25 to Life
Eminem Lyrics

Too late for the other side
Caught in a chase
Twenty five to life
Too late for the other side
Caught in a chase
Twenty five to life
Too late
I cant keep chasing 'em
I'm taking my life back
Caught in a change
Twenty five to life

I don't think she understands the sacrifices that I've made
Maybe if this bitch had acted right I would've stayed
But I've already wasted over half of my life I would've laid
Down and died for you I no longer cried for you
No more pain bitch you
Took me for granted took my heart and ran it straight into the planet
Into the dirt I can no longer stand it
Now my respect I demand it
I'm a take control of this relationship
Command it, and I'm a be the boss of you now goddammit
And what I mean is that I will no longer let you control me
So you better hear me out this much you owe me
I gave up my life for you, totally devoted to you while I've stayed
Faithful all the way this is how I fucking get repaid
Look at how I dress fucking baggy sweats, go to work a mess
Always in a rush to get back to you I ain't heard you yet
Not even once say you appreciate me I deserve respect
I've done my best to give you nothing less than perfectness
And I know that if I end this I'll no longer have nothing left
But you keep treating me like a staircase its time to fucking step
And I wont be coming back so don't hold your fucking breath
You know what you've done no need to go in depth
I told you, you'd be sorry if I fucking left
I'd laugh while you wept
Hows it feel now, yeah, funny ain't it, you neglected me
Did me a favor although my spirit free you've said
But a special place for you in my heart I have kept
Its unfortunate but its

Too late for the other side
Caught in a chase
Twenty five to life
Too late for the other side
Caught in a chase
Twenty five to life

I feel like when I bend over backwards for you all you do is laugh
Cause that ain't good enough you expect me to fold myself in half
Til I snap
Don't think I'm loyal
All I do is rap
I can not moonlight on the side
I have no life outside of that
Don't I give you enough of my time
You don't think so do you
Jealous when I spend time with the girls
Why I'm married to you still man I don't know
But tonight I'm serving you with papers
I'm divorcing you
Go marry someone else and make 'em famous
And take away there freedom like you did to me
Treat 'em like you don't need them and they ain't worthy of you
Feed 'em the same shit you made me eat
I'm moving on forget you oh,
Now I'm special? Oh, I didn't feel special when I was with you
All I ever felt was this
Imprisoned by a selfish bitch
Chew me up and spit me out
I fell for this so many times
Its ridiculous
And still I stick with this
I'm sick of this but in my sickness and addiction
Your as addictive as they get
Evil as they come vindictive as they make 'em
My friends keep asking why I cant just walk away
I'm addicted
To the pain, the stress, the drama
I'm drown in so I guess I'm a mess
Cursed and blessed
But this time I'm a
Ain't changing my mind
I'm climbing out this abyss
You screaming as I walk out that I'll be missed
But when you spoke to people who meant the most to you
You left me off your list

Fuck you hip-hop
I'm leaving you, my life sentence is served bitch
And its just

Too late for the other side
Caught in a chase
Twenty five to life
Too late for the other side
Caught in a chase
Twenty five to life

Too late
Caught in a change
Twenty five to life

"The Real Book Of Rap"
Tupac started the book.
Eminem finished it.
Dr. Dre published it.
Lil Wayne couldn't read it.
Kanye West lied and said he wrote it.
Snoop Dogg smoked a few pages.
Rick Ross ate some.
Drake cried on it.
Tyga raped it.
Iggy Azalea lost the book


This song is art
This song is different to every person
It just depends on u
It can be seen as a aftermath of a broken one sides relationship
Or how hip hop has taken over his life and how he's at his finally tipping point
Ex. Jealous when I spend time with the girls
Referring to him not spending time in the lab writing and rapping
Also move on and make someone else famous
It's referring to how hip hop discovers new stars every day and not to many people seem to stick around

K. McIntyre

He was 25 years old when the illuminati agreed to allow him into the music industry and made him famous.

Little known fact, Dr Dre was initially turned down TWICE by the music industry when trying to get Eminem a music deal. Even after their meeting when Dre took Eminem to his home and his private studio, the music industry still said, NO! - So Eminem went back home to his normal life in Michigan.

A few weeks later, Eminem got a phone call, Dre had an opportunity for him and a deal that would get him a real record deal with guaranteed stardom with millions in paid publicity. The only catch was that he had to agree to work for the illuminati from day one.

He obviously accepted their terms.... making his life a figurative prison sentence... Hence, 25 to life.

It was during the time this song was written that he decided to take his chances and go out on his own. He had threatened them many times before, each time he threatened them, they tried to destroy him.

They tried to destroy him by leaking his overdose experience which was initially rumored to be pneumonia. They tried to ruin him by leaking information about his ex wife, his mother, him being molested (truth), and even threatened to ruin his daughters life. (Listen to his songs about protecting her and having to be away).

In the end, he wrote this song and stated right within the lyrics that he was willing to accept the possibility of them destroying his career. (Lyrics: I know that if I leave you I'll no longer have nothing left). But he stuck to it, finally went out on his own, and unlike many other stars before him, he survived!

Prince died trying to leave the illuminati, as did Michael Jackson, John Lennon, Tupac, Bob Marley, and many others.

Sometimes the illuminati will just destroy a musicians career, sometimes they eliminate the threat entirely.

He was talking about leaving the illuminati, just disguised it as hip hop
