Plastic World(Mickís)†††††††† © J.Birch 1997.

 

Itís a plastic world††† Itís a plastic world

And freedom unfurls her sails

Itís a plastic world††† Itís a plastic world

One moreís dead and another one wails

Itís a world away†† a world away††

Itís Americaís moon and Russia fails

Itís a world away†† a world away††

And the dolls hide their collective tails

 

Australiaís yacht buys a bendy mast

For ten thousand dollars while children fast

Born to die but their mothers wonít cry

And you say ďSo why should I?Ē

 

A plastic flower in the gutter lies

Along side one more of those older guys

For you itís just another sad crime

For him Ďthe end of the lineí

 

Weíll talk about justice weíll talk about truth

We teach it in our schools to our youth

But can we make it fair for all man soon?

Did we put a man on the moon?

 

I live in a land that is run by greed

Where we all spend by whim and not by need

Yes a place where politicians scream

More tax feed the machine

 

And how can we drive expensive cars

While in the other lane the third world starves?

How can we just smoke ourselves a deal?

While millions canít find a meal?

 

Itís a plastic world††† Itís a plastic world

And freedom unfurls her sails

Itís a plastic world††† Itís a plastic world

One moreís dead and another one wails

Itís a world away†† a world away††

Itís Americaís moon and Russia fails

Itís a world away†† a world away††

And the dolls hide their collective tails

 

While youíre thinking bout that plastic flower

A little boy somewhere has got one more hour

And you justify the cost of your plastic flower

By saying ďwe deserve what is oursĒ

 

Well I live in a land where millions say

ďIsnít it a shameĒwhile millions more die in pain

Instead of saying ďWe should shareĒ

ďWith others what is rightfully theirs.Ē

Well) I wear bracestoo skiny too fat

Too much of this& not enough of that

I carry scarstoo short too tall†††††††††

I put pridebefore the fall

 

Yer) & I'm afraid†† of saying somethin' silly

I'm afraid††† of meetin new girls

I'm afraid†† my outside†† isn't up to scratch

But as some people say ...

 

"It is'nt the oyster†† its the pearls"

††††††††

Well) I have times†† when things aren't the best

Too much of no†† & not enough of yes

I carry loads†† upon my back

I'm ashamed†† of what I lack

 

Yer) & I'm afraid†† of saying somethin' silly

I'm afraid††† of meetin new girls

I'm afraid†† my outside†† isn't up to scratch

I donít care†† if I'm not in shape†††††††††

I donít care†† how much money I make

††††††††††

Pretty people†† donít grow on trees

When I look in the mirror†† I dont criticize

I think of this"We Are All HumansIn Alien's Eyes"
