run..
and never turn away..
drive on
until everything is clear..
home..
is safe no more..
crippled by the arrow..
hide..
so you can tell the truth..
of the horrors..
they have done..

rest my angel..
no need to worry..
you have survived..
tell us what has happened..
to the ones..
that were left behind..

something went wrong..
just before the day breaks..
all was good..
till the sky whistled..
loud..
several times at once..
as if the horizon..
was angry..
crept upon our skin..
flintching into reaction..
boom..
they broke the earth around us..
here and there the shots rang out..

what did you do..

what did i do..
we were givin an hour..
that went in a second..
screams..
from those dying..
still left at your trail..
running..
away from the tale..
those i knew..
torn apart..
as the ground they lay on..
lying on the emptyness..
they layed them in..

..wisdom comes from the better choices of stupidity..
..curiosity is above all the best teacher..
