
And to the Republic for which it stands
One nation under God
Indivisible・
It feels so good to be back..]

Scrutinize every word, memorize every line
I spit it once, refuel, reenergize, and rewind
I give sight to the blind, mind sight through the mind
I ostracize my right to express when I feel it's time
It's just all in your mind, what you interpret it as
I say to fight you take it as I知 gonna whip someone's ass
If you don't understand don't even bother to ask
A father who has grown up with a fatherless past
Who has blown up now to rap phenomenon that has
Or at least shows no difficulty multi task
And juggling both, perhaps mastered his craft slash
Entrepreneur who has held long too few more rap acts
Who has had a few obstacles thrown his way through the last half
Of his career typical manure moving past that
Mister kiss his ass crack, he's a class act
Rubber band man, yea he just snaps back

Come along, follow me as I lead through the darkness
As I provide just enough spark, that we need to proceed
Carry on, give me hope, give me strength,
Come with me, and I won't stear you wrong
Put your faith and your trust as I guide us through the fog
Till the light, at the end, of the tunnel, we gonna fight,
We gonna charge, we gonna stomp, we gonna march through the swamp
We gonna mosh through the marsh, take us right through the doors

To the people up top, on the side and the middle,
Come together, let's all bomb and swamp just a little
Just let it gradually build, from the front to the back
All you can see is a sea of people, some white and some black
Don't matter what color, all that matters is we gathered together
To celebrate for the same cause, no matter the weather
If it rains let it rain, yea the wetter the better
They ain't gonna stop us, they can't, we're stronger now more then ever,
They tell us no we say yea, they tell us stop we say go,
Rebel with a rebel yell, raise hell we gonna let em know
Stomp, push up, mush, fuck Bush, until they bring our troops home come on just . . .

Come along, follow me as I lead through the darkness
As I provide just enough spark, that we need to proceed
Carry on, give me hope, give me strength,
Come with me, and I won't stear you wrong
Put your faith and your trust as I guide us through the fog
Till the light, at the end, of the tunnel, we gonna fight,
We gonna charge, we gonna stomp, we gonna march through the swamp
We gonna mosh through the marsh, take us right through the doors, come on

Imagine it pouring, it's raining down on us,
Mosh pits outside the oval office
Someone's trying to tell us something, maybe this is God just saying
we're responsible for this monster, this coward, that we have empowered
This is Bin Laden, look at his head nodding,
How could we allow something like this, Without pumping our fist
Now this is our, final hour
Let me be the voice, and your strength, and your choice
Let me simplify the rhyme, just to amplify the noise
Try to amplify the times it, and multiply it by six
Teen million people are equal of this high pitch
Maybe we can reach Al Quaida through my speech
Let the President answer on high anarchy
Strap him with AK-47, let him go
Fight his own war, let him impress daddy that way
No more blood for oil, we got our own battles to fight on our soil
No more psychological warfare to trick us to think that we ain't loyal
If we don't serve our own country we're patronizing a hero
Look in his eyes, it's all lies, the stars and stripes
They've been swiped, washed out and wiped,
And Replaced with his own face, mosh now or die
If I get sniped tonight you'll know why, because I told you to fight

So come along, follow me as I lead through the darkness
As I provide just enough spark, that we need to proceed
Carry on, give me hope, give me strength,
Come with me, and I won't stear you wrong
Put your faith and your trust as I guide us through the fog
Till the light, at the end, of the tunnel, we gonna fight,
We gonna charge, we gonna stomp, we gonna march through the swamp
We gonna mosh through the marsh, take us right through the doors

[Eminem speaking angrily]
And as we proceed, to mosh through this desert storm, in these closing statements, if they should argue, let us beg to differ, as we set aside our differences, and assemble our own army, to disarm this weapon of mass destruction that we call our president, for the present, and mosh for the future of our next generation, to speak and be heard, Mr. President, Mr. Senator.

I loved the song and the message. My only problem is that Eminem didn't release the video until after it was TOO LATE TO REGISTER TO VOTE.  :rolleyes:

Hey what an original idea. Make a song about how you hate Bush! Good thing Eminem did it first...
The great thing about celebrities is that they don't actually have to be in any way educated or informed to preach political statements.

Download that video and a TON of other great ones from www.gnn.tv

They're the ones who made the video. I actually recently had a chat with Stephen Marshall of GNN, and he's a seriously brilliant dude. I saw an advance screening of Battleground and i think its a movie EVERY american should see- its objective and really tells the story on the ground in iraq, brilliantly shot and very moving. You can get a sense from the trailer on the site.

Yeah... I noticed the Voting place looked a lot like the White House.

The point of the video:

Voting is as good as walking into the Oval Office and removing Bush yourself.

which is why the video is so good. there are so many REALLY strong messages but its done in a way that can be easily covered by "it was about voting" story. i love it when peopel do that, its like a big slap in teh politicians face.

divided. i think we all get worked up when we get in a serious debate about politics (in real life) and its not usually the most calming thing. but when you have a beat that you liek with a message you liek more...know what i mean?

who cares if it didnt come out before people registered...if they are dumb enough not to thats their problem. registering doesnt mean your stuck to one party/prez... i know what ya mean, but if a rapper is what it takes to get people to want to vote we are in more trouble than we think.

I disagree.  More and more citizens are embracing their duty.  If a rap artist is offering inspiration to vote, it's completely fucking beautiful :thumbup:

I find it funny how the people that complain about celebrities speaking out on politics without credentials are usually just as qualified.

When people like Britney Spears say something about politics you can be pretty sure it's a total joke. But if you listen to Mosh's lyrics and watch the video you'l see theres some thought put into it.

Well, yeah, but she tends to avoid being political for obvious reasons.

So you think that the elections would be better served if people who's sole motivation was an Eminem song?
