Need a Doctor
by Eminem

I'm about to lose my mind
You've been gone for so long,
I'm running out of time.
I need a doctor
Call me a doctor
I need a doctor (doctor)
To bring me back to live

I told the world
One day I would pay it back
Say it on tape an' lay it. Record it so that
one day I can play it back
But I don't even know if I believe it when I'm saying that
Doubts starting to creep in, every day is just so grey an' black
Hope. I just need a ray of that
Cause no one sees my vision
An' when I play it for 'em they say its whack
But they don't know what dope is
And I don't know if I was awake or asleep when I wrote this
All I know is, you came to me when I was at my lowest
You picked me up
Breathed new life in me, I owe my life to you
Before the life of me I don't see why you don't see like I do
But it just dawned on me, you lost a son!Demon's fighting you
It's dark
Let me turn on the lights to inbrighten it,
to enlighten you
I don't think you realize what you mean to me,
not the slightest clue
Cause me an' you were like a crew,
I was like your sidekick
You gonna either wanna fight,
when I get off this --- mic
Or you gon' hug me
But I'm outta options
There's nothin' else I could do cause...


It hurts when I see you struggle
You come to me with ideas
You say they just pieces, so I'm puzzled
Cause the --- I hear is crazy
but your either getting lazy or you don't believe in you no more
seems like your own opinions, not one you can form
cant make a decision you keep questioning yourself
second guessing and its almost like your begging for my help
like I'm your leader
your supposed to --- be my mentor
I can endure no more,
I demand you remember who you are
It was YOU, who believed in me,
when everyone was telling you don't sign me
everyone at the --- label, lets tell the truth
You risked your career for me
I know it as well as you
Nobody wanted to --- with the white boy
Dre, I'm crying in this booth!
You saved my life, now maybe its my turn to save yours
But I can never repay you, what you did for me is way more
but I ain't givin' up faith.And you ain't giving up on me
Get up Dre, I'm dying, I need you, come back for ---'s sake cause


It literally feels like a lifetime ago
but I still remember the shit like it was just yesterday though
you walked in, yellow jump suit
whole room, cracked jokes
once you got inside the booth, told you, like smoke
went through friends, some of them I put on
but they just left, they said they was riding to the death
but where the --- are they now
now that I need them, I don't see none of them
all I see is Slim
--- all you fair-weather friends
all I need is him
--- backstabbers
when the chips were down,you just laughed at us
Now you bout to feel the --- wrath of aftermath, ---
You gon' see us in our lab jackets and ask us where the --- we been
You can kiss my indecisive --- crack.Maggots and the crackers ---
Little crack a jack beat making wack math,
backwards producers, I'm back ---
One more CD and then I'm packing up my bags and as I'm leaving
I'll guarantee they scream,"Dre don't leave us like that man cause"
