With all the recent discussion here about abusive mothers, the new release by Eminem, "Cleaning Out the Closet" comes to mind. Certainly evokes thoughts and feelings.

Good tune. Ripped it off the net and gave it a listen.

Listening to Nebraska/Springsteen. An album of regret, mourning and frustration. But it's not mawkish and self-pitying. Speaks volumes about the collective pain we all feel. Always makes me feel good.

I posted this a while back, he doesnt seem like such a bad guy really. Everybody accuses him of being a homphobe, but he did a duet with elton john for crying out loud. (He IS gay right? i thought he was, but i dont keep track of celbreties well. Even if he isn't, the way he dresses would send most homphobes running.)

Artist: Eminem
Album: The Eminem Show
Title: Cleaning Out My Closet


[Intro]
Where's my snare?
I have no snare in my headphones - there you go
Yeah.. yo, yo

Have you ever been hated or discriminated against?
I have; I've been protested and demonstrated against
Picket signs for my wicked rhymes, look at the times
Sick as the mind of the motherfuckin kid that's behind
all this commotion emotions run deep as ocean's explodin
Tempers flarin from parents just blow 'em off and keep goin
Not takin nothin from no one give 'em hell long as I'm breathin
Keep kickin ass in the mornin and takin names in the evenin
Leave 'em with a taste as sour as vinegar in they mouth
See they can trigger me, but they'll never figure me out
Look at me now; I bet ya probably sick of me now ain't you momma?
I'ma make you look so ridiculous now

I'm sorry momma!
I never meant to hurt you!
I never meant to make you cry; but tonight
I'm cleanin out my closet (one more time)
I said I'm sorry momma!
I never meant to hurt you!
I never meant to make you cry; but tonight
I'm cleanin out my closet

Ha! I got some skeletons in my closet
and I don't know if no one knows it
So before they thrown me inside my coffin and close it
I'ma expose it; I'll take you back to '73
before I ever had a multi-platinum sellin CD
I was a baby, maybe I was just a couple of months
My faggot father must have had his panties up in a bunch
cause he split, I wonder if he even kissed me goodbye
No I don't on second thought I just fuckin wished he would die
I look at Hailie, and I couldn't picture leavin her side
Even if I hated Kim, I grit my teeth and I'd try
to make it work with her at least for Hailie's sake
I maybe made some mistakes
but I'm only human, but I'm man enough to face them today
What I did was stupid, no doubt it was dumb
But the smartest shit I did was take the bullets outta that gun
Cuz I'da killed him; shit I woulda shot Kim and them both
It's my life, I'd like to welcome y'all to "The Eminem Show"

I'm sorry momma!
I never meant to hurt you!
I never meant to make you cry; but tonight
I'm cleanin out my closet (one more time)
I said I'm sorry momma!
I never meant to hurt you!
I never meant to make you cry; but tonight
I'm cleanin out my closet

Now I would never diss my own momma just to get recognition
Take a second to listen for who you think this record is dissin
But put yourself in my position; just try to envision
witnessin your momma poppin pre>

I got the album the other day and it's good, very good.
The guy writes some devastating lyrics.

Yeah clearly Eminem writes & raps out of some deep hurt & pain. Hurt & pain I can kinda relate to, having been abused primarily by my own mother as well.

Devastating lyrics, for sure...
