Biography

Illusion 33 (www.ill33.com and www.myspace.com/illusion33) landed a choice gig in 2001, when it was hand picked and contracted by Guitar Centers to play at in-store grand opening celebrations nationwide in 2001 and 2002. On the heels of the national exposure garnered as Guitar Centers’ “house band,” Illusion 33 was added to the lineup on the Van’s Warped Tour in 2002-2003, and also landed slots at the Fashion Expo, Orange Blossom Festival, Rock for Tots and Wolfstock. Rockin’ together since 2000, Jesse Bennett (guitar/vocals), Jason Stoddard (bass guitar/vocals) and K.C. Carter (drums) bring down the house at live shows with their in-your-face, heart pumping, high-energy performance.

Lyrics

18 Shades

Written By: Illusion 33

VERSE 1

All things considered rainy days out not so bad
With one exception this intervention has to pass

BRIDGE

Maybe it’s not all black and white
should have told me when I was wrong or right
What if we felt the same than these things would never change
Maybe it’s not how it should have been
shouldn’t have to tell you to stop when
Why did it end this way your 18 shades of grey (18 shades)
Your 18 shades of grey

CHORUS

It’s not like the walls could crumble down today
It’s not like your screams would make a sound any way
All things considered

VERSE 2

I ask the questions with an impression of a childhood, a childhood dream
I hold the answers pieces of the puzzle but you, ya hold the key

BRIDGE

Maybe it’s not all black and white
should have told me when I was wrong or right
What if we felt the same than these things would never change
Maybe it’s not how it should have been
shouldn’t have to tell you to stop when
Why did it end this way your 18 shades of grey (18 shades)
Your 18 shades of grey

CHORUS

It’s not like the walls could crumble down today
It’s not like your screams would make a sound any way
It’s not like the walls could crumble down today
All things considered!

BRIDGE/OUTRO

Maybe it’s not how it should have been, shouldn’t have to tell to stop when
Why did it end this way, your 18 shades of grey
Your 18 shades !!!
your18 shades, 18 shades, your 18 shades of grey
18 shades, your 18 shades, 18 shades, your 18 shades of grey

My Heart

Written By: Illusion 33

VERSE 1

So many things I feel you to say to me
I write it down you put it aside, and throw it away
You won’t deal with, it today, tomorrow’s the same shit every different day
Don’t let it fade, I must be crazy, let me out cause, my heart is screaming’

CHORUS

I must be crazy, do it to me again
Don’t try to catch me, do it to me again
I must be crazy, do it to me again
Don’t try to catch me, my heart screams

VERSE 2

Can anyone hear me it feels, like your not listening to a word I say?
Let him fall, don’t try to catch me, let me out cause, my heart is screaming’

CHORUS

I must be crazy, do it to me again
Don’t try to catch me, do it to me again
I must be crazy, do it to me again
Don’t try to catch me, my heart screams…

BRIDGE 1

Let him fall, my heart
You could have missed me, my heart
Let him fall, my heart… Screams…

BUILD-UP

My heart screams, my screams,
Do it to me again
Do it to me again
Do it to me again
Do it to me again
My heart screams…

BRIDGE 1

Let him fall, my heart
You could have missed me, my heart
Let him fall, my heart… Screams…

CHORUS

I must be crazy, do it to me again
Don’t try to catch me, do it to me again
I must be crazy, do it to me again
Don’t try to catch me, my heart screams…

Tragedy

Written By: Illusion 33

VERSE 1

So today, when I fall, my actions seem to stall
Will I break myself in to, this tragedy
You shut me out, a couple dances away
You choke me out, as I lay, in this bed that I made

CHORUS

No sense of direction
(your shutting me out your keeping me out your pushing me)
A passing moment of clarity. Break down to faded pictures
(my head goes round and round and round my head it goes)
Misguided tragedy

VERSE 2

It’s a cure, whats to fear, the dawn is approaching
I cage myself in and put up the walls
In one last breath you specify to me
To justify what it is, what the truth can be

CHORUS

No sense of direction
(your shutting me out your keeping me out your pushing me)
A passing moment of clarity. Break down to faded pictures
(my head goes round and round and round my head it goes)
Misguided tragedy

BRIDGE

(you turn my words to stone) I couldn’t be a part of this
(you turn my words to stone) it was A turning page for the next
(you turn my words to stone) I couldn’t see through this
(you turn my words to stone) You say you did this all for me

CHORUS

No sense of direction
(your shutting me out your pushing me out your keeping me)
A passing moment of clarity. Break down to faded pictures
(my head goes round and round and round my head it goes)
Misguided tragedy
No sense of direction
(your shutting me out your pushing me out your keeping me)
A passing moment of clarity. Break down to faded pictures
(my head goes round and round and round my head it goes)
Misguided tragedy

OUTRO

Your shutting me out your pushing me out your keeping me
Your shutting me out your pushing me out your keeping me
