I think it went wandering off down yonder
And stumbled onto Jeff VanVonderen
Cause I need an interventionist to intervene between me and this monster
And save me from myself and all this conflict
Eminem needed someone to step in and separate him from this monster, much like a drug addict needs to be kept away from the drug, for his own sake. Fighting the monster or otherwise going head-to-head against it would mean destroying himself since this monster is a part of him.
Fortunately, he found someone to intervene. Jeff VanVonderen is an author, motivational speaker, former pastor, and interventionist who is best known for his appearances on A&E reality show Intervention.
