  • Lyrics
  • The song's title refers to a character from the 1991 horror thriller Silence of the Lambs that Clarice Starling has to confer with Hannibal Lecter about. The lyrical content follows the storyline of the movie version fairly closely, as Slim Shady cuts and skins women and severs limbs.
  • Eminem previously referred to Silence of the Lambs on Relapse 's "3 A.M.," where he quotes from the film: "She puts the lotion in the bucket/ It puts the lotion on the skin/ Or else it gets the hose again."
