Her cheap plate and old silverware
for her fake Chinese rice dinner
of fake plastic food
that she bought from the local store
in a town that is so damn poor
that no one sells real rice
it fills her up, it fills her up
it fills her up… it fills her up.
It looks like the real thing,
tastes close to the real thing
my fake plastic meal
And I can't help the feeling
that it's slowly killing me
but it's all I can buy
it fills me up, it fills me up
it fills me up... it fills me up.
If I could buy some real food, If I could find some real food
All the time, all of the time.
In case you wondered, the Fake Plastic Trees video is "actually an allegory for death and reincarnation but if you can read that into it you must be as weird as the people who made it." Film director (Wikipedia).
