More paranoia.Cameras steal your soul, don't they?

lyrics

Who's that behind the camera lens
Who is it I can't see?
Who is the one that makes her
Smile so nervously?
Eyes to the left
She looks to escape
But the camera holds her still
Imprisoned in colour for a moment in time
Imprisoned against her will.

Oh what a happy holiday
Oh what a time they had
Sun and sand and a sea of champagne
Three cheers for Jack the Lad!

Don't try to steal the love of my child
Don't try to make her yours
All you possess is a trick of the light
Gripped in operator's claws
Eyes to the left
She looks to escape
But the camera holds her still
Imprisoned in colour for a moment in time
Imprisoned against her will.

Oh what a happy holiday
Oh what a time they had
Sun and sand and a sea of champagne
Three cheers for Jack the Lad!

The waves come and go
The tides ebb and flow
the boom of the sea
the madness in me....

Oh what a happy holiday
Oh what a time they had
Sun and sand and a sea of champagne
Three cheers for Jack the Lad!

Who's that behind the camera lens
Who is it I can't see?
Who is the one that makes her
Smile so nervously?
Eyes to the left
She looks to escape
But the camera holds her still
Imprisoned in colour for a moment in time
Imprisoned against her will.
