Letter to my Fans

Machine Gun Kelly

Kells, to my fans Hold me down mofu***And that's all I say When that crowd leave would you stay for me?And if I don't become what they thought I was In the time I should and my hype dies, would you wait for me?Or be ashamed of me if I chose to bow out gracefully Cause I know if I don't wanna lose myself Then Hollywood ain't no place for me What if I told you I ain't quit And these drugs still is my rivals Would you regret the fact that you sobered up And had more heart than your idol Or accept the fact that I'm just human, borderline suicidal

And is it blasphemous that these 2 fingers mean more to me than my bible? Lord help cause I'm cause I'm hell bound With the weight of the world I'm held down Feels like I'm in hell now, maybe that's why I'm having' this meltdown Maybe that's why I hate fame, maybe that's why these J's lit Cause I speak the real and get criticized So I inhale and don't say shit And I wake up, to the same shit Cameras on with their hands out And that fake smile that I hate now Cause they're the one say I sold out They're the one that will break out when I needed food for my daughter And I'm the one who can't grow up so these fans will 'place my father And these girls will 'place my momma, they give me love, I don't take it Cause f**k love, these f**king hugs weren't around before I made it And since I don't have no family EST is all that I got Either drop me now or you die for life Man it's EST or it's not This sh*t ain't right (uh) Cause we never dead wrong or it's my fault (my fault) This is my life (my life) Now tell me are you gon' ride 'till the wheels fall off? Till the nightmares done 'Till the grey hairs come 'Till the friendship disappear that we've had since day one I said this is my life So tell me are you gon' ride 'till the wheels fall off? What if this is our climax? What if everything peaks here? What if we never get big and these days add on like leap year? What if you were in my shoes? Do you think you can fit 'em?Or would put that gun to your f***ing head And regret the fact that you in 'em Cause this ain't living, this sh*t prison Whatever you see in videos, this isn't Whatever I thought I knew, sh*t I didn't Dealing with the consequences of my decision Straight to the life of a lonely child That couldn't find anyone to get through For a life that's filled with cameras Criticize every time that I move For the love I got for my fans And the loyalty for my man's Equaled out to the shows we dreamed of With them bodies pack to those stands And I did what they say I can't So I'm living proof that you can Go be great, chase your dream We only got one life and one chance

These are imagery and hyperbole.

The song is about his pain

Other Side

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Ft. Fences

Oh girl, this boat is sinking There's no sea left for me And how the sky gets heavy When you are underneath it! Oh I want to sail away from here. And god He came down down down down down down down down And said (down down down down down down down down) Nothing (down down down down down down down down He rolled up, asked him what he was sippin' on He said lean, You want to hit it, dawg? That's the same stuff Weezy's sippin' huh? And tons of other rappers that be spittin' hard Yup yup five a bone When he passed him that styrofoam the Easter pink, heard it in a rhyme before Finally got to see what all the hype was on And then he took a sip, sittin' in the Lincoln thinkin' he was pimpin' as he listen to the system Little did he know that it was just as addictive as bass Not the kind of hit from the kick drum Hot box, let the bass bump Take it to the face, gulp Months later the use went up Every blunt was accompanied by the pink stuff But Goddamn he loved that feelin' Purple rain coated in the throat Just so healin' Medicine alleviate the sickness Liquid affix and it comes with a cost Wake up, cold sweat, scratchin', itchin' Trying to escape the skin that barely fit him Gone, get another bottle just to get a couple swallows Headed towards the bottom couldn't get off it Didn't even think he had a problem Though he couldn't sleep without gettin' nauseous Room spinnin', thinkin' he might've sipped just a little bit too much of that cough syrup His eyelids closed shut Sat back in the chair clutchin' that cup Girlfriend came and a couple hours later said his name shook him but he never got up He never got up, he never got up We live on the cusp of death thinkin' that it won't be us It won't be us, it won't be us, it won't be us Nah, it won't be us Oh girl, this boat is sinking There's no sea left for me And how the sky gets heavy When you are underneath it! Oh. I want to sail away from here. And god. He came down down down down down down down down And said (down down down down down down down down) Nothing (down down down down down down down down) Now he just wanted to act like them He just wanted to rap like him Us as rappers underestimate the power and the effects that we have on these kids Blunt passed, ash in a tin, pack being pushed, harassed by the feds The fact of it is most people that rap like this talkin' about some shit they haven't lived Surprise, you know the drill Trapped in a box, declined record sales Follow the formula violence, drugs, and, sex sells So we try to sound like someone else This is not Californication There's no way to glorify this pavement Syrup, Percocet, and an eighth a day will leave you broke, depressed, and emotionally vacant Despite how Lil Wayne lives It's not conducive to being creative And I know 'cause he's my favorite And I know 'cause I was off that same mix Rationalize the shit that I'd try after I listen to dedication But he's an alien, I'd sip that shit, pass out or play Playstation Months later I'm in the same place No music made, feeling like a failure And trust me it's not dope to be 25 and move back to your parent's basement I've seen my people's dreams die I've seen what they can be denied And "weeds not a drug" - that's denial Groundhog Day life repeat each time I've seen Oxycontin take three lives I grew up with them, we used to chief dimes I've seen cocaine bring out the demons inside Cheatin' and lyin' Friendship cease, no peace in the mind Stealin' and takin' anything to fix the pieces inside Broken, hopeless, headed nowhere Only motivation for what the dealer's supplying That rush, that drug, that dope Those pills, that crumb, that roach Thinkin' I would never do that, not that drug And growing up nobody ever does Until you're stuck, lookin' in the mirror like I can't believe what I've become Swore I was goin' to be someone And growing up everyone always does We sell our dreams and our potential To escape through that buzz Just keep me up, keep me up Hollywood here we come Oh girl this boat is sinking There's no sea left for me And how the sky gets heavy When you are underneath it Oh, I want to sail away from here And god. He came down down down down down down down And said Nothing

Explains his addiction of all the bad things.
