Radiohead – Fake Plastic Trees

lyrics

The green plastic watering can
For a fake chinese rubberplant
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 for girls in the eighties
But gravity always wins
And it wears him out
And it wears him out
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 just turned and ran
And it wears me out
It wears me out
It wears me out
If I could be who you wanted
if I could be who you wanted all the time

notes: mentioned as being about Canary Wharf [London]. phil: “some of my favourite lyrics on the bends – gravity always wins – what a line”. ed: this took a while to record only because it was hard to better thom just singing it with an acoustic guitar. amazing lyrics”. jonny: “my favourite lyrics from the bends. writing the string parts was my studio highlight, in a megalomaniac kinda way”. colin: “er…, deep?” thom: “the product of a joke that wasn’t really a joke and a very lonely drunken evening and well, a breakdown of sorts”.
