Berikut lirik lagu Kansas – Point (He Knew) :

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

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

But he knew more than me or you
No one could see his view
Oh, where was he going to

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

But nobody understood him
His numbers are not the way
He's lost in the deepest enigma
Which no one's unraveled today

But 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, going to?

He had a different idea
A glimpse of the master plan
He could see into the future
A true visionary man

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

But he knew more than me or you
No one could see his view
Oh, where was he going to

And he knew, you could tell by the picture he drew
It was totally something new
Where, where was he going to?
