Slept in… Left Behind!

Stephen the Levite – Slept In

I heard the alarm, snooze button, drool on my arm
it’s time wake up, I’m gonna be…wait, something feels wrong
it’s dead calm, yo the kids must be in bed still sleepin’,
strange, turn my head, wait my wife’s gone?
I guess I’ll have to wake the kid’s up
reach for the remote control and put on my slippers as I get up
maybe she went to the store, she’ll be back in minute I’m sure
turn on the TV flip it to channel four
I leave the room and break a left at the hallway
the floor creaks under my feet and a crayon breaks
I look down and I see a picture of me
it’s a stick figure with “Daddy” written in blue underneath
my little girl is so sweet
both of the kids take after their mother, I know they all love me
maybe I’ll go to church with ’em this week
I know they’d like that, it might even be worth it to miss sleep
the door squeaks as I enter the room
“rise and shine, it’s time to get up and get ready for school!”
hold up, I must be buggin’ or somethin’
either I’m dreamin’ or the kids are missin’ from their bunk beds
that doesn’t make no sense, what’s goin’ on?
wait, stay calm, maybe they both went with their mom
I don’t get it, I’m beginnin’ to worry a little bit
they didn’t leave a note or nothin’ plus I feel a little sick
I’m sure it’s all under control
let me just make sure they took the van as opposed to the Volvo
as I gaze out the window
I’m frightened and amazed to find that the both of the cars are visible
is that my alarm? Forgot, I hit the snooze
back to the room to turn it off, somethin’ on the news
seems urgent, apparently people have disappeared
all over the world and whole planet’s in fear
It’s a joke right? every channel the same story
it’s only a nightmare, I’ll wake up in the morning
it’s not true, it can’t be, it seems kinda like
that thing my wife was tryin’ to explain to me the other night
I think she called it the rapture
she said Christ was comin’ back like a thief in the night to snatch up
all of those who believe in the Son of God
and put their faith in the work that He completed on the cross
something like that, I don’t quite remember all of it
but I’m startin’ to think it makes the most sense of all this
I’ve gotta find that Bible she use to read
maybe it can give me all of the information I need
’cause, I see now that my wife was tryin’ to warn,
but it’s my fault for dissin’ and not listenin’ before
so now I’m glad that she spoke up
’cause now the minute I thought I was sleepin’ was when I really woke up…


Two men will be in the field; one will be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. But know this, that if the good man of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him and in an hour that he is not aware of, and shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Matthew 24:40-51
