« Walter »

Oh, man of mighty intellect
Oh, man with the brain
Oh, man with all the answers
Oh, man in silent pain

If you were only half the man you thought you were
With only half a brain
There’d still be plenty enough to go around
Then half as much again

But now we see you’ve gone away
By some oddly ordained plan
The hole that’s left’s an unholy one
Shaped wholly by one man

Sad the way this open mind
Somehow has failed to see
What life awaits just steps ahead
Life that won’t ever be…

Oh man with brains that go on for days
And laughter just the same
There’s more to life than intellect
But I’ve no chance now to explain
