The Monster Lyrics (ft. Rihanna)

[Intro: Rihanna]
I'm friends with the monster that's under my bed
Get along with the voices inside of my head
You 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, public excuse me
Been wanting my cake, I need it too, wanting it both ways
Fame may be a balloon cause my ego inflated
When I blew seep 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 – “ooh 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 huge 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...

I'm friends with a monster that's under my bed
Get a long with the voices inside of my head
You trying to save me, stop holding your breath
And you think I'm crazy, yeah, you think I'm crazy
Well, that's not fair...
Well, that's not fair...

[Verse 2: Eminem]
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
...so I keep conjuring
Sometimes I wonder where these thoughts spawn from
(Yeah, I 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...
'Cause I needed an intervention in this 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... 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...


[Verse 3: Eminem]
Call me crazy, but I had this vision
One day that I'd walk amongst you regular civilians
But until then drums get killed 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 gat
Pumped the villain and shit that say back
To the kids who played 'em
I ain't here to save the f*cking 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... falling way back
In the draft, turn nothing into something, still can make that
Straw in the gold chump I will spend
...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

Instead of hiding from the pain and regrets in your life you should better face them and accept them to go on with your life. People might think you are crazy, never listen to them. Don't be afraid of your ego or subliminal existence, just listen to them and make them accept your choices. That is what life is about and also this song.

my meaning to this song is the things that you love are just like the monster under your bed and they keep telling you things and you go along with it. they tell themselves that you are small inside and they own you

I think you're trapped inside yourself, the monster being your brain, keeping you bottled up in your thoughts, which is good, because you're not listening not following the rest. You're just being yourself. So really the monster is you, and you're friends, you're listening to yourself rather than following society.
