Albert Hofmann
He was the chemist at Sandos
\For nearly 40 years
He was in charge of medicinal plants and mushrooms
And his work made it possible for enough of us
Well, some of us to experience something other than current eating, shitting, and sleeping, walking mentality we all currently share

April 16, 1943
He took another look at LSD-25
A substance he had been working with 5 years earlier
April 19, 1943
The world's first bicycle
Bicycle day, bicycle day
Learn how to ride your bike
In a brand new way
Albert Hofmann
Had the world's first LSD trip
While riding his bicycle home from work
He was a scientist for over 70 years
And he did more to help our species evolve than Rene Descartes

April 28, 2008
Surrounded by friends, family, and loved ones
At his home at the tender age of one hundred and two
Albert Hofmann died

Standing on the shoulder of giants
Gives me a view that others can't see
Unless they're standing on the shoulders of giants
Taking a look at what I see
Yeah, yeah, yeah...
