Arose Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
If I could rewind time like a tape
Inside a boombox, one day for every pill or percocet that I ate
Cut down on the valium, I'd've heard everything
But death is tuning so definite, wait
They got me all hooked up to some machine
I love you bean, didn't want you to know I was struggling
Feels like I'm underwater submerged like a submarine
Just heard that nurse say, my liver and kidneys are fucntioning
Been flirtatious with death, skirt-chasing I guess
It's arrivederce, same nurse just heard say they're unplugging me
And it's your birthday
Jade, I'm missing your birthday
Baby girl I'm sorry, I fuckin' hate when you hurt, Hay
And sweeties, thank you for waiting to open gifts
But girls you can just open 'em, dad ain't makin' it home for christmas
Wish I had the strength to just blow a kiss
I go to make a fist but I can't make one, I'm frozen stiff
I yell but nothing comes out, I'm crying, inside I shout
My vocal chords won't permit me, I scream but it's now aloud
You put your arm around momma, the karma, wow
I just though about the aisle I'll never get to walk you's down
Never see you graduate in your caps and gowns
It's 'bout to be 2008, how's this happenin' now?
I got so much more to do
And proof I'm truly sorry if I let you down, but this tore me in two
The thought of no more me and you,
You gave me shoes, Nikes like new, for me for school
Doody, I'm trying but you, you were the glue that binded
So many things, time, I'd give anything to rewind it
I had to walk down my halls and constantly be reminded
By pictures all on my walls and I couldn't sleep at night 'cause
That image burnin' my brain of you on that table,
Me falling across your body not able to stand to save you
God, why did you take him?
I'm trying to keep his legacy alive but I'm dying, where's Nathan?
Little ladies be brave, take care of your mother
Smile pretty for pictures, always cherish each other
Verse 2
I'll always love ya, and I'll be in the back of your memory
And I know you'll never forget me just dont get sad when remembering
And little bro, keep making me proud
You better marry that girl 'cause she's faithfully down
And when you're exchanging those sacred vows
Just know that if I could be there I would
And should you ever see partenthood I know you'll be good at it
Oh, almost forgot to do something, thank my father too
I actually learned a lot from you, you taught me what not to do
And mom, wish I'd've had the chance to have one last heart-to heart honest and open talk with you
Duty, I see you, I got to walk to you
And I can feel my soul leave my body and float across the room
Nurses lean over the bed, pulling tubes out
Then the sheet over my head, shut the room down
Girls, please don't get upset, I see them cheeks soaking and wet
As you squeeze, holdin' my neck, forcibly don't wanna let
Me go, pillow drenched, emotional wrecks
With every second, each closer to death
But suddenly I feel my heart begin to beat slow, then a breath
Machines go, must've guessed the cheat codes to this shit
I'm tryna rewind time like a tape, find an escape
Make a beeline, trying to wake
From this dream I need to refine
My inner strength, to remind me
Even if a steep climb I must take, to rewrite a mistake
I'm rewinding the tape
Verse 3
Want it, I'll put out this last album then I'm done with it
One hundred percent finished fed up with it, I'm hanging it up
Fuck it! Excuse the cursing, baby, but just know
That I'm a good person, though they portray me as cold
And if things should worsen, but I'll betcha they won't
I'm pledging to throw this methadone in the toilet
Shred these old letters I wrote on that old pathetic loathing
Closing credits can roll
I'm proud to be back
I'm 'bout to, like a rematch
Outdo Relapse with Recovery, Mathers LP two
Helped propel me to
Victory laps
Gas toward 'em and fast forward the past
Considered a mass foreman in fact
This song I'd've sang to my daughter
If I'd've made it to to hospital in less than two hours later
But I fought it, came back like a boomerang on 'em
Now a new day is dawning
I'm up, Tuesday, it's morning
Now I know
