I see some of SZ symptoms in the lyrics of that song !!! what do you think ? what’s the story with alter egos and famous figures ! I guess some day being crazy will be cool
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 holdin’ your breath
And you think I’m crazy, yeah, you think I’m crazy
I always thought that slim shady is the shade man that Eminem sees, and now he talks about voices and a monster under the bed !
that’s an explanation I found about the song on a website:
( For children (and some adults) their biggest fear is monsters under their bed. Instead of being afraid, Rihanna has befriended “the monster under her bed,” because she can relate to it.
Em’s “monster” is Slim Shady, Eminem’s alter ego. Shady represents rebellion, drug use, and violence. The video illustrates how he has to deal with Shady. In the music video, you can see that he walks up to the imprisoned Shady and is handed some rhymes, but Marshall stays strong, despite the fact that the “Slim Shady” persona effectively got him where he is today in the rap game.)
I have to add that one of the lyrics lines was that he have OCD as well:
My OCD is conking me in the head, keep knockin’
And I fond an article saying he was bipolar
