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.

Track Name: Synthesizer Model 2
Track Name: Animal Daydreams
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
Track Name: Lull
Early morning
make your way home
Cross the motorway
glowing alone
Rays like crystal shine down
from above
Bathed in orange
Welcome the sun
Track Name: Electrolux
Eyeful earful mouthful mindful
High potential screaming light

woeful wasteful hurtful hateful
exponential screaming light


willful wishful wakeful wasteful
high potential screaming light


I will not see anymore
I will not hear anymore
There has to be something more

high potential high potential
high potential high potential

eyeful (high potential frame)
earful (exponential gain)
mouthful (high potential frame)
mindful (exponential gain)
high potential screaming light (this electrolux)
screaming light
screaming light
Track Name: Larvae
I'm sorry if I've been acting strange
But there's tension in the air,
and I don't like change.
I believe I can see a time to come of disarray
And I am in the dark, I am unprepared

"Don't worry, it's all in your head"
That's what the others say to me
from the safety of their armchairs
So I pause for thought, take a walk,
around the inner wilderness
There's something eating me, feeding on my nerves

And under the gorse lie, in hundreds,
the Larvae, waiting...for the day.

When nature will take its course
The season to pupate will be done
Our skin will peel to reveal a termite or a butterfly
which one of these, I can't be sure...

CHORUS repeat

I feel so weary in the haze
I find it hard to carry on
When all around me goes up in flames
Burn the anguish, burn the source
