Look At The Bright Side, My Life is Full of Empty Promises and Broken Dreams

Aiyyo!
This song is dedicated - to all the happy people
All the happy people - who have real nice lives
And who have no idea what it's like, to be broke as fuck

That's Rock Bottom - when this life makes you mad enough to kill
That's Rock Bottom - when you want somethin bad enough to steal
That's Rock Bottom - when you feel like you've had it up to here
Cause you mad enough to scream but you sad enough to tear

We see them dollar signs
and let the cash blind us
Money'll brainwash you
and leave yo' ass mindless.

My life is full of empty promises and broken dreams
I'm hopin' things look up; but there ain't no job openings
I feel discouraged, hungry and malnourished
Living in this house with no furnace, unfurnished
And I'm sick of workin dead end jobs with lame pay
And I'm tired of being hired and fired the same day
But fuck it, if you know the rules to the game, play
Cause when we die we know we all going the same way.

- Eminem, Rock Bottom
