[Hook]
Soon as my flow starts, I compose art like the ghost of Mozart
Even though they all say that they're real, I know that most aren't
Boy you think you're clever, don't ya? Girl, you think you're so smart
Come with me to another side in a world so cold and so dark
A world so dark, a world so cold
A world where only some will go
But none return, when will they learn?
Where do they go? God only knows

[Verse 1]
Fe-fi-fo-fum, I think I smell the scent of a placenta
I enter Central Park, it's dark; it's Winter in December
I see my target, put my car in park and approach a tender
Young girl by the name of Brenda and I pretend to befriend her
Sit down beside her like a spider; "hi there girl, you mighta
Heard of me before, see whore, you're the kind of girl that I'd assault
And rape then figure 'why not try not to make your pussy wider?'
F*ck you with an umbrella, then open it up while the sh*t's inside ya
I'm the kinda guy that's mild but I might flip and get a little bit wilder
Impregnate a lesbian, yeah, now let's see her have triplets and I'll
Disintegrate them babies as soon as they're out her with formaldehyde
And cyanide. Girl you can try and hide, you can try to scream louder
No need for no gunpowder, that only takes all the fun outta
Murder and I'd rather go "vinn-vinn!" and now you see just how the
F*ck I do just what I do when I cut right through your scalp
Sh*t, wait a minute I mean skull, my knife seems dull, pull another one out

[Hook]

[Verse 2]
So dark and so cold, my friends don't know this other side of me
There's a monster inside of me, it's quite ugly and it frightens me
But they can't see what I can see, there's a vacancy in my tummy
It's making me play hide-and-seek, like Jason I'm so hungry
She's naked, see, no privacy but I can see she wants me
So patient, see, I try to be
But gee, why does she taunt me?
Pulls the drapes and she goes right to sleep
I creep right through the front, see
So blatantly but silently
Cause I know that she's sound sleep
"Who's waking me so violently and why's he on top of me?
He's raping me," she tries to scream, "Somebody please get him off me
He's taping me, he's biting me, he's laughing like it's funny"
She's scraping me, she's fighting me
She's scratching like some dumb freak
Escaping me, no dice, you see, I might just be Ted Bundy
Or Satan, gee what a sight to see, I'm dancing in my red panties
I'm crazy but it's all right with me, man life can be so empty
Stay away from me cause I'm dancing to quite a different drumbeat

[Hook]

[Eminem]
Better try to stay wide awake, or you might end up found dead by the lake
Soon as you lay me down to sleep it's your soul I'ma try to take
Pray for light of day right away, why do they try to fight today?
I must make them pay twice as much; might as well put the knife away
Now I use power tools, how bout now, are you in the shower?
Scour you for 6 hours til outage of power outlets
How did you figure out I was down in your basement, now you
Must've just heard the sound of my stomach growling from down there
Prowler, there's no one fouler; bound ya, that's how they found ya
Face down in the tub I drown ya with piles of downers around ya
Such nostalgia and power, such prowess, look how you cower
Jump out on you now like I was Jawa from f*cking Star Wars
Jabba the Hutt, beddy-bye-bye, beddy-bye-bye, it's time to die-die
Ought to not even bother to scream, it don't even matter
Amazing when grazing skin with these razor blades he waves at ya
Not your everyday Damien. Bathe me in holy water
Nothing like Son of Sam so please understand there's no gun in hand
Where's the thrill in the hunt, there's no fun in that, here I come with axe
Fun to act like lumberjack when I'm hacking em up with that
What was that? Dial 9-1-1, someone's coming in from the back

[Hook]
Soon as my flow starts, I compose art like the ghost of Mozart
Even though they all say that they're real, I know that most aren't
Boy you think you're clever, don't ya? Girl, you think you're so smart
Come with me to another side in a world so cold and so dark
A world so dark, a world so cold
A world where only some will go
But none return, when will they learn?
Where do they go? God only knows
