"Illusion" as written by and Robert/samuel Brady....
How could I ever go back
Back to the life
Where I lived amongst the dead
Who have forgotten how to feel
And become slaves to memory
And wishful thinking
But your love has set me free
As you awaken every star
That has been sleeping
In the constellation of my soul
How could I go back to live amongst the dead
Those who imprisoned beauty
I never want to leave your arms
So I wait in hope for your embrace
Illusions of what I thought was love
Now I have clear sight to see
That I have left nothing behind

    General CommentThis song is all about the life before he new god.

    how could I ever go back...
    (to living the life he was brofe he had God)
    back to the life where i lived amongst the dead
    (the dead are those how are spiritual dead not complete without God)
    but your love has set me free
    (refering to Gods unfailing love and forgiveness)
    how could i go back to live amongst the dead
    those who imprisoned beauty
    (living a life where ppl refused to aknowlege that God exists.
    I never want to leave your arms so i wait in hope for your embrace
    (the embrace of God / being close to him)

    General CommentI think everybody's right. But some people can be wrong too. I have accepted the fact that it's about God, though at the same time it has to be a little bit more complicated than that. I mean, do you speak about God like this:
    I never want to leave your arms so i wait in hope for your embrace
    illusions of what i thought was love
    Okay, I do agree it might be a metaphor or such, but still, there has to be a reason why he makes it sound like it's about love, as in love for a girlfriend, or friend, whatever, everything but God.
    And I also think, that some of you should be a little more accepting. It's not like there's only one meaning or solution, we all see things in a different way.
    We're not searching the meaning this song has to the band, anyway, I'm still answering the question; What does this song mean to you?
    (Though quite off-topic now. er.)
    My thoughts about this song are rather divided. I guess that beyond everything it's about God, but if you watch more closely, there has to be a relationship on his mind.
    Or something like that.

    General CommentThe ending seems like him not regretting letting go of his past girlfriend. "illusions of what i thought was love
    now i have clear sight to see that i have left nothing behind." I'm probably way off though im not too good at ?interpretating? song meanings.

    General CommentHmm, maybe it has something to do with the fact that they are an openly Christian band.

    Again, you hit the nail on the head, concrete.
