I'm friends with the monster That's under my bed

[Chorus - Rihanna]

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 (crazy)

[Eminem - Verse 1]

I wanted the fame, but not the cover of Newsweek  Oh well, guess beggers can't be choosey  Wanted to receive attention for my music  Wanted to be left alone, public excuse me  Been wanting my cake, And eat it too  Wanting it both ways  Fame may be 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  Hit the lottery (oh wee)  With what I gave up to get was bittersweet  It was like winning a huge meet  Ironic 'cause I think I'm getting so big I need a shrink  I'm beginning to lose sleep: one sheep, two sheep  Going cucko and cuckier as Kool Keith  But I'm actually weirder than you think  Cause I'm...

[Chorus]

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

Well, that's nothing  oh oh oh oh  Well, that's nothing  oh oh oh oh

[Eminem Verse 2]

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 conjuring  Sometimes I wonder where these thoughts spawn from  (Yeah, ponder it, do you wonder there's no wonder you're losing your mind the way you're brought up?)  I think you've been wandering off down yonder and stumbled upon Jeff VanVonderen  Cause I needed an interventionist to intervene between me and this monster  And save me from myself and all this conflict  Cause the very things that I love is killing me and I can't conquer it  My OCD is clonking me in the head  Keep knocking, nobody's home, I'm sleepwalking  I'm just relaying what the voice of my head saying  Don't shoot the messenger, I'm just friends with the...

[Chorus]

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

Well, that's nothing  Well, that's nothing

[Eminem - Verse 3]

Call me crazy, but I had this vision  One day that, I'd walk amongst you regular civilians  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 the feeling  and shit that 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 relates that's great  It's payback, Russell Wilson falling way back  In the draft, turn nothing into something still, can make that  Straw in the gold chump I will spend  Rumpelstiltskin in a hay stack  Maybe I need a straightjacket, face facts  I am nuts for real, but I'm okay with that  It's nothing, I'm still friends with a...

[Bridge]

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

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

Well, that's nothing
