we love all the people
and we love to rock the house
no one knows we’re coming
so no one’s coming out
to this particular rock club
have we played this club before?
you see, I can’t remember
if we’ve played this club before

put your hands together
get on your knees and pray
next time we come around here
we won’t be comin’ back this way
or to this particular rock club
is that really the P.A.
or just somebody’s radio
left in the corner of the room?

just an inch away from your face
I am staring into your eyes
you would be surprised if you could see
what’s an inch from your face
but it’s impossible
I am invisible

Tiptoeing and holding my breath
almost knocking over a lamp

barely able to contain a sneeze
I am invisible
I am invisible
I am invisible

Did you notice something?
Was there somebody there?
No apparently not.
There you felt it again
something creeping around
that you can’t see

doing jumping jacks in the bank
dancing through the supermarket
spinning in the courtroom on one leg
I am invisible
I am invisible
I am invisible

there are details
that I haven’t worked out
like when I eat my lunch
does it disappear
or do you see it going all the way down?

Did the cat just learn how to fly?
no I’m only holding him up
did the cat turn on the dishwasher?
no I’m holding his paw
pushing down on the switch
making it look like he’s
doing it by himself
cause I’m invisible
I am invisible
I am invisible

The 24th instalment of TMBG’s 52-week Dial-A-Song project in 2015.

in a summer house out on Cape Cod a number of years ago
my cousin Charles heard over the radio on WEEI
the story of an automobile that had driven from its garage
and killed a number of couples kissing down by the oceanside

Charles thought about the ocean’s waves down the road just a mile
and as he turned off the radio he saw with his own eyes
the very same door handle they spoke of hooked to that radio dial
and the summer breeze blew in the window
that hadn’t been open before

so if you hear a radio you had best beware
be sure there’s not a car around
because the legend still remains
there’s a car without a handle
and that car is still at large
there’s a car without a handle
and that car is still at large

well it’s a good thing that I brought a napkin
I knew that this would happen
why does this always happen?
that a day of impulsive fun becomes an evening
of injury, blood and grieving
injury, blood and grieving

make way make way and stand aside
the crowd takes up the cry
he comes he comes
bow down bow down and lower your eyes
before the litter borne by men in fancy uniforms
a chariot from which a siren warns
the regal flashing lights and royal horns
behold the great one comes

you’ve got an electric knife
and I’ve got the need to spite my face
I’ve got a nose, I know what to do

hand me that electric knife
marry me and be my wife
be by my side in the electric parade

help me out I can’t seem to get this window open
never mind now it’s open
I think my hand is broken
