If life is an illusion


Did death came to take you
Or an illusion of a fake you?
There’s a dying illusion over there
His body is real but his mind is a chair!

If my life is an illusion
Then you don’t have to love me
Then you don’t have to show me you care.
If love is real
Then surely your heartbeat
Is breaking your illusions down.

If your conclusion
Is that we live in an illusion
It’s only because real love is so rare
So you blanket your mind
With protection of all kinds
To pretend that life isn’t there.

If your solution
Is to create an illusion
Because true love is so rare
Just to mislead
The wolf in his greed
That follows you everywhere.

Now it’s your delusion
That you spread the solution
In the hearts of those who aren’t there
Just to escape
To the freedom you make
In the dream at the edge of nightmare.

Life is not an illusion
But love sometimes seems that way.
Life is not an illusion
But love is only real in your dreams.
