Sting – Invisible Sun lyrics

I don't want to spend the rest of my life
Looking at the barrel of an Armalite
I don't want to spend the rest of my days
Keeping out of trouble like the soldiers say
I don't want to spend my time in hell
Looking at the walls of a prison cell
I don't ever want to play the part
Of a statistic on a goverment chart

There has to be an invisible sun
It gives it's heat to everyone
There has to be an invisible sun
That gives us hope when the whole day's done

It's dark all day, and it glows all night
Factory smoke and acetylene light
I face the day with me head caved in
Looking like something that the cat brought in

There has to be an invisible sun
It gives it's heat to everyone
There has to be an invisible sun
That gives us hope when the whole day's done

And they're only going to change this place by
Killing everybody in the human race
And they would kill me for a cigarette
But I don't even wanna die just yet

There has to be an invisible sun
It gives it's heat to everyone
There has to be an invisible sun
It gives us hope when the whole day's done

    The song is about the time in Northern Ireland when it was basically embroiled in civil war. The reference to an "invisible sun" is meant to imply that there was hope, even in that situation.
    Interestingly, the concept of an "invisible sun" exists among some esoteric groups like the Rosicrucians. They say that there is a spiritual sun that provides energy to the souls of the spiritually awakened people just like the material sun provides energy to the Earth. I wonder if Sting ever read about anything like that before he wrote this song.
