[rev. Sept. 8, 2013]

I knew this man, he had some kind of fatal affliction.
Each day, a tiny particle, a small drop of his soul, leaked or escaped into the air,
out beyond the insipid gray sky and into dead space.
The paranormal specialist could find no way to plug the tiny perforations
which dripped his spirit behind him as he went on down the highway.

Fall in love with me (oo-oo-oo-ooh)
Fall in love with me (It's not impossible)
Fall in love with me (oo-oo-oo-ooh)
Fall in love with me (It's not impossible)

It was attributed to hashish and opium addiction, excessive womanizing,
lashings of money and flattery, and a charmed, but not charming life.
Who can describe the agony of this gradual soul depletion?
Too cowardly to take his own life, he roamed the cafés and cabarets
searching out other wretches who shared his most hideous malady.
And they spent their days in sophistry and idle banter,
as their essence oozed, and the void moved ever closer.

Fall in love with me (oo-oo-oo-ooh)
Fall in love with me (It's not impossible)
Fall in love with me (oo-oo-oo-ooh)
Fall in love with me (It's not impossible)

Fred, the man, charlatan bastard, poor piteous doomed puppet,
immersed himself in these vices, but this only exacerbated his demise more rapidly.
Eventually he could derive pleasure from nothing,
the most lurid pornography or the most holy scriptures
failed to arouse him from his stupor, his boredom.
Great cities, or the endless beautiful plains stretched out before his jaded gaze,
and disappeared into the nothingness of his feeling.

Fall in love with me (oo-oo-oo-ooh)
Fall in love with me (It's not impossible)
Fall in love with me (oo-oo-oo-ooh)
Fall in love with me (It's not impossible)

Fall in love with me (oo-oo-oo-ooh)
Fall in love with me (It's not impossible)
Fall in love with me (oo-oo-oo-ooh)
Fall in love with me (It's not impossible)

Fall in love with me (oo-oo-oo-ooh)
Fall in love with me (It's not impossible)
Fall in love with me...
