"Season of Illusions" as written by and Mira Aroyo....
Obliterate the Sunday you've been cherishing all week
Obliterate the Sunday, he's a pleasure you can keep
I thought you'd let me speak today
But Esperanto's out of date
It's just another Sunday
Now Top of the Pops is dead

And if the morning gets you down
And then the evening lets you down
Obliterate the Sundays, fair play

Obliterate the Sunday
Just keep your phone awake
Supposing wrong intentions won't make it easier to wake

A season of illusions
A pocket full of doubts
A night of fading stars and a legacy of clouds

Obliterate the Sunday
The glass is out of reach
The heat was low, relief, you'll find a palm tree in your sleep

Your hiding for months
Dodging the seas
You spent the day scheming
And your a Houdini
Train has pulled out
Light has pulled in
A chance of escape
Come right up the street

Obliterate the Sunday
You've been cherishing all week
Obliterate the Sunday
He's a pleasure you can keep

Season of illusions
Pocket full of doubts
Night of fading stars and a legacy of clouds

And if the morning gets you down
And then the evening lets you down
Obliterate the Sunday, fair play

[Repeat: 3X]
Your hiding for months
Dodging the seas
You spent the day scheming
And your a Houdini
Train has pulled out
Light has pulled in
A chance of escape
Come right up the street

    General CommentI'm sure that the lyrics are off a little. Or, at least misspelled if nothing else.
    It wouldn't be "And your a houdini" because that doesn't make any sense. Likely, it's "And you're a houdini".

    Just wanted to point that out since R-Dot-Yung mentioned no one else was commenting. I don't know what else to say as I don't understand what the song actually means.

    General CommentWell, im not as concerned with the songs meaning as much as i am the way it makes me feel when i listen to it...

    But if i had to guess, Obliterating the Sunday for the character is the act of using her boy toy who bows at her every whim, when she's in a bad mood or facing rejection/dissapointment...

    When shit comes her way, she can always Obliterate the sunday to try and make herself happy

    makes sense to me, haha

    General CommentAll together I think this song is about a girl having feelings about a boy but it's a very confusing situation and she has doubts. As far as the whole "obliterate the Sunday you've been cherishing all week" I think it may be refering to time the two people spent together that just so happened to be on a Sunday and she maybe can't get it off of her mind and it was a big deal to her.

    General Comment100% CORRECT lyrics.



    SEASON OF ILLUSIONS

    obliterate the sunday you've been cherising all week
    obliterating sunday is a pleasure you can keep
    you thought you'd learn new speak today but esperanto's out of date
    it's just another sunday, now top of the pops is dead
    and if the morning gets you down and then the evening lets you down,
    obliterating sunday's fair play

    obliterate the sunday, just keep your phone away
    exposing wrong intentions won't make it easier to wake
    a season of illusions
    a pocketful of doubts
    a night of fading stars and a legacy of clouds
    obliterate the sunday. the black sea's out of reach,
    a heatwave's no relief, you'll find a palm tree in your sleep

    you're hiding from answers, dodging the sea
    you spend the day scheming, you're no Houdini
    train has pulled out, light has pulled in
    you're chasing escape you can't buy on the street

    obliterate the sunday you've been cherising all week
    obliterating sunday is a pleasure you can keep
    a season of illusions
    a pocketful of doubts
    a night of fading stars and a legacy of clouds
    and if the morning gets you down and then evening lets you down
    obliterating sunday's fair play

    you're hiding from answer, dodging the sea
    you spend the day scheming, you're no Houdini
    train has pulled out, light has pulled in
    you're chasing escape you can't buy on the street

    you're hiding from answer, dodging the sea
    you spend the day scheming, you're no Houdini
    train has pulled out, light has pulled in
    you're chasing escape you can't buy on the street

    you're hiding from answer, dodging the sea
    you spend the day scheming, you're no Houdini
    train has pulled out, light has pulled in
    you're chasing escape you can't buy on the street

    General CommentI really like these lyrics. I think she just wants to spend a Sunday with somebody who is making excuses of being too busy ("just keep your phone away"). She wants this person to blow off, or "obliterate" their Sunday. This person spends their Sundays chasing "a night of fading stars and a legacy of clouds." They should stop making excuses ("you're hiding from answer, dodging the sea ").

    General CommentIt sounds to me like someone is feeling extremely trapped within their own life. But everything seems to point to it being their fault and any "escape" would be an illusion because they're the ones trapping themselves.

    My InterpretationI agree with Rictus, but specifically, this song is about the hangover you get after a really big Friday and Saturday night out. The alcohol abuse is a response to being trapped.
