about

"The Mirage" is a lyrically introspective acoustic folk song performed in the style of classic '60-'70's singer songwriters with a deep male lead vocal accompanied by an angelic female bg vocal with atmospheric keys/synth.

lyrics

Chorus:
The mirage is ridin' on the sun
It’s a song that needs to be sung
It’s been this way since it begun
The mirage is ridin' on the sun

Verse 1:
Off in the distance what could it be?
Wonders as far as the eye can see
Freedom, happiness, beauty, and love
Phantoms of what could be to come

Chorus:

Verse 2:
We affect how we behave  
But I know that I am a slave
To the chemicals coursing through my veins
Concocted by firings in my brain

Chorus:

Bridge:
One thing I know is time’s not moving slow
As I try to go with the flow
But I still believe, though it’s hard to conceive
The fantasy is really there to receive

Chorus:

Gotta do what needs to be done
The mirage is ridin' on the sun
