He had a thousand ideas
He lived alone with his vision

He was off on another plain
Nobody's sure he was sane
But he knew
No one could see his view

The nature of what we are
He was bright as a star
But nobody understood him
He's lost in the deepest enigma

He knew more than me or you
Oh, where was he going to?
But before he could tell us he died
Where was he going to? Oh.
He had a different idea
He could see into the future

It died when he went away
No telling what he might say
But he knew
No one could see his view
But he knew
It was totally something new
