Eminem’s ninth studio album Revival was highly anticipated before its release leak this week. Officially released Dec. 15, the LP was preluded by two singles: “Walk on Water” featuring Beyonce and “Untouchable.” Both tracks gave fans a pretty good idea of the vibe Revival would offer: a combination of killer beats and blunt honesty.

Following that notion, Revival‘s closing track “Arose” gives details into the time Em almost overdosed. For about four minutes, the rapper imagines what the last moments of his life could have been like had he actually died. He raps figuratively, saying goodbye to his daughters and other loved ones.

Then, he spells out the end:

“Just heard that nurse say, my liver and kidneys aren’t functioning/
Been flirtatious with death, skirt-chasing, I guess/
It’s arrivederci, same nurse, just heard say they’re unplugging me.”
