"Invisible" as written by Henry Nicola Mancini and Celia Baron....
(Breathing)
(Feel so)
Destroy me
Invisible
Movement
Destroy me
Invisible
Ah ? (Destroy me)
Destroy me
Invisible
Movement
(Invisible Movement)
Destroy me
Invisible

(I ? I can't fight)
(Let me out?) (Romeo)
(Invisible)
(So useless ? So useless I feel alright)
(Invisible)
(Man versus nature; nature veruaoufhsoa) [War] [Man]
Eternal, submission, praise me.

(So ?)
Eternal, submission ? (sigh)
(Domination)
Eternal, submission, praise me.

It never ends ? It never (stops)
I feel so free
Again and again ?
Again and again ?
(I'm going down, (invisible) down, down)
(I'm falling higher)
Again and again ?
Again and again ?
Invisible ?

    General CommentThe paradox of this song: “Eternal submission frees me” has a simple explanation: slavery frees the individual from having to making a decision.

    This song articulates the psyche’s desire to be released from its own its own agency and act automatically, compulsively following a leader, a rhythm, a beat, a higher “invisible” power. Repetition (“again and again”) is a classic fascist technique used to concentrate and centralize power (“Domination”). Training soldiers count their reps, prisoners count the days, media reiterating images and catch phrases train obedience to the masses, religious litanies, etc... “Eternal”, “invisible” are platonic ideals and myths that are used by the ruling class to mask their manipulation of very physical realities. Repetitions come natural to humans because of their biological processes like their sleeping patterns, [breathing] patterns inhale/exhale, heart beat, etc. These processes make particular manifestations on human psychology, as Sigmund Freud described in The Pleasure Principal. The psyche’s has a death drive (“Destroy me Invisible Movement”). We obey our bodies through a system or pain a pleasure and we obey the ruling class though a larger and more complex system of pain and pleasure.

    Monotonous dance music whets the individual’s appetite to act automatically (like a ‘slave to the rhythm’). The electronic beats and pulses (“invisible movement”) is also an easy way to popularize an artist and sell albums “Eternally”.

    General CommentNICE analysys asterix...

    One thing I think I may have a difference of opinion though is the exact meaning of "eternal submission".

    I think the idea behind this line that is he is falling out of sync with reality.
    This could be death or ignorance. But with the sounds of auditory hallucinations in the opening of the song, I think it may be drugs that lead to death.

    Eternal submission, to me, is giving up life. -"I can't fight". "So useless I feel alright" isn't far from the thoughts of somebody contemplating their demise. "Invisible movement" could be the seperation of soul and body(it never stops, I feel so free)

    When he's "going down" he's decending closer to ceasing to exist. Again and again.

    Eternal submission, praise me?

    General CommentAlso, I think you should check out "just let go" on the new album. There are many allusions to bringing the soul that is deep inside to life.

    General Commentanyone interested in the interpretation by SixAsterix should read "Escape From Freedom" by Erich Fromm...deals a lot with Freudian analysis of master/slave relationships, etc.

    and yeah, it's hard not to listen to this song and imagine a leather-clad german frau with a whip standing over you...

    or maybe that's just me....................

    General Commenthate to sound like the kid who always says it's about drugs, but if the intro, deep voice, and some of the lyrics aren't reminiscent of whippets then...well this song just wouldn't be as pointless and cool.
