The Monster - Eminem 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 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, 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 (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 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…

[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 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 all could 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 on Jeff VanVonderen
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 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 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 villian and sh*t 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, 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

About
I am Shawn Park, a co-founder of Ego, a UI guru, a K-pop maniac, and a critical narcissist. I love my UI designs, which I call an embodiment of myself, but at the same time I don't hesitate to tear them down. The moment I hate the most is when I scrap my design that I have worked on for weeks, but it eventually becomes the moment I love when it opens up to a whole new world of design. (which might be scrapped some time later to pave way for others.) Aside from design, I spend my time with friends, listening to music and singing, and contemplating.
UI design is my hobby and my passion. As such, I have been making websites for over a decade - outside of class or work - just for fun. In particular, I am the lead web designer for K-pop convention 2013 held at UC Berkeley hosted by K-popular (www.kpopcon.com) and CET 2.0, virtual entrepreneurship center currently being developed by Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology at UC Berkeley. My expertise is in HTML 5, CSS 3, and Javascript. I have also taken various positions in journalism, including a vice president position in Seoul Foreign Language High School Union Newspaper and a founder of an online essay forum Essay Playground.
I am currently in charge of UI design and business strategy for Ego, an internet-based startup started by me and my two other friends in UC Berkeley. In a nutshell, Ego is a personalized news community that allows users to receive and discuss information related to their interests. We started working on Ego with just a scribble in our notebooks because of our sheer pain in keeping up with our interests. After doing some initial work, we started a student-run course (DeCal) in which 10 students collaborated on making Ego. Ego is now a full-fledged web application with most of the features implemented. For more information, please visit http://www.egodecal.com
