Sometimes I can't help the feeling that I'm
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
Well, I just can't help the feeling
I'm living a life of illusion

Pow, right between the eyes
Oh, how nature loves her little surprises
And wow, it all seems so logical now
It's just one of her better disguises
And it comes with no warning
And nature loves her little surprises
A 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
Endless solutions
Backed up against a wall of confusion

I'm living a life of illusion
I'm living a life of illusion
I'm living a life of illusion
