"
me, walk with me!
Don't let this symbolism kill your heart!
Walk with me, walk with me!
Just like we should have done right from the start!
Walk with me, walk with me!
Don't let this fuckin' world tear you apart!
"Come with me" refers to another person whom they understand to have sustained similar damage. They tell him that he is not alone, that they understand how the other person feels. That they know how to get through this emotional breakdown together. This verse is like showing them a way out through unity. Despite all the damage, they still need someone by their side.
There is this saying that happiness becomes double when you share it with someone and sadness splits in half.

Explanation
"
With my face against the floor
I can see you knocked me out of the way
I don't want to get back up
But I have to, solid mines we'll be today
Nothin' appeals to me, no one fells like me
I'm too busy bein' called to disappear
I'm no shape to be alone
Contrary to the shit that you might hear

[Chorus:]
So
The music gives you the feeling of something malfunctioning, a soul most likely that is lost. This song is likely to describe how a person responds and copes with setbacks in their life. Something devastating happens to them and they get emotionally damaged. "Life" has brought them down violently and they feel like all hope is gone. A person who has fallen face down has in most cases sustained heavy damage. The verse saying "My face against the floor" emphasizes that. However, they know that once you reach the bottom there is no other way than up and they have to get back up and not let this (fucking) world tear them up.

With the "I don't want to get back up, but I have to" indicates that they will get back up thus, the damage will heal one way or another. The mental situation they are makes them think no one has endured such pain and knowing that no one can understand this pain frustrates them even further. But then there's that other verse below.

This song is not for the livin'
This song is for the dead
The first two verses inform us that this song is for the "dead". This is (obviously) a metaphor. It is a song for those who have been through hard times and were driven to the edge, scarring them permanently. They're still alive physically, but they are dead inside.

Meaning
This song describes the psychological burnout Eminem faced and still faces after becoming famous. He devoted (sold his "soul") himself to Hollywood years ago and entered the celebrity web. Being one of the best (probably the best according to fans) he drew way too much attention to himself. Now he misses the times he used to hate. Being just a nobody. A person you would look at for no more than 2 seconds. Today wherever he goes, every person in the room is around him asking questions and "wiping his ass". Receiving too much attention is equally as bad as receiving none. In some cases, even more. He wants to be alone and treated just like everybody else. This song is probably his way of saying to his fans to leave him be if they see him on the street. You have to understand that all artists in the Hollywood Music Industry are constantly under pressure by the producers and becoming independent there requires many years of hard work. (listen to SOAD-Lost in Hollywood, you'll understand everything). Now, this constant pressure accompanied by that kind of attention he gets makes him feel alone once again. Back where he started. Not being able to find someone to really understand him. Like reaching the top was just water under the bridge.
