lyrics

If your photographs aren't good enough 

You're not close enough

If the words aren't the ones that they said

They'll never be enough

You used to call it your reason, your inspiration

That Capa hanging over your bed

Go ask that woman when they shaved her head

About dignity and being bad



They always made you smile with their guile

But you never thought you'd be one of them
All the tricks, supercilious pricks
Now you don't even trust your own friends


Oh, how did you get so cold inside

Oh, when did you get so lost, so tired


Did you see yourself there on the lawn

Sipping margaritas with Bob and Carl

While the Post beat a path to the door

Of the last Englishman out of Vietnam 


Now you make up words they never said

But you knew they would if they'd thought of them

Next day they're lying there on the page

And you can hardly hide your disappointment



Oh, how did you get so cold inside

Oh, when did you get so lost, so tired



If your photographs aren't good enough

You're not close enough
