There are times when you are completely addicted to a song , and I must confess I just love the concept behind this particular song , its basically about common man and woman , living in a plastic world , where everyone is so commercialised with no space for human feelings left ,then the singer sings that although He loves a girl and 'she feels like the real thing', that is with all the chemicals and cosmetics on her face , she'has lost her true beauty and just fake-plastic face is left which feels like real ....the singer talks about the fake plastic earth and his plastic faced love.. ...I just love this song ...and I'm damn sure when I get at 80 , I would still love this song... Although lyrics when simply read are not so appealing , but the singer just bursts the emotions out of this song with his pinching-voice...A must d-ownlaod for all u mp3 freeakss!
'Fake Plastic Love: Radiohead' (Try to listen to the Acoustic Version....I like that more..)
Her Green plastic watering can
For her fake chinese rubber plant
In her fake plastic earth.
That she bought from a rubber man
In a town full of rubber plans.
to get rid of itself.
And It Wears Her Out, it wears her outIt 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
For girls in the eighties
But gravity always wins.
And It Wears Him Out, it wears him outIt 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 outIt 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, ohhh... ohh...
