The world's gone mad
And I have lost touch
I shouldn't admit it
But I have
It slipped away while I was distracted
I haven't changed
I swear I haven't changed
How did this happen?

I didn't feel myself
Evaporating...

My body has gone
But my eyes remain
Hovering, witnessing
Cold as a ghost... Watching the streets
Sheltering in doorways of
Venice, Vienna, Budapest, Krakow and Amsterdam

I have become the invisible Man

The invisible heart beating against you
The invisible pulse silently thumping

I should my name in the public places
No one seems to notice
No one understands
I stand perfectly still
In the middle of the road
I hold my nerve
I hold my nerve
Hold my nerve
But the cars don't swerve

I will hear your prayers
As you whisper alone
I am the one you felt was close
You lit a candle
Blessings in the cold night air

I will feel your breath as you turn to go
I will watch you leave
From somewhere up high
As you cross the pardk
In the Autumn light
In the Autumn light
In the Autumn light

If I close my eyes
Ican see where you live
Climb the winding stairs
Up to your apartment
The scent of you preparing
His evening meal
I ust watch in dread
When he's cruel to you
In horrified silence
As you make love
I cannot lift a hand
Lift a hand to stop him
I don't exist What can I do?
What can I do?

I will scream in your ear
As you're passing by
I will wrap my arms around you
You won't hear, you won't feel me
I will walk stride for stride with you
I will try to help
When you stumble
You will stumble through me.

I have become the invisible man
It's all I am
Invisible

I have read all your letters
I know what you contain
I have dreamt your dreams
My head...
My head is haunted
I will scram again
I am perfectly sane
I am perfectly sane
But I am
The invisible man
I am The invisible man

Talk to me
Acknowledge me
Confide in me
Confess to me... Or
Leave me be
Leave me be.
