Say Goodbye Hollywood
by Eminem



[Chorus:Repeat x8]
Say goodbye say goodbye to Hollywood

[Chorus]

Hollywood
I feel this way

I thought I had it all figured out I did
I thought I was tough enough to stick it out with Kim
But I wasn't tough enough to juggle two things at once
I found myself planted on my knees in cuffs

Which should of been a reason enough for me to get my stuff and just leave
How come I couldn't just see this s*** myself its me
Nobody could of seen this s*** I felt
Knowing damn well she wasn't gonna be there when I fell

To catch me the minute she was seen she just bailed
I'm standing and swingin' on like 30 people by myself
I couldn't even see the millimeter when it fell
Turned around saw Gary stashin' a heater in his belt

Saw the bouncers rush him and beat him to the ground
I just sold two million records I don't need to go to jail
I'm not about to lose my freedom over no female
I need to slow down, tryna get my feet on solid ground

So for now

[Chorus]

Bury my face in comic books, 'cause I don't want to look
And nothing in this world is too much
I swallowed all I could
If I could swallow a bottle of Tylenol I would

And hit it for good and say good bye to Hollywood
I probably should 'cause these problems are piled all at once
Cause everything that bothers me I got all bottled up
I think I'm bottoming out but I'm not about to give up

I gotta get up, thank god I got a little girl
Now I'm a responsible father so not a lot of good
I'd be to my daughter laying in the bottom of the mud
Must be in my blood 'cause I don't know how to do it

All I know is that I don't want her following in the footsteps
Of my dad 'cause I hate him so bad
Worst feeling I had was growing up to be like his f***ing a**
Man if you could understand why I am the way that I am
What do I say to my fans when I tell em

[Chorus]

I don't want to quit
This s***, it feels like this is it
For me to have this much I feel like this is it
This is not a game this fame the real life is as sick

Publicity my a**, consume my f***ing dick
F*** the guns, I'm done ill never look at gats
If I scrap, I'ma scrap it like I never wooped some a**
I love my fans but no one ever puts a grasp on the fact

That I sacrificed everything I had
I never dreamed I'd get to the level that I'm at
This is wack, this is more then I ever could of asked
Everywhere I go I had a sweater, hood or mask

What about math? how come I wasn't never good at that
Its like the boy in a bubble who never could adapt I'm trapped
If I could go back, I never would of rapped
I sold my soul to the devil, ill never get it back

I just want to leave this game with level head intact
Imagine going from being no one and seein' everything blow up
And all you did was grow up MCeein'
Its f***ing crazy, all I wanted was to give Hailey the life I never had
I've forced us to live alienated, so I'm saying

[Chorus]

Goodbye
Goodbye Hollywood
Please don't cry for me
When I'm gone for good

So, goodbye
Goodbye Hollywood
Please don't cry for me
When I'm gone for good
