Illusion And Dream

Poets Of The Fall

   Look in my eyes I'll make you see we're drifting aimlessly
   Blind in a world of make believe

Instrumental: G#m C#m B F#

Verse 2:
Hear them sing their songs off key and nod like they agree
Buying the needs to be discreet

   I've got no hand in matters worldly, I hardly care at all
   What's going on fails to concern me 'cause I'm locked behind my wall
   But you know what drives me out
   Out of my mind ooh

   It's whatever makes you see, makes you believe
   And forget about the premonition you need to conceive
   The images they sell are Illusion and Dream
   In other words dishonesty

Instrumental * 2

Verse 3:
If I speak ill please, humour me. Won't rant on endlessly
Just thought I'd try to make you see

It doesn't solve a thing to dress it in a pretty gown
A stone will not need you to guess if you're still going to drown
So you know what drives me out
Out of my mind, oh



Middle eight:
   So can you name your demon? Understand it's scheming
   I raise my glass and say "Here's to you"
   Can you chase your demon? Or will it take your freedom?
   I raise my glass and say "Here's to you"
Bridge (lyrics from the first one)
Chorus * 2

Outro: E F# repeats and fades
