[Verse 1 – Rip]: Lord, I’m the first to confess, that my life’s an utter mess I’m struggling with this sin still expecting you to bless, my.. Life with many things, like a wife and shiny things Instead I’m…siphoning my dreams, but there’s only One Vaccine Watch them censor me. Comatosed from my own palliative remedies: Smoking, drinking sex, pop a xan to calm extremities My heart is poisoned with the lies, deception and deceit Can barely enjoy my life, hear my confession and defeat This…visceral feeling is so miserable heal me. Got me in my room kneeling as I’m begging and pleading To the ceiling like.. Code blue I’m barely breathing, man, I need a revival, When I think I need a rush, man, just get me a Bible. Stick my dermis with a hypodermic, this is urgent I’m allergic to these serpents, man, I need a surgeon On the surface I look certain but my heart is hurtin’ Turn my worst into a sermon this my purpose, serve it Even when my back is turnin’ my cardiovascular needs a catheter Matter fact I need a whole transfusion along with planet earth Sepsis in the blood, boutta go in shock! This is startling, Jesus fills my arteries, every part of me
[Chorus 1 x 2- J Ruthie Carroll] Someone please revive me, on the verge of dying I’m in need of an IV, it’s The Only Thing gonna save me now This world is suffocating, they can’t see… No, I can’t breathe
[Verse 2 – Rip]
Lord, we’re down here suffocating, about to flatline But it ain’t just me who need an IV, flip on the news at 9 We’re all infected, acting…young and reckless like we got a death wish Man, this world is helpless, desperate, wrong and selfish We feel the birthing pangs like…south side Chicago gang fights Another mother’s son just got rushed to the hospital Mercy what she needs and she pleads for her prodigal Other side of town it’s another hate crime its a race against time before someone draws a 9 from their waistline but wait I hate my Desensitized state I…have no pulse on my EKG line (man!) My stripper friend coming through messed up on meth again Try to rescue me but she can’t be my heroine While she’s addicted to that and I’m addicted to sex What you think happens next every time we connect? I feel the need to confess and the need to inject Every capillary with The One Who never rejects every single defect Time to cut off the cancer! Racial tempers are flaring, end times trumpets are blaring I know you hear it don’t be blind among the spiritually barren All this political unrest, subliminal infe-stations across the nations pump the poison we ingest Glamorizing sin blur the line between The Truth and lies And when we see defeat, man it’s Him we scrutinize My heart is wicked I’m convicted I’m in need of a Savior, Lord we need You now so I truly hope You hear my prayer!
[Chorus 2 x2] Jesus please revive me, Lord my soul is dying Your Word is like my IV, It’s The Only thing gonna save me now This world is suffocating, they can’t see… No, I can’t breathe
