More Analogue than EVER! (live in Belfarce)

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.
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
3.
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
4.
Breathing words upon the glass In a mist their meaning lost I want to call your name The more I try to make it clear The more I disappear There's nothing to be gained Out of focus, out of sight No way to win, no will to fight By day they leave no trace In all the roles they tried to fill They never saw the fool Who put them all to shame CHORUS: If I could fly Fly in the face I'll find you there Breath deep in the vapour trails If I could try Try to break free I'll find you there Breathing deep in the vapour trails Put the pieces in their place Body twisted into shape It's always been the same But I'm alone in all I do I get no help from you My work is done in vain CHORUS repeat Breathing words upon the glass In a mist their meaning lost I want to call your name
5.
Out here you see for miles Out here we touch the sky Out here the inside grows Out here where no-one knows ...Where we are... aah-aah... We can steal away No-one will see us go Leave the rest behind No-one need ever know Leave behind the grey We don't need them now And be with your own kind We're gonna show them how And when we're on our own You can take my hand That's when we feel at home Flying over land Forget your life before Forget all the rest You've come through that door We know what we like best Yes we'll grow wings and fly Heartbeat never dies Horizon stretches wide We start to turn the tide See them all... so far down below... The trees beneath so green Start to believe Rivers flow between Never want to leave Hiltops race below Heartbeat racing too See the sunset glow there's just me and you To end a perfect day And enter the night Your troubles melt away Better hold me tight
6.
Thrown away Oh so many things I didn't say Time delay All my experiences seem this way v.1 Picture a scene where your heart runs in Swathes of green and flowing golden Hungry light lifting you Through a swell of memory To a time when you were young v.2 Clutch at the straws that you can't quite reach Grasping fleeting shapes that meet Deep inside their tearing teeth An endless spiral you can feel Somewhere you've lost your way Wind whips past and you know this can't last Search for home But still I find myself here alone v.3 Through all these years so many tears A crashing flood of memory Sweeps frozen features frozen dreams Shattered shards that's all they seem A wealth of wasted time v.4 If I could fly through all I see I reach the ones that matter to me He's waiting there he's always been Arms outstretched and welcoming And I know that I've come home
7.
Out in the trees, under the starlight A tiny shiver, hold my hand tight A distant whisper, see the moon bright Almost always never there And every single one has gone now Look through my eyes, you never knew how Can't understand and can't remember But still the feelings linger on
8.
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
9.
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
10.
Feel a bit roughed up, feel a bit frightened Nearly pin it down some time Red sail action wake up in the wrong town Boy, I really get around Thunder ocean Thunder ocean Red sails take me, make me sail along Red sails, and a mast so tall Red sails Red sails Do you remember we another person Green and black and red and so scared Graffiti on the wall keep us all in tune Bringing us all back home Red sails Thunder ocean Red sails Sailor can't dance like you Red sail Red sail action Red sail Some reaction Action boy seen living under neon Struggle with a foreign tongue Red sails make him strong Action make him sail along Life stands still and stares The hinterland, the hinterland We're gonna sail to the hinterland And it's far far, far far far, far far far away Its a far far, far far far, fa da, da da

v.1 Two out of three ain't bad Until you're begging for another one And so I'm starting to grip your hand You know I'm never gonna let you run It's not that I'm hoping to hold you back I'd never try to keep you under my thumb Well, not as such... So hide those glances at strangers like you hide those scars You said that you were mine... CHORUS: ...but inside your head, A Different Story, another life to lead That's what you want: your "freedom" - how boring! - well, it isn't what you need v.2 So I'm the best that you've ever had? You call me on the telephone ("hello, it's me again") Making like you're so sad You're to-and-froing like a metronome (to/fro/to/fro) Is it that you're trying to drive me mad? Yeah, so then you won't be feeling so alone. I've seen you starting to run dear: you won't get far. You said that you were mine CHORUS repeat
12.
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

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.
