Let me let myself out to the corner
After that, we’ll talk about what you want to
Just give me my time to be here
Let me keep my hired frontier
Clean of what you scourge my home with
Free of all your synthesized myths
We’re orphans, we’re apart
That makes it good enough. But it’s sad.
It’s a long walk.
It’s always slow that second,
When I lace up;
When I make that last preparation before I go,
And leave without what I came to leave.

The author's comments:
Letting anything go is a desicion, and this is about really wanting to be free of something, and then how hard it is to really let go.
