lyrics

You can lead a horse to water
But you cannot make it drink.
You can educate your brother
But you cannot make him think.
You can gather every penny
You find lying on the ground.
But you're sure to miss what's coming
When you're always looking down.

Get your name on the evening news
'Til everybody wants to be like you.
Take it all 'til you get your fill.
Get your face on the dollar bill.

Shiny Plastic People
Shiny Plastic People
Never quite as real as you'd like them to be.

You can vie for every virtue
In your quest to be adored.
Let the truth of love elude you
'Til you're broken on the floor.
You could be worshipped by the masses.
Decree with every whim.
Until you're staring down the barrel
Of one who'll never fill within.

Still you want to
Get your name on the evening news
'Til everybody wants to be like you.
Take it all 'til you get your fill.
Get your face on the dollar bill.

Shiny Plastic People
Shiny Plastic People
Never quite as real as seen on TV.

I am more than a voice
More than these words
More than this very moment.
Yet I am less than a person
More like an image on your television.

Shiny Plastic People
Never as real as you and me.

Shiny Plastic People
Never quite as real as they'd have you believe.
