Breathe in...step out...


The gate

a little bit of panic has set in
as the soldiers mount their horses
the frozen ground not ready to catch their fall
as the gate slowly lifts open

they set their boundaries one by one
based only the colour of their skin
but as we look down to our feet below
we see no lines drawn in pen

clear the gate
let the riders out
clear the gate
let the riders out

clean the slate
wash the colours out
clean the slate
watch the souls fly out

no one told you
to give in
no one helped you
to run away

clear the gate
clear the gate
