lyrics

mike townsend has to get out of bed
mike townsend's got the voice in his head
and he can't remove the heavy feeling
and it persists through the morning commute
he's running late, so he texts "i'm en route"
but he can't remove the heavy feeling

and it's the coffee with one sugar
but he wonders where they took her
and the radio comes on and he cannot help but to hear

"they found a way to get her from the shadows,
but we need someone to go to where the map shows"
mike townsend knows what he's gotta do
"if you need respect, then you might just earn some,
it's a journey you might not return from"
mike townsend knows what he's gotta do

the radio's blasting and he's singing along
mike townsend hears his favourite song
but he can't remove the heavy feeling
the static hits when he's nearly there
the null mixing with the waves in the air
and he can't remove the heavy feeling

he downs the coffee with one sugar
and still he wonders where they took her
and the radio comes on and he cannot help but to hear

his hand is hovering at the gate now,
and he's trying to think of a way out,
but he closes his eyes and talks to himself in his head

"they found a way to get her from the shadows,
but they need someone to go to where the map shows,
i'm mike townsend, and i know what to do.
i need respect, and i just might earn some
it's a journey i might not return from,
i'm mike townsend, and i know what to do.
there's a chance that this is the end,
but i know i have to do it if it saves my friend,
i'm mike townsend, and i know what to do.
i can feel my spirit is leaving me,
but i get power from the team, cause they believe in me,
i'm mike townsend, and i know what to do,
i'm a disappointment, i'm a credit to the team,
there's a coldness in my blood, and i know what that means,
i'm mike townsend, and i know what to do,
