Father I see the light is on
The grim reaper is asleep
Got his hands on all your people
It don't feel right, know I know something's wrong
We chased a lot, we're holding on
Father someone's on the phone
And this doctor's in my ear sounding scared
And now my mind is going crazy, yo what's going on?
What's going on?

And he says, "Maybe you should sit down for this
You should sit down for this, we have your family here
Maybe you should sit down"
But I don't wanna sit down for this
I'm not prepared, what's going on?
What's going on?

Father I can't take it, heart is palpitating
Tryna tell myself I know you're in control
Tryna tell myself I know you got me Lord
And my family in your hands
But I'm only just a man and I break down
Father can you save 'em
Father can you take my broken pieces, make a way
Oh God, can you make a way, but it's your will
And I'm out to take this 9 to 5 and make it real
So real, so real
Father can you save 'em?
Can you change the way this happened?
Can you work a miracle?
Yeah I know you can but will you turn it around?
I'm on my cellphone now

Doctor's saying "Maybe you should sit down for this
You should sit down for this, we have your family here
Maybe you should sit down"
I don't wanna sit down for this
I don't wanna, I don't wanna, I don't wanna sit down

This is an emergency
