"The Harsh Truth Of The Camera Eye" as written by Morrissey, and Mark Edward Cascian Nevin....
Churchillian legs
Hair barely there
The harsh truth of the camera eye

Your eyes signal pain
Because of the strain of smiling
The harsh truth of the camera eye

Telling you all
That you never wanted to know
Showing you what
You didn't want shown

My so friendly lens
It zooms into
"The inner you"
And it tells the harsh truth
And nothing but

Laugh with us all now, here
If you can
Then take the pictures home
And scream

Oh, ooh; telling you all
That you never wanted to know
Showing what
You didn't want shown

This photographer
He must have really had it in for you

"Oh, I don't want
To be judged anymore
I don't want to be judged
I would sooner be Loved
I would sooner be
Just blindly Loved"

    General CommentI think this song is saying that the media and the press takes the worse things about someone and shows it to everyone, and that those pictures could mean nothing about the actual person. The person wants to be loved for who they really are, not judged because of a photo.
