Said the man
Who feel him a fool
For he be the wiseman
For the man
Who don't think he's a fool he
Control his destiny
But he's too cool for himself
For himself
For himself
All i need
Is something to keep me movin' on
In a world
Where violence reigns
And everybody seems so strange to me
Said the man
Who feel him a fool
For he be the wise man
For the man
Who don't feel him a fool he
Control his destiny
Yeah he's too cool for himself
For himself
For himself
Oh
This weapon of destruction
Swallows peoples suffering
And no confusion
You aint winnin' if your losin'
We don't need
Said the man
Who feel him a fool he
For he be the wiseman
For the man
Who don't think he's a fool he
Control his destiny
But he's too cool for himself
For himself
For himself
Oh

    The wise man realizes what he doesn't know seeing himself as a fool, the fool sees himself as a wise man because he doesn't see those things and acts confidently as if he's the wise man and controls his destiny. "the fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool" William Shakespeare.

    I'm not sure about that i believe the song reflects the socratic teaching that the wiseman is wise because he knows he knows nothing. The wiseman assumes nothing and searches for wisdom though he knows will never be able to fully achieve it.

    I feel this song is about someone is out of place for being the wiseman. the wiseman cant figure out his own place but sees the good in others lives. so he is a fool
