Hell and Highwater EP

1.
In the mirror, you look bad Well tell me something I haven't heard Well you've seen better days And you better change your ways CHORUS: Broken mirror, broken glass But you can't destroy your past Hate yourself and you don't know why Those pictures never die The six signs of dead hair The seven signs of ageing Inject your face with poison Subject your dog to Internet porn That was a change for the worse Back-to-front, in reverse Crop, rotate, negativize But that camera never lies So just say you were drunk As if that was good enough But I see that boy at night Wake up with a troubled mind CHORUS repeat
2.
My Valerian 04:30
Sometimes I close my eyes and contemplate I see the actors take the stage Oh my Valerian In time revisiting the greatest scenes The tragedy and comedy Oh my Valerian And now I'm searching in a foreign breeze I'm drinking to the memories Of my Valerian So high I'm following the vapour trails I'm waving as the ship sets sail With my Valerian Back then I couldn't find the words to say Or justify the games I'd play I sold you down the line But still the letters and the photographs the wicked things that made me laugh We broke the rules again Reborn they stick around to watch you wake I kick around the summer days I'm losing track of time So high I'm following the vapour trails I'm waving as the ship sets sail With my Valerian Valerian...
3.
So blue As far as I can see So cold Just footprints and me CHORUS Dry you eyes now Dry your eyes so you can see You'll just have to try now You'll just have to try and then we'll see I told you That I'd have to leave I told you But you wouldn't believe CHORUS repeat My home Is where I can be My song Is all I can sing And half of the time when we speak our minds It's just an excuse to be cruel, unkind Watching the snow it falls to ground Covers the tracks with the softest sound One last look as I slip away One last look, no more words to say...
4.
In a time of war Shaken to the core Where the worm had grown Bitter fruit disowned We ignored the signs We had closed our minds They tell us it's too late Tell us whom to hate I will take a stand They won't force my hand In the cold clean air No better time to dare Taking to the street Open wounds so deep Feel the deadly thrill Heartbeats race, then still CHORUS: TV dinners, missing winners Get your war on, boys All the action, big distraction, Get your war on, boys TV dinners, saints and sinners Get your war on, boys Small screen action, big distraction Get your war on, boys Hi, it looks like you're trying to write a letter! Would you like me to ?!@"$@!@£... v1 & v4 repeat CHORUS repeat x2

Feline's final EP before they met a wretched demise.

about

The Feline Dream Brighton, UK

The Feline Dream were a collaboration between David 'Deakie' Davis and Nicholas 'Mermaid' Carlisle, a pair of gingers from County Down.

The band met a wretched demise in December 2003, however due to the invention of the phonograph by Édouard-Léon Scott de Martinville on 25th March 1857, their music can still be enjoyed today.
