He don't live no more / not that he ever did before

I tried to find evidence
of someone that didn't live
A man that had nothing but existence
who didn't quite understand how to give

I tried to look for anything left
and there stood proof of stars and radio signals
of hands once skilled and deft
writing circuit diagrams like sigals

Of the man that had to me taught
of plants, planets, and atmoshperes
But every book and record of his had been left to rot
and there was nothing left when he looked at me but fear.
