Hypnotic

hypno, tick
hypno, tick
So hyp...notic
Like time melting away
Minutes drip into hours
Don't come back
Don't come back
This time

Staring into nothing
Thoughts swim and swirl
Around your skull
Wondering if it's better
To let go
So, hypnotic

Teach me what
Life is and how to be
Like you in every way
Gears turning
Slowly changing into
The one they need
To keep the world
Burning

Hypnotic
Hypnotic

Beat into my head
The chants to keep
Going on and on
Till the rhythm crumbles
War cries echo
Smoke in the air
And thousands shake the earth
Till the street rumbles

So, hypnotic

No thorns, no crowns
No suits, no kings
Just a heart
Beating for life
I'll take, I'll give
I'll fight, I'll die
Till the life
Shines in your eyes

It's so hypnotic
