    Gruesome Comments:

    “‘Fatal Illusions is a track that was truly co-written by Dan, Gus and myself musically and it was a lot of fun to arrange everyone’s riffs while we put the song together. One of the coolest things about this new record, for me personally, is that the writing has become more and more of a team effort, which is invigorating and keeps things interesting for us. When looking at Spiritual Healing for inspiration, one of the more depressing realizations that I came to as far as the lyrics, was that many of the topics that DEATH were addressing back in 1990 are still major issues today. As everyone knows, mass shootings have reached epidemic proportions in this country and we felt that it was a very ‘death metal’ appropriate topic to tackle. This tune is more about the delusions that lead someone to commit this kind of violence; the mindset that would make someone take such a drastic and tragic course of action. Before anyone starts projecting their own politics on the song, this is not an anti or pro gun song. This is an anti-mass shooting song. And if you think that there’s anything controversial about that, you can fuck right off.”’

    Lyrics:

    Living, in constant fear, about to snap
    Believing all you see and hear, caught in their trap
    Hatred, drips from your every word
    Dictated and brainwashed to believe in the absurd

    Confused – in heart and mind
    Paranoia – makes you blind
    Violence – the only answer that you want to find

    So certain, in your convictions
    You can’t tell, fact from fiction

    Existing, in confusion
    Led astray by fatal illusions
    Lives brought to their conclusions
    Betrayed by fatal illusions
    Fatal illusions
    Fatal illusions

    Blinded by ideology
    Out of touch with reality
    Off the edge of insanity
    A pawn in their conspiracy

    Solo – Dan

    Fanatic, for years you fantasized
    Ecstatic now you finally take a life
    Bodies, lie bleeding, ignore the screams of pain
    One bullet left, to put through your own brain

    Confused – you see signs everywhere
    Paranoia – fear things that aren’t there
    Violence – committed with an empty stare

    So certain, in your convictions
    You can’t tell, fact from fiction

    Existing, in confusion
    Led astray by fatal illusion
    Life brought to a conclusion
    Betrayed by fatal illusions
    Fatal illusions
    Fatal illusions
