Get Me Gone (Fort Minor)

The dude, he said that, like when we were making The first Linkin Park record, he was like "Yeah, you know, I don't know about the rapping like I don't know if it's, like maybe you should just be a rock band" You know what I mean, like trying to change us Like they signed us as an act Like what we sound like and then he's like "Oh, I don't know, maybe you should just play keyboard" Before the first song that you heard me on There were people already tryin' to get me gone Tellin' me to quit rapping, just play the keys That my band had a singer, they didn't need me But my band had my back, so we did the tracks Put out the album and the talk went flat It was funny at first but then the humor faded When some magazines printed that our label made us We were to be good to be true Some were saying ghost writers were writin' all that we do So we had to disprove it, we spelled it out to the detail how we do it When we're making this music, after that I made it a rule I only do e-mail responses to print interviews Because these people love to put a twist to your words To infer that you said something fucking absurd Oh, did I lose you at infer? Not used to hearing a verse that uses over first grade vocabulary words? People used to infer that we were manufactured Now I've got the interviews on file Which people said what, which number to dial So now every enemy screaming insanity All they're ever gonna be's another big fan of me Bitch Ha ha ha, you believe that? Like that's crazy Sounds crazy right? You're like this point, at this point you figure You hear that and you're like, "That guy is out of his mind" But honestly at that point, besides the fact that he wanted me To just play keyboard or whatever, he didn't want me to rap He was like maybe Joe Hahn should, um, wear a lab coat And a cowboy hat on st, like when we play I swear to God he's crazy, it was crazy, cowboy hat, yeah And later on he claimed that he wrote our All our songs, so that was real nice
