Arctic Monkeys - Plastic Tramp Lyrics




He looks as if he hasnt slept, his hair is purposely unkept
And then he knew his people wept, when you crafted your plan
The shadows underneath the eyes, and everywhere the bastard lies
My lack of Proof is your disguise, you won't remember me
There's nothing really I can say, but sorry mate and walk away
I could be wrong unless you play your game,
This world is cruel and most unkind
And horrible is redefined, I can't imagine that you'd mind at all

You're lying again, you're conscious ain't your friend
And the only thing your sobbing out is your imagination,
Lying again you're conscious ain't your friend and the only thing your sobbing out is your imagination
Is he really on the street, desperation on deceit and what he's wearing on his feet won't solve our mystery,

And I am baffled by how you stand there, soaking it in
And do you hide your identity where you hide your grin, better hide your grin

Shadows underneath the eyes, everywhere the bastard lies
My lack of Proof is your disguise, you won't remember me

There's nothing really I can say, but sorry mate and walk away
I could be wrong unless you play your game,
This world is cruel and is most unkind
And horrible is redefined, I can't imagine that you'd mind at all
You're lying again, your conscious ain't your friend
And the only thing your sobbing out is your imagination,
Lying again your conscious ain't your friend and the only thing your sobbing out is your imagination

    He looks as if he hasn't slept
    His hair is purposely unkept
    And then he know his people wept
    When you crafted your plan
    Shadows underneath the eyes
    And everywhere the bastard lies
    My lack of proof is your disguise
    You won't remember me
    There's nothing really I can say
    But sorry mate and walk away
    I could be wrong unless you play your game
    This world is full of most unkind
    And horrible is redefined
    I can't imagine that you'd mind at all
    You're lying again, you're conscience in your friend
    And the only thing you're sorting out is your imagination
    Lying again, your conscience in your friend
    And the only thing you're sorting out is your imagination
    Is he really on the street?
    Desperation or deceit?
    And what he's wearing on his feet
    Won't solve our mystery
    And I am baffled by
    How you stand there, soaking it in
    And do you hide your identity
    Where you hide your grin? Better hide your grin
    Shadows underneath the eyes
    Everywhere the bastard lies
    My lack of proof is your disguise
    You won't remember me
    There's nothing really I can say
    But sorry mate and walk away
    I could be wrong unless you play your game
    This world is full of most unkind
    And horrible is redefined
    I can't imagine that you'd mind at all
    You're lying again, your conscience in your friend
    And the only thing you're sorting out is your imagination
    Lying again, conscience in your friend
    And the only thing you're sorting out is your imagination

  4. DorianCroatia20

    At first sight I saw Plastic Trump, I was like what the fuck is this. Nice song btw...

  5. Kieran O'Connor

    This song wouldn't go down well in 2018. Too much political correctness.

  6. Kieran O'Connor

    I mean..this is amazing, just fantastically incredible!

  7. Phoebe Ashton

    I am enjoy this 👍🏼😀

  8. Gabriel George-Baker

    fuck they USED to be so good. I miss when they where like this.

    Nowadays you just change "tramp" to "trump" and the song gets totally new meaning. Btw it is so underrated, so very underrated

    zombiehoe

    Stfu liberal

    A Box

    Trump's actually not half bad.

    Ants In My Pants

    Just enjoy the song and forget about all that bullshit for a moment.

    Ivan Törner

    PREDO CALÇAS FEDIDAS How?

    Remix Dragon

    Ivan Törner because he's the one who hides his grin

  17. lava lamp

    the song is about a man who pretends to be poor and begs on the street for money and Alex wonders what he does it for .

    War Monkey

    kult fuhrer I know a couple of professional beggars they can make up to £100 pounds a day and they are all on the sick DLA/ PIP so when I see someone beginning I don't give them a penny🐒

    Rory Whelan

    War Monkey I see you everywhere, with your signature "🐒"

    Fernanda Martins

    @MrAnatole10 actually I didnt understand the song till I read that comment

    Yuri Averyanov

    @Fernanda Martins ikr been listening for so long never had an idea

    Martin Anthonio16

    @Sean Win Are you reffering to AM? Some of the songs have complex lyrics, but the rest are dry and flat pop lyrics. Their first 3 albums has Alex's best lyrical work, especially Humbug.

  18. Connor Davies

    That baseline is 10/10

    gabriel

    (comment valid for any AM's song)

    A Box

    @Sethwell Orthography*

    Spam singles

    @Sethwell I can't say the same for your orthography* either

  19. Ilse A

    I love this

  20. andrew kennedy

    man's a fucking genius.... my best up to date

  21. mika mika mika

    you know they had live performance of this song

  22. CptBtrFace

    1:28 My favorite part

    Emanuel Hernandez

    I am with you

    zomgseriosuly

    Omg AGREED so fucking good

  23. DaltonsDayss

    by far my fav song

  24. Matheus Coelho

    Influência de punk da porra, essa fase era do caralho.

    Kennedy Souza

    Influência de Punk rock, Com certeza! Essa fase foi mesmo DO CARALHO!

  25. TheFirestag

    the most underrated song ever

    Jesus Mesina

    You know everybody says that about every song that isnt in AM right?

    Alexander Luna

    B-sides are so underrated

    Dieguingui E

    Alexander Liszt agreed

  26. Królik BMX

    1:50 it's no end xd sorry my English is not good

  27. THC ZAR

    505 likes!? Get it 505, it's planned you guys

    S A

    Well Im going back to 505

    swag koning

    Well it's 2000 now

  28. MG98

    People like you make me mad

  29. kevsess

    Maybe there's some big philosophical meaning behind it that we're just not getting?

  30. Alfredo

    Then you're saying that the fact she likes a kind of music you don't makes her despicable and not worth listening to music you do?
    I don't like 1D though but if she likes AC she's welcome, c'mon...

  31. anna Kovner

    humbug is my second favorite from them actually, its really good if you take time to actually listen to it.

  32. 3runningkid

    should've been on FWN

  33. matmor30

    So what? The video is a song from Arctic Monkeys, WHY THE FUCK would you give a like to a comment with it's name in it?

  34. Pablo du Pontavice

    they're that good :)

  35. 3M views

    so true

  36. soupermanist

    While this might be slightly less agreeable on heroin, I can't imagine it warranting a dislike.

  37. Rougeification

    It really does- at first I only liked Pretty Visitors, but now it's one of my favourite albums - it really is poetic! It was kinda shoe-gaze when I first heard it, but now I can really see it as a work of art...

  38. Saad Shaikh

    Wow! I still haven't come across one song of theirs that I couldn't like! :D
    Can't believe it took me so long to actually find them...

  39. Thierry Walker

    1 dislike, evidently you're on heroin.

  40. gabriel

    fly away captain. fly away.

  41. Grace T

    OMFG YES!!!

  42. REVI

    Humbug's songs are fine, the B-sides should have been added on!

  43. Johnny Anaya

    The thing about Humbug is that they decided that they had grown up and that's why the music is way more melodic and with great cuality that a lot of people couldn't seem to understand (No offense to anyone). I think that Humbug by far is the most interesting and the best record The Arctic Monkeys have done so far.

  44. matmor30

    One writes the name of the band and gets 40 likes. WTF?

  45. samuel charbonneau

    so true!

  46. Francisco Castro

    Some songs in Hambug should have been replaced by some B-sides

  47. zomgseriosuly

    So true!!! Humbug is amazing

  48. Luke Piper

    whats mumbug

  49. Matt Jackson

    maybe if you didn't start listening to the albums in reverse order you would think differently.

  50. MTnorK

    my dad used to look after alex turner when he was a baby because my dads teacher was alex turners mom

  51. Idahoe

    the live version is so much better...... definately on live at the apollo!

    Shadows underneath the eyes, everywhere the bastard lies
    My lack of Proof is your disguise, you won't remember me(8)

  53. Megan

    @Michelada9 It shouldn't do. YouTube downloader uses the YouTube link and downloads the song/video from the server where it is stored for public use on the Internet. I believe it to be so much safer than torrent programmes because they download from other computers, which is fairly risky.

  54. Megan

    @Michelada9 download(dot)cnet(dot)com/YouTube-Downloader/3000-2071_4-10647340(dot)html

  55. Joe Pyne

    @Michelada9 It's a b-side, only available with the Fluorescent Adolescent single. You should check out all their other b-sides, put simply, they're incredible.

  56. Stuart MacDonald

    @Clickme69 omg thankfully! someone that actually understands humbug! about fuckin time!! ... u son, just get it!

  57. Repav1

    @Straic666 I hope that helps.

  58. Repav1

    @Straic666 No, because putting not and didn't(did not) is a double negative, which reverses the sentence's meaning. So 'i could not imagine that u didn't give a damn' would really translate into 'i could imagine that u did give a damn'. A better translation would be 'I couldn't imangine that u would care/give a damn. just leave off the contraction on did and you got it.

  59. Repav1

    @Straic666 It is 'You Would'. If it was 'You Had', then 'mind' would have turned into 'minded'.

    * i can't imagine that you would mind at all

    * i can't imagine that you had minded at all

  60. whateverfloatsurgoat

    Gonna see them in Paris. OMFA, I can't wait !

  61. fasterFuse

    @TheGasimli I cba with the Vaccines supporting but :P Eagles of Death Metal supported them at SECC the first I seen them. Best warm act I have ever seen man everybody was having a riot ! :P

  62. fasterFuse

    @TheCaptainShepard SECC :P They hold an arena quite well man! never thought they could pull it off in an Arena but Alex would be as well doing the whole gig in his boxers on a couch. He basically just chills with the audience man :P

  63. Danbroco

    @fasterFuse Where you seeing them? :)

  64. fasterFuse

    I'll still never understand why this is a B-Side; They gotta' bring out a B-Sides album! Roll on November man! Third time I'll see Alex and ma boys!

  65. diegox1994

    It's not a Bonus Track, it's just a B-Side.

  66. JA77

    this sounds like it should be the new scooby doo theme song or something haha, awesome

  67. Joshua Romani

    0:20
    "When you crapped in your pants"

  68. SistemicFaylure

    My life began to hear this music

  69. ferr811

    this should have totally been a single, its freaking amazing

  70. karma153

    ke wapo siempre le ecucho tsss lo mejor

  71. williammoseleyfan101

    I love this song!
    And I agree with all the Humnug comments....people just have to listen more, and the more they listen, the more they'll love the album.

  72. maddywoo13

    @scarlett01x This is true...I liked it because I love the whole psychedelic scene but I was used to their other stuff. But now? I've listened to this album much more than I have the others

  73. tommoelbommo

    Humbug is an album that people will still dismiss in 10yrs because it is relatively inaccessible... the reason being is that it is so brutally subtle in its genius, it will still sound fresh in 10 yrs, love it.

  74. Jesse Etsler

    I really like Humbug now; after reading some of these i realize some people are divided. But it's an album that has to grow on you, you can't just listen through one time and make a valid judgment. I like that it's different from their other albums. I don't know if it has anything to do with Alex wanting to make it big over here in the US but i honestly think they tried another style to see how American listeners would accept it.

  75. Joe Doyle

    This is the direction they're going in now.
    This isn't far off anyway, besides, it better they change than stay the same every album surely.

  76. Chacha5678

    @nahuelstroke yeah I still have to get their album and listen to it a few times.. but I'm just judging from what I heard online of most of the new songs

  77. Nahuel Di Salvo

    Please...listen to Humbug 2 o 3 times paying attention to each song... It's not easy to hear, but I think it's a great album. sorry for my english.

  78. Chacha5678

    are you Dani?

  79. Thor Odinson

    Y THE FUCK IS THIS A B SIDE

  80. Chacha5678

    yeah, listening to the radio with all these 'mainstream hits' makes me want to like shoot myself in the head lol (not really, but the music is just so annoying)

  81. yoshigura

    Damn this song rocks. Such amazing riffs, it should've made it to the A side for sure

  82. Chacha5678

    ahhhhhhhhh i love them!
    what would I do without AM!

  83. Jack Sullivan

    yer we heard.

  84. D Clancy

    nice formula i suppose

  85. azadî

    ..how can a band be so.. awesome?
    this song's great

  86. D Clancy

    every where the bastard lies...
