about

Hypnotized Again is a poignant slice of social commentary over a stone-cold groove that sees the band returning to the classic “roots reggae” sound that many of their long-time fans know and love them for.

lyrics

Chorus

Hypnotized again
It feels like we’ve been

Hypnotized again
Its feel like were

Verse one

Has you mind become the mirror
Of that face that you left behind
Is it the mystery or the madness
The illusion’s all that matters

In the magic we fell into a dream
And the radio played the static
And the static played the people
And the people play the fool
And a fool always forgets but reality still remains


Chorus

Hypnotized again
It feels like we’ve been

Hypnotized again
I feel like we’re

Hypnotized Again

Verse Two

When the truth become a problem
For those men who hold the keys
Human life it looses value
Crash the bird into the sea

And in the chaos
I started to believe
All the lies we have seen


Bridge

But when the people play the fool
And the fool plays the game
But the game we you’ll never win
And nobody takes the blame

When the people know
But they cannot say
And the truth is burnt
And the people slain

Chorus

It feels like we’re
Hypnotized again
It feel like

Bridge

In the magic we fell into a dream
And the radio played the static
And my memories
Erased just like a tape
And all the evidence we need

But when the people play the fool
And the fool plays the game
But the game we youll never win
And nobody takes the blame

When the people know
But they cannot say
And the truth is burnt
And the people slain

But when the people play the fool
When the people know
And the fool plays the game
And the truth is burnt
