Invisible Sun Lyrics
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...

maybe it's the 'inner sun' or the 'black sun' as some call it. the 'all-see-in eye on the pyramid on the US $1 bill or The 3rd eye pineal suggested by others. even the bible says God is within, so maybe that's how they describe it because it's unseen by the other 2 eyes.

Six is the number of counties in Northern Ireland, not the "number of the beast."

Sting wrote the song about Northern Ireland. Sting was amazed at how, even in the midst of war, strife, gloom and despair, people still manage to get up each morning and go to work or school. Even when there seems to be no hope and no good reason to go on living, people in places like Belfast still find the strength to carry on.
"The invisible sun" is Sting's name for whatever it is that gives people the strength to endure.
Incidentally, while Sting wrote the so0ng about Northern Ireland, Police drummer Stewart Copeland says the lyrics always made him think of Beirut.
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

Wrong guys, it's about the political unrest and tumoil in Northern Ireland.

My interpretation is very similar....I think invisible Sun refers to the "Son of God" -- Jesus, always present, not always visible, but there always giving hope. He gives me hope!
