Styx--'The Grand Illusion'

 

Welcome to the Grand illusion
Come on in and see what's happening
Pay the price, get your tickets for the show
The stage is set, the band starts playing
Suddenly your heart is pounding
Wishing secretly you were a star.

But don't be fooled by the radio
The TV or the magazines
They show you photographs of how your life should be
But they're just someone else's fantasy
So if you think your life is complete confusion
Because you never win the game
Just remember that it's a Grand illusion
And deep inside we're all the same.
We're all the same...

So if you think your life is complete confusion
Because your neighbors got it made
Just remember that it's a Grand illusion
And deep inside we're all the same.
We're all the same...

America spells competition, join us in our blind ambition
Get yourself a brand new motor car
Someday soon we'll stop to ponder what on Earth's this spell we're under
We made the grade and still we wonder who the hell we are

The Grand Delusion


Welcome to the grand delusion,
close your eyes, ignore what's happening,
all pay the price for your reality
The stage is set, head man starts playing,
suddenly your head is pounding

'cause his whole act's a con game


But you were fooled by the T. V. shows,
the computer screen, and alt-right magazines
They tell show you photographs of how your life will be,
but they're just showing you a fantasy,
because you tell yourself it's completely broken,
and you never win the game
Just remember that it's a Grand Delusion
wished you'd known you had it made
you had it made...

You view the world with complete confusion
because to you it's just a game
Just remember that it's just grand delusion
voted for a dick with fame

a dick with fame...

America spells fame and fortune
got ourselves a great big old clown show
Someday soon, it's long past due, you pulled the lever, now we're screwed
failed the grade, and you'll scream 'no, no no!'
