"A Life Of Illusion" as written by and Joseph F. Walsh Joseph F Walsh....
Sometimes, I can't help but feeling that I'm
Living a life of illusion
And oh, why can't we let it be
And see through the hole in this wall of confusion
I just can't help but feeling I'm living a life of Illusion

Pow, right between the eyes
Oh how nature loves her little surprises
Wow, it all seems so logical now
It's just one of her better disguises
And it comes with no warning, nature loves her little surprises
Continual crisis

Hey, don't you know it's a waste of your day
Caught up in endless solutions
That have no meaning
Just another hunch, based upon jumping conclusions
Backed up against a wall of confusion
Caught up in endless solutions
Living a life of illusion

    General CommentIt basically means "Relax."

    He speaks of confusion in life and of natural "disasters" that we seek to remedy, and we end of cornered in confusion with nowhere to go. If only we would relax and not worry about nature, just accept that some things must be, no matter how "horrible" we feel they are (mass death), they are part of nature keeping things in check.

    ... If we mess with it, we may live longer and have a higher population. But have you not heard that we "can't save them all." We need to accept that we are nothing more than any other animal and our time of extinction will come... Just relax and enjoy the ride, cause if you're not enjoying it, what the hell are you going through all this BS for?

    Relax.

    General CommentY'know, I've known who Joe Walsh is since i was about 6, but I've never really listened to his solo stuff (apart from Rocky Mountain Way and Turn To Stone) - now there's all these great songs that I suddenly realise are his..

    Not that it has anything to do with this song, but noone pulls off yellow/black polka-dot pants like Joe :D

    General CommentThis song is about accidentally getting your girlfriend pregnant.

    The illusion is that there's a point to all the social climbing and effort that we go through to find love, when Nature is really just coming up with a way to get us to have babies.

    POW right between the eyes. Oh How Nature loves her little surprises.
