Headlights
Eminem Lyrics


Mom
I know I let you down
And though you say the days are happy
Why is the power off, and I'm fucked up?
And mom, I know he's not around
But don't you place the blame on me
As you pour yourself another drink and

I guess we are who we are
Headlights shining in the dark night, I drive on
Maybe we took this too far

I went in headfirst
Never thinking about who what I said hurt, in what verse
My mom probably got it the worst
The brunt of it, but as stubborn as we are
Did I take it too far?
Cleaning out my closet and all them other songs
But regardless I don't hate you 'cause ma!
You're still beautiful to me, cause you're my mom
Though far be it for you to be calling, my house was Vietnam
Desert Storm and both of us put together
Can form an atomic bomb equivalent to chemical warfare
And forever we can drag this on and on
But, agree to disagree
That gift from me up under the Christmas tree don't mean shit to me
You're kicking me out? It's fifteen degrees and it's Christmas Eve (little prick just leave)
Ma, let me grab my fucking coat, anything to have each other's goats
Why we always at each others throats? Especially when dad, he fucked us both
We're in the same fucking boat, you'd think that it'd make us close (nope)
Further away that drove us, but together headlights shine, a car full of belongings
Still got a ways to go, back to grandma's house it's straight up the road
And I was the man of the house, the oldest, so my shoulders carried the weight of the load
Then Nate got taken away by the state at eight years old, and
That's when I realized you were sick and it wasn't fixable or changeable
And to this day we remained estranged and I hate it though, but

I guess we are who we are
Headlights shining in the dark night I drive on
Maybe we took this too far

'Cause to this day we remain estranged and I hate it though
'Cause you ain't even get to witness your grand baby's growth
But I'm sorry mama for 'Cleaning Out My Closet', at the time I was angry
Rightfully maybe so, never meant that far to take it though, 'cause
Now I know it's not your fault, and I'm not making jokes
That song I no longer play at shows and I cringe every time it's on the radio
And I think of Nathan being placed in a home
And all the medicine you fed us
And how I just wanted you to taste your own, but
Now the medications taken over and your mental states deteriorating slow
And I'm way too old to cry, that shit's painful though
But ma, I forgive you, so does Nathan yo
All you did, all you said, you did your best to raise us both
Foster care, that cross you bare, few may be as heavy as yours
But I love you Debbie Mathers, oh what a tangled web we have, 'cause
One thing I never asked was where the fuck my deadbeat dad was
Fuck it I guess he had trouble keeping up with every address
But I'd have flipped every mattress, every rock and desert cactus
Own a collection of maps and followed my kids to the edge of the atlas
Someone ever moved them from me? That you could bet your ass's
If I had to come down the chimney dressed as Santa, kidnap them
And although one has met their grandma
Once you pulled up in our drive one night as we were leaving to get some hamburgers
Me, her and Nate, we introduced you, hugged you
And as you left I had this overwhelming sadness come over me
As we pulled off to go our separate paths, and
I saw your headlights as I looked back
And I'm mad I didn't get the chance to thank you for being my Mom and my Dad
So Mom, please accept this as a tribute I wrote this on the jet
I guess I had to get this off my chest, I hope I get the chance to lay it before I'm dead
The stewardess said to fasten my seat belt, I guess we're crashing
So if I'm not dreaming, I hope you get this message that I'll always love you from afar
'Cause you're my mama

I guess we are who we are
Headlights shining in the dark night I drive on
Maybe we took this too far

I want a new life
One without a cause
So I'm coming home tonight
Well no matter what the cost
And if the plane goes down
Or if the crew can't wake me up
Just know that I was alright
And I was not afraid to die

Oh even if there's songs to sing
My children will carry me
Just know that I'm alright
I was not afraid to die
Because I put my faith in my new girl
So I never say goodbye cruel world
Just know that I'm alright
I am not afraid to die

I guess we are who we are
Headlights shining in the dark night I drive on
Maybe we took this too far, I want a new life

The Dangleberries

I Still haven't found the courage to tell my mother I love her.

My mother gave birth to me when she was 19, my father moved to the USA and left both of us.
She tried to love me, I could feel it, but she would blame everything on me as I grew up, her poverty, her depression, her weight gain.

From the age of 5, all I can remember is violent physical fights, crying angrily in my room breaking things I enjoyed because I just didn't care about anything else.
I tore doors off of my wardrobe and threatened to hit her with them. She threatened to stab herself in front of me. We pushed and hit each other. I heard her boyfriend scream at her one evening, I ran downstairs and seen her crying loudly on the floor, I hit him so hard I almost knocked him out. My heart hurt, even though we hated each other, I still loved her. Whenever we would go out of town on a kind of holiday, we'd get into fights and not talk to each other the whole trip. My school years were horrible, I wouldn't do my homework some nights because of the fighting, and it was a horrible cycle. I never wanted to tell anyone what was going on at home, I didn't want to be taken away or for her to be taken away. I just wanted us to fix our relationship. I would run away a lot, I know a lot of kids do. I ran away at 11:00PM on the 21st of December 2011 one year, I walked over an hour to our city and sat down near the city river, watching everyone wearing Christmas jumpers going from bar to bar, drunk. I was thinking about how awful Christmas was going to be this year, Home Alone has a special place in my heart, I always wanted the same thing, for my Mother and Father to magically be here and have a family. I know people who "hate" their family because they "baby" them and look after too much... that shit makes me laugh every time I hear it, but I get it.
I remember flirting with the idea of suicide but couldn't bring myself to do anything. I just returned home and my mother was waiting for me, waiting for a fight as usual.

She kicked me out at 16 because of an argument, when I called my grandparents and asked if I could stay there they said I couldn't and I remember just completely breaking down, I broke every glass/ porcelain item I could find and got my stuff in bags and left, she never wanted to resolve problems, she just wanted me to get out of her life. I felt like nobody wanted to help. I told her with resentment that I was going to finish school and go to college while she sat there and did nothing with her life, I called her lifestyle pathetic and that she was destroying her life. My best friend to this day and his mother took me into their home for 3 months. I sold everything I had in a store called CEX for about $1200 (PSP, DS, PS2, XBOX 360, PS3, and all of my games). I spent it on food and clothes. My friend's family didn't want my money.

I had 2 missed calls from my mother and 1 from my grandparents one night.

They all wanted me to come home, they had talked about what happened. My grandparents let me stay at theirs and my mother moved away.
I didn't want to, but I did. I don't know why I wanted this all to change. My whole life growing up in a broken home, all I wanted was to know what it meant to have a family.
Living with my grandparents was an atmosphere that allowed me to reflect on everything. My grandfather can be as bad as my mother, but my grandmother and I look after each other, I'm blessed to have her in my life, I'm always going to look after her.

I met a girl, who had similar problems. All we want now is to be the best parents we can be, no one deserves to grow up like this.
Broken homes can destroy people, we all need strong relationships growing up. Being an only child with 1 parent who hates you, doing average in school because you have no support at home does not make the future look bright. But the future is what you make it, you can't control how much suffering you endure, but you can control how you deal with it.
My name is Kristian after the Bass guitarist of Nirvana, I was supposed to be named Kurt (after Kurt Cobain). My mother was/is a revolutionary type. These people are dangerous for Family, they only care about power and money, or more specifically, their lack of power and money.

But I wouldn't be who I am today without my mother, I'd probably be one of those cry babies complaining about trivial things that don't matter.
I reached out to my Dad, we talk every now and then. No point holding grudges, time passes.

So Mom, thank you. And I'm sorry. <3
Maybe I can tell you in person one day.



Rylan Root

I can actually relate to Marshall quite a bit here

Growin up my Mom was an extreme drug addict and alcoholic. She had been that way since she was a teenager in the mid 90’s. I was born in April 2001. My Mom, Dad and baby me lived inna lower income dinky small apartment complex close to where a big mall is. My Mom & Dad fought quite a bit from what my grandparents told me & they divorced when I was 2, and when that happened there was a schedule of custody days where they took me certain days of the week and traded weekends.

Goin back and forth between my grandparent’s house (which is my childhood house) and my Dad’s was rough. I was scared of my Mom growin up because for years on end she physically, mentally, and emotionally abused me in order to keep me in line. Up until I was 9 or 10, even tho we lived in the decent neighborhood where my grandparents live, she took me to ghetto ass areas and left me with complete strangers while (if I were to guess) got her drug and/or alcohol fix and also possibly did sexual things with different guys, (tho I’m not entirely sure bout that one). This wasn’t completely terrible tho (despite bein scared of strangers), because I remember watchin old shows as a kid in these strange houses, like Robot Chicken & The Andy Milonakis Show. I actually got into video games in these houses cause the people there would play Evil Dead: Regeneration & Sly Cooper and The Thievius Racoonus. Eventually I got my own PS2 when I was 6 and played Thrillville: Off The Rails every day after school.

My Mom started goin to Alcoholics Anonymous, where she met my future step dad in 2011 and married in 2012 in Vegas. After that happened, I remember that because even on their combined incomes (my step dad bein a construction worker that had been laid off constantly and my mom bein a jobless housewife), we had to move to various ghetto neighborhoods in our town up until mid 2015. I remember that our houses got broken into & at various times hearin gunshots ring off from drive bys in the nearby park at one of em. At that same location I also saw gang members walk around with the strap durin the day as I jogged around the block or walked around with my two middle eastern friends who lived a couple houses down from me.

At the same time in my school years, I was made fun of by different kids because I was fat, possibly because I was white (considerin most of my bullies were either black or hispanic kids), and especially since I have autism (I got called retard a lot in middle and to a certain extent high school, and even some grades in elementary). They also took advantage of me by takin my money for food and sayin they’d pay it back later, which they never did even tho I believed them. Considerin I’m somewhere on the autism spectrum, that’s probably one of the reasons why I thought the wrong things and didn’t stick up for myself.

The main thing that truly got me through all this terrible shit was hip hop/rap music. I remember askin my Dad to fill up the iPod he gave me back in 2013. I would listen to all kinda of old school rap and gangsta rap. From NWA to Eazy E, Dre, and Ice Cube’s solo stuff, Black Sheep, DMX, and of course, Eminem. I predominantly listened to The Slim Shady LP & The Marshal Mathers LP (cause those are his best work imo). I also listened to the most popular tracks off MMLP2, which is where I heard this song as well at the time (tho now in 2020 goin into 2021, it has a greater impact on me).

Meanwhile my Mom & I weren’t really gettin better. She was still abusin me but over time from gettin older I had learned to toughen up against what she threw at me. Things started to cool down, tho she still said stuff to me that caused us to fight, up until I was 15, when she smacked my so hard my nose started bleedin and when I pushed her hard against my bedroom wall. Eventually my Dad picked me up and after a couple weeks of complicated paperwork, my Mom gave up custody on me. Tho not before sayin I killed her unborn child in her stomach when I pushed her (which was a complete lie).

I’ve been livin with my Dad for the past 4+ years since then (I’m 19 now). For the past 2 years I’ve been doin yard work for my Mom at her new house. Things get awkward between us when we talk, but I still love her despite all that’s happened. Soon when I turn 20 I’m possibly gunna move in with my friends to make music (idk bout that one yet).

I hope one day in this decade as I become an adult that the two of us can have a heart to heart and possibly clear the air.

Even tho we’re both probably wrecks mentally, I love u Mom. I wish things could be different but life isn’t fair I suppose.

Edit (January 2021): My Mom has moved with my sisters and step father to Utah. I said by to them and it was really hard for me to hold back my tears as my Mom was cryin and they said goodbye to me. I came back and watched this and now I’m bawlin my eyes out. I love you so much Mom, and I forgive u for all the shit that’s happened, I hope ur life gets better from this point forward.

Mom
I know I let you down
And though you say the days are happy
Why is the power off, and I'm fucked up?
And mom, I know he's not around
But don't you place the blame on me
As you pour yourself another drink and

I guess we are who we are
Headlights shining in the dark night, I drive on
Maybe we took this too far

I went in headfirst
Never thinking about who what I said hurt, in what verse

The brunt of it, but as stubborn as we are
Did I take it too far?
Cleaning out my closet and all them other songs
But regardless I don't hate you 'cause ma!
You're still beautiful to me, cause you're my mom
Though far be it for you to be calling, my house was Vietnam
Desert Storm and both of us put together
Can form an atomic bomb equivalent to chemical warfare
And forever we can drag this on and on
But, agree to disagree
That gift from me up under the Christmas tree don't mean shit to me

Mom, I know I let you down
And though you say the days are happy
Why is the power off and I'm fucked up?
And, mom, I know he's not around
But don't you place the blame on me
As you pour yourself another drink, yeah
I guess we are who we are
Headlights shining in the dark night, I drive on
Maybe we took this too far
I went in headfirst, never thinkin' about who, what I said hurt
In what verse, my mom probably got it the worst
The brunt of it, but as stubborn as we are, did I take it too far?
"Cleanin' Out My Closet" and all them other songs
But regardless, I don't hate you 'cause, Ma
You're still beautiful to me, 'cause you're my Ma
Though far be it from you to be calm
Our house was Vietnam, Desert Storm
And both of us put together could form an atomic bomb
Equivalent to chemical warfare
And forever we could drag this on and on
But agree to disagree, that gift for me
Up under the Christmas tree don't mean shit to me
You're kickin' me out? It's 15 degrees
And it's Christmas Eve, "Little prick, just leave"
Ma, let me grab my fucking coat
Anything to have each other's goats
Why we always at each other's throats?
Especially when Dad, he fucked us both
We're in the same fuckin' boat
You'd think that'd make us close (Nope)
Further away it drove us, but together, headlights shine
And a car full of belongings, still got a ways to go

'Cause to this day we remain estranged, and I hate it though
'Cause you ain't even get to witness your grandbabies grow
But I'm sorry, momma, for "Cleanin' Out My Closet"
At the time I was angry, rightfully? Maybe so
Never meant that far to take it though
'Cause now I know it's not your fault, and I'm not makin' jokes
That song I no longer play at shows
And I cringe every time it's on the radio
And I think of Nathan being placed in a home
And all the medicine you fed us and
How I just wanted you to taste your own
But now the medication's takin' over
And your mental state's deterioratin' slow
And I'm way too old to cry, the shit is painful though
But, Ma, I forgive you, so does Nathan, yo
All you did, all you said, you did your best to raise us both
Foster care, that cross you bear, few may be as heavy as yours

Oh, what a tangled web we have 'cause
One thing I never asked was
Where the fuck my deadbeat dad was
Fuck it, I guess he had trouble keepin' up with every address

If someone ever moved 'em from me
That you coulda bet your asses
If I had to come down the chimney, dressed as Santa, kidnap 'em
And although one has only met their grandma once
You pulled up in our drive one night
As we were leavin' to get some hamburgers
Me, her and Nate, we introduced you, hugged you
And as you left I had this overwhelming sadness
Come over me as we pulled off to go our separate paths and
I saw your headlights as I looked back
And I'm mad I didn't get the chance to
Thank you for being my mom and my dad
So, mom, please accept this as a
Tribute, I wrote this on the jet, I guess I had to
Get this off my chest, I hope I get the chance to
Lay it 'fore I'm dead, the stewardess said to fasten
My seatbelt, I guess we're crashin'
So, if I'm not dreamin', I hope you get this message that
I will always love you from afar, 'cause you're my mom
I guess we are who we are
Headlights shining in the dark night, I drive on
Maybe we took this too far
I want a new life (Start over)
One without a cause (Clean slate)
So I'm coming home tonight (Yeah)
Well, no matter what the cost
And if the plane goes down

But I love you Debbie Mathers, oh what a tangled web we have, 'cause
One thing I never asked was where the fuck my deadbeat dad was
Fuck it I guess he had trouble keeping up with every address
But I'd have flipped every mattress, every rock and desert cactus
Own a collection of maps and followed my kids to the edge of the atlas
Someone ever moved them from me? That you could bet your ass's
If I had to come down the chimney dressed as Santa, kidnap them
And although one has met their grandma
Once you pulled up in our drive one night as we were leaving to get some hamburgers
Me, her and Nate, we introduced you, hugged you
And as you left I had this overwhelming sadness come over me
As we pulled off to go our separate paths, and
I saw your headlights as I looked back
And I'm mad I didn't get the chance to thank you for being my Mom and my Dad
So Mom, please accept this as a tribute I wrote this on the jet
I guess I had to get this off my chest, I hope I get the chance to lay it before I'm dead
The stewardess said to fasten my seat belt, I guess we're crashing
So if I'm not dreaming, I hope you get this message that I'll always love you from afar
'Cause you're my mama
I guess we are who we are
Headlights shining in the dark night I drive on
Maybe we took this too far
I want a new life
One without a cause
So I'm coming home tonight
Well no matter what the cost
And if the plane goes down
Or if the crew can't wake me up
Just know that I was alright
And I was not afraid to die
Oh even if there's songs to sing
My children will carry me
Just know that I'm alright
I was not afraid to die
Because I put my faith in my new girl
So I never say goodbye cruel world
Just know that I'm alright
I am not afraid to die
I guess we are who we are
Headlights shining in the dark night I drive on
Maybe we took this too far, I want a new life
