He seems to be completely unreceptive
The tests I gave him show no sense at all
His eyes react to light the dials detect it
He hears but cannot answer to your call

See me, feel me, touch me, heal me
See me, feel me, touch me, heal me

There is no chance no untried operation
All hope lies with him and none with me
Imagine though the shock from isolation
When he suddenly can hear and speak and see

See me, feel me, touch me, heal me
See me, feel me, touch me, heal me

His eyes can see
His ears can hear his lips speak
All the time the needles flick and rock
No machine can give the kind of stimulation
Needed to remove his inner block

Go to the mirror boy!
Go to the mirror boy!

I often wonder what he is feeling
Has he ever heard a word I've said?
Look at him in the mirror dreaming
What is happening in his head?

Listening to you, I get the music
Gazing at you, I get the heat
Following you, I climb the mountain
I get excitement at your feet!

Right behind you, I see the millions
On you, I see the glory
From you, I get opinions
From you, I get the story

What is happening in his head
Ooooh I wish I knew, I wish I knew

    General Comment@Ashtray-girl I think it's pretty clear it's Tommy. Since it follows the words "What is happening in his head?" . And I think that he adresses himself or respectively his reflection in the mirror. That's why I love reccurence of this theme in the end. After Tommy is rejected by his followers he returns to his "See me, feel me, touch me, heal me" mantra realising than even in his newly found awarness he is jsut as lonely and isolated as he was in his previous state. The end of album itself is very cathartic becouse than Tommy realises that he doesn'T need any followers and fans but that he only needs to be his own follower and fan. Once again he feels captivated by his own self as he did before looking in the mirror. At least that is my take
