  • I am phenomenal
    With every ounce of my blood
    With every breath in my lungs
    Won't stop until I'm phe-no-menal
    I am phenomenal
    However long that it takes
    I'll go to whatever lengths
    It's gonna make me a monster though
    I am phenomenal
    But I never say, 'Oh, it's impossible'
    'Cause I'm gonna be phenomenal

    Unstoppable, unpoppable thought bubbles
    Untoppable thoughts, fuckin' juggernaut that'll
    Stomp you in the verse, obstacles I'm drawn to 'em
    When the going got rough
    Show 'em what I done thought that was the worse, little sissy
    Who the fuck taught you how to persevere?
    There ain't no situation that you ever had to respond to that's adverse
    The messiest thing you've ever gone through is your purse
    Yeah, I don't try like Captain, I might as well
    Hang it up like a shelf, gotta keep growin' with it, evolve
    'Cause you can keep throwin' shit at the wall
    But you're gonna find that nothing's gonna stick until you apply yourself
    Time to slip in that zone till' I find myself
    Inside the realm where the unknown and boldly go
    In the waters where nobody else has gone before
    Or willing to go, uncharted, feeling is so
    Bomb, I'm feelin' myself, I'm a giant
    Sometimes I gotta remind myself that I am

    I am phenomenal
    With every ounce of my blood
    With every breath in my lungs
    Won't stop until I'm phe-no-menal
    I am phenomenal
    However long that it takes
    I'll go to whatever lengths
    It's gonna make me a monster though
    I am phenomenal
    But I never say, 'Oh, it's impossible'
    'Cause I'm gonna be phenomenal

    Let me self-empower you
    When you're down and they're tryin' to clown the fuck out of you
    When you feel like you're runnin' out of fuel
    I'll show you how to use doubt as fuel
    Convert it to gunpowder too
    Now what you do is put the match to the charcoal fluid
    Put a spark to it like Martha Stewart barbecuing
    Ah screw it, feel like you want to hit that wall then do it
    Punch through it, just cock back, put your all into it
    Now you gon' take that rage and make that what you raise
    Never take back what you say
    If you stay trapped in your brain, engage in this fueled cage match
    Ready to scrap asap
    Take your fists to his bones
    Show Biggie who's smallest you're Christopher Wallace
    Yeah I picture 'em all as plastic and foam
    Lays flat, where you put your dinner plates at
    And set it off like a placemat
    (I am phenomenal)
    And I want you to say that

    With every ounce of my blood
    With every breath in my lungs
    Won't stop until I'm phe-no-menal
    I am phenomenal
    However long that it takes
    I'll go to whatever lengths
    It's gonna make me a monster though
    I am phenomenal
    But I never say, 'Oh, it's impossible'
    'Cause I'm gonna be phenomenal

    Step into the unknown
    And find yourself your glory, free the ignoring person

    Got a fuckin' mouth with no shut-up valve
    Can't even cut the power to it, when it's what allowed
    Me to come up out from under the fuckin' ground
    Cause I worked my butt off now
    It's a subject I don't know how to shut up about
    'Cause I stuck it out
    Like a motherfucking tongue to tie, I responded when I got shoved around
    You're gonna have non-believers
    But when you're beyond belief, you probably shouldn't wonder how
    Get it how you live
    But are you prepared to give more than you get?
    And put in twice what you get back from this shit
    Though what you sacrifice barely is half, never give
    Rap is my shiv
    But it's like my shield at the same time I wield, I'ma knife this will
    Sometimes I feel just like B. Real from Cypress Hill
    How I can just kill a cypher, survivor's guilt
    I rhyme like life is still an uphill climb
    Ready to face it, each challenge waitin'
    Can taste it, it's salivation, I'm wagin' retaliation
    Look what I have built, reputation is delegation
    The only thing I'm capable of makin' is amazing
    Only thing you're capable of makin' is a false statement
    An accusation, I am legendary status, in fact
    That is the only way you'll ever be able to say
    Your legend is makin' an allegation
    I write with the left, same hand I hold the mic with
    As I fight to the death, 'til my last breath
    Managed to prove who the best man is
    Surveil it, all cards be the only ones left standing
    In the end, but I ain't gonna be the only one with the advantage
    Of knowing what it's like to be southpaw
    'Cause you can bet your ass you'll be left handed
    'Cause I am

    Phenomenal
    With every ounce of my blood
    With every breath in my lungs
    Won't stop until I'm phe-no-menal
    I am phenomenal
    However long that it takes
    I'll go to whatever lengths
    It's gonna make me a monster though
    I am phenomenal
    But I never say, 'Oh, it's impossible'
    'Cause I'm gonna be phenomenal Writer/s: Marshall Mathers III, Luis Edgardo Resto, Mario Resto
