​Flashes & Cables

This song is by Centro-Matic and appears on the album Love You Just The Same (2003).

If we found the time

If we found the merriment

If we found the words

We'd scratch them in new cement

But those days are gone

And we've got only pictures now

A rotary wheel

And some leftover shotgun shells

Nobody told us that the bastards were here

All the rogues and the scoundrels

Are shedding their tears

No, nobody told us

That the cameras were here

All the flashes and cables

Won't someone please save us

So by our request

Please turn in your uniforms

The medallions and pins

For the aries and capricorns

And file your complaints

With this rookie officer

He'll lend you a smile

He'll lend you his deafest ear

'Cause nobody told us that the bastards were here

All the rogues and the scoundrels

Are shedding their tears

No, nobody told us

That the cameras were here

All the flashes and cables

Won't someone please save us
