lyrics

The Camera Adds Ten Pounds

They want to burn you at the stake
But they’ll have to make a ghost out of me too
Bottle all your breast milk for a keepsake
Sign your name on every portrait you drew

And add a million eyes
Though you commit no crimes
They’ll catch the worst of it on film

And the camera adds ten pounds
When your feet rest on crumbling ground

Take a census of all you’d sacrifice
I can shield you from the flames but not the flashbulbs
It seems we’ll have to earn our paradise
I promise we’ll call it home before we’re skulls

And add a million eyes
Though you commit no crimes
They’ll catch the worst of it on film

And the camera adds ten pounds
When your feet rest on crumbling ground

The sunset paints your face red
We’re the opposite of dead
