Lyrics

Disco

Written By: Mr. Feeley and the Touch

Hey little girl, are you thinkin' like me?
We should be bumpin' and grindin' and makin' a scene.
Between drinkin' and dancin' I don't know where I'm at,
But I got the boys at the table I know got my back.

Ooh, you got me feelin like my heart's in a race,
Girl slide on over and we'll pick up the pace.
With the lights in my eyes and my hands on your thighs,
Baby if you're shoppin' try me on for size.

Chorus:
This is a party, get your glasses up.
This is a toast to the girls, now bottoms up.
Bring your bad side, and a little good,
And we'll be gettin down like you know we should.

I'm feelin what I'm seein, And what I'm seein's appealin'.
I hope you know that I'm down with the cards that your dealin.
You can be the Queen and I'll be the Jack,
I hope I'm not around when the King comes back.

Chorus

All You Desire

Written By: Mr. Feeley and the Touch

You're almost always on my mind.
I'm finding it's so hard to define
the reasons why this love I feel,
to me, is real.

Chorus:
My heart is in my hands
and I'd give it to you.
My mind is building bridges,
but you know I'd break them too.
I'm sick of pushing and pulling,
wasting my time.
Give me a reason to feel anything tonight.

Flashing lights won't make you see,
and I've tried everything just to be
in your arms and in your head
but you turn instead.

Chorus

When all you desires in front of your eyes,
five feet away but you keep it inside.

You've seen it before, the look in her eyes.
What does it mean, what will you decide?
Would you give all to see what's inside?
And if so, does she feel anything tonight?

Chorus

Mercury Falls

Written By: Mr. Feeley and the Touch

I awoke when the mercury falls.
Grab the teeth and rip off the jaws
of the beast that's killing peace.
Grab the reigns and kick in the teeth.

Pre-Chorus/Chorus
Standing on cold ground has numbed my feet.
They'll bury us all while we sleep.
How far is too deep?

Will you be there when the dynasty falls?
Stand tall why the ignorant crawl!
See through hypnotic disguises.
We can sleep when the mercury rises.

Pre-Chorus/Chorus

All you ever wanted was a bigger piece of me,
I screamed right in your face but I guess you're just blind to see...
I won't fall silent.

I awoke when the mercury falls.

Rip Out Your Page

Written By: Mr. Feeley and the Touch

All I wanted was a helping hand in being free from harm.
And all I sought was the meaning of love from those we call our own.

Chorus:
Don't be afraid,
I won't spit on your grave.
Don't be afraid,
I won't rip out your page.

Wasted landscapes, no way to escape this hell we call our home.
But can we stand here shaking with fear just to save our souls?

Chorus

Sick and smiling all the while,
You're sick and smiling all the while.

We'll always be stuck in this groove,
aligned like we have something to proove.

Chorus

I was hung out, left to die, the only thing keeping me alive is my...
Hung out, left to die, the only thing keeping me alive is my drive.

Breathe Clean

Written By: Mr. Feeley and the Touch

Broken, all alone.
My world is all in pieces, my world is all in pieces.
I'm drowning now, since I got my heart cut out.
The blood still stains me, and my world is all in pieces.

Feeling like I never did before.
One more hit of this ill shit and I'm face down on the floor.
A memory, is all you are to me.
I turn to the burn now, won't you help me?

Pre-Chorus:
Breathe, breathe clean, breathe.
Won't you help me?

Chorus:
Broken all alone, my world's in pieces.
This house is not a home, without you in it.
I have got a soul but it's trapped in prison.

Inhale, and forget tragedy.
A mispent time when you were mine has come back to haunt me.
Emotion, can twist reality,
but a level head keeps me in stead and I breathe.

Pre-Chorus

Chorus

My world is all in pieces.

The Valley

Written By: Mr. Feeley and the Touch

The sight of this scene has grown old.
Contentment has never seemed so far away.
This valley of the lost souls
is a haven for those who have lost all hope.

Chorus:
Before we roll in I'll tell you first,
the town we come from, this town is cursed.
I'd rather be somewhere else instead, the people here aren't alive or dead.

The grass looked so green from the outside.
So we smoked what we found and were left high and dry.
So many prisoners with false pride.
We're the product of our past and our open-minded lives.

Chorus:
Before we roll in I'll tell you first,
the town we come from, this town is cursed.
(Valley of the lost.)
I'd rather be somewhere else instead, the people here aren't alive or dead.
(Valley of the lost souls.)

Sinking Ships

Written By: Mr. Feeley and the Touch

Sunbleached bone on bloodstained shore, remains for all to see.
Hope and faith and courage would roar, but all were lost at sea.

Pre-Chorus:
The crow's nest warned of fog ahead but hazard seemed unsound.
Had someone shot the blessed gull as fate ran hull aground?

Chorus:
All hands on deck but nothing manned,
the soul never turned the ship,
though sails would sway and masts would stand.
Yet doubt would leave it stripped, it slips from your hands.
Will you ever reach land?

A compass con not guide us now, North isn't always there.
We long ago abondoned map and since became ensnared.

Pre-Chorus

Chorus

It Comes Around

Written By: Mr. Feeley and the Touch

If every painful step to tomorrow means I can take another breath, is it worth my time?
If angels fear to tread, like the fools we are, just rushing to defend our fundamental lies.

If every painful trip to yesterday means I can take another step, is it worth my time?
If angels fear to tread on our foolish ground, I guess we're rushing to pretend we're not a foolish crowd.

It comes around.

Pretend To Offend

Written By: Mr. Feeley and the Touch

Pretend to offend, I don't know what is right.
Slipping through time is like sleeping through night.
Pretend to offend, I don't know who to trust.
Speaking my mind is like tossing up dust.
Pretend to offend, I don't know what is right, what is right.

Chorus:
I can see through this.
You made me see.
This is hit and miss.
Don't make me see.

Round the next bend I don't know where to go.
The passage of life is a trickling flow.
I blow that thought and I try to move on.
An unfinished life is an unfinished song.
Pretend to offend, I don't know what is right, what is right.

Chorus

Pretend to offend, I don't know what is right.
Slipping through time is like sleeping through night.
Pretend to offend, I don't know who to trust.
Speaking my mind is like tossing up dust.
Pretend to offend, I don't know what is right, what is right.

Chorus

Your false face turns my way.

Don't Ask

Written By: Mr. Feeley and the Touch

Should I stay or should I go or should I give in?
Giving 'til I'm gone won't stay the hand that greeds.

Chorus:
Don't ask me how.
Don't ask me how I know.
Don't ask me how I know,
I just do, I just do,
I just do, I just do.

Stranger times are yet to come.
Red-hot bullets from a cold cold gun.

Pre-Chorus:
What started as lies, will turn to trust that's cold as iron, which starts to rust.

Chorus

It's time to see what's gone unsaid.
Valid thoughts burn holes in our heads.

Pre-Chorus

Chorus

You were just used, used and abused.
