In a rusted world
She sits and waits

They tiptoe around her
Afraid she might break
Knowing full well
That her life's at stake
They find out her secret
And throw her in a room

To escape her gloom
She still remains silent
A twisted smile on her face
She's been here before,
She remembers this place
Left with only her thoughts
She just sits there and rocks
A broken porcelain girl
In her nice, padded box

"Intertwine, Inter-relate and Interconnect"
* This was the quote that inspired me to write it down. I just couldn't stand the idea of a future without something like this being recorded! A world where people can say stuff like that and NOT have it recorded is a world I do not want to be a part of.
