"My Illusion"

Michael Lucas

I wake up in the morning
I hear the voices
The one everyone hears
The ones that say
I love you
I'm here for you
I won't leave you
Then I realize
It's all just an illusion

I walk down the street
And I see the people
The ones that want to help me
The ones that are there for me
I see their hands reaching to help me
I see their hearts
They are open and are full of love
They say, "I'm here for you"
Then I realize
It's all just an illusion

I go to bed at night
And I hear the sirens
I hear the screams
The screams of chained souls
I look in the mirror
And I see the eyes of a lost soul
Then I realize
It's not an illusion
