The Escape

Open your mind and begin to imagine
Living what you read happens
Eating rice from feces to manage
Life in a gulag and famine
Nuclear standoffs are irrelevant
Because your child’s a walking skeleton
You run halfway through China only to be repatriated to Hell again

You knew this
Still you tried to escape Kim’s State

They monitored your every movement
You knew this
Now your entire life was just to be an example through execution

Would you have done this again?
What would you have to lose –
Only freedom to win
You weren’t naive or confused
You only wanted in
on drama and pop music
Abundance of food
Your rights as a human
These protests and complaints of politicians…
Are laughable – you can live with opposition
Because you’re fed and been given
More freedom than you ever knew
This is the life you lose to escape to…
You tasted it as you made every move…
Now you’re in the stadium
waiting for them to execute you…
It’s all your life amounted to

Release your mind
But feel what you read happens
Life in gulags and famines…
