The time has come...

I’ve been waiting…
For this moment to come.

Justice…
Has been finally done.

Yet still…
I’ve been made to feel guilty.

For the deed’s…
In which you have done.

Now your inside.
Now im on the run.

Inside looking out…
Outside looking in…

It’s sad to admit…
I still have empathy.

Still feeling sorry…
But where did it ever get me?

Your family….
Were partly to blame.

Who believed violence…
Was the answer to everything.

Now look where it’s got you!
In the lion’s den…

For refusing to change.
For being so stubborn.

I just hope for your sake…
You don’t make the same mistake.

Cause now your inside…
There’s no getting away!
