lyrics

Polaroid, paranoid
Pictures of me on the street
Single flash photograph
Frames the case; throes of defeat
Tragically incomplete
You're all wrong

Drop me at the hotel bar
It's not far; it's not far

I'm not who you think I am
This is not my government van
But I thank you for your attention
I just thought I needed to mention
I'm not your man

Argument, no consent
Leaning on the art of debate
Mickey Finn, closing in
There's little time for me to escape
The proof is altogether too late

Drop me at the hotel bar
It's not far; it's not far

I'm not who you think I am
This is not my government van
But I thank you for your attention
I just thought I needed to mention
I'm not your man

Twenty-two degrees
Separates you from me
It's a mistake; I'm the real fake
So I'm letting go

I'm not who you think I am
This is not my government van
But I thank you for your attention

Drop me at the hotel bar
It's not far; it's not far
There's a girl in a waiting car
It's not far; it's not far

I'm not who you think I am
I didn't author the master plan
But I thank you for your attention
I just thought I needed to mention

I'm not who you think I am
I didn't author the master plan
But I thank you for your attention
I just thought I needed to mention

I'm not who you think I am
This is not my government van
But I thank you for your attention
I just thought I needed to mention
I'm not your man
