[Intro: Polina]
Tell me where to go, tell me what to do, I’ll be right there for you
Tell me what to say, don’t matter if it’s true, I’ll say it all for you

[Verse 1: Eminem]
I used to be the type of kid that, would always think the sky is falling
Why am I so differently wired? Am I a martian?
What kind of twisted experiment am I involved in
Cause I don't belong in this world
That’s why I'm scoffing at authority, defying often
Flying off at the handle with my mom, no dad
So I’m non-compliant at home, at school I’m just shy and awkward
And no I don’t need no goddamn psychologist
Tryna diagnose why I have all these underlying problems
Thinking he can try and solve 'em, I’m outside chalking up
Drawings on the sidewalk and in the front drive talking to myself
Either that or inside hiding off in
The corner somewhere quiet, trying not to be noticed
I’m crying and sobbing, I had a bad day at school so I ain't talking
Some cocksucker shoved me into a fucking locker, cuz he said I eyeballed him

[Bridge: Polina]
And if you fall, ill get you there, I’ll be your savior from all the wars
That are fought inside your world, please have faith in my words cause

[Hook: Polina]
This is my legacy (Legacy)
This is my legacy (Legacy)
There’s no guarantee, it’s not up to me you can only see
This is my legacy (Legacy)
Legacy (Legacy)

[Verse 2: Eminem]
I used to be the type of kid that, would always think the sky is falling
Why am I so differently wired in my noggin?
Cause sporadic as my thoughts come, it's mind boggling
Cause I obsess on everything, in my mind mall shit bothers me
But now my father, he said Sayonara,then split
But I don’t give a shit I’m fine long as
There's batteries in my Walkman,nothing is the matter with me
Shit look at the bright side at least I ain’t walking
I bike ride through the neighborhood of my apartment
Complex on a ten speed which I've acquired parts that I
Find in the garbage, a frame and put tires on it
Headphones on straight ahead and kids try to start shit
But if this all there is for me, Life offers
Why bother even trying to put up a fight, tt's nonsense
But I think a lightbulb just lit up in my conscience
What about those rhymes I've been jottin'
They are kinda giving me confidence
Instead of tryina escape through my comics
Why don't I just blast a little something like Onyx
To put me in the mood to wanna fight and write songs that
Say what I wanna say to the kid that said that I eyeballed him
Grab hold of my balls like that's right fight's on bitch
Who would've knew from the moment I turned the mic on that
I could be iconic, in my conquest
Word to Phife Dawg from a Tribe Called Quest

[Hook: Polina]
This is my legacy (Legacy)
This is my legacy (Legacy)
There’s no guarantee, it’s not up to me you can only see
This is my legacy (Legacy)
Legacy (Legacy)

[Verse 3: Eminem]
I used to be the type of kid that, would always think the sky is falling
Now I think the fact that I'm differently wired's awesome
Cause if I wasn't I wouldn't be able to work
Words like this and connect lines like crosswords
And use my enemy's words as strength
To try and draw from, and get inspired off em
Cause all my life I was told and taught I am not shit
By you wack fucking giant sacks of lying dog shit
Now you shut up bitch I am talking
Thought I was full of horseshit and now
You fucking worship the ground in which I am walking
Me against the world so what? I'm Brian Dawkins
Versus the whole 0-16 Lions offense
So bring on the Giants Falcons and Miami Dolphins
It's the body bag game bitch I'm supplying coffins
Cause you dicks butt kiss, a bunch of Brian Baldingers
You gon die a ball licker, I've been diabolical
With this dialogue since '99 Rawkus
You don't respect the legacy I leave behind y'all can
Suck a dick The day you beat me pigs'll fly out my ass
And a flying saucer full of Italian sausage
The most high exalting and I ain't halting
Till I die of exhaustion inhale my exhaust fumes
The best part about me is I am not you
I am me I'm a fire marshall and this is my

[Hook: Polina]
This is my legacy (Legacy)
This is my legacy (Legacy)
There’s no guarantee, it’s not up to me you can only see
This is my legacy (Legacy)
Legacy (Legacy)
