Illusions Lyrics By Brymo

You carry boyi go yonder, you say he no go oh

Slavers boku round town hin brother tell am oh

Stand for your ground, make you no hurry follow go

Them dey sell people troway, my brother no go oh

The people them wey go river never return oh

Them say na mami water carry everybody go oh

For full moon, papa go farm he never return oh

Them say na the forest carry am swallow oh

Listen boyi, life no balance at all oh

You go place you no know, you no go return oh

Boyi feeling true, him heart dey beat for the road oh

Him fate na to follow them, follow journey go ah!
