LETRA 'WALL ON WATER'

[Beyoncé & Eminem]
I walk on water
But I ain't no Jesus
I walk on water
But only when it freezes (fuck)

[Eminem]
Why are expectations so high? Is it the bar I set?
My arms, I stretch, but I can't reach
A far cry from it, or it's in my grasp, but as
Soon as I grab, squeeze
I lose my grip like the flyin' trapeze
Into the dark I plummet, now the sky's blackening
I know the mark's high, butter–
flies rip apart my stomach
Knowin' that no matter what bars I come with
You're gonna harp, gripe, and
That's a hard Vicodin to swallow, so I scrap these
As pressure increases like khakis
I feel the ice cracking, because—

[Beyoncé & Eminem]
I walk on water
But I ain't no Jesus
I walk on water (shit)
But only when it freezes

[Eminem]
It's the curse of the standard
That the first of the Mathers disc set
Always in search of the verse that I haven't spit yet
Will this step just be another misstep
To tarnish whatever the legacy, love or respect
I've garnered? The rhyme has to be perfect, the delivery flawless
And it always feels like I'm hittin' the mark
'Til I go sit in the car, listen and pick it apart
Like, "This shit is garbage!"
God's given me all this, still I feel no different regardless
Kids look to me as a god, this is retarded
If only they knew, it's a facade and it's exhaustive
And I try not to listen to nonsense
But if you bitches are tryin' to strip me of my confidence
Mission accomplished
I'm not God-sent, Nas, Rakim, Pac, B.I.G., James Todd Smith
And I'm not Prince, so…

[Beyoncé]
I walk on water
But I ain't no Jesus
I walk on water
But only when it freezes
'Cause I'm only human, just like you
Making my mistakes, oh if you only knew
I don't think you should believe in me the way that you do
'Cause I'm terrified to let you down, oh

[Eminem]
It's true, I'm a Rubik's — a beautiful mess
At times juvenile, yes, I goof and I jest
A flawed human, I guess
But I'm doin' my best to not ruin your ex–
pectations and meet 'em, but first
The "Speedom" verse, now Big Sean
He's goin' too fast, is he gonna shout or curse out his mom?
There was a time I had the world by the balls, eatin' out my palm
Every album song I was spazzin' the f*** out on
And now I'm gettin' clowned and frowned on
But the only one who's looking down on me that matters now's DeShaun — am I lucky to be around this long?
Begs the question though
Especially after the methadone
As yesterday fades and the Dresden home
Is burnt to the ground, and all that's left of my house is lawn
The crowds are gone
And it's time to wash out the blonde
Sales decline, the curtains drawn
They're closin' the set, I'm still pokin' my head from out behind
And everyone who has doubt, remind
Now take your best rhyme, outdo it, now do it a thousand times
Now let 'em tell ya the world no longer cares or gives a f*** about your rhymes
And as I grow outta sight, outta mind, I might go outta mine
'Cause how do I ever let this mic go without a fight
When I made a fuckin' tightrope outta twine?
But when I do fall from these heights though, I'll be fine
I won't pout or cry or spiral down or whine
But I'll decide if it's my final bow this time around, 'cause—

[Beyoncé]
I walk on water
But I ain't no Jesus
I walk on water
But only when it freezes

'Cause I'm only human, just like you
I've been making my mistakes, oh if you only knew
I don't think you should believe in me the way that you do
'Cause I'm terrified to let you down, oh
If I walked on water, I would drown

[Eminem]
'Cause I'm just a man
But as long as I got a mic, I'm godlike
So me and you are not alike
Bitch, I wrote "Stan"

Sobre Wall On Water

  • "Walk on Water" detalla la lucha que Eminem sufrió durante la última mitad de su carrera.

  • La frase "Wall On Water" se usa para expresar una milagrosa demostración de poder, ya que se origina en Mateo 14:22-33 donde se dice que Jesús literalmente caminó sobre el agua para llegar a una barca llena de sus discípulos. Irónicamente, la frase se usa en la canción para expresar lo contrario. Aunque una celebridad tan grande como Em aparentemente "camina sobre el agua", admite en cada versículo que no es comparable a la figura divina que la gente cree que es.

  • Desde su regreso en 2009, sus críticos han mostrado desinterés por la presencia de Eminem esta vez.

  • Eminem dijo lo siguiente en una entrevista con Complex en diciembre de 2017: "No sé, esa canción era más sobre dudas, inseguridades, ese tipo de mierda. No me considero ningún dios, la forma en que he visto actuar a algunos fans hacia mí  aún me resulta raro hoy en día, porque sólo rapeo y ciertamente no he tenido una carrera perfecta. He sacado algunos discos no tan buenos y me doy cuenta de eso".
