Correct Text

People think walls separate us.

But they also protect us.

You know, it's gonna be hard getting up of the wall.

You sure that you want to do this?

Go, go, go, go go!

Those people out there kept us in a cage for two hundred years.

That is not someone I want to engage with.

You have nothing to worry about, you're safe now.


Your arrival is the most exciting event some of us have ever known.

– What is going on here? – They're shutting us down.

Chicago will be erased.

Everyone we know

will die.

You were right all along.

We have to leave right now.

– Where are you going? – Home.

This isn't us against us. This is us against the people on the other side of that wall.

They're trying to destroy us.

– Where are you going? – We're saving the city.

Shoot her down.

Pull up!
