Why am I so differently wired? Am I a martian?
What kind of twisted experiment am I involved in?
Cause I don't belong in this world

from Eminem – Legacy Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Growing up, Eminem felt like he did not fit in at all with the other kids. He would see them all acting similarly and then, compared to himself, he was completely different. Thus, he wondered if he was actually from this world or part of some scientific experiment. Alternatively, he could be questioning existence itself as an experiment, like he was put on Earth because of a game being played by the Gods.

“Martian” also sounds very similar to “Marshall”.
