Tommy was the protagonist of The Who's 1969 rock opera "Tommy" which was inducted into the Rock Hall of Fame and has sold 20 million copies worldwide. Tommy, traumatized by seeing his father kill his mother's lover becomes blind, deaf and mute. In the meantime, Tommy becomes a pinball wizard:
He's a pin ball wizard
There has got to be a twist.
A pin ball wizard,
S'got such a supple wrist.

How do you think he does it? I don't know!
What makes him so good?'

He ain't got no distractions
Can't hear those buzzers and bells,
Don't see lights a flashin'
Plays by sense of smell.
Always has a replay,
'N' never tilts at all
That deaf dumb and blind kid
Sure plays a mean pin ball.

The last song of the album is See me, feel me. The chorus goes:
See me
Feel me
Touch me
Heal me.

Thus the reference to see me, feel me, touch me, hear me.
