  • If your circle stays unbroken
    Then you're a lucky man
    'Cause it never, never, never has for me

    In the palace of the virgin
    Lies the chalice of the soul
    And it's likely you might find the answer there

    She had thirteen years of teenage tears
    And never a helping hand
    She had fourteen more of rain before
    She saw the sight of land
    She was a photograph just ripped in half
    A smile inside a frown
    And the the light, the answer right
    Inside her coming down

    It said
    I can go away
    I can leave here
    I can be invisible
    I go away

    He was just eighteen and in-between
    A lady and a man
    His daddy's girl in momma's world
    That was when he ran
    You know the word confused has been abused
    But that's just what he was
    And then the spark inside the dark
    The answer came because it said

    You can go away
    You can leave here
    You can be invisible

    Well I grew up quick and I felt the kick
    Of life upon a stage
    So I bought the book and took a fast look
    At just the very last page
    It was a single word that I'd just heard
    From the two that came before
    The only way to really stay
    Is to walk right out the door

    So you can go away
    I'm gonna leave here
    I can be invisible

    And go away again
    I can go away
    When I leave here
    I can be invisible

    I said, when you can go away
    Lord you know it's right to leave here
    So I just become invisible
    I went away
    I disappeared before your eyes
    You never touch me you never feel me
    You'll never see me again
    Because I've just become unseen
    Well I'm a photograph that's been torn in half
    We're all eighteen and we're in between
    We need a helping hand to the holy land
    To be invisible
    To go away Writer/s: APPICE, CAMPBELL, DIO
