The Florentine Lyrics

A visionary painter with techniques so fine
Viewed the world through two empirical eyes
A polymath
That did not fit the paradigm
Thus he chose to redefine
With a curious mind, the Florentine

Detailed delineations, observations precise
Studies and sketches, freehand fine lines
War machines and grand designs
Intelligence taking flight
In the beautiful mind of the Florentine

High winds, hard rain, a deluge comes
In monstrous diluvian waves
With black chalk marks, destruction pours
In torrents where nothing is saved

You showed us
New ways to know our world
Of what we see and all we could be - ah
Inspire us to reach and spur us on
Daring us to dream - see further
Your notes, fine drawings and designs
Are bound in codices
Voyaging through time
You are a guiding light
A star
Burning brightly
Voyaging through time
To know where shadows are and light is not
Burn brightly
You star

Diving deep for pearls
A gift to the world
