"Invisible" as written by Frank Joseph Bello, Charlie L. Benante, John Robert Bush, Scott Ian Rosenfeld and Daniel Alan Spitz....
I'm wiping the slate spotless
I vow this is your final chance
Almost all but little faith has been thrown out the window
I promise to sustain my stance
You've taken everything from the get go
And you've given nothing in return
Your sadomasochism has reached the ninth inning
Still you're puzzled to see I'm concerned

Struggling, to come to terms with
This god-awful life that I live
Stumbling, but still I try
To get out from under your grip

Transparent in critical moments
You drop me when your hands aren't full
You call yourself my closest friend
Then you make yourself invisible

My simmering blood is rising
Primed and ready to explode
Get off your high horse and come to the party
I'll beat you into overload
Only through your limited viewpoint
You think you know how I exist
Easy to turn my back on the system
Hard not to be an atheist

Back in the days when promises were made
Equality for all
You go by the word from the man who gives it
Never expecting a fall

Struggling, to come to terms with
This god-awful life that I live
Stumbling, but still I try
To get out from under your grip

Transparent in critical moments
You drop me when your hands aren't full
You call yourself my closest friend
Then you make yourself invisible
Transparent in critical moments
You drop me when your hands aren't full
You call yourself my closest friend
Then you make yourself invisible
Make yourself invisible, make yourself invisible
Make yourself invisible, make yourself invisible again

Burn
I never should've trusted
I never should've trusted
I'm sickened and disgusted
I never should've trusted
What happened to me?

Back in the days when promises were made
Equality for all
You go by the word from the man who gives it
Never expecting a fall

Transparent in critical moments
You drop me when your hands aren't full
You call yourself my closest friend
Then you make yourself invisible
Transparent in critical moments
You drop me when your hands aren't full
You call yourself my closest friend
Then you make yourself invisible

    General CommentIt appears this song is letting a friend know that he/she has dropped the proverbial ball so many times that he's prepared to write off the relationship. Sounds like the author may be giving this person one more chance, but is very suspicious & almost out of faith.

    General CommentBest line: "YOU DROP ME WHEN YOUR HANDS AREN'T FULL". Priceless. John Bush rules.

    General CommentI hate to play the God card, but I think this one is actually questioning the existence of God and attacking religion, or perhaps a very religious "friend". "Hard not to be an athiest" says it all right there. Now, what would make it hard not to be an athiest? Maybe because God/Jesus claims to be everyone's closest friend, always there for them, but allows so much pain and suffering to go on in the world, and is never really be there to answer people's prayers when needed. I think the speaker is someone realizing they were completely blinded and let down by religion.

    "Struggling
    To come to terms with this god awful life that I live
    Stumbling
    But still I try to get out from under your grip"

    Religion is seen everywhere.

    Just my two cents anyways.
