As I Em Submit Correct Lyrics

Take me as I am my friends
Ain't gon' change, won't be no end
Write these songs, rock these shows
Only good life I know

I was in seventh grade when I heard the Slim Shady LP
Yeah, my mom brought it down when I was ironin', irony
Gettin' out the wrinkles, just a little kid in middle school
Sink my teeth in anythin' to think I'm cool, ridin' the bus

I feel the rush from, I still don't give a fuck
Yeah, I wish I could agree but I've already had enough
I've already given up from playin' the same game
Every interview, feel like I'm sayin' the same thing, like

Em was great, yeah he paved the way for me
He was inspiration for everybody from A to Z
But they keep relatin' me, I can' get away, chasin' me
All day long, I hear it, all day long

And now the masters think that Asher wants to be a Marshall Mather's
They say Asher's not a rapper, na his ass is just an actor
'Cause we have the same complexion and similar voice inflection
It's easy to see the pieces and the reach for that connection

Each second of every minute, each hour of everyday
I'm constantly on defense defendin' my own name
Explainin' we're not the same
Not much that I can say, except I'm sick of it
Critics out only sparked up a flame, it's on

Take me as I am my friends
Ain't gon' change, won't be no end
Write these songs, rock these shows
Only good life I know
Take me as I am my friends
Ain't gon' change, won't be no end
Write these songs, rock these shows
Only good life I know

Now don't get it twisted, I've definitely benefited
It's like suddenly everyone wants to hear what I've been spittin'
It's so different, the image they don't get it
It's simple, I'm just a kid who wants to rap to make a livin'

But Em was in it way before I committed
And his lyrics were the shit, so I really gotta come with it
But each critics be pickin' apart my writings
If it isn't up to par then Asher's Paul is just a gimmick

Is it my fault, must I be more convincin'?
Y'all talk all you want, never halt me from my mission
Use it as ammunition, would you please keep dissin' me?
All day long, I hear it, all day long

And yeah, the haters wanna hate because I made it and I'm famous
But until you take my place, you'll never know 'bout
What it takes to make a record for respect, take a second to inspect
When you look like someone else, then what the fuck do you expect?

I just want to be accepted as the illest in the game
But it's harder for an artist creatin' his own lane
That's anonymous with rhymin' and combine with perfect timin'
On the time that's now declinin' and about to explode, so hold on

Take me as I am my friends
Ain't gon' change, won't be no end
Write these songs, rock these shows
Only good life I know
Take me as I am my friends
Ain't gon' change, won't be no end
Write these songs, rock these shows
Only good life I know

So fuck it that's all I got, there's nothin' else for me to say
If I don't confront the problem, it will never go away
Unless it is addressed there's nothin' left for me to do
It's impossible rejectin' an elephant in the room

Say goodbye to all the bullshit, notions preconceived
So long to all the blogs who coulda swore they knew me
If you have no further questions and can't think of other thoughts
Then I'd like to introduce you to Asher Paul Roth

Take me as I am my friends
Ain't gon' change, won't be no end
Write these songs, rock these shows
Only good life I know
Take me as I am my friends
Ain't gon' change, won't be no end
Write these songs, rock these shows
Only good life I know
