I Left Them

I left them all to die
Before the sun was high
I did not say goodbye
As I left them all to die

I left them all to die
No tear came from my eye
I let my joy then fly
As I left them all to die

I left them all to die
Here’s my reason why
Their chains I would defy
So I left them all to die

I left them all to die
My doubt, my pain, my lie
My freedom is now nigh
I’m glad I let them die
