Eminem – Darkness

Darkness Lyrics:

I don’t wanna be alone i don’t wanna be
I don’t wanna be alone in the darkness
I don’t wanna be alone in the darkness
I don’t wanna be alone in the darkness anymore

Here i am alone again
Can’t get out of this hole i’m in
It’s like the walls are closin’ in
You can’t help me no one can
I can feel these curtains closin’ i go to open ’em
But something pulls ’em closed again
(hello darkness my old friend)

Feels like i’m loathing in las vegas
Haven’t got the vaguest why i’m so lost
But i’d make you this small wager
If i bet you i’ll be in tomorrow’s paper
Who would the odds favor?
I’m so much like my father

You would think that i knew him
I keep pacin’ this room valium then chase it with booze
One little taste it’ll do maybe i’ll take it and snooze
Then tear up the stage in a few
Fuck the colt 45 i’m a need somethin’ stronger
If i pop any caps it better be off of vodka
Round after round after round i’m getting’ loaded
That’s a lot of shots huh?


And i don’t wanna be alone in the darkness
I don’t wanna be alone in the darkness
I don’t wanna be alone in the darkness anymore

Now i’m starin’ at the room service menu off a benzo
I can hear the music continue to crescendo
I can see the whole fuckin’ venue from my window
That’s when you know you’re schizo
‘Cause i keep peakin’ out the curtain from the hotel
The music is so loud
But its almost as though i don’t hear no sound
I should get ready for the show now
Wait is this the whole crowd?
I thought this shit was sold out

But it’s only the opening act it’s early don’t over react
Then something told me relax
And just hope for the show to be packed
Don’t wanna hit the stage before they fill each row to the max
‘Cause that’d be totally wacked
You can’t murder a show nobody’s at
But what if nobody shows? Panic mode ’bout to snap and
Go motherfuckin’ wacko at any second
‘Bout to cancel the show just as fans below rush the entrance
Plan is a go to wreck shit cameras in all directions

The press is about to go ape shit bananas on all the networks
Commando with extra clips i got ammo for all the hecklers
I’m armed to the teeth
Another valium fall off the bed hit the ground and crawl to the dresser
Alcohol on my breath as i reach for the scope
I’m blackin’ out i’m all out of meds with them
Benzodiazepines gone now it’s just magazines sprawled out on the floor
Fuck the media i’m goin’ all out this is war
(hello darkness my old friend)


And i don’t wanna be alone in the darkness
I don’t wanna be alone in the darkness
I don’t wanna be alone in the darkness anymore


People start to show up time to start the show up
It’s 10:05 pm and the curtain starts to go up
And i’m already sweatin’
But i’m locked and loaded for rapid fire spittin’
For all the concert goers scopes for sniper vision
Surprise from out of nowhere as i slide the clip in
From inside the hotel leanin’ out the window

Going kaiser sosay finger on the trigger
But i’m a licensed owner with no prior convictions
So loss the sky’s the limit so my supplies infinite
Strapped like i’m a solider got ’em hopping over
Walls and climbing fences
Some of them john travolta staying alive by inches

Cops are knockin’ oh fuck thought i blocked the entrance
Guess show time is over no suicide note
Just a note for target distance
But if you’d like to know the reason why i did this
You’ll never find a motive
Truth is i have no idea i am just as
Stumped no signs of mental
Illness just tryin’ to show ya
The reason why we’re so fucked
‘Cause by the time its over
Won’t make the slightest difference
(hello darkness my old friend)

And i don’t wanna be alone in the darkness
I don’t wanna be alone in the darkness
I don’t wanna be alone in the darkness anymore
(hello darkness my old friend)
