The Faygo-imbibing pair, Detroit's own Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope, allude to Poe's work in this track, which describes a man haunted by the eye of an elderly man in the neighborhood.

The haunting eye in the song is introduced in the following lines:

I ring the doorbell, the door creeps open / And there it was starin' and scopin' / The man's left eye, red, big, and drippin' / I was trippin'. "Ahh, seeya!" / I ran home. I couldn't stop thinking / About his eyeball winking and blinking

The reaction to the disturbing eye is much like that of the narrator in Poe's short. The Wicked Clowns write:

I wanna lift up the eyelid and kick it in. / He's gotta die. I want his eye buried in my backyard. / It ain't hard, I'm killin' Old Evil Eye!
