White Walls with Empty Seats

A world within a world,
Fortunes yet to be found
Days you enjoy without liability,
If only it were that easy
The freedom of men dwindles
Leave this place and be free,
At the cost of remaining lonely

The smiles fade and give way
Emotions disappear under the pressure
You may be right about ignorance
If only I could pretend,
Blissfully I would sleep at night
Maybe these four white walls
Could become my sanctuary
