Stronger than I was.

I fucking love this song from the first listening. Is a very touching track. He sings here for the most part, but it sounds great maybe because of the voice overlays (I doubt he will ever make this live).

I've read is written from the perspective of Kim, except the 3rd verse.
In the land of the killers, a sinner's mind is a sanctum.

UHHHHHHHHHH


haha, the Uhhhhh part never annoyed me until you guys started with that joke...now it makes me smile. I do agree the little Uh's at the end are a bit........ repetitive.

Ah, fuck the haters, Charlotte get it. The song is great.

I love it but that verse could have been so much better.

A lot of the links/pics I've posted in the last year or so, if they're dead, there is a probability that I have archived it on Archive.today.

It's good... It grew on me too. It's from the ones I like the least though...

I've loved it since first listen. It's different, emotional, from the heart, very personal, and the "Get back up then Uhhhh" part, actually gives me goosebumps. Its like hes saying Knock me down and I'll get up and go apeshit.

I had a bad drug addiction about 7 years ago and EVERYONE counted me down. Told me I would die a junkie, I was worthless, I'd never get clean etc. In other words, I was down and out. Instead of letting it get to me, I took that motivation to get myself back on my feet.....and somehow the UHHHH perfectly describes the emotions I felt when I was proving people wrong. It's like...vindication i guess. It's like saying "fuck you, I was down but i'm NEVER OUT!"

Nice song but the album mood definitely changes temporarily; especially coming right after Brainless

Yeah, this is the only reason I didnt like the song at first. The transition is too sharp. But its a pretty good song for me now.

I actually really like the song especially its structure being a departure from what he usually does. I guess i don't listen to it much because its one of the filler tracks. It is good but does not add much to the album and so many of them just make it sound bloated.

Why people take for granted it was written in Kim's perspective ? Did he say that?

This verse makes me doubt it :

A beautiful face is all that you had
Cause on the inside you're ugly and mad.

At first , I didn't know how to take the song. It's so...different. Especially after Brainless sounded like classic Shady.

In all honesty though, it's a pretty well written song(especially the singing verses) and that kind of surprises me. I mean, he's technically elite as a rapper and writing this type of song is a completely different animal entirely. It's funny, I get the impression he could write/produce a pretty good adult pop album. He should really sign a talented singer to his label and just co-write and produce that shit. It could be epic.

If the song was angry and had more rapping in it, it'd be so much better doe :shifty:

this!

Firstly, i don't see any need to see it from a particular person's perspective as it is a broad song, with a broad subject supposed to be relatable to a broad audience. In contrast to Haile's song which was highly personal.

Good song, I like the singing. I wouldn't skip it most times if the rap verse were more interesting.
