“So Far to Fall”
Artist: Emerson, Lake & Palmer
Albums: Works Volume 2 (1977)

I was Master Faster, I was Mister Mystery
There wasn't a mortal man was gonna make a monkey out of me
I had reflex, action, first strike capability
So high so tall
So far to fall

I took my time, my life was all without a cause
Till she came bursting through the front door of my heart
Just like the signs that say I'm followed by a star
Once more, no blame
I'm far, no name

Too much too soon
A touch of moon
A burst balloon
So far
So far to fall

Ooh she had me
She had me running rings around the floor
She had me nailed to a door
She had me crying out
She had me crying out for more, more, more, more, more, more, more
She bade me
She tied me up in knots like a piece of a string
She did a thing to my thing
She did a thing to my thing
Like it's never been done before

Too much too soon
A touch of moon
A burst balloon
So far
So far to fall

Ooh she had me
She had me running rings around the floor
She had me nailed to a door
She had me crying out
She had me crying out for more, more, more, more, more, more, more, more, more, more
She bade me
She tied me up in knots like a piece of a string
She did a thing to my thing
She did a thing to my thing
Like it's never been done before

I saw stars
In the night
I was hers
I was high
I had so far to fall
Such a long way to fall
And I fell
And I fell
And I fell

So if you're Master Blaster or you're Mister Mystery
Don't think you're insulated from love's electricity
There'll be no escape for you, there was no escape for me
So high so tall
One night you're bound to fall
