It's no secret that Eminem has long had a fascination with serial killers; he's name-dropped Jeffrey Dahmer, Norman Bates, and others on different songs through the years. For the blacked-out carnage that is "3 a.m.," he tips his hat to Silence of the Lambs' Buffalo Bill (the crazy babble about lotion and hoses in the bridge is based on dialog from the movie). We follow Slim's horny madman as he does gross stuff like jerk off to Hannah Montana and "kiss the naked mannequin man again" before going totally 7:30 towards the end of the second stanza when he starts rhyming the first, middle, and last words of various lines. The inspired perversity doesn't stop there: "Last night was a blast/I can't quite remember when I had/That much fun off a half-pint of the Jack/My last Vic and a half/A Fleshlight of Kim Kardashian's ass." But it's not all fun, drugs, and masturbatory toys, as the lunatic wakes up totally nude in McDonald's—covered in blood. If that isn't creepy enough for you, the evil whispering towards the end should do the trick.
