"Looking at the Invisible Man" as written by Dean Anthony Fertita and Jack White....
I'm the invisible man
Like a broke down engine
No skin on my bones at all
No skin on my bones at all
I got nothin'
You can't hit me

Yeah, you're looking at me
Like you know what you're talking about
Ain't nothing to see
Wave your hands in the dark woman
Yeah, you're looking at me
Like you know what you're talking about
Ain't nothing to see here, now nothin'
You can't hit me

I'm like a broke down engine
I'm the invisible man
No skin on my bones at all

You look like you know what you're talking about
Like you know what you're talking about
Like you know what you're talking about
There ain't nothing to see
There ain't nothing to see
You can't hit me
You can't hit me

I'm the invisible man
I'm like a newspaper
You can't read

There ain't nothing to see
Like you know what you're talking about
Like you
Like you know what you're talking about
Like you
Like

    General CommentPossibly he feels seperate or isolated from everyone else, and they don't know him at all, but they think they know him and act like they do, but they've got completely the wrong impression and haven't bothered to find out for themselves. Maybe because of this, out of stubbornness he doesn't want them to know anything about him just so that he has an advantage over them.

    General Commentas the band said, the record is all about identity, masking your identity, social media and honesty.

    I think what this song is saying is that when you're arguing with a person face 2 face you most likely know the other person, you can see him/her, you can see how s/he reacts, maybe how s/he feels, you can even physically attack him/her.
    But when arguing or just communicating through the Internet or texts or something like that, you can't tell if what you read is genuine. S/He is invisible in a sense, because you can't read his/her face. The other person may seem agitated or furious but is in fact calm. S/He is untouchable because there are no links between your lives and as much as you might think you know about this person, in the end it can all be fake. And if it's all fake, you can't hurt this person.
