I never thought I'd get to leaving Then they moved me out of town Gave me something to believe in Now I've turned my life around CHORUS: Waiting at the gates I had to settle down Industrial Estates On the edge of town Never had a better reason Never had a better plan I seen big men hangin' out in threesomes Big men driving round in vans CHORUS Never thought I'd get to leaving Then they moved me out of town Now I'm crazy at the weekends I'm crazy when I have the time CHORUS
2.
Beachcomber - wandering through sand and shingle A southern wind Blowing in from the ocean Overcast, where the land meets the sea Beachcomber Sifting through the finer fragments Still you take what you can, well I just want to tell you CHORUS(x2) One day we made A promise, just to break it So don't you say It got complicated Beachcomber Wandering through sand and shingle Vagabond, the only way to pass the time The broken sound Of voices drowning in the white noise Here I am, take my hand Pull me from the wreckage CHORUS repeat Now you're on your own
3.
The Feline Dream hidden in our eyes, it now seems right to be realised. No baby talk with the balls of wool, it's time to show just who is the fool. CHORUS: You have - one life - with this one life you have - trapped us - strapped us - Now it's time for you to die! Oh pretty pussies, are you ready to kill? We'll catch them bending when they're pouring the milk. A claw in the eye is worth two in the hand. Our fire will burn throughout the land. CHORUS repeat Bow Down to Your Leader! Yes, we have won! A New World Order should be fun. Swear I'm no fascist and I'm not deranged This is your promised messiah and she's ringing the change
4.
v.1 People speeding by they leave me stranded At a standstill in the rain I just sit and count the minutes passing But for me there's no loss and no gain v.2 Push and drive, so many ways to play now Feel the rush against my skin Maybe I will sit and watch the others Cars that sigh down doppler wind Squeeze the blood from the stone You have to get there on your own and there is no-one over the horizon Squeeze the blood from the stone You'll never make it on your own Dream until they find you with the cursor But you know your game is done
5.
I'll meet you at the station Platform number four There's nothing here to keep me anymore I started feeling crazy So many years ago (Back in 1984?) Ever since I let my baby go Speeding through the tunnels Changing at Cologne Leave behind the safety of my home But it's you and me together You and me alone The two of us forever on the run (Florian... Magalie...) Florian and Magalie I don't know what's wrong with me Florian and Magalie Do they know what's wrong with me? Wrong with me. Florian and Magalie

Hi! - I'm a fool, a defector, I'm a sinking boat. My eyes frighten children, stare madly from my hooded coat Another day, a week, another year. I can't control my ever growing fears Can't keep in contact with the outside world. It seems society would rather see our hero dead I do not know the words He's a people without pets That people feed each other With no need for silly vets I'm frightened of the telephone Can't you see his mind is sick? I tend to stutter He's a bloody lunatic Circle, give me comfort from the vicious square. Guide me, take me out into the open air I cast aside responsibility. So independent but I don't feel free Human emotions don't apply to me. Wish I could laugh some love or spit some hate with honesty I cannot care about myself He's a people without pets or any being With no need for silly vets I need to learn the rudiments Can't you see his mind is sick? of social living He's a bloody lunatic So, I get up, and I go to the window, and I catch sight of something soft and warm on the grass below. Somebody comes to retrieve the cat and it strikes me that, she's had a lifetime of practice with furballs... I feel so happy now the answer's clear. I've gone untouched by softness all these years My fingers itching now we're on the street. To touch the beards and hats and coats and cats of those I meet

Early morning make your way home Cross the motorway glowing alone Rays like crystal shine down from above Bathed in orange November sun

about

Feline's third EP of the 21st century, including a special remix by Jupiter Ace, and a selection of live recordings from 'Feline Week', when we played five gigs in one week in Belfast.

Handmade CD copies were originally sold in the Backbeat record shop on Belfast's Great Victoria Street.
The EP was reissued by Corruptuve Records in 2004, and then remastered in 2013 with three bonus tracks. Re-remastered again in 2020 for a loudness-normalised environment.

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.
