🔸THE INVISIBLE MAN [2/2]
. . SONG FACTS . .
♦️The idea of the song, to a large extent, seems to be the concept of being invisible, not physically, however: "Incredible how you can see right through me... it's criminal how I can see right through you." The Invisible Man can see through people and their veiled emotions and appearances and see what they really are, underneath the facade that they put out. It appears that The Invisible Man became "invisible" after being turned down by a girl who didn't like him - he's reacted back, and now, the only thing that she can think about is him. She can't shake him from her mind, she can't get him back, she can't do anything to him. He's in her life, for good. He's her "Meanest thought" and her "Darkest fear." The last couple of lines, "Look at me, look at me," are basically asking that he no longer be ignored. Again, he's not physically invisible - he can see other people's lives, who they are on the inside, but he is constantly ignored by people who feel they're better than him. As this song was written by Taylor, it would be unlikely that anyone could stretch it to say that this applies to Mercury, that people thought they were better than him because they weren't bisexual. As he did write this after reading a book, it is also possible that the invisible man is in fact invisible and now he's become a stalker, but, that wouldn't explain the "See right through you” lines.
