"Invisible" as written by Isaac Brock, Eric Judy, Tom Peloso, Jeremiah Green, Johnny Marr and Joe Plummer....
Oh, well lesson dance
And shoot to God
A storm-suffered owl
You're not invisible inside your car
No matter what stupid sort of mission you're on
Well, you're not invisible inside your car

I go absolutely mental
Good ramblin' George
Well, you're not invisible inside your car
No matter, you could breathe it like your flies in a jar
Yeah, you're not invisible

I like the sailing, teeming
Well, it's true that the moon could pull it back and far away from me
I should just let it be
Well, it's true that the moon could pull it back and far away from me
(And it's sad)

Oh, we had to have some kind
Room shaped like a charm
Well, you weren't invisible
Not all along
No matter how many eagles came in the door
We were not invisible
I knew that

I like the sailing, teeming
Well, it's true that the moon could pull it back and far away from me
And there's the orphan sea
We were never invisible, but that I guess we did not see

Of course this all had been laid down
Way before we lay down for it all
Before we had a course, of course
Of course this all had been laid down

Of course we lay down
Of course we lay down
Of course we lay down
Of course we lay down
Of course we lay down
Of course we lay down

I like the sailing, teeming
Well, it's true that the moon could pull it back and far away from me
I like the orphan sea
Well, we were never invisible, but that I guess we could not see

We'll get crushed by the ocean
But it will not get us wet
Crushed by the ocean
But it will not get us wet
Crushed by the ocean
But it will not get us wet
Crushed by the ocean
But it will not get us wet

    General Comment"We'll get crushed by the ocean but it will not get us wet" has been an uncontrollable montra for me all day. On the surface, its obvious meaning is that global warming's effect on the oceans will be catastrophic for the majority of the earth's human population (though the flooded cities' dead will get wet). Maybe it's a testament to our helplessness (the writer's ironic respect for the God he apparently doesn't believe in)?

    And for the "orphaned sea"...Man is apparently at the highest evolutionary point in earth's history. Though terrestrial, he's treated the sea worse than the land (trash, human waste, genocidal fishing[though the land's not exactly cared for]).

    Given the 10% of the time (1 time out of 10, everything is perfect for us all {Bukowski}) positive attitude of the writer, a reference to the 10% of our population that will survive in the event of every major catastrophy that likely will happen in the next century (natural distasters, famine, energy crises, loss of MAJOR cities due to global warming (New York, Los Angles, all of Florida (surprisingly given it's own song on this album), not even to mention Southeast Asia.

    They manage to non-pretentiously make songs about every major concern of humanity, should you subscribe to this interpretation.

    Maybe this is the real root of the drug culture's attachment to the writer's lyrics - they are saying things that we don't can't quite contemplate the full meaning of (Stars Are Projectors). If you've ever gotten too loaded on mushrooms (everytime I've even looked at a mushroom) you probably fully understand this.

    General CommentWell listen dancing shifter, got a strong cell phone arm.
    Oh you’re not invisible inside your car. No matter what
    consuming sort of mission you’re on, well you’re not
    invisible inside your car. So absolutely mental gonna
    ramble and charge. No you’re not invisible inside your
    car, no matter you just breathe it like your flies in a jar.
    No you’re not invisible. I like the saline tea. Well it’s true
    that the moon can pull it back and forth away from me. I
    should just let it be. Well it’s true that the moon can pul l
    you back and forth away from me. Well it had to happen
    sometime gonna shake like a charm. Well we weren’t
    invisible not all along. No matter how many eons came
    and are gone. We were not invisible. I like the saline tea.
    Well it’s true that the moon can pull it back and forth
    away from me. And there’s the orphaned sea, we were
    never invisible, but that I guess we didn’t see. Of course
    this all had been laid down way before. We laid down for
    it all before we had a course, of course, of course this all
    had been laid down before. Of course we lay down. I like
    the saline tea. Well it’s true that the moon can pull it
    back and forth away from me. And like the orphaned
    sea, we were never invisible but that I guess we could
    not see. We’ll get crushed by the ocean, but it will not
    get us wet.

    General CommentJust wrote them down by what I heard. As usual, if there are any corrections, post them here and I'll make 'em.

    Man, this song almost makes WWDBtSES seem like a concept album. Very nautical.

    General CommentHey, thanks. You know, I think I read in some other song's comments (not sure which one) that someone thought it was pointless to try and write down the lyrics when we can't understand them -- that we should just wait until the album comes out to be sure. What do you guys think about that? Personally, if I really like a band, I always write down the lyrics as I listen before looking up they lyrics on a site or in the CD case. There's just something about the action of writing down what you hear instead of reading it, even if you don't fully hear it correctly, that increases your understanding of the song. I don't know. I think if more people did that, we would have a lot less comments on this site saying "this song is about drugs" or "this person is singing about death" and all those other kind of blanketed opinions (that I'll probably regret soon..).

    Man, I'm so addicted to this song. I've barely heard half the album and I keep coming back to it.

    General CommentI'm not sure but I think instead of "sailing teeming" it might be "saline tea" ie the ocean? Good job with the song, though.

    General CommentI'm quite sure there are many mistakes in these lyrics. Don't know the correct ones yet, but don't put too much stock in what is up here.
