Plastic Fantastic Lyrics

Decline and Fall - Kevin Mills          Return

Christmas in America
The kids are asleep
Dreaming dreams of America
Where life is cheap
This restless shifting earth is gonna suck you in one day, little baby
come looking for the angels, but they've all flown away
And you can have, you can have fine clothes
Take you where you wanna go go go
And you can own a real fine home
Drowning in suburbia, your'e gone
Freeway killers and lost souls
Gang war in the barrio
Child whores of the golden state
Dying slowly on a piece of tape
Utopia can't wait
Just look away, look away
Its late in the day
For all these cars of gunmetal grey and gold
Driving home before they get old
Look away, look away
Decline and fall
Decline and fall
Decline and fall
Decline and fall
I'm the king of Beverly Hills
And I don't feel no ills
She's my queen, the blondest girl you've ever seen
See, shes the one who needs the pills
Perfect woman, perfect wife
Smiles under the surgeons knife
And she can have, she can have fine clothes
Take you where she wants to go go go
And she can own a real fine home
Drowning in suburbia, she's gone
All the palm trees and the ocean breeze
Eat all the food that you can eat
Keep all the things that you can keep
That you will never need
Decline and fall
Decline and fall
Decline and fall
Decline and fall

House of Cards - Kevin Mills          Return

You drag this ball and chain
Across the desert plain
You build a house of cards
Around a loveless heart
Wild country in your head
Gone dead river bed
In the dust you cry cry cry
There's no water in the skies
Bone dry, built on sand
A house of cards that will never stand
The doors crash open and the flood comes in
And the flood takes everything
So speak the language slow
Beg some foreign money
Your'e growing up on dog food in the land of milk and honey
shoot for the moon, live a life out of a window
In your room, all alone
You watch the sku, watch the storm
Coming down on your house of cards
Drink another drink
And I spill my stories
But when i wake up
I forget my stories
Magnificent in failure
Resplendent in decay
Tall tales of the land and the sea, and the tides that tore away my house of cards
Its so hot, so hot in here
I can't sleep with you so near
And the time goes by so slow
And the night peels away like gasoline
Shoot for the moon, live a life out of a window
In your room, all alone
You watch the sky, watch the storm
Coming down, coming down on your house of cards

Time and Space - D.Greening          Return

Seems like yesterday, we just flew away
I have done my best
Against the odds and then
From time to time your'e gone
It makes me feel so strong
And when I get that way, all my dreams fade away
In the time it takes to love me - I love you
Time and space won't keep us down
I see your face and my feet don't touch the ground
We could fall in love, we could change the world
We could see each other floating through the girl
And every move i make takes me back to you
And when we're sure it's over
The light comes shining through
In the time it takes to love me - I love you
Time and space won't keep us down
I see your face and my feet don't touch the ground
Listen to me now, the stars are all asleep
Shoot me through the clouds, 'cause you still hold the key
To open up my heart
That's when the screaming starts
I heard she's leaving town, so I won't stick around
In the time it takes to love me - I love you
Time and space won't keep us down
I see your face and my feet don't touch the ground
Time and space won't keep us down
I see your face and my feet don't touch the ground
We can fall in love, we can change the world
We can see each other floating through the girl
Time and space can't keep us down
Can't keep us down

Every Little Word - D.Greening          Return

I smell temptation
The forest breathe
You tear your heart out
For what you believe
I saw you shining out on the horizon
Out of reach
You knew I was lying
Every little word carries on the wind
Every little word was true
I admit
I played with fire
You bought the water
I was untrue
With god's only daughter
Swim in the ocean
Follow the moon
Waiting for lovers to fill up my room
Every little word carries on the wind
Every little word was true
I admit, yeah
I spend your money
Took my soul away
I tasted tear drops
You wiped them away
We don't have to scream
We don't have to fight
Last chance left us
Too high and dry
Every little word carries on the wind
Every little word was true
I admit

Slowdown - James Mitchell          Return

When your'e twenty-five so alive
All the world comes crashing down on you
Taking that freeway, oh river of no return
Take that sbow-bound highway, river of no return
Yeah, you got to slow down
With my tears held back
Yeah, you were the crazy one
With my tears held back
Yeah, you got to slow down, can't hold my tears back
Yeah, you were the crazy one
With my tears held back...fly so high we touch the sky
Fly so high we kiss the sky
Fly too high, and I feel part of me die
Fly too high, never wonder why...yeah, you got to slow down
With my tears held back
Yeah, you were the crazy one
With my tears held back
Yeah, you got to slow down, can't hold my tears back
Yeah, you were the crazy one
With my tears held back
And I, Oh I, yeah, I believe in spirits in the sky, i believe in harmony
I believe in stars up above
I believe in one true love...the next day in a dream
Saw you cross the street
You said hello, how are you and how does it feel to be so complete
Said there's one law for the lion
He just don't care at all
One law for the lion, he just don't scare at all
And I said
Yeah, you got to slow down
With my tears held back
Yeah, you were the crazy one
With my tears held back
Yeah, you got to slow down, can't hold my tears back
Yeah, you got to slow down
With my tears held back
Got to slow down

Highwire - D.Greening          Return

Well here comes heaven
Walkking down the street again
Gonna pick you up
Knock you off your feet again
Liking a living nightmnare in paradise
Like a fist out of hell
With a grip like a vice
On the highwire, you can't reach me
You can't bring me down
You can't reach me
Caught a glimpse of your sad sad face
Somewhere special
Do you know the place
Where every fairytale turns real
When you start to feel
The way that I feel
On the highwire, you can't reach me
You can't bring me down
You can't reach me
You can't bring me down
Stretching out your hand, reaching out for friendliness
Staring out the window, thinking what a dirty mess
A tidal wave in time and space
When you can't fall it's such a waste
The walls of doubt are falling down
Running deep with the music loud
Flying high, don't look down
It's been so long since we walked in the moonlight
On the highwire, you can't reach me
You can't bring me down
You can't reach me
You can't bring me down
You can't reach me
You can't bring me down
Baby I'm wired

Slide - D.Greening          Return

There's a world outside
It's not hard to find
Your'e too young to know
The red river flows
It's another world
Filled with dreams untold
We can make it there
Freinds are everywhere
And all the stars look down
But there's nobody around
Come on, slide...behind a secret door
It's what your searching for
You can lose yourself
Inside a dream of wealth
All the stars look down
But there's nobody around
Come on, slide, slide
Come on, slide
Into my eyes
Into the fire, into my lies
Head lights beam
Can't figure out
It's a crazy dream
Your'e mad at the world
There's blood on your hands
We're alone at midnight
I'm a man
Come on, slide
Slide
And all the stars look down
But there's nobody around
So come on, slide
Slide
Come on, slide
Slide

Day One - Kevin Mills          Return

I drew a curtain across your face
Put the lid on this case
I'll never look at you the same
This is waht I tell myself
Every day and every night
I rip that curtain down
But nothing there has changed
It's still day one
I put two feet on the ground
And walk to the end of the line
We take what we can get
By way of killing time
I drew a circle aruond your face
I should have looked some other place
And never looked at it again
This is what i tell myself
Every day and every night
I try to rub that circle out
But nothing comes away
It's still day one
I put two feet on the ground
And walk to the end of the line
We take what we can get
By way of killing time
What can I tell you
I'm at a dead end
She is a best friend
Says I'm at a loose end
You know where you stand when it's hand over hand
But there's no beginning
And there is no end to a circle
It's day one, year zero
And I'm in love with nothing again
I sit here on the platform
And I nurse my drunken brain
And the train pulls in the station
And the train pulls out again
It's day one
It's day one
It's still day one

Choosing You - Rocco Barker          Return

Where did it all begin
Don't know yesterday, can't think of tomorrow
You can't choose me, cause I've chosen you
And all I ever had is gone and lost, thats true
I learn to forget all I can
Walk, talk, stand like I am
When I am choosing you
You can't choose me, cause I've chosen you
No, you can't choose me, cause I've chosen you
Yeah, I choose you

Stupid On The Steet - Nick Marsh          Return

Gotta tell ya, I don't know what, where or when
Just gotta tell ya, I don't wanna have to tell you again
Informed sources said we've been doing this and that
Just gotta tell ya, they just don't know where it's at
You see were only
Stupid people, stupid in the first degree
who could be more stupider than you or me
Stupid on the street, dude...dig it
I couldn't learn to break dance or do the funky body pop
Talk about the sidewalk, don't you ever stop
Long on attitude
Yeah, we've been acting indiscreet
Gone got stupid on the street, dude
Your electric shoes and your groovy untouchable style
You either got it or you don't
Terminal delinquent, can tell by the way you never smile
Aw, what's all this?
I just can't seem to move
I think I love ya, I got nothing to prove
Honey, life's a beach
And were so stupid on the street
Stupid on the street
Stupid on the street
Let's go, let's go, baby let's go - stupid on the street
Sometimes you get to saying stuff you really don't feel
Sometimes baby, your'e just totally unreal
It's not what you say, it's the way that you say it
It's not what you play, it's a game that you're playing, uh-huh
we've been acting indiscreet
Gone got stupid on the street, dude
Because everybody's getting up while we're still getting down
Everybody's getting up while we're still getting down
What's that you're saying - lifes a beach?!?
Stupid on the street...dig it
Stupid on the street
Aww, lookitcha...let's go

Avenue - Rocco Barker          Return

I'm coming
Around the bend
Been a long time on the avenue
Lovers and losers chained to my heart
Standing here waiting for you
Waiting here just for you
To pass through
You can't wear me out
I'm at a hard place and a wall
Rolling down the avenue
Just rolling down the avenue
Ble velvet dreams, a neighbour for a friend
Flying high in the city, looks good again
Standing here waiting for you
Waiting here just for you
To pass through
Motel man with a lizard hand
Honky tonk dan and an old tin can
Ice cream on Sunday
Lots more on Monday
All lovers are fools and I'm gonna fool ya
Sidewalk hurrican blowing over me
Flower-bomb blow out down on redondo beach
Baby I want to keep you
Walk, talk and sleep you
I think I'll keep you on the avenue
Down on the avenue

Plastic Fantastic - Nick Marsh          Return

We love tinsel town
Plastic fantastic
I can feel it when you talk
See it when you walk that way
I'm gonna swim
Cross the ocean in the black of night
You can never see the depths, never reach the distant shore
Plastic fantastic
I really think it's cool
Children will be children
I don't wanna go to school
Plastic fantastic, do ya believe it
Plastic fantastic, something you just gotta see
I'm a sc-fi baby of the twenty-first century
Plastic fantastic, do ya believe it
Plastic fantastic, don't really need it
Lookee here right now
In my neighbourhood
Yeah got to do something, it's got to be something good
Burn tiger burn
Run just as fast as you can
We're gonna build you a concrete jungle
'Cause we don't really understand
It's a shame
Plastic fantastic, do ya believe it
Plastic fantastic, don't really need it
I know you from another world
Your'e everywhere in general and no place inparticular
I can feel it when you talk that way
Plastic fantastic
I really think it's cool
Burn tiger burn
Run just as fast as you can
Plastic fantastic, something you just gotta see
I'm a sc-fi baby of the twenty-first century
That's me
Plastic fantastic
I can feel it when you talk
See it when you walk that way
Bye-bye
