Coming From Under Hypnosis


Coming from under hypnosis,
Can leave legs to wobble just a bit.
And,
One's mind to feel...
Out of it.

Coming from under hypnosis,
One can be diagnosed misfit.
And...
Nonconformist.

'What has happened to the world with it done? '
Say the ones coming out of hypnosis.
'And why does division stuns my vision? '
Say the ones coming out of hypnosis.

'The quality of life has been downsized.
And where are those values now denied? '

Coming from under hypnosis,
One can feel out of it quick.
And coming from under hypnosis,
One can be diagnosed as misfit.
Coming from under hypnosis...
Nonconformist is the label they are stuck with.

Coming from under hypnosis.
'What has happened to the world with it done? '
Coming from under hypnosis.
One can feel out of it quick.
Coming from under hypnosis.
'And why does division stuns my vision? '
Coming from under hypnosis,
One can be diagnosed as misfit.
Coming from under hypnosis...
Nonconformist is the label they are stuck with.

Coming from under hypnosis,
Those left stunned have nowhere to run.
Coming from under hypnosis,
Values once appreciated now are shunned.

Coming from under hypnosis.
'Who took my beliefs,
And fled? '
Coming from under hypnosis.
'Who took my beliefs,
And left them for dead? '

Coming from under hypnosis,
Without a notice to invoke.
One coming from under hypnosis,
Without a notice to provoke.
'Who took my beliefs...
And fled?
And without a notice to invoke.
Who took my beliefs...
And fled away,
Without a notice to provoke.'

Coming from under hypnosis,
One can be diagnosed misfit.
Coming from under hypnosis,
One is regarded and declared useless.

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
