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
