Fake roses in a boxAlways ready to be shippedBut never ready for the tripBeautiful and fragileFake roses in a boxWither against the windI hate to see us break apartInto nothing but particles
They can't be happy When people just put them down They do shed their tears They feel pain and sorrow They just show no emotion or fear

These are my church shoes,
