From bell push to faucet

Is there a heaven? 

I'd like to think so 

Standars of living 

They're rising daily 

But home oh sweet home 

It's only a saying 

From bell push to faucet 

In smart town apartment 

The cottage is pretty 

The main house a palace 

Penthouse perfection 

But what goes on 

What to do there 

Better pray there

 

I bought you mail order 

My plain wrapper baby 

Your skin is like vinyl 

The perfect companion 

You float my new pool 

De luxe and delightful 

Inflatable doll 

My role is to serve you 

Disposable darling 

Can't throw you away now 

Immortal and life size 

My breath is inside you

I'll dress you up daily 

And keep you till death sighs 

 

Oh those heartaches

Dreamhouse heartaches

Penthouse aporia
