The Grand Illusion by Styx

Wishing secretly you were a star?

But don’t be fooled by the radio
The TV or the magazines
They show you photographs of how your life should be
But they’re just someone elses fantasy
So if you think your life is complete confusion
Because you never win the game
Just remember that it’s a grand illusion
And deep inside we’re all the same.
We’re all the same …

… ‘America’ spells competition, join us in our blind ambition
Get yourself a brand new motor car
Someday soon we’ll stop to ponder what on earth is this spell we’re under
We made the grade and still we wonder who the hell we are

What did Simon Cowell say this week?
“Create the hype, but don’t ever believe it.”

Now get back to training and perfect that jump shot! Or you will be eating someone else’s hype.
