I'm not ready to leave, it's too scary to die
I'll have to be carried inside the cemetery and buried alive
Horror movie tropes were important to Eminem when this song came out; during concerts, he would have someone onstage dressed as a mummy (one time it was Dustin Hoffman). He even features a mummy on the album artwork to The Slim Shady LP.
Even though this is mostly a joking line about how he viewed death differently than others, he is actually trying to get a point across. Some people thought them Em didn’t care about his life when he was coming up, so he clarified that he still valued his life in a way that is still humorous. He addressed this same belief later in the album, on the track “Still Don’t Give a Fuck”.
