Invisible - U2

www.last.fmby Simon Cleary 

The Experience: Who I am is far more than you know, more than you see, more than you let me be. People can stop my body. But they can never stop my soul. No-one can stop me - I belong in the invisible world..

Video: U2's live performance, where the crowd ends chanting with U2 there is no 'them', only 'us'. Walls between people have been destroyed, from an "I vs. them" mindset, the crowd becomes one, united into "us." The bond between us remains invisible, yet oh so real. 


The Meaning of U2 Invisible is we belong in the invisible world. We are a body in a soul. Freedom, justice, love - all the important things, they're invisible. They belong with the soul. When Bono bases his life on what his soul asks of him, hes says I finally found my real name, more than you know. My identity can't be blocked by what 'they' call me or let me be. I'm more. 
Bigger than just personal identity, Bono's meaning to the lines "There is no 'them', there's only 'us', only 'me'..." pulls out one more truth of the importance of your soul: our having souls makes others no longer 'them', distant from me. Others become 'us', people like me, no matter how different their skin color, sex, age. I treat my neighbor as myself - then there's only me. That's the importance of knowing your soul, of being in the invisible world.  

Ask Yourself: Do I believe my body determines me? Do I realize having a soul makes me more than you let me be - it makes me free, invisible? 


LYRICS:
It’s like the room just cleared of smoke
I didn’t even want the heart you broke
It’s yours to keep
You just might need one

I finally found my real name
I won’t be me when you see me again
No, I won’t be my father’s son

I’m more than you know
I’m more than you see here
More than you let me be
I’m more than you know
A body in a soul
You don’t see me but you will
I am not invisible

That's right
I’ll be in the invisible world

I don’t dream, not as such
I don’t even think about you that much
Unless I start to think at all

All those frozen days
And your frozen ways
They melt away your face like snow

I’m more than you know
I’m more than you see here
I’m more than you let me be
I’m more than you know
A body in a soul
You don’t see me but you will
I am not invisible
I am here

There is no them
There is no them
There’s only us
There’s only us
There is no them
There is no them
There’s only us
There’s only us
There is no them
There is no them
There’s only you
And there’s only me
There is no them
