    takes me further      from heaven.

Dm                              F      - Em                            G

    From bell-push to faucet,         in smart town apartments,

Dm                         F    - Em                               G

    the cottage is pretty,         the main house a palace.

Dm                        F                         Em                        G

    your skin is like vinyl,         the perfect companion,

4.    Inflatable doll,         my role is to serve you,

Dm                   F          - Em                               G

    disposable darling,           can't throw you away now.

Dm                     F           - Em                        G
