Yeah, look

If I were to rap about the crap that's out
That's the route you probably want me to take
Cos your just dying to know what I think
And my take on some other bitches
If I was to say somethin' bout' Paul Wall...

    This is a classic example of a song fight between eminem and "his demons" (drugs), the first verse talks all about how people to expect him to rap on about his opinion on other rappers buit not all of his songs are based on bagging out everyone, at the end of the first verse eminem says. The mirror grows lips and whispers ome nearer. The second verse is a call and response between eminem and a monster-ish voice symbolising the his demons that appears in his bedside mirror. The mirror demon is convincing eminem to turn back to drugs the demon uses lines like "im here to rebuild you" saying your nothing as good now as you were with drugs, drugs make you who you are. eminem tells the demon he beat him (got rid of his drug using ways) in the line "but I had you beat" then the demon responds saying "no...i was playing possum,remember? I let you watch your little girls blossm. The 3rd verse starts as the deamon makes crods cheer and says "shady you hear that? they are screaming for you, I can bring your carrer back" eminem responds saying but I don't want it back. demon trys to get dr dre on his side and em has dre on the phone and dre backs up the demon saying "slim I gotta tlk to ya, I dunno it just seems like ever since you been off ya drugs ya became a lot softer" after this eminem punches the mirror that the demon is in and the demon says "im not in the mirror I'm inside you, let me guide you" em says "fuck you die you son of a bitch" puts a gun to his head and say bye bye. Shoots himself in the head and says "okay I'm still alive" demon- "so am I to, you can't kill a spirit even if you try to" the demon goes on explaining how drugs complete marshall and then it is clear to the listeners of the song that the chorus saying "my darling, I don't ever wanna leave you my darling, you and me were meant to be together my darling" isn't about a person it's about drugs.

    Its all about the illuminati.. "check 123 check check 123 check 123" actually means 666, and he talks about how he sold his soul, and that he wants out. Just like 2pac, lil wayne, kayne west, jay z, and rhianna.. They all sold there souls to the devil for money and fame. You prolly think I'm crazy, but look it up. Look up "I feel like dying backwards" by lil wayne, or "umbrella" by Rhianna. watch the music video played backwards, and you can find the subliminal message.

    For those who do not understand this is eminem having an "internal" conversation with his alter ego slim shady is almost a continuation of the song when in gone , when he supposedly kills the slim shady.

    It’s very clear and obvious the ‘Demon’ and voice he hears is the inner demon that is his addiction speaking... People saying it’s about Satan/Devil/Illuminati are just foolish... Listen to what Dre says to him on the track regarding his comparison to when he was using drugs to how he is now. The line.; ‘I had you beat’ in the 2nd verse. This is clearly referencing beating his addiction. I understand how listeners could view it as a demonic spirit within him about the Illuminati..., but for real, anyone who has ever struggled with drug or alcohol addiction personally or witnessed it consume a loved friend or family member, could totally relate to this track! And remember, Em, unlike a majority of likewise addicts, wouldn’t have the financial strain or need to commit crime impacting on his drug habits. So the mental/spiritual side would be a big factor in beating his addiction. Think about it people!!?

    I thought this was a song interpertation not a flat earth community convention. I mean come the fuck on, satan? Illuminati? Have you completely lost your fucking minds? Half pf you can't even speak english, let alone complete sentences. No wonder you find it so easy to mistake a song about drug abuse for a satanic worship song.
    So go to a shrink, learn some english, and listen to the song fully as a sane, english-speaking person.

    Lol I can tell you what he is talking about because I understand lol he didn't sell his soul? Really come on now? Satan makes people rich but not by worshipping him lol come on now! This is a mix of drugs and Satan and some people or alot define it a illness. He and I couldn't explain this shit but just put it into lyrics that some of you just wouldn't get. Eminem obviously believes in god and got promises great things to those with his kind of soul. Listen to the lyrics and most of you wouldn't probably be able to handle that reality that we lived and still do. It's a gift and only gangster's can handle it. He's good at his music and its real shit. Stop saying he sold his soul he made the right decision not to and that's why he fucking Eminem/shady sexy man lol

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    This song was an extra soundtrack for Eminem's sixth album Relapse.
    "The evil side of Slim Shady" Sings to Eminem about his angry, deranged, drug-addicted ego. "The evil Slim Shady" which can also be known as Eminem's conscience aka The voice inside his head is trying to convince him to go back to his old ways and do drugs again which was stated in verse two:
    "I had you beat"
    "No I was just playing possum, remember? I let you watch your little girls blossom I gave you enough time, your soul's mine I'm takin' it back"
    and the chorus:
    "My darling, I don't ever want you to leave me, my darling
    You and me were meant to be together my darling
    And if I cannot have you no one can, you're my darling
    Cause I possess your soul, your mind, your heart and your body
    I don't ever want you to leave me, my darling
    You and me were meant to be together my darling
    And if I cannot have you no one can, you're my darling
    Cause I possess your soul, your mind, your heart and your body" You may think that Eminem talking about a person but he's not he's talking about the drugs.

    Well on the Relapse album it's Marshall and all those pills, it's his addiction talking to him. He probably means breaking his relapse cycle by getting him back on drugs so there's no relapse after he is on drugs again. I think the song is about his life being ruined by his addiction, and him feeling tempted to get back on drugs again. Because he used to perform and record a lot while he was high. Which is why the "demon" says he could bring his career back.

    The weird thing is if he is arguing with his alter ego shady, why would shady (alter ego) call Eminem shady, and if it is drug addiction who is the devil, why would drug addiction tell Eminem he(drug addiction) can help him break the cycle of drug addiction and rehab

    Need i remind you, Eminem did break the drug addiction cycle with the help of the demon?

    I think he is fighting his alter ego (slim shady) who is the i dont give a fuck marshall who does drugs. Slim shady is talking to marshall about how drugs made him who he is today and that he can rebuild him. The song starts out with marshall snoring to symbolize how he is tired of all of his demons (drugs) his demons are also slim shady. His demon reminds him that he sold his sole to show business and their is no way out. Slim tries to get dr.dre on his side by calling him and getting him to talk him back into drugs. But thats my opinion to really find out ask eminem
