"La Folie" as written by and Brian John/cornwell Duffy....
Ton vehicule n'a pas l'air d'avoir de passager
Peux-tu veux tu me recevoir
Sans trop te deranger?
Mes bottes ne feront pas trop d'echos dans ton couloir
Pas de bruit avec mes adieux
Pas pour nous les moments perdus
En attendant un uncertain au-revoir
Parce que-j'ai la folie, oui c'est la folie

Il etait une fois un etudiant
Qui voulait fort, comme en literature
Sa copine, elle etait si douce
Qu'il pouvait presque, en la management
Rejeter tous les vices
Repousser tou les mals
Detruire toutes beautes
Qui par ailleurs, n'avait jamais ete ses complices
Parces qu'il avait la folie, oui, c'est la folie

Et si parfois l'on fait des confessions
A qui les raconter meme le bon dieu nous a laisse tomber

Un autre endroit, une autre vie
Eh oui, c'est une autre histoire
Mais a qui tou raconter?
Chez les ombres de la nuit?
Au petit matin, au petit gris
Combien de crimes ont ete commis
Contre les mensonges et soi disant les lois du coeur
Combien sont la a cause de la folie
Parce qu'il ont la folie

    General CommentGood Evening
    Your vehicle doesn’t seem to have an occupant
    Could you : Would you let me in
    Or would that be too much trouble ?
    My boots won’t echo too much in your passageway
    No noise accompanies my parting
    No wasted moments for us
    Waiting for an uncertain reunion
    Because I’m mad, yes it’s madness

    There once was a student
    Who had a great desire, as they say in books
    His girlfriend was so sweet that by eating her,
    He was able to reject all vices, repulse all males,
    Destroy everything beautiful
    Which up until then, had never been known to him
    Because he was mad, yes it’s madness

    And if sometimes you can confess to it
    To whom can you reveal all - even god himself has
    Deserted us

    Another Life, another place
    And of course, another story
    But to whom can you open your heart ?
    At dawn, at dusk
    How may crimes have been committed
    Against falsehods and so-called laws of the heart
    How many are here because of madness
    Because they are mad


    Found that on a forum

    While waiting for a uncertain
    Parce that-I have the madness, yes it is the madness

    Which extremely wanted, as in literature
    His/her girlfriend, she etait so soft
    That he could almost, in Rejeter management

    Because it have the madness

    General CommentIt is based on a actual French cannibal-killer whose name escapes me. Post-jail, he became a celebrity in Japan.
