Running Away

Modern Day Rome
Running away 
From modern-day Rome 
My soul is knackered as I roam. 

Far from the city I do flee,  
But every place I seek 
Their eyes are on me. 

In this land where we once were free 
We live in a prison ever serene; 
    Serving corporations 
    Upon our knees, 
    They finance prisons 
    From sea to sea. 

I gesticulate for all to see, 
Serfdom's fate is where they’ll be: 
    Self-entitled ignorance 
        Blinds their means.
