Some people don't see it 'til the medic trying to make they pupils dilate

from Asher Roth (Ft. GLC, Phil Ade & Thurz) – Charlie Chaplin Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

When you’re dead, your pupils no longer dilate. To see that you’re still alive, sometimes paramedics will shine a light in your eyes.

In reference to the last line, some people never find their true calling until it’s too late and they’re already dead.
