Eminem: 3 A.M Meaning
Song Released: 2009
3 A.M Lyrics
There is no escaping....
There's no place to hide....
You scream "Someone save me"
But they don't pay you no mind...
You're walkin' down a horror corridor
It's almost 4 in the morning and you're in...

I think this song is about Marshall trying to get help at a rehab facility..k while attempting to get clean he slips and does his drugs that he always talking about how they always have a hold on him..well I think he over does it to the point that he blacks out and goes slim shady on innocent ppl and kills them!! Waking up at 3 a.m is just a sign of the evil that he has caused himself and others! Evil rises

So he says evil rise in the background, BIG DEAL! He is feeding into this whole illumati thing and making fun of the folks who actually believe. Remember Stimulate and the backwards messages he had going there back when the "Satanic messages in songs" shit was big?

i think he is talking about killing people that dont matter to him coz` the people that matter to him are killing him inside so if you think about it he feels like the devil (3.am) because of what he has done in the past and it is all coming back to him now and he is feeling all the anger he was back then and he wants to do the same again and i personally dont blame him because so much has happend to him before he desrves to right to flip out an kill every1 :)) i love him and always do xxxxx

He is showing how he gets possessed. He goes on a killing rampage at devil's hour and doesn't understand what he did because it wasn't him killing people. He was possessed. His eyes aren't even his. As an MK-ULTRA victim, the mind is completely unstable. Look up MK-ULTRA.

Just one word Illuminati 3AM represents ... well for satanists it means the hour that Jesus died on the cross so the "evil" is much more powerfull in that moment ... "Evil riseee/Evil riseee".

its not about life.its about that hour the devil works harder.look on a clock with arms 3am looks like a cross upside down.by tha way it is the opposite of the time Jesus died.

I still cant understand whe he says evil rise at the end of the song....

this song is loosely based on well known serial killers, all Eminem did was interpret it in his own way some of the lyrics do relate to the album relapse as he did have a drug problem so he twisted the two genres together and made a fusion of a serial killer drug addict its also means that drugs make you do things you wouldn't normally do and also the most infamous serial killers he based this on were under the influence when they killed.

The song wasn't made to/will not make you a killer, shut up everyone who thinks that, IT'S JUST MUSIC

It's about mental disorders. He wanted to make a song that explored the mind. It has nothing to do with the devil, or anything like that. And btw, twiztidjuggalo95... That beef was squashed a long fucking time ago. Let it the fuck alone.

I personally think it's about people who love to kill with a passion, my fave part of the song is when he goes "she puts the lotion in the bucket, she puts it on the skin, or else it gets the hose again" even though i'm a juggalo, i still love Eminem. Peace :)

Eminem explained: "In that song I relapse in a rehab facility or something like it. I just black out and f--king kill everybody. I was trying to create a triple entendre with the [album] title: relapsing literally, going back to the old days – just blacking the f--k out and killing everyone. I wanted to paint a picture for the listener, to make them feel like they are in the story and part of it as each line progresses."

this song is not about him being high or drugged up. he has always been fascinated by how serial killer's minds work. he wanted to explore their world and see how they see things.
anonymous Jan 19th 2011, 06:13 report
If you really listen closely he whispers at the end evil rise EVIL RISE.

this song is about murders & serial killers & all that because eminem said in an interveiw of this song that he's just fasinated by the way their mind's work. lol
It's about him getting so drugged up, but it's not enough. He goes to a hospital, to get more medication, and blacks out, and kills everyone. When he comes to, he notices what he did, so he takes more, to forget about. Then when he comes to then, he goes home, and notices the "bodies, laying all over the floor." But he doesn't care, cause he's crazy like that. Eminem is my favorite rapper! :) :)
