Taken from the Vorugal fight, this was one of my favorite Scanlan songs to work on.  This is my take on Sam's cover of Eminem's Lose Yourself that Scanlan performed while summoning Yenk the Goristro.  The lyrics can be found here, the Youtube video can be found here, and the mp3 can be found here

Lose Yourself (Grog's Spaghetti)

If you had
One scroll
Or one opportunity
To steal a Goristro from the abyss
In one moment
Would you capture it
Or just let it slip?


All right, Scanlan, I know that your palms are sweaty, 

your knees are weak, your arms heavy. 

There’s cologne on your tunic, Grog’s spaghetti.

You're nervous, but on the surface you look calm and ready
To call fiends, but you can't go forgettin'
How the spell sounds, the snow cloud grows so loud
You open your mouth, and the words just come out
You're focused now, everybody's throwin' down
The clocks run out, times up, over, blaow!
Snap back to reality, oh there's a Goristro

Can't see me through the snow, nope
He's so mad, but he won't see me that easy, no
He won't have it, he knows I brought him to the cold
It don't matter, he's a dope, one slow jam and we're bros
He's so stacked and he knows, he can't go back to his hellish home, that's when its
Attack the white dragon, yo, this whole rhapsody
He better go capture this moment and hope it don't gnash him

You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better read that fuckin' scroll
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime you better

This fiend's escaping, through this hole that is gaping
This battle's mine for the taking
Makes me sing, as we move toward a, new world order
A normal life is borin', but super barddom's close to post mortem
It only grows harder, Vorugal grows colder

He blows us all over, our foes and friends on him

Icicle breath flows he's known as the cold proper

Lonely roads, God only knows, I've grown farther from home, I'm no father
I scry but I barely know my own daughter
But hold your nose 'cause here goes the cold water

Casino woes, when I go, I'm sold product 

They moved on to the next schmo who knows zero bout fusaka

So the soap opera is told and unfolds, I suppose it's old partna, but the beat goes on
Da da dumb da dumb da da


No more games, I'm a change what's on this page
Tear this motherfuckin' roof off like I used Grog's rage
I was playin' in the beginnin', the mood all changed
I been chewed up and spit out and booed off stage
But I kept rhymin' and stepwritin' the next cipher
Best believe we're gonna deceive the high wyvern
All the pain inside amplified by the
Fact that I can't get by with my nine to
Five and I can't provide the right type of
Life for my family 'cause man, these God damn dragons inspire violence
And its no play, there's no playwright writin
This is my life and these times are so hard


And it's getting even harder tryin' to reconnect with my seed, plus

Teeter totter caught up bein' a father and a fearless bard a

Vex and Vax'ildan a drama screamin' on too much

For me to want to say in one spot, another day of monotony's

Gotten me to the point, I'm like a snail I've got

To formulate a plot fore I end up impaled or shot
Success is my only motherfuckin' option, failure's not
Kaylee, I love you, but this playa's got to go, I cannot grow old in this siphon's plot
So here I go is my shot
Feet fail me not 'cause maybe the only opportunity that I got

You can do anything you set a rhyme to, man
