Sleep-deprived, I take a nap
Wake up in an open casket
At my own funeral, but I’m not dead yet
I sit up, to no one's surprise, they knew I was alive
I begin screaming, “I’m not dead!”
My father says I was gonna die anyway, so why wait
I try walking out, try to escape
But you can’t walk out on your death date
Loved ones hold me down and close my box
Buried before my grandmother without my consent
