i fell for you

I Fell For You

Wasting away in the zero zone,

I fell for you but I should have known,

You pass through these phases like waves on the sea,

Ships break like porcelain – sailors of grief,

Down into he Whirlpool that keeps them insane,

And I wonder if I can escape it again,

The mundane rebel, he secretly cries,

His valentine memories hidden inside,

And he tells he that he’d sell his soul for your kiss,

To Prototype Pete and the mindless kids,

Has his pride given way to this false paradise,

As he watches your shadow on the window at night.


Time for me to leave; find it hard to breathe,

The spectacle of life has blown me out,

Since I fell for you.

I can hear the balalaikas play,

Ever so gently over the waves,

And your dancing illusion through the smoke in the room

If we’re gonna make it, the let’s make it soon.
