You’re feeling your heart beating inside your chest
Your head pounding harder and harder
Your heart is racing faster and faster
As you reach for a glass of water.

You’re starting to sweat, feeling diaphoretic
Your first thought is to get back home
Everyone’s talking, talking at once
You wish they would leave you alone.

You don’t know what’s happening
You wonder if, you are about to die
Are you having a heart attack?
You’re losing the vision in both of your eyes.

The end is near, this is it
The day of remorse and regret
Your time has clearly run out on you
Are you facing the ultimate, death?

EMS comes rolling in
With blankets and tanks of O2
You are so weak and so helpless now
There’s nothing you could possibly do.
