    (News Feed Intro)
    Breaking News: Detroit Rapper Eminem cancels his sold out European
    tour to check himself into rehab, after admitting an addiction to sleep
    medication. We'll have more on this story as it develops...
    Shady Records recording artist Obie Trice has apparently survived
    a gunshot to the head, in what appears to be a random
    drive by shooting, meanwhile Eminem is rumored to be...
    On-and-off-again relationship with...
    This just in, a tour bus involving Eminem's...
    Updating a story we brought to you earlier about gunfire at an
    after hours club, we've learned that the rapper Proof has been
    fatally shot...
    Shady Aftermath recording artist...
    Long time best friend of Eminem and a member of the rap group D12...
    D12 back in the news again today...
    Is it a sabbatical or the end? The rumors and speculation
    continue to swirl around Eminem; he insists he's just taking a break,
    but now its believed hes retiring, leaving us all to ask:
    Will the Real Slim Shady please stand up?

    [Verse 1]

    So this is it...
    This is what I wished for
    Just isn't how I envisioned it
    Fame to the point of imprisonment
    I just thought the shit'd be different
    But something changed
    The minute that I got a whiff of it
    I started to inhale it
    Smell it
    Started sniffin' it
    And it became my cocaine
    I just couldn't quit
    I just wanted a little bit
    Then it turned me (in)to a monster
    I became a hypocrite
    Concert after concert

    I was raking in the dough
    Rolling in green
    Had the game hemmed up
    Like a sewing machine
    But I was losing my freedom
    There was no where for me
    To not go and be seen
    And just go and be me
    And there was no in-between
    You either loved it or hate it

    Every CD critics gave it a 3, then 3
    Years later, they'd go back and re-rate it
    And call the Slim Shady LP the greatest
    The Marshall Mathers was a classic
    The Eminem Show was fantastic
    But Encore just didn't have the caliber to match it
    I guess enough time just ain't passed, yet
    A couple more years, that shit'll be ill-matic
    And eight years later, I'm still at it
    Divorce, re-married
    A felon
    A father
    Sleeping pill addict
    And this is real talk
    I feel like the Incredible Hulk
    My back has been broke, and I can still walk

    [Chorus]

    So be careful what you wish for
    'Cause you just might get it
    And if you get it then you just might not know
    What to do wit' it, 'cause it might just
    Come back on you ten-fold

    I said

    Be careful what you wish for
    'Cause you just might get it
    And if you get it then you just might not know
    What to do wit' it, 'cause it might just
    Come back on you ten-fold

    [Verse 2]

    I got a letter from a fan, that said
    He's been praying for me
    Every day and for some reason
    It's been weighing on my mind heavy
    'Cause I don't read every
    Letter I get, but something told me to go ahead and open it, but
    Why would someone pray for you when they don't know you?
    You didn't pray for me when I was local
    And as I lay these vocals
    I think of all the shit I had to go through
    Just to get to where I'm at
    I've already told you at least

    A thousand times in these rhymes
    I appreciate the prayer, but I've already got
    God on my side
    And it's been one hell of a ride, hasn't it?
    Just watchin' it from an opposite standpoint
    Man, boy's got to look
    Nuts
    And that's the only word I can think of right now
    On how
    To describe the shit
    This is like a vibe you get
    Go ahead and bob to it
    Just watch what you wish for, 'cause I got the shit

    [Chorus]

    So be careful what you wish for
    'Cause you just might get it
    And if you get it then you just might not know
    What to do wit' it, 'cause it might just
    Come back on you ten-fold

    I said

    Be careful what you wish for
    'Cause you just might get it
    And if you get it then you just might not know
    What to do wit' it, 'cause it might just
    Come back on you ten-fold
