The lyrics for “It’s All Illusion” are here.
Any fans of the poet T. S. Eliot will recognise the phrase “a face to meet the faces that you meet”, taken from his poem “The Lovesong of J. Alfred Prufrock”:
“There will be time, there will be time
To prepare a face to meet the faces that you meet…”
I think Eliot has articulated so concisely and yet descriptively a phenomena that we all experience and perpetuate ourselves: we put on a face to the world that does not necessarily reflect what is really going on in our minds and hearts. In the age of Facebook and social media this is especially the case: we can be selective, picking and choosing what we want the world to see and believe about ourselves.
