The Illusion Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Rousseau
1. Illusion (1:19)
instrumental
2. Dreams of Sorrow (4:26)
Accusing eyes looking down on me
Define the lines in the vision I see
Reach for the heavens so far away from me
My dreams stretch across a thousand spaces
With my thoughts I will see through

Grab hold of your dreams
Tomorrow's dreams could be reality today

Don't let your dreams turn to sorrow
Don't let your dreams turn to sorrow

My visions obscured by an uncertain future
But still I continue

Grab hold of your dreams
Tomorrow's dreams could be reality today

Don't let your dreams turn to sorrow
Don't let your dreams turn to sorrow
3. Eyes of a Child (4:22)
And the night unveiled the dark
Unleashed the moon
And the stars flickered light
To the lone enchanted tune
The child closed her eyes
Enough she had of sight
And the paths and doorways opened
To her darkest dreams came the night

Dreams, insanity, raped the virgin mind
Shattered innocence, but to have known
She want to blame
Was to admit their known guilt
Fall prey to the same, she said

"Welcome courage, we dream as not they
The true is true" and she took my hand

If you could see the world through
The eyes of a child
See the dark and know that it hides
You'd learn

Then one day, as she danced in the groves
Her eyes spoke, of a woman, I didn't know
"The years have gone and I'm afraid I must
Depart, but the courage I thank you,
For sheltering my heart"

"Farewell my friend, I dream now as do they"
The truth died as she opened her eyes
I am courage, I dream as not they,
To true be truth. Came the day
4. Head Free (1:29)
instrumental
5. Longtime Forgotten (6:12)
Memories run through my mind, but continue onward
Stop & listen & take a look back at what I have learned
Your Face, a smile a name I once knew
A feeling of emotion is all I have left for you

Foolish games, We've played them as
It's been a while, but I can still stand tall
We were young, a future uncertain ahead
I'm still amazed at this life I've lead

I can still remember the feelings
But it's been a long time forgotten
Seems strange to think about it now
But it's been a long time forgotten

Where are you now, do you remember me
Times have changed, and so have we
Close this door to all the memories
Until again one day...goodbye

I can still remember the feelings
But it's been a long time forgotten
Seems strange to think about it now
But it's been a long time forgotten
A long time forgotten
6. Flames (4:03)
I lay my head down so I may sleep
Another day passes on through the week
Where are we headed to I don't know
Can't someone tell me where to go?

Truth and justice we've heard it before
Equal opportunity is what we're living for
Is it one nation under God?
Or one word under common law!

As I close my eyes, I begin to weep
Can't get out, I've fallen in to deep
We're all lost souls running out of control
Anger and hate will destroy us all

Light the flames of freedom
Stand up and take a chance
Ignite the flames of freedom
The future of the world is in our hands

Step to the edge, but be careful that you don't fall
Run for the shadows, cast upon the wall
Life is the question, is there an answer for me
There's no way out of here
I can't take this anymore

Light the flames of freedom
Stand up and take a chance
Ignite the flames of freedom
The future of the world is in our hands
7. Castle in the Sky (4:45)
A smile, a face, a touch of a hand
Memories of my past flash through my head
I still see you, hear you but I know you're not there
Rememberances of you are hanging everywhere

Was it you who told me to live each day by day
Was it you who would hold me and say it would be okay

I wish I could see you in that castle in the sky
Then never worry or break down and cry
I wished I knew where you were today
Hope you're in that castle looking down my way

When I was a child I always dreamt that I could fly
Soar over mountains and kiss the clouds in the sky
I could touch the sunlight and hold on to it tight
I wished I could hold you in my arms tonight

Was it you who told me to live each day by day
Was it you who would hold me and say it would be okay

Smile down on me I hope you're proud of what I've done
It took some time to gain the courage to go on
Someday I may travel to that place in the clouds
But for now I only look up and speak out loud

Was it you who told me to live each day by day
Was it you who would hold me and say it would be okay

I wish I could see you in that castle in the sky
Then I'd never worry and never cry
I wished I could see you in that castle in the sky
Oh, I just want to see you and look into your eyes
8. World Gone Mad (4:54)
In this world of no silver lining
I've never found a mine of gold
So many problems we're denying
And the flames of hope are growing cold
Sign of the times are just ahead, don't miss it
And in between the lines, Don't be mislead

Oh, I stand by myself, watching in pain
As I open my eyes, I realize

Oh, we're living in a world gone mad
Oh, we're living in a world gone mad

To give up now would make it all in vain
But to continue onward may may drive me insane

Oh, I stand by myself, watching in pain
As I open my eyes, I realize

Oh, we're living in a world gone mad
Oh, we're living in a world gone mad
9. Jigowatt (6:19)
Looking in to the mirror, do I like what I see
Hearing all of these voices inside of me
Where have I gone, what have I done, what will I do?
Too much undone, haven't carried through

If I had a chance would I do it again?
Or would I change my mind?

Looking back it seems unfair
Living life within your stare
Past is past there is no end
I'd trade my life to do it again

Time goes by that I can't change
Would I change the time?

Looking to the cards, the crystal ball
Can you tell me where I'll be?
Will it be a bright future
Or a short one for me?

Time goes by that I can't change
Would I change the time?

In a blink of an eye seems my life has gone by
I can't stop the wheels from rolling
Can't keep my fate from following through

Time goes by that I can't change
Would I change my mind?
10. From Here (6:20)
Outside there is a new day
The past is left to fade, fade away

A life long search for meaning
Still we don't know the way
Are we supposed to find an answer?
Tomorrow melts to yesterday

Is this the first day of the future?
Or just more of the same?

Where do we go from here? I don't know
Do we go from here, won't someone tell me

Confined in time we realize
We can never waste a drop
Worth more than gold it can't be sold
And obsessed we never stop
The path has come to a cross-road
Will tomorrow light the way

Is this the first day of the future?
Or just more of the same?

Where do we go from here? I don't know
Do we go from here, won't someone tell me
Won't someone tell me?
11. Shadow of Silence (5:12)
Keep your visions to the sky
Things could change in a blink of an eye
Some believe, some don't know
Is this the end of the world?

I've seen it in the good book
I've read it in black and white
Will there be judgment by day
Or will there be judgment by night?

If you choose to accept it
Then you'll know what to expect
If you don't really care then you'll suffer no regrets
No regrets

Here we stand in a shadow of silence
Here we stand in a shadow of silence

And no one seems to know, place or time
Only time will show, you and me
Can we forsee the future, will we all agree?
The sun will rise tomorrow, then we'll see

I've heard it said, "live for today and not tomorrow"
Because the future's been foretold
Is this the light at the end of the tunnel?
Or have I been left in the cold?

I saw an angel crying to me
as her eyes filled with memories
of the day
