The Trances We’re In

How could anyone have believed in Hitler, I ask

How could anyone not I respond

Look at the trances we trap ourselves in


Beliefs cause the trances we ensnare ourselves in

With music it deepens the trances we’re in

Trances become locked in within


We do thoughtless things in the trances we’re in

Irrational and violent things

In those trances we find ourselves in


How do we wake up from the trances we’re in

By challenging the beliefs we believe in

That dispels the trances we’re in


Will there be someone who challenges what we believe in

There’s always someone with the strength within

To challenge the trances we fail to know we’re in
