Slim Shady, Eminem, Marshall Mathers, no matter what alter ego is used there seems to be someone they attack. Well, Shady already had a huge week on the charts for his first single "Just Lose It" off "Encore" which will be Eminem's 4th Major Album being released on Nov. 16th. Now its time for Marshall to arrive and show his face and this time around Marshall attacks President George W. Bush and the political, economical, & social state of America on the new song "Mosh". -- Entertainment

Lyrics to "Mosh"
by Eminem

I pledge allegiance ot the flag of the United States of America,
And to the Republic for which it stands,
One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
People - it feels so good to be back!
Scrutinize every word
Memorize every line
I speak it once,
Refuel, re-energize, and rewind
I give sight to the blind
My insight through the mind
I exercise my right to express when I feel it's time
It's just all in your mind, what you interpret it as
I say to fight, you take it as "I'mma whip someone's ass"
And if you don't understand, don't even bother to ask
A father who has grown up with a fatherless past
Who has grown up now to Rap Phenomenon that has
Four released shows, no difficulty multitaskin'
And juggling both, perhaps, mastered his craft, slash/
Entrepreneur, who's held on to a few more rat bags
Who's had a few obstacles thrown the last half
Of his career, typical manure, movin' past that
Mr. Kiss-His-Ass cracked, he's a class act
Brother pain man, yeah, he just snatched back

Come along, follow me, as I lead through the darkness
As I provide just enough spark that we need
To proceed, carry on, give me hope, give me strength
Come with me and I won't steer you wrong
Put your faith and your trust as I guide us through the fog
To the light at the end of the tunnel, we gon' fight
We gon' charge, we gon' stomp, we gon' march through the swamp
We gon' mosh through the marsh, take us right through the doors, come on

All the people on top, on the side and the middle
Come together, let's all fall and storm just a little
Just let it gradually build from the front to the back
All you can see is a sea of people, some white and some black
Don't matter what color - all that matters, we're gathered together
To celebrate for the same cause, no matter the weather
If it rains, let it rain - yeah, the wetter the better!
They ain't gon' stop us, they can't
We're stronger now more than ever
They tell us no, we say yeah
They tell us stop, we say go
Rebel with a rebel yell
Raise hell, we gon' let 'em know
Stomp, push off, mush - fuck Bush
Until they bring our troops home, come on, just -

Come along, follow me, as I lead through the darkness
As I provide just enough spark that we need
To proceed, carry on, give me hope, give me strength
Come with me and I won't steer you wrong
Put your faith and your trust as I guide us through the fog
To the light at the end of the tunnel, we gon' fight
We gon' charge, we gon' stomp, we gon' march through the swamp
We gon' mosh through the marsh, take us right through the doors, come on

Imagine it pourin', swayin' down on us
Mosh pits outside are overlogged, this
Someone's tryin' to tell us somethin'
Maybe this is God just sayin' we're responsible
For this monster, this coward, that we invent power
This is bin Laden - look at his head noddin' -
How could we allow somethin' like this without pumpin' our fist, now
This is our final hour

Let me be the voice, and your strength, and your choice
Let me simplify the rhyme just to amplify the noise
Try to amplify it, times it, and multiply it
By sixteen million people, all equal at this high pitch
Maybe we can reach Al Qaeda through my speech
Let the president answer our anarchy
Strap him with an AK-47, let him go fight his own war
Let him impress daddy that way
No more blood for oil, we got our own battles to fight on our own soil
No more psychological warfare to trick us to thinkin' that we ain't loyal
If we don't serve our own country - we're patronizing our heroes
Look in his eyes, it's all lies
The stars and stripes, they've been swiped, washed out, and wiped
And replaced with his own face - mosh now or die
If I get snagged tonight, you'll know why - 'cause I told you to fight

Come along, follow me, as I lead through the darkness
As I provide just enough spark that we need
To proceed, carry on, give me hope, give me strength
Come with me and I won't steer you wrong
Put your faith and your trust as I guide us through the fog
To the light at the end of the tunnel, we gon' fight
We gon' charge, we gon' stomp, we gon' march through the swamp
We gon' mosh through the marsh, take us right through the doors, come on

And as we proceed to mosh through this desert storm
In these closing statements, if they should argue, let us beg to differ
As we set aside our differences, and assemble our own army
To disarm this weapon of mass destruction that we call our president for the present
And mosh for the future of our next generation
To speak and be heard - Mr. President - Mr. Senator!
