Portrait (He Knew) Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
He had a thousand ideas
You might have heard his name
He lived alone with his vision
Not looking for fortune and fame
Verse 2
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
Verse 3
But he knew
Knew more than me or you
No one could see his view
Where was he going to?
Verse 4
He was in search of an answer
The nature of what we are
He was trying to do it a new way
He was bright as a star
Verse 5
But nobody understood him
His numbers are not the way
He's lost in the deepest enigma
That no one's unraveled today
Verse 6
But he knew
He knew more than me or you
No one could see his view
Oh, where was he going to?
And he tried
But before he could tell us he died
When he left us the people cried
Where was he going to? Oh.
Verse 7
He had a different idea
A glimpse of the master plan
He could see into the future
A true visionary man
Verse 8
But there's something he never told us
It died when he went away
If only he could have been with us
No telling what he might say
Verse 9
But he knew
He knew more than me or you
No one could see his view
Where was he going to?
But he knew
You could tell by the picture he drew
It was totally something new
Oh, where was he going to?
Verse 10
Oh.
