Fake Plastic Trees

A green plastic watering can For a fake chinese rubber plant In the fake plastic earth

That she bought from a rubber man In a town full of rubber plans To get rid of itself

It wears her out, it wears her out It wears her out, it wears her out

She lives with a broken man A cracked polystyrene man Who just crumbles and burns

He used to do surgery On girls in the eighties But gravity always wins

And it wears him out, it wears him out It wears him out, it wears him out

She looks like the real thing She tastes like the real thing My fake plastic love

But I can’t help the feeling I could blow through the ceiling If I just turn and run

And it wears me out, it wears me out It wears me out, it wears me out

And if I could be who you wanted If I could be who you wanted All the time, all the time
