He had a thousand ideas
You might have heard his name
He lived alone with his vision
Not looking for fortune and fame

Never said too much to speak of
He was off on another plain
The words that he said were a mystery
Nobody's sure he was sane

But he knew
Knew more than me or you
No one could see his view
Where was he going to?
