No Escape


Sean Silverman

What must they be thinking 
when they act the way they do 
and cause so much destruction 
without even a clue 

of who they are affecting 
the lives that will be changed 
the children with no parents 
the men who were engaged 

They'll say they had their reasons 
it needed to be done 
spare me the excuses 
you'll need them when you're gone 

If only you could feel 
the pain that's being felt 
so, did you prove your point? 
are you pleased with the results? 

Well, now you must consider 
exactly what you've done 
this, will not go unanswered 
there is nowhere to run 

But if you kept on running 
until the day you died 
that day you will be punished 
for all those who have cried.
