about

Also appeared on the 2008 indietracks compilation. Title suggested by Tom John, I think?

lyrics

I met a girl, and her eyes shone
I became convinced she was the one
my hopes were high, but it manifested
that she simply was not interested
I didn't let myself get downhearted
I went to the library, and got started
I learned answer to every question
and the power of suggestion

I gazed at her and repeated some well rehearsed lines
her eyes clouded over, and now she's mine
I know this isn't love, this is hypnosis
but I can't figure out how to reverse the process

now our relationship is the best
but I feel slightly guilty nonetheless
I know I've got her under false pretenses
but she should have kept up her psychic defenses
I'm a bad person, I know I've trapped her
I wish I'd read the final chapter
so I went back to see what I'd missed
I saw the librarian, and couldn't resist...

I gazed at her and repeated some well rehearsed lines
her eyes clouded over, and now she's mine
I know this isn't love, this is hypnosis
but I can't figure out how to reverse the process

so now there are two; I must keep them apart
I control their minds but not their hearts
their paths finally crossed, we were watching a band..
I lost them both when I clapped my hands
how was I to know the spell wouldn't linger
if I started to applaud or clicked my fingers?
so I learned my lesson, and I started to cry
until the lead singer caught my eye...

I gazed at her and repeated some well rehearsed lines
her eyes clouded over, and now she's mine
I know this isn't love, this is hypnosis
but I can't figure out how to reverse the process
