Mosh

this is just simply amazing!

http://boss.streamos.com/qtime/inter...0_mosh-rev.mov

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

Am watching it now. I'm not always an Eminem fan but this is just amazing. Too bad he didn't realize earlier.

And another link of that one is loaded up. If you have to wait for it to load, wait for it. It's a must see.

Eminem gets it.

We will see if red states still believe the hype.

The left is embracing Eminem now?

I guess all principles are out the window for a shot at the presidency.

Admittedly it's rather incongruous. Someone posted it on one of my liberal lists. I'm still not an Eminem fan myself.

it's not a matter of being an em fan or not...it's a matter of this particular song.

As far as liberalism goes...Eminem isn't saying Kerry is the guy either...he's just saying that Bush is NOT the guy.

I warmed up to Eminem on the last record and after his duet with Elton John. I've always felt there was something really substantive underneath that angry, obnoxious facade and hoped he would outgrow that or at least channel his anger in a more meaningful (not sure if that's the right word) way. I like this, but I'm not saying that he has 'changed' or anything; he's just pissed off with this administration like a lot of people and has incorporated it into his art. But maybe next time he could be bashing Bono for all we know, lol.

And on a related side note, here's a quote from Nobel laureate Seamus Heaney that I stumbled upon last year and found it interesting from the point of view of how one of the world's greatest living poets hears a rapper:

Seamus Heaney praises Eminem

American rap star Eminem has been praised by leading poet Seamus Heaney for his "verbal energy".

Mr Heaney, 64, also said Eminem had "sent a voltage around a generation".

He made the comment when asked by a journalist if there was a figure in popular culture who aroused interest in poetry and lyrics in the way that Bob Dylan and John Lennon did during the 1960s and 70s.

Mr Heaney, former Professor of Poetry at Oxford University, said: "There is this guy Eminem. He has created a sense of what is possible.

"He has sent a voltage around a generation.

"He has done this not just through his subversive attitude but also his verbal energy."

Eminem's Political video ; "Mosh"

HAve you guys seen the video for this?

If you haven't yet, It is a propaganda based video trying to demonize President Bush. The long and short of it: the video has Eminem leading people to the polls from an apparant darkened waste-land.

I really don't understand Eminem on this one. What makes him the political guru? Does he even know anything about politics?

On another note, I think this video is being released way too late. The election is in only 5 days!
