What is it that turns you on to the illusion of power?
This thing that grabs you by the heart
And makes you want to tear things down
There is no reason why I should need all this power,
But if you cross me now,
I'm gonna tear your whole world down

The illusion of power, things that I feel, seem so real,
The illusion of power

I can't get the emotional thing straight in my head,
Everything I love dies too soon, or is already dead
Don't stand too close I spit and breathe fire,
Anything I've got now you cannot desire

You want to be my friend, I promise you nothing,
Nothing I can give you, nothing I can do for you,
I'm being chased by the sins of my past and it's killing me now,
Killing me now

The illusion of power, things that I feel, seem so real,
The illusion of power
The illusion of power, it's already set signed and sealed,
The illusion of power

Fool, you're caught in a complex catacomb
Of your own inadequcies and pitiful weaknesses,
Your soul secretes insecurity
So you live on the reflection side of the mirror,
You're terrified of true power
You Fear

I can tell you stories of my
Shaded past and I can
Drag you down into the
Depths of my soul

The illusion of power, things that I feel, seem so real,
The illusion of power
The illusion of power, it's already set signed and sealed,
The illusion of power

Why don't you come closer, promise a story I will tell, yeah,
I'll save you from your dreams, yeah
I'll save you from your dreams
