Eminem - The Monster


Artist: Eminem
Album: The Marshall Mathers Lp 2
Title: The Monster

feat. Rihanna

[Chorus: Rihanna]
I'm friends with the monster that's under my bed
Get along with the voices inside of my head
You're tryin to save me, stop holdin your breath
And you think I'm crazy, yeah you think I'm crazy

I wanted the fame but not the cover of Newsweek
Oh well, guess beggers can't be choosy
Wanted to receive attention for my music
Wanted to be left alone in public, excuse me
Been wantin my cake and eat it too, I'm wantin it both ways
Fame made me a balloon, cause my ego inflated
When I blew seep and it was confusing
Cause all I wanted to do is be, the Bruce Lee, of loose leaf
Abused ink, used it as a tool when I blew steam
OOH! Hit the lottery, ooh-wee
But with what I gave up to get was bittersweet
It was like winnin a huge meet
Ironic cause I think I'm gettin so huge I need a shrink
I'm beginnin to lose sleep - one sheep, two sheep
Goin cuckoo and cooky as Kool Keith
But I'm actually weirder than you think
Cause I'm


[Interlude: Rihanna]
Well that's not fair!
Oh-ohh oh-ohh, oh-ohh oh-ohh
Oh-ohh oh-ohh, ohh-ohhh-ohhh
Well that's not fair!
Oh-ohh oh-ohh, oh-ohh oh-ohh
Oh-ohh oh-ohh, oh-ohh oh-ohh

Now I ain't much of a poet
But I know somebody once told me to seize the moment and don't squander it
Cause you never know when it could all be over tomorrow so I keep conjurin
Sometimes I wonder where these thoughts spawn from
"Yeah ponder it, and do you wonder?
It's no wonder you're losin your mind the way you're brought up"
Yo-dada-ley-hee-hoo! I think you've been wanderin
off down yonder and stumbled onto Jeff VanVonderen!
Cause I need an interventionist
to intervene between me and this monster
And save me from myself, and all this conflict
Cause the very thing that I love's killin me and I can't conquer it
My OCD's conkin me in the head
Keep knockin, nobody's home, I'm sleep-walkin
I'm just relayin what the voice in my head's sayin
Don't shoot the messenger, I'm just friends with the



Call me crazy but I have this vision
one day that I'll walk amongst you a regular civilian
But until then drums get killed and I'm
comin straight at MC's, blood gets spilled and I
take it back to the days that, I get on a Dre track
Give every kid who got played that
pumped the villian and shit to say back, to the kids who played 'em
I ain't here to save the fuckin children
But if one kid, out of a hundred million
who are goin through a struggle feels it and relates, that's great!
It's payback, Russell Wilson
fallin way back in the draft, turn nothin into somethin
Still can make that straw into gold chump, I will spin
Rumpelstiltskin in a haystack
Maybe I need a straitjacket, face facts
I am nuts for real, but I'm okay with that!
It's nothin, I'm still friends with the

[Chorus] - 2X
