She dropped the gun and started running down the corridor,
She found the exit to get out that department store.
She made full sprint when she hit the parking lot,
She didn't see police, not even any rent-a-cops.
Then she went across the street and went behind the Applebees,
And from there she could see those abandoned factories.
Figured there's a good place for her to hide away,
Knowing she could finally slide through the fire escape.
At this point it still felt like a dream,
In her head she could still hear the little kid's scream.
Leaning up against the dumpster to find some breath,
She could hear the sirens.
Now it's time to step, running through the alley way.
Now relentless, bobbing in between houses, jumping fences.
Only two more blocks 'til the overpass,
The adrenaline is rendering a panic attack.
Maybe she should go back and explain it all,
Maybe the best thing to do now is take that fall.
Ain't no way that they won't understand,
Daddy's little girl is never gonna hurt again.
She can't believe that she's having this dilemma
She's tryin' to find a reason that she shouldn't go surrender.
She's a kid and a first time offender,
Plus, he had it coming, hell is colder in December.
Decided she'd go make it to the picket ware house,
From there, she could try to get her head to clear out.
She needs a minute to sit and think,
Sometimes we reflect on these events and let them sink.
There's the building, it's empty.
She hopes to god that the fire escapes on the back loading dock.
The next chapter to the happy ever after,
wrapped her little fingers 'round the cold metal ladder.
Started climbing that's when she heard the officer,
"Millie, turn yourself in now, come on down from there!"
She tried to look over her shoulder,
Lost balance, fell four stories, it was over.
