background
"Deep and dangerous, Hypnotised is all about passions running amok. A bit like life really" - Jim




lyrics
I can feel the whole world spinning around.
I'm losing ground.
I feel it every day.
And I can feel you coming inside out,
I'm losing touch with all reality.
I remember the look in your eyes,
The way that they pulled me inside,
All I've got now in my defence is my innocence,
I've been hypnotised.

I can hear the church bells ringing out.
Reminds me of some bright and sunshine day.
When all the pretty horses you would ride.
Would come right back to feel your energy.

I still remember the look in your eyes,
The way that they filled me inside.
All I've got now in my defence,
Is my innocence,
I've been hypnotised.

You know it won't be easy,
It's never easy.
I've been hypnotised,
It won't be easy.

So tell me what you think,
Do you think I'll sink Number one scapegoat?
I'm the missing link,
All I know I've been hypnotised.

It won't be easy.

If you've got a heart that burns inside,
Let me get inside let me tangle with the flames.
If you've got a light that burns inside.
The heat will rise and melt down once again.

I'm waiting for a sign, help me realign,
Maybe it's a sin I know but it's not a crime,
All I know, I've been hypnotised.

Maybe there's a way I can find a way,
Final hour, judgement day,
All I know, I've been hypnotised.

And then I realise.
