Plastic Flowers

AS I sit in this jailhouse and look ‘round the place
I just have to laugh at some things
Half-hearted attempts to brighten the space
Attempts to deny what it is

A picture of valleys and mountains complete
A bowl full of candy that nobody eats
And there in the corner white, yellow, and red
A bouquet of flowers, not living or dead

Oh, plastic flowers, what do they mean
It’s the saddest attempt that this man’s ever seen
And who put them there was it some kind of joke?
Those plastic flowers only give me false hope

I can’t cry anymore as I rot in this cell
My luck has run out, bridges burned
When it’s all said, there’s no story to tell
But maybe I’ve got what I earned

And those plastic flowers sit there day after day
It’s been years since someone brushed the cobwebs away
No one cares about them, no one come to see
How I feel for those flowers, ‘cause they’re just like me

Oh, plastic flowers, what do they mean
It’s the saddest attempt that this man’s ever seen
And who put them there was it some kind of joke?
Those plastic flowers only give me false hope
