Ode to detroit lyrics, Eminem


There is a resilience that rises from somewhere deep within your streets.
You can't define it, but you can feel it.
You can feel it overflowing from the people who call you home.
The people who are always proud to declare, 'I'm from Detroit'.
You took our country from it's infancy, into industry.
And your name still carries with it the idea of a nation built on steel, muscle and sweat.
You became the city that carried the country.
The city, like the sport, is built on dreams.
People who would drive to you, driven to excel.
Who know nothing is accomplished without hardwork, without sacrifice.
When you hurt, we hurt.
Your streets witness our struggle.
Your bricks are our rage through the emptiness of each house shuttered, of each factory closed.
We've lived through the ups and the downs.
But we remain, Detroit.
We can never turn our backs on you Detroit, because we are you.
My home.
The home of Motown, Cadillac and Joe Louis.
Through all this, we cannot be defeated, because we have never been defeated.
You've built us, you've moved us, you've shaped us.
Sometimes down, but never out.
Take strength in us, your people.
Stay up Detroit.
