Lyrics:

Welcome to the grand illusion
Come on in and see what's happening
Pay the price get your tickets for the show
The stage is set, the band starts playing
Suddenly your heart is pounding
Wishing secretly you were a star
But don't be fooled by the radio
The T.V. or the magazines
They'll show you photographs
Of how your life should be
But they're just someone else's fantasy
So if you think your life is complete confusion
Cause you never win the game
(Cause your neighbors got it made)
Just remember that it's a grand illusion
And deep inside we're all the same
America spells competition
Join us in our blind ambition
Get yourself a brand new motor car
But someday soon we'll stop to ponder
What on Earth's this spell we're under
We made the grade and still we wonder
Who the Hell we are!
