Moody Blues – Melancholy Man lyrics

I'm a melancholy man, that's what I am,
All the world surrounds me, and my feet are on the ground.
I'm a very lonely man, doing what I can,
All the world astounds me and I think I understand
That we're going to keep growing, wait and see.

When all the stars are falling down
Into the sea and on the ground,
And angry voices carry on the wind,
A beam of light will fill your head
And you'll remember what's been said
By all the good men this world's ever known.
Another man is what you'll see,
Who looks like you and looks like me,
And yet somehow he will not feel the same,
His life caught up in misery, he doesn't think like you and me,
'Cause he can't see what you and I can see.

    About a man who realizes his state of oneness with all that is, living on a primitive planet that doesn't yet. When the "stars" or illusions begin to dissolve, anger arises. His world is shattered and he seeks the reason why within. He begins to observe the ancient messages of the sages as logcal and as he does, he sees himself as a different person. He knows that its nly a matter of time for everyone to conclude the same but the waiting time makes him melancholy.
