“We, most of us, hide behind illusions and are afraid of the change we’d face in others if we finally unveiled,” says Lachi. “However, the tune is hopeful, as it points out that maybe it wouldn’t be so bad.” The video for “Illusion”
"As a legally blind, black female that, let's face it, acts white, is a tomboy and acts like she's not blind, I've encountered an intense amount of resistance from the world around me. My songs are all about growth, struggles, life-lessons, empowerment, poetry and strength. I don't think the topics will change over time, as I have always been a person of the earth. If I have an intense experience, be it love or hate, it's met with poetry, reality and depth. That's my inspiration - my life."
