Every day my metal friend
Then the shiny serving clones

Buy the fake and sell whats real
Maybe I should take a rest
They send the heart police to put you under, Cardiac arrest
They tell you that you've failed the test
Living in the
Looking only half my age
I wish my skin could stand the pace
In the bed I read my mind
I watch them fighting in their cage

and as they drag you the door

Plastic age
Plastic age

and as they drag you the door

Plastic age
