    I walk on water
    But I ain't no Jesus
    I walk on water
    But only when it freezes (fuck)

    Why are expectations so high?
    Is it the bar I set?
    My arms, I stretch, but I can't reach
    A far cry from it, or it's in my grasp, but as
    Soon as I grab, squeeze
    I lose my grip like the flyin' trapeze
    Into the dark I plummet, now the sky's blackening
    I know the mark's high, butter-
    flies rip apart my stomach
    Knowin' that no matter what bars I come with
    You're gonna harp, gripe, and
    That's a hard Vicodin to swallow,
    so I scrap these, As pressure increases like khakis
    I feel the ice cracking, because-

    I walk on water
    But I ain't no Jesus
    (It's the curse of the- it's the curse of the-)
    I walk on water (shit)
    But only when it freezes

    It's the curse of the standard
    That the first of the Mathers discs set
    Always in search of the verse that I haven't spit yet
    Will this step just be another misstep
    To tarnish whatever the legacy,
    love or respect, I've garnered?
    The rhyme has to be perfect, the delivery flawless
    And it always feels like I'm hittin' the mark
    'Til I go sit in the car, listen and pick it apart
    Like, "This shit is garbage!"
    God's given me all this,
    still I feel no different regardless
    Kids look to me as a god, this is retarded
    If only they knew, it's a facade and it's exhaustive
    And I try not to listen to nonsense
    But if you bitches are tryin' to strip me of my confidence
    Mission accomplished
    I'm not God-sent,
    Nas, Rakim, 'Pac, B.I.G., James Todd Smith, And I'm not Prince, so...

    I walk on water
    But I ain't no Jesus
    I walk on water
    But only when it freezes

    'Cause I'm only human, just like you
    Making my mistakes, oh if you only knew
    I don't think you should believe in me the way that you do
    'Cause I'm terrified to let you down, oh

    It's true, I'm a Rubik's-a beautiful mess
    At times juvenile, yes, I goof and I jest
    A flawed human, I guess
    But I'm doin' my best to not ruin your ex-
    pectations and meet 'em, but first
    The "Speedom" verse, now Big Sean
    He's goin' too fast, is he gonna shout or curse out his mom?
    There was a time I had the world by the balls, eatin' out my palm
    Every album song I was spazzin' the fuck out on
    And now I'm gettin' clowned and frowned on
    But the only one who's looking down on
    Me that matters now's Deshaun
    Am I lucky to be around this long?
    Begs the question though
    Especially after the methadone
    As yesterday fades and the Dresden home
    Is burnt to the ground, and all that's left of my house is lawn
    The crowds are gone
    And it's time to wash out the blonde
    Sales decline, the curtain's drawn
    They're closin' the set, I'm still pokin' my head from out behind
    And everyone who has doubt, remind
    Now take your best rhyme, outdo it, now do it a thousand times
    Now let 'em tell ya the world no longer cares
    or gives a fuck about your rhymes
    And as I grow outta site, outta mind, I might go outta mine
    'Cause how do I ever let this mic go without a fight
    When I made a fuckin' tightrope outta twine?
    But when I do fall from these heights though, I'll be fine
    I won't pout or cry or spiral down or whine
    But I'll decide if it's my final bow this time around, 'cause-

    I walk on water
    But I ain't no Jesus
    I walk on water
    But only when it freezes

    'Cause I'm only human, just like you
    I've been making my mistakes, oh if you only knew
    I don't think you should believe in me the way that you do
    'Cause I'm terrified to let you down, oh
    If I walked on water, I would drown

    'Cause I'm just a man
    But as long as I got a mic, I'm godlike
    So me and you are not alike
    Bitch, I wrote "Stan"
