Eminem feat. Rihanna – “Monster”

Click inside to read the lyrics to the new song…

[Hook: Rihanna]Annotate
I’m friends with the monster that’s under my bed
Get along with the voices inside of my head
You’re trying to save me, stop holding your breath
And you think I’m crazy, yeah, you think I’m crazy

[Verse 1: Eminem]
I wanted the fame, but not the cover of Newsweek
Oh well, guess beggars can’t be choosey
Wanted to receive attention for my music
Wanted to be left alone in public, excuse me
Been wanting my cake, and eat it too, and wanting it both ways
Fame made me a balloon cause my ego inflated
When I blew; see, 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 (wooh!)
Hit the lottery, oh wee
With what I gave up to get was bittersweet
With this like winning a huge meet
Ironic cause I think I’m getting so huge I need a shrink
I’m beginning to lose sleep: one sheep, two sheep
Going cuckoo and cooky as Kool Keith
But I’m actually weirder than you think
Cause I’m


[Bridge: Rihanna]
Well, that’s nothing
Well, that’s nothing

[Verse 2: Eminem]
No, 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 all could be over tomorrow
So I keep conjuring, sometimes I wonder where these thoughts spawn from
(Yeah, ponder it, do you want this?
No wonder you losing your mind, the way it wanders)
I think you’ve been wandering 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 is killing me and I can’t conquer it
My OCD is conking me in the head
Keep knocking, nobody’s home, I’m sleepwalking
I’m just relaying what the voice in my head’s saying
Don’t shoot the messenger, I’m just friends with the

[Hook + Bridge]

[Verse 3: Eminem]
Call me crazy, but I have this vision
One day that I walk amongst you a regular civilian
But until then drums get killed and I’m coming straight at
Emcees, blood get spilled and I
Take it back to the days that I get on a Dre track
Give every kid who got played at
Pumped up feeling and shit to say back
To the kids who played ‘em
I ain’t here to save the fucking children
But if one kid out of a hundred million
Who are going through a struggle feels and then relates that’s great
It’s payback, Russell Wilson falling way back
In the draft, turn nothing into something, still can make that
Straw into gold chump, I will spin Rumpelstiltskin in a haystack
Maybe I need a straight jacket, face facts
I am nuts for real, but I’m okay with that
It’s nothing, I’m still friends with the

    Come on Eminem, you’re better then this

  • Juliet

    At this point I don’t think eminem needs to collaborate with acts such as rihanna or skylar, seriously, he’s better than this. If you’re going to have a collaboration, find someone talented at least.

  • http://mhm! ASIANS CAN READ MINDS!!!!!!!!!

    They can hear, and see what you’re visually thinking. This is the absolute complete truth!!!!!
    The reason a lot of Asians have completely expressionless faces is so they don’t accidentally show facial expressions when people think things they don’t like, find funny, astonishing, etc, and Asians segregate so they’re not nearly as susceptible to that happening.
    Asians also segregate, and are untalkative to avoid accidentally saying things that are similar to what people are thinking and going to say.
    Try thinking, and visually picturing things that are as wild as you can when you are around Asians, and look for Asians who give people dirty/particular looks for what appears to be for completely no reason. it works when you try enough!!!

  • Nina

    I don’t like it, they’re trying too hard

    It’s getting kind of lame to have a female singer in every one of his songs now.

  • http://twitter trex

    It’s amazing to me how you can say someone’s not talented considering the fact that you aren’t even as successful as her.. so that’s kind of pathetic of you.

  • amanda

    @trex Are you on her paycheck? Don’t think being successful means you’re talented. Btw, you’re just as pathetic for coming over here.

  • Nice

    Its already on #2 US Itunes Charts. So its already a success single. I love that song and I love Rihanna.

  • Sarah

    @amanda: So how do you think she got where she is today and probably is just chillin with her money, not thinking about you, while you are criticising her on a website?
