pretty pretty plastic pieces
braces snaps straps and laces
     you can be a perfect assembly
     you can be an idyllic allegory

pretty pretty plastic faces
nip tuck stretch and straighten
     you should be a perfect assembly
     you should be an idol like me

pretty pretty plastic smiles
suck swallow bow and revile
     you need to be a perfect assembly
     you need to be an idyllic allegory

pretty pretty plastic hearts
silent hollow still and dark
      you will never be a perfect assembly
      you will never be an idol like me
