Wrap yourself in the linen fabric
That is the life you own
Feel it's warmth flow through your veins
All the while seeking out refuge

Pathways form between these souls
An ocean full of tar 
The closest you shall receive
It crosses out the masses

Yet under these thin shingles,
Solid tree remains
And the concrete blocks outside these walls
Can very well keep you tame

Take to your throne
On which you have dominance
And sit there in wonderment
As electromagnetic waves pierce your iris

Shout in solitude
There is no shame inside your kingdom
Grow from your Pygmy shell
But don't be so loud

So settle down child
You've attested your wars
However in these large walls you're not alone
In fact you may call this place your home
