Every day my metal friend
Shakes my bed at 6am (Hello!)
Then the shiny serving clones
Run in with my telephones

Talking fast I make a deal
Buy the fake and sell what's real
Ah, what's this pain here in my chest?
Maybe I should take a rest

They send the heart police
To put you under, cardiac arrest
And as they drag you through the door
They tell you that you've failed the test

Living in the ...

Living in the plastic age
Looking only half my age
Hello doctor lift my face
I wish my skin could stand the pace

In my bed I read my mind
Remember how the mice were blind
I watch them fighting in their cage
Could this be the plastic age?

They send the heart police
To put you under cardiac arrest
And as they drag you through the door
They tell you that you've failed the test

Living in the
Plastic age
Plastic age
Plastic age

They send the heart police
To put you under cardiac arrest
And as they drag you through the door
They tell you that you've failed the test

Living in the...

Plastic age
Plastic age
Plastic age
