Please stay here, I'll be back soon.
Soil shifts beneath my shoes.
Please don't fight me, I want a truce.
I'll be back sometime today.
At that point, I'll have things to say.
Please be sure I'm in decay
Before you put my body away.
Just slow down, let me take a rest.
This may be my last request.
I'm only here at your behest.
Something to say, get it off my chest.
This is what I must confess:
For many a long year there's been too much stress.
Truth I'll say and nothing less.
Feel I'm getting the full court press.
Weight of the world comin' down on me
I beg of you, give me the chance to flee.
If you're so blind that you cannot see,
I suggest you pray to the Almighty.
