Lyrics:

Illusion:

In a forest known as heartbreak

In a clearing in the wood

‘Cross a pathway called confusion

Toward the garden of delight

 

You’ll reach the river of desire

And meekly try and cross it

While the valley of love

Keeps avoiding you

Because it’s only an illusion

Only an illusion

 

Upon the hill of high ideals

You begin to wonder if it’s real

You are reaching sleep’s oasis

You begin to wonder how you feel

 

But it happens so quickly

It doesn’t fit into your scenes

Tossin’ and turnin’

The star of so many scenes

It’s only an illusion

It’s only an illusion

 

It’s only an illusion

 

 

Lyrics:

Illusion / Masquerade

A masquerade of dancing shadows

Appear before me

Through my mystic window

And soon to be seen

I saw presented

Became a vision that

I saw resented

 

I stood and watched

Its image changing

The unseen hand was rearranging

And all the time I wondered

How did it wind

 

Slowly, surely it unfolded

Its simple lines just as

A pole wind told it

A temporary revolution

My problems rose and fell

With a lapse of illusion

 

My mind was telling me, don’t fight it

It’s just a hazard in the night

Don’t do those

Who’ve lost their way

It’s a masquerade

 

Slowly, surely it unfolded

Its simple lines just as

A pole wind told it

A temporary revolution

My problems rose and fell

With a lapse of illusion

 

My mind was telling me, don’t fight it

It’s just a hazard in the night

Don’t do those

Who’ve lost their way

It’s a masquerade

 

Masquerade, it’s a masquerade

Masquerade, a hazard in the night

Masquerade, don’t want no revolution
