Cause what you say is what you say
Sometimes what you mean is two different things
Depending on your mood if it swings

from Eminem (Ft. Dr. Dre) – Say What You Say Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

What one says can be differently interpreted by people depending on their humor or mental health state.

It’s not a secret that your mental state determines your perception of the world, including the words you see on it.
Because of that, a word spoken can have two or more different meanings. At the rap game, we often call it double entendre. Some rappers managed to make lyrics with triple entendres and also quadruple entendres.

And Eminem knows that pretty well. He’s known for his lyrical abilities, such as making lots of double entendres like this one and sending subliminal messages to other people on his songs, as he states at this line on ‘Till I Collapse.
