Marillion - The Invisible Man Lyrics




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 shout 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
Close behind you in St.Stephen
You lit a candle
Blessings in the cold night air

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

If I close my eyes
I can see where you live
Climb the winding stairs
Up to your apartment
The scent of you preparing
His evening meal
I must 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 scream 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.

    Nice happy cristimes

  4. Steven Crumb

    This is proof of the Mandela Effect and the current instability of the space time dimension since 2012, Cern, and the Earth being transported to another arm of the Milky Way Galaxy!...Ahem.. I have been listening to Glam, New wave, New Age, Symphonic, etc. rock since the 70's and I've never heard of this group until now!? Beam me up Scotty! Can't deal!

  5. FireIntheKrypt

    Godlike performance. Thank you, stranger, for introducing me to this. You know who you are.

  6. kollo duke

    First time ive heard your voice .i doff my my hat too you sir ..respect ..

  7. M W

    That had to be the best live performance I’ve ever heard. Steve H is such a dramatic singer. Such an emotional song and he plays the character perfectly.

  16. Earth Has Curve

    I'm glad to have rediscovered this. When working for a radio station I sorta dismissed them in the late 80s. Maybe i didn't wait till the third album, which always tells the tale.

  17. António Luís

    Absolutely amazing!

  18. Purple Rose

    Another mesmerising performance from a truly wonderful set of musicians and a exceptional vocalist and performer 🥰

  28. Jahnava Reza

    Is a feeling that flows all over the planet, above mountains, oceans, continents and penetrates the deep of earth nurturing every soul on it!

  29. Lyla Christopherson

    A Magician in Real Life. Spinning a Spell Binding performance. Unbelievable to witness first hand.

  30. Ailton Valle

    Uma das melhores bandas do planeta.Essa música é um clássico.

  31. Alex Rios

    Marillion has the distinction of being very fortunate to have two of the best lyricists ever. One a poet, the other a dramatist. Fish being a Byron and Shelley. Hogarth a Shakespeare. Brilliant both of them.

  32. Aureli Zurita

    Gallina de piel. The best skin sensation. My head is fortune...

  33. Giuseppe D'Onchia

    La perfezione della musica. Elogio ai Marillion

  34. edsa 131

    I loved the Fish era and still play the music a lot, but you have to admit H added a totally new dimension to the band and he has enabled Marillion to produce some excellent pieces of music. This is epic!

    Mos Kito

    yes it is... i am glad i found MARILLION back after so many years...and they are like good red whine...better with the years

    kollo duke

    Really good performance ..pity about the clappers! ...lol

  35. Serena Flamini

    CAPOLAVORO ASSOLUTO! TUTTI A PORT ZELANDE 2019!!!!

  38. ISRAEL ONE LOVE

    It is as if I have known you personally long ago...Are you Adam? How can you know so much about my life and with The Bible what other books are you reading to know me so well inside and out. Who are you really "H" ???

  39. ISRAEL ONE LOVE

  53. Digitos Crudos

    The best performance of 'The Invisible Man'. A complete masterpiece, one of the best Hogarth interpretations ever. My favorite with 'Gaza' from 'A sunday night above the rain'. Very powerful and emotive

  54. Emanuele La Rosa

    Capolavoro, ho le lacrime agli occhi.

  55. Jefrey indriago

    Que gran Bateria

  60. Nigel Blake

    Every single member of this band gives well over 100% each time they perform live! H is just bleeding awesome, I put him right up there alongside Plant and Mercury as one of the finest singers/performers ever, epic, just epic!! Lost count of how many times I've seen them live.............Can't wait to see them again!!

  61. Franck Annat

    il y a eu freddy mercury,aujourd'huit il y a steve hogarth pas assez reconnu dans le milieu a mon gout dommage.

    Christian BLIN

    C'est bien vrai

  64. Bonnie Boswell

    the Invisible Man showed up in The USA this week. Listened to this song for years, I heard it yesterday :-(

  65. Lou D

    A masterfully played wonderful piece of music ! Bravo Marillion.

  66. wraith20072007

    Couldn't have said it better myself David Bond.

  67. wraith20072007

    Steve Hogarths stage presence is so awesome and the band is phenomenal, love Marillion.

  68. Tino Stabile

    I just saw them perform this passed Tuesday evening. The album is EPIC, their performance was incredible including state of the art video and sound. WOW. I too love both era Dave. How do they do it. Their last three releases have surpassed the predecessor. Among the best bands in Neo prog on the planet bar none. Been following them since FISH days as well.
    Long live Marillion and this genre I love so much.

  69. Gido van Schijndel

    Live so much better than in the studio. One of the best perfomance of this song from all of the guys. Thanks so much

  70. Susanne Lips

    love this track :)

  71. crouilbois remy

    grandiose

  72. jabokk

    Very Nice,..

  73. Wojtek Kostanski

    Uwielbiam gościa ,piekny głos piekna muzyka i piosenki

  74. no_mo

    My head is haunted also.

  75. John Q

    Haven't heard much of this band in a long while. Gonna check them out in Ohio (2016 US tour) so I need to get caught up :) Sounds great! reminds me of classic 70's area rock sound (i.e. Genesis, Yes, Pink Floyd, etc)

  76. Gabble Ratchet

    incredible performance.. gives me goosebumps 👍

  77. jay lee

    Is this from a DVD ? Which one?

  78. Dave Bond

    Been following marillion now since 1984 and love both eras of the band although Hogarth pips it for me with the sheer emotion and heartfelt angst he pulls into his songs. This is one of the best songs the band has done to date. Both haunting and mesmerising at the same time. Superb

  79. Marco33185

    j'adore, mais trop de paroles ...

  80. We Buy Houses

    Love it!! Even better in PZ

  81. Mike Soucy

    Fish/Deerk was Marillion back in the day. Serious Genesis styleed music BUT they all rocked as far as musicians go back then.

  86. Peter Russell

    Oh my, this track takes you on an incredible sensual journey. Hogarth is exceptional in his delivery of drama-soaked lyrics. The keys from 3:10 remind me of Pink Floyd. Such subtle yet powerful playing by these mature musicians. Fantastic!!!

    Amine Choukri

    This is the way music should be. Well done boys. You never cease to amaze and delight your legion of fans. This is one of the most passionate of all Marillion's songs. To see it live done like this gives me goose-bumps. Bravo Bellisimo Marillion

    Ramon Guerrero

    in this particular song is amazing how each of the guys pulls out the best of themselves, you name it. Long life for them.

    Amine Choukri

    MARILLION THE BEST

  90. bjnck6425

    kocham !!!

  91. Grabiato Nehrimzer

    i dont know what to say....... fish was a masterpiece

    Jamie Friesen

    +Grabiato Nehrimzer Fish had nothing to do with this?!

    Andy Dnetz

    +Jamie Friesen yeah exactly :-) i liked Fish more as the center of the band

    MrT33CEE

    I have loved both Marillions, I can never understand anyone who can't like a band once a singer leaves, I don't see how anyone can be a true fan of music in that case as its not just about the vocalist, look at other bands that had continued success after their singer left, Van Halen, Genesis, Pink Floyd to name just a few, you and many others have missed out my friend...

    toby buckwyler

    Get over it. I'm glad They've had two great singers.

  92. Sean Cohen

    Incredible song. You can really feel/see the main character losing his mind throughout the song and Hogarth perfectly portrays the performance of this transition. Spine-chilling, cannot wait to finally see these guys live in the US next year!

  93. theakstonsrock

    This song sums up why I think Ian Mosley is the best drummer on the planet. Always fit the song perfectly and always interesting to listen to - and I'm never played a drum kit in my life!

    Lori Fazen

    theakstonsrock he makes drumming look effortless.

    Fabien Shamanix

    Gavin Harrison is even better, in my opinion :)

  94. Jamie Covfefe

    this gets better every time i hear it , so powerful ..

  95. dan
