LYRICS: The Bends

Planet Telex

The Bends

High and Dry

Fake Plastic Trees

Her green plastic watering can
For her 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

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 just turn and run
And it wears me out

If I could be who you wanted all the time


(nice dream)


My Iron Lung

Bullet Proof...I Wish I Was

Black Star


Street Spirit (Fade Out)
