Cover of Radiohead Song

Her green plastic watering can

for her 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 itslef...it wears her out

She lives with a broken man

a cracked polystyrene 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


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 could just turn and run...and it wears me out


If I could be who you wanted all the time
