This song is performed by Luxuria and appears on the album Unanswerable Lust (1988).
I turned to her and I said

We'll hurl my biography
into this whirling pool
see which way the blue ink runs
on an ocean of lenses
I'm drifting like a fool
smouldering focus of those instant suns

And all of these
cause and effect motion pictures
impossible to avoid
a single image of me
it's living
on a whole subcontinent of celluloid

You'll like me
you're like me
you'll recognise my name
you'll like me
you're like me
have a picture of me
pointing out of frame
now go ...

The magnifying circus
the magnifying circus
a wealth of detail is going cheap
cause and error
trial and effect
isn't it enough to put you all to sleep?

But my likeness
it's to your liking
so I won't stay away
I'll be back long before you know it
to dazzle you again
I daresay

You'll like me
you're like me
you'll turn the page and watch
your kids are eating effigies of me
fluorescent butterscotch

There's a shimmering lake of real lives
it's a backdrop
it's an afterthought
tell rite, will there be a dressing room
and will there be shadows at the airport?

This set is hotter than the Holy Land
it all beats down from above
long golden weeks of close-ups
cool and convincing shows of love

You'll like me
you're like me
you'll recognise my name
you'll like me
you're like me
have a picture of me
pointing out of frame

You'll like me
you're like me
you'll turn the page and watch
your kids are eating effigies of me
fluorescent butterscotch

If one life has been saved
by this photography session
it has been worth it
