Lyrics

Happiness is Plastic © 2008 Kaplan

I bet you think you're pretty
smarter than us all
Still you're transfixed by the
notion of the mall
Your eyes light up like lightning,
the better half of the deal
You might as well take two or three
it's such a steal

Your coupon world is cutting up,
you better cash in now
Shake your head in disgust, sneer,
I can feel your growl
Your pity is second nature,
tell me what's your first?
Have you heard the latest gossip,
spread the dirt?

You have not beaten me yet, my friend
You have not beaten me yet

Happiness is plastic, man
I can’t believe how fast it recycles
Tragedy is fantastic, man
I watch it come and go in cycles

Your ankle bracelet glitters in the
blue autumnal sun
Your heels so high and thick,
I can't see how you run
Pantcuffed legs are belled,
make you look like such a freak
So scrawny and appalling,
what is it that you seek?

You have not beaten me yet, my friend
You have not beaten me yet
Happiness is plastic, man
I can’t believe how fast it recycles
Tragedy is fantastic, man
I watch it come and go in cycles

You have not beaten me yet, my friend
You have not beaten me yet

Happiness is plastic, man
I can’t believe how fast it recycles
Tragedy is fantastic, man
I watch it come and go in cycles
