Illusia - Lyrics & Backstory

Designed

To create

In the corner of your mind

A place you can relate to


Abide

By the rules and play your part

Confide

In the lies that guide your truth

Resigning

To this world of falling, tumbling, crumbling cries

Of humanity failing to prevent

The machine of lies


Leave your mind at the door

You’ve been here before


Welcome to Illusia

You can leave the truth behind

The story was written to choose you

You’re part of this illusion and so am I


Hallucinations

Sprinkled with fear

An inclination

To project what is here


Welcome to Illusia

With the blanket pulled over your eyes

The story was written to choose you

You’re part of this illusion and so am I


Leave your mind at the door

You’ve been here before


Welcome to Illusia

You can leave the truth behind

The story was written to choose you

You’re part of this illusion and so am I


Illusia - Backstory


This song came about when I was unhappy with another track I was working on for a longer time and decided to give up on that one. It started with a guitar part with a more prominent bass line I was noodling with and evolved into a song. The lyrics are tied to one of the more important developments in our present times which is a lack of consensus on an objective reality. Media, literature and influence overall has shaped views and perceptions on just about everything. We see the world not for what it is or personal experience, but largely influenced by what we read, watch, hear or learn from others and very often, this is misused by some to create a perception and acceptance of reality which is far from true. Social media has taken this ability to create a disconnect from reality to the next level and the effects are visible everywhere.


While writing the lyrics and recording vocals, my daughter Arina got involved in contributing suggestions and ended up singing one of the sections. This track turned to be a first father/daughter collab tracks which makes it extra special.
