Choose For Us

Choose For Us

written by: Aaron McMillan



North, South, East, West,
Every room the same, every turn leads the same way,

Fixing our faults will not come by leaving,
You’re changing the wrong foundation,

Hiding away in your four walls,
Will only imprison you further,

There is no more room for complete failure,
This here is your last chance,

Take us with you but leave him behind,
No judgement will come from this,

If you were a ship you would eventually go down,
Release the anchor, it’s caught in the rocks,

Don’t let us fight when the end is clear,
Let us start again from getting away from here.
