But I'm only near it, man I need the pastor's service
I'm drowning cause I'm so tired of treading
So Lord when you get a second please
Rescue Me by Slaughterhouse (Ft. Skylar Grey) 1

He’s just near the church (since he only passed by it) ‘cause he couldn’t muster the will to get in. Although he does need the pastor’s service, because he’s so tired of his life path leading him nowhere (treading water is stationary swimming) that he can’t stay on the surface anymore.
Thus asking the Lord for a miracle (this dawg wanna be jesusin' and shit) to rescue him from drowning, as linked to the hook.

And spinal fluid is final, you won't get it back The Kids by Eminem

Modern medical technology still hasn’t figured out a perfect substitute for the natural spinal fluid. So once you lose it…it’s wheel chair or grave.

Actually, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is constantly produced and reabsorbed by your body. A typical adult replaces all of the CSF in his body several times every day. Also, it’s not terribly special to begin with — CSF is pretty much just purified blood plasma, which in turn is mostly just water.

I would've washed a pill down with a shot of my own spinal fluid Rescue Me by Slaughterhouse (Ft. Skylar Grey) 1

Ecstasy pills affect one’s spinal fluid (and spinal fluid is final, you won’t get it back). Washing his pill with that fluid depicts the reckless risks he was darkness-sunk in enough to take at the time.

Man I come from the roughest so if I come up in the spot
And you bugging I’m tellin you suckas watch, I’m a take off that fucking watch
And scratch a, bitch, I'll be on a nigga ear, scream Juggernaut
Juggernauts by Slaughterhouse (Ft. Eminem)

Ladies & gentlemen, extended double-entendre :

  • He originates from the roughest rap environement, so when his music comes up to the spot and you other rappers are bugged by its success, he’s telling you to watch and learn. After which he takes off his watch (as one would do as readying for a boxing fight) and scratches like a DJ before launching his track on your nigga ear, screaming JUGGERNAUT !

  • He’s rough by nature so if he climaxes in that girl’s spot, and you unsuccessful rappers are bugged ‘cause your level won’t permit you such, he’s telling you to…watch. Then he takes off his watch (before the act) and scratches (has sex with) that bitch. Whom we’ll assume is black since during the act, he’ll be on her nigga ear, screaming JUGGERNAUT !

Miscellaneous facts :

  • He skips the “a” vowel in “take off” to make it sound like “tic off” as in stopping the watch’s tic tac, stopping time. Goes with both entendres (Got you hyper-concentrated on his music, or girl climaxes, both give a time-stopping feeling).

  • Play on both “watch” meanings.

  • When a watch is scratched, you take it off.

  • His comrade also used a scratch metaphor in a previous verse. In the Slaughterhouse crew they like competing out each other’s verses to come up with the best lyrical shit.

Plus they frowning at my watch like my wrist stinks Swiss Francs (Remix) by Ryan Leslie (Ft. Booba)

The haters are looking at his watch, perhaps a gold Presidential Day Date Rolex, and making faces. They’re mad that he’s #winning.
Double meaning in the sens where they’re frowning (stressed) at his watch of'em through the fish tanks. One frowns when smelling stink (hence the watch/wrist stink wordplay).

French > Ils froncent les sourcils pendant que je les observe comme si mon poignet puait

Jeu de mot en anglais impossible à traduire en français.

“At my watch” peut signifier “pendant mon observation” et aussi “sur ma montre”. Les haineux se sentent stressés quand il les observe à travers le métaphorique aquarium, et froncent les sourcils avec frustration comme si son poignet puait (sa montre est sur le poignet, et on fronce les sourcils quand on sent un odeur qui pue).

I can see right through these haters #Fishtanks Swiss Francs (Remix) by Ryan Leslie (Ft. Booba)

Ryan is well aware of the well-wishers and people who smile in his face but talk behind his back. He is a good judge of character, and he sees through them as if they were literally transparent, like a fish tank.

French > Je peux clairement voir à travers ces haters, comme des aquariums

Il peut voir leurs intentions cachées aussi clairement que des poissons à travers la transparence d'un aquarium.
