Illustration is a charming melancholy song delving into fear, anxiety and not being ready for changes. It explores coping mechanisms and escapism and draws you into a whole new world.

I pictured drawing

Creating a little world

We'd go explore in

Ride on the backs of these flying guitars

And dance on piano paths

Just free flowing oh how easy it is to forget here

 

And I imagine

This place I built is safe away

From the maddening crowds

Growing ever hungry for more of what you have 

And its turning them into a greed inflicted race that would feed on your own flesh 

How easy it is to forget here

 

Am I safe here 

In my own little world

Are we free dear

To hide away from the dirt they spread

Buried deep in their fingertips

And I'd like to

Live as an illustration

Oh I'd like to

Live as an illustration

 

I see it clearly

You and me sailing around through all the watery seams

The lapping of the waves upon a proud bow

One that we earnt somehow in this fictious day dream 

Don't want to wake up now

 

I pinch myself each day

Wondering if this sphere we're hiding in will fade away

Please don't burst this bubble no not just yet 

I want to savour it

Don't wanna wake up from this daydream 

Don't make me yet

 

And am I safe here 

In my own little world

And are we free dear

To hide away from the dirt they spread

Buried deep in their fingertips

And I'd like to

Live as an illustration

Oh and I'd like to

Live as an illustration

 

And am I safe here 

In my own little world

And are we free dear

To hide away from the dirt they spread

Buried deep in their fingertips

And I'd like to

Live as an illustration

Oh and I'd like to

Live as an illustration

Oh and I'd like to

Live as an illustration
