"Illusions (Interlude)"

I've come to terms with the fact that nothing is what it seems...
What you've been taught is that who you are isn't quite good enough
You know you need to be slightly more than, bigger than, brighter than, smarter than, slimmer than, fatter than, richer than how you are at the moment
It's just some idea that sometime in the future you can be better than how you are right now
But it's 2 precise ideas that you've accumulated and that you've been fed
So if you look happy with who you are
It's actually good news because you're not who you think you are
(This life is an illusion)
Who you think you are, is who you think you are
