Track Name: Livin' a Lie
Head out west down Roosevelt Road
where the kids on the corner sell rocks and blows.
"Hey white boy, what you need today?"
give me three blows and I'm on my way.
Head downtown on a green line train
looking for spike to put in my brain
four dollars gets a pack of ten
and I bang it in the bathroom and I'm off again.

I'm livin' a lie oh I'm livin' big damn lie
getting real low and I'm calling it high,
living a big damn lie.

Walk around town with the pin-needle eyes
itching and scratching like I got a bug bite.
People looking at me like what a strange guy,
he must be drunk, stupid or high.
Start to sweat and I start to ache
almost time to take my break.
I need another thing just to finish my day
so I'm back on the train and I'm off again

I'm livin' a lie oh I'm livin' big damn lie
getting real low and I'm calling it high,
living a big damn lie.

I don't know where I been, or where I'm going.
Doesn't matter if it's raining, or if it's snowing.
All I know is I got mine
and I ain't bound for wasting no more time.

I'm livin' a lie oh I'm livin' big damn lie
getting real low and I'm calling it high,
living a big damn lie.

Whoa oh I'm a livin'
Whoa oh I'm a livin'
Whoa oh I'm a livin'
Whoa oh I'm a livin' a lie
Getting real low and I'm calling it high
Livin' a big damn lie

8 Mile on Fire
8 Mile on Fire
The boys in blue just laid the wire, They're burnin' down the old empire
8 Mile on Fire

7 Mile on the run
7 Mile on the run
Them corner boys are havin' fun, gettin' wild swingin' guns
7 Mile on the run

6 Mile closing in
6 Mile Closing in
You tell 'um where, we'll tell 'um when, bring the women bring the men
6 Mile closing in.

8 Mile on Fire

The boys in blue just laid the wire, They're burnin' down the old empire

Track Name: Leave My Boy Alone
You can tell by the sound of his voice.
He don't think he has a choice.
And it doesn't matter what I say,
He just crawls to you when you're away.
But I'm here to make a stand, to save the heart of a man.

Oh Girl, Leave my boy alone
He's falling apart, he's gotta come home

You tell him that I'm bad news
but I'd never leave my boy with a bruise
You tell him that I'm no friend
And that you'll be with him until the end
But I'm doing all I can, to save the heart of a friend

Oh Girl, Leave my boy alone
He's falling apart, he's gotta come home
Oh Girl, let the young man go
You're breaking his heart. and he's growing old.

solo

Oh Girl, Leave my boy alone
He's falling apart, he's gotta come home
Oh Girl, let the young man go
You're breaking his heart. and he's growing old.

And when he leaves you, just let him go
You know that he needs you,
so when his world comes down, and his nights are long

Oh Girl, leave my boy alone
Leave my boy alone
Oh girl, Leave my boy alone
Oh girl, leave my boy alone.
