Leniz & Henry - Illusions lyrics


ad
Eighty-four years old and he always travels with a backpack
Because he never knows where he's going to be tomorrow
And when I met him he said to me, "Where are you from?"
And I said, "New York"
He said, "Ah, New York, yes, that's a very interesting place
Do you know a lot of New Yorkers who keep talking about the fact
That they want to leave, but never do?"
And I said, "Oh, yes"
He said, "Why do you think they don't leave?
And I gave him different banal theories
He said, "Oh, I don't think it's that way at all"

I think that New York is the new model for the new concentration camp
Where the camp has been built by the inmates themselves
And the inmates are the guards
And they have this pride in this thing that they've built
They've built their own prison
And so they exist in a state of schizophrenia
Where they are both guards and prisoners
And as a result they no longer have
Having been lobotomized the capacity to leave the prison they've made
Or even to see it as a prison

And when I met him he said to me, "Where are you from?"
And I said, "New York"
He said, "Ah, New York, yes, that's a very interesting place
Do you know a lot of New Yorkers who keep talking about the fact
That they want to leave, but never do?"
And I said, "Oh, yes"
He said, "Why do you think they don't leave?
And I gave him different banal theories
He said, "Oh, I don't think it's that way at all"

Model for the new concentration camp
Where the camp has been built by the inmates themselves
And the inmates are the guards
And they have this pride in this thing that they've built
They've built their own prison
And so they exist in a state of schizophrenia
Where they are both guards and prisoners
And as a result they no longer have
Having been lobotomized the capacity to leave the prison they've made
Or even to see it as a prison
