[Eminem singing]

There's an intruder
In my house
He cut my phone-lines
Can't dial out
I scream for police
But I doubt
They're gonna hear me
When I shout

[Rapping]

A couple of cocktails will send me to jail
There's a couple of cops hot on my trail
But this time, when I get pulled over
There's a doberman pinscher and a pitbull in the seat
These pigs 'll get bit fooling with me
Quit fooling with me
B***h, you're gonna see
No pistol in the seat
Why it always gotta be an issue when you're me
And which you're gonna see in the long run
I'm'a be the wrong one
You wanna harass with this limo tinted glass
Flashin that flash-light on my a** where was you at
Last night when them assholes
Ran up on my grass
Rapper slash actor
Kiss the crack on my cracker slashed a**
They took away my right to bear arms
What I'm posed to fight with bear palms?
Yeah right
They coming with bombs, I'm comin with flare-guns
We as americans

[Chorus:]

We as Americans
Us as a citizen
Gotta protect ourselves
Look at our s**t has been
We better check ourselves
Livin up in these streets
Through worse and through better health
Surviving by any means
We as Americans
Us as a citizen
We are samaritans
What do we get us in
We better check ourselves
Look at our s**t has been
Take a look where you live
This is America
And we are Americans

I'm'a make Vuku bucks
Wearin Vuku vests
Drama hanging over my head like a voodoo hex
I could've been next to fly over the cuckoo's nest
But you know who
Whith an "S" tatooed to my chest
But I've innested
Now I got the Industry pissy
Eversince me and Dre split it fifty-fifty on fifty it's funny
We got a buzz spreading quicker than making paper-airplanes out of a twenty
F**k money I don't rap for dead presidents
I'd rather see the president dead
It's never been said
But I said precedents and the standards
And they can't stand it
My name should've been b*****d
The s**t should've been plastered
On my forehead with a stamp
I should've been blasted
I should've been had a cap pulled in my a**
But I'm too swift and fast
For that, I'm past it
I'm too old to go and cruise Gratiot
F**k that s**t
I done seen a fastest rap s**t
And turning into some pap-pap s**t
That quick
Snap click
But this time they got f*****g auto-ma-tic
(Jamaican) and no one gon' test this mon
Clack

[Chorus:]
We as a Americans
Us as a citizen
Gotta protect ourselves
Look at our s**t has been
We better check ourselves
Livin up in these streets
Through worse and through better health
Surviving by any means
We as Americans
Us as a citizen
We are samaritans
What do we get us in
We better check ourselves
Look at our s**t has been
Take a look where you live
This is America
And we are Americans

(Sshhh)
I got a secret if you can keep it between us
I tuck two Nina's under my jeans either side of my p****
Under my Long Johns
Under my Sean Johns
When running with the long arm or the long long gone
I'm'a do five years no less than that
No questions asked
It might be a good idea to stop right here
And quit while I'm ahead
Already in the red
Already got a steady infrared meant for my head
A target on my back
Bigger problems than that
Bin Laden on my a**
He probly gone send a task
I ain't gone even ask
They ain't gone let me pack
They ain't gone gimme my semi but I got my Whizz at

We as Americans
Us as a citizen
Gotta protect ourselves
Look at our s**t has been
We better check ourselves
Livin up in these streets
Through worse and through better health
Surviving by any means
We are Americans
Us as a citizen
We as samaritans
What do we get us in
We better check ourselves
Look at our s**t has been
Take a look where you live
This is America
And we are Americans
