lyrics

ILLUSION

I know it's hard to tell how mixed up you feel,
Hoping what you need is behind every door
Each time you get hurt, I don't want you to change
Because everyone has hopes. You’re human after all
The feeling, sometimes wishing you were someone else
feeling as though you never belong
This feeling is not sadness, this feeling is not joy
I truly understand so, please don't cry now

Being like you are, well this is something else
Who would comprehend?
Some that do lay claim that divine purpose blesses them
Well that's not what I believe and it doesn't matter anyway
A part of your soul ties you to the next world
or maybe to the last, but I'm still not sure
What I do know is to us the world is different, as we are to the world
I guess you would know that

Please, don't go. I want you to stay
I'm begging you, please
Please, don't leave here
I don’t want you to hate for all the hurt that you feel
The world is just illusion trying to change you
Please, don't go. I want you to stay
I'm begging you, please
Please, don't leave here
I don’t want you to change for all the hurt that you feel
This world is just illusion always trying to change you

(the original version appears on the album "Judgement")
