The eleventh track of the Rainbow's End album by Hollow Water

lyrics

Illusions and Delusions
By Alan Cookson Hollow Water 2015

However you view it we were up against it,
The lies and deception were not an exception
Evasion and confusion. Illusions & Delusions
There's no getting round it, the tricks just compound it,
Falsehoods, distortions had got out of proportion,
Illusions & Delusions. Evasion and confusion.
Time we wised up to the deceit and the fiction,
Of so many ruses but we weren't the losers.
Evasion and confusion. Illusions & Delusions

CLARITY CERTAINTY HONESTY SIMPLICITY REALITY

Misapprehension or deliberate intention,
To fool and confuse us, nonplus and bemuse us,
Evasion and confusion. Illusions & Delusions
To suffer in silence or offer defiance,
For things we went through that were plainly not true?
Illusions & Delusions Evasion and confusion.
Through our adventure we'd hoped for some treasure,
But the valuable lesson was insight's impression
Evasion and confusion. Illusions & Delusions

CLARITY CERTAINTY HONESTY SIMPLICITY REALITY

We realised quickly the illusions were strictly,
Designed to confuse us, frustrate and bemuse us,
Evasion and confusion. Illusions & Delusions
We soon got to see through the fake optical fraud,
The intriguing bow that malfunctioned though,
Illusions & Delusions Evasion and confusion.
We faced down our challenge, we used our knowledge,
To leap all the hurdles and find the light portal.
Evasion and confusion. Illusions & Delusions

CLARITY CERTAINTY HONESTY SIMPLICITY REALITY
