As you struggle slowly forward, I will pull you slowly downward
You can flounder in the darkness but you’ll never reach the light
You don’t need to know me because, you see, I know you—
You are living in my kingdom, you have given up your rights

You might be looking for Nirvana, you might be looking to escape the wheel
How ever many lives you could live, you are working down to me
If you find the void within yourself, you are in the void that is my soul
If you want to do it your own way, you are almost just like me—


      I am illusion, you think I don’t exist
      That I’m some figment from man’s superstitious past
      And you don’t defend yourself from dangers that aren’t real
      No, you don’t defend yourself from dangers that aren’t there


So look at me, you little worm! You are blind, you cannot see me
Because you’re crawling in the dirt that lies beneath my feet
In a moment I will crush you – ah, but first I will enjoy you
I will taunt you with your fate, for your spirit is my meat


      I am illusion, you think I don’t exist
      That I’m just some figment from man’s superstitious past
      And you don’t defend yourself from dangers that aren’t there
      No, you don’t defend yourself from dangers that aren’t there


All your brave atheistic tendencies and your humanist philosophies
These are notions that I feed you – and you swallow very well!
When you look into the mirror you will find me just behind your eyes
You may not believe in heaven, but I can promise you a hell!

      I am illusion, you think I don’t exist
      That I’m just some figment from man’s superstitious past...
