He seemed no different from the rest
His mama always did her best

But never cared much to be held
Into his solitary shell
As a boy he was considered somewhat odd
He would daydream in and out of his own world

Disturbed from time to time
In his solitary shell
A temporary catatonic
When will he break out

He was helplessly behind
Writing for hours at a time
As a man he was a danger to himself
He was drifting in and out of sanity

Disturbed from time to time
In his solitary shell
A momentary maniac
When will he be let out
