"Portrait (He Knew)" was released in 1977 on the album Point Of Know Return. It was clearly about Albert Einstein although not a lot of people seemed to be aware of the fact. It was a great song for a video, and one of my favorite on this particular album, the other's being "Nobody Home", "Closet Chronicles", and "Dust In The Wind".
Point of Know Return was HUGE in 1978! I remember listening to it over and over and over......loved the many instrumental breaks and solos.
The video is just layers and layers of masked images and masked video. Tried for some really cool effects and found some pretty neat ones....'specially fond of that tree recoil effect from the atom bomb at that cool little note drag!
Anyway, as usual....I hope you find something to enjoy.
[Lyrics] 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, 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, 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, Oh where was he 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, he knew more than me or you No one could see his view Oh, 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?
