A green plastic watering can
For a fake chinese rubber plant
In fake plastic earth
That she bought from a rubber man
In a town full of rubber plants
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 polysterene man
Who just crumbles and burns
He used to do surgery
For girls in the eighties
But gravity always wins

And it wears him out
It wears him out
It wears hm out
It wears him out
It wears......

She looks like the real thing
She tastes like the real thing
My fake plastic love
And 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
All...
