  • Invisible kid
    Never see what he did
    Got stuck where he hid
    Fallen through the grid

    Invisible kid
    Got a place of his own
    Where he'll never be known
    Inward he's grown

    Invisible kid
    Locked away in his brain
    From the shame and the pain
    World down the drain

    Invisible kid
    Suspicious of your touch
    Don't want no crutch
    But it's all too much

    I hide inside
    I hurt inside
    I hide inside
    But I'll show you...

    I'm ok, just go away
    Into distance let me fade
    I'm ok, just go away
    I'm ok, but please don't stray too far

    Open your heart
    I'm beating right here
    Open your mind
    I'm being right here, right now (x2)

    Invisible kid
    Never see what he did
    Got stuck where he hid
    Fallen through the grid

    Invisible kid
    Got a place of his own
    Where he'll never be known
    Inward he's grown

    I hide inside
    I hurt inside
    I hide inside
    But I'll show you...

    I'm ok, just go away
    Into distance let me fade
    I'm ok, just go away
    I'm ok, but please don't stray too far

    Open your heart
    I'm beating right here
    Open your mind
    I'm being right here, right now (x2)

    Oooh, what a good boy you are
    Out of the way and you're kept to yourself
    Oooh, can't you see that he's not here?
    He doesn't want the attention you give
    Oooh, unplugging from it all
    Invisible kid, floats alone in his room
    Oooh, what a quiet boy you are
    He looks so calm floating 'round and around in himself

    Invisible kid
    Locked away in his brain
    From the shame and the pain
    World down the drain

    Invisible kid
    Suspicious of your touch
    Don't want no crutch
    But it's all too much

    I hide inside
    I hurt inside
    I hide inside
    But I'll show you...

    I'm ok, just go away
    Into distance let me fade
    I'm ok, just go away
    I'm ok, but please don't stray too far

    Open your heart
    I'm beating right here
    Open your mind
    I'm being right here, right now (x2) Writer/s: BOB ROCK, JAMES ALAN HETFIELD, KIRK L. HAMMETT, LARS ULRICH
