"Illusions" as written by Ryan Cabrera and John Rzeznik....
Middle of the night and it's gettin' so hard to breathe
You can't sleep, can't think, can't hardly dream
Do you feel what the world wants you to be?

Open your eyes and just see what the world is
Open your mind and your free
There's more in this world than we see

Just leave these illusions behind
Run with me
If all of the things that you thought you would be
Pass you by

We'll find what we need in our lives
We'll find what we need in our lives

I spent a lifetime hoping it would come to me
Gettin' lost in the lies I believed
We're covered by a mask that we think is our sin
But never realize that the truth is within

Open your eyes and just see what the world is
Open your eyes and your free
There's more in this world than we see

Just leave these illusions behind
Run with me
If all of the things that you thought you would be
Pass you by

We'll find what we need in our lives
We'll find what we need in our lives
And what are you hiding from?

Is it safe there inside your walls?
'Cause your chance is bound to come
If you're strong enough to live at all

We'll find what we need in our lives
We'll find what we need in our lives

Open your eyes and just see what the world is
Open your mind and you're free
There's more in this world than we see

Just leave these illusions behind
Run with me
If all of the things that you thought you would be
Pass you by

We'll find what we need in our lives
We'll find what we need in our lives
