Once carried through the current, and being swept away
And though he owns all fortunes, this room is where he'll stay

He is separate from all others, no one knocks upon his door
And his ears will never hear the children's cries
Once proud and full of passion, he fought the cause of man
He changed the old into the new, and the course of things to come

They all became too busy to find him anywhere
On the day he journeyed deep into his mind
I close my eyes, I go far away
In my dreams, well
Where innocence plays with all
The kind who are crying right now
A taste of freedom from the pain
Life is sweet but I took it all for granted
Just what we permit, we allow
Allow me to forget the life I've made my own
Oh, allow me just one answer, and one reason why
Tell me why
Daydreams filled his nighttimes, and night-dreams filled his days
You thought he was so powerful, and set upon his ways

And with him died the chronicles that no one ever read
I'll draw the drapes, now destiny is done
