Your love is like a calm ocean
There's no commotion in you
Take me down to your deepest parts
I'll stay right here with you

This feels like a vacation
Doin' notihin' with you
Gettin' high drinkin' suicides
I'll stay up here with you

Fell into a bed of gold
Never ever let your heart grow cold
Sleeping girl on the screen
Asleep like a peace frog lost in a dream

Hologram girl
You're just an illusion
Hologram girl
You're just an illusion in my world
But lately, lately I see you

You took me into the garden
I'm takin' pictures of you
We've got no money and they won't let us in
So I'll stay out here with you

Walkin' through a museum
Watercolors in bloom
You destroyed your turquoise ring
I'll glue it back together for you

Fell into a bed of gold
Never ever let your heart grow cold
Sleeping girl on the screen
Asleep like a peace frog lost in a dream

Hologram girl
You're just an illusion
Hologram girl
You're just an illusion in my world
But lately, lately I see you

You're just an illusion in my world
You're just an illusion in my world
But lately, lately I see you

Hologram girl
You're just an illusion in my world
Hologram girl
You're just an illusion in my world
Hologram girl
You're just an illusion in my world
Hologram girl
You're just an illusion in my world

    My InterpretationI have three interpretations of this song.

    First, the singer is in a relationship. The relationship is slowly falling apart and this song is the singer realizing it should end. He talks about how she is calm like the ocean and how they were able to tell each other anything. Also, he tries to keep up with her lifestyle, "Gettin' High drinkin' suicides I'll stay up here with you." The bridge is the singer hoping for the girl to remain innocent as stated in the first fragment; however he is a ware of her faults. Which leads us to the chorus, his once perfect girl is simply an illusion in his hopes of his once perfect relationship. The singer repairing the turquoise ring represents how hard he is lingering on to this once perfect girl. Then the chorus is sung one more time and he then continues to repeat "You're just an illusion in my world." This, in my opinion, is when the singer is coming to terms with the fact that his once dream girl is gone and will remain a simple Hologram in his head.

    Second, the singer is simply talking about his lover and how she is so perfect that she feels like an illusion. However, he then sums it up with "But lately, lately I see you" to prove her existence.

    Finally, the singer is in a trance imagining this amazing girl or had a dream of said girl. Now this can lead to two things: 1.) He snaps out of trance/dream and realizes this perfect girl is "...just an illusion." 2.) He snaps out of the trance/dream and sees the girl later on.

    General CommentTurquoise ring" totally a reference to "all of the turquoise jewelry you seek" in Egyptian Robe from Fortress.
