Ceiling Balloons Pt. 5: a brave soul

You could escape, run away

never let her hurt you again

but you fight, but you stay

even though you’ll never win


You defend him, protect him

arms of sanction, no abandonment

for you know where he’s been

you’re not broken though you’re bent


You don’t believe me when I say

you’re an angel, but you are

keeping your hatred at bay

push the evils to afar


You say you want to leave

but as long as he’s confined

you’ll stay there and believe

that the blind can lead the blind


Though I promise you enough

you will succeed your goal

as long as you stay committed

because you’re a brave soul.
