I felt your grip begin to fade
You kept me tied, blind and afraid
But then I broke you and saw
The look on your face said it all

So could you feel the way I felt
Did you kneel the way I knelt
Did you stand up and yell
Pleading for someone to help

Or listen to reason
Open your eyes
It's a wonder what you'll find with an open mind
You may be surprised
Yeah

Gotta get away from this illusion
For the sake of the world, this delusion
It's gotta, gotta, gotta go-ooh
Yeah-ooh

If the dark is just a thought
Then the light is in your mind
The lies we tell ourselves
Will ruin the world with time

Did you feel the way I felt
Did you kneel the way I knelt
Or did you look up and stare
Waiting for your acts or prayer

Won't you listen to reason.
Will you open your eyes
It's a wonder what you'll find with an open mind
You might be surprised
Yeah

Gotta get away from this illusion
For the sake of the world, this delusion
It's gotta, gotta, gotta go-ooh
Yeah-ooh

Gotta get away from this illusion
For the sake of the world, this delusion
It's gotta, gotta, gotta go-ooh

When is it enough
When will we all wake up
So look around
And see what's right before your eyes
No control beyond these skies

Gotta get away from this illusion
For the sake of the world, this delusion
It's gotta, gotta, gotta go-ooh
Yeah-ooh

Gotta get away from this illusion
For the sake of the world, this delusion
It's gotta, gotta, gotta go-ooh

    This song is indeed about an ex-atheist coming to reason with reality and asking the world to follow in his example and open their eyes and unchain themselves to see reality. You might have heard a sample of this song playing on the atheist experience show, perfect song for the program in my opinion.

    Indeed, the song is quite clearly about an ex theist (i would imagine christian based on american origins of the song). The song reminds me of matt dillahunty. The song makes such an important point though, it really is amazing what you can find with an open mind, to think about the universe without the pre conceived idea that god exists.
