How does it feel
To treat me like you do
When you've laid your hands upon me
And told me who you are

I thought I was mistaken
I thought I heard your words
Tell me how do I feel
Tell me now how do I feel

How does it feel, how should I feel
Tell me how does it feel, to treat me like you do

Those who came before me
Lived through their vocations
From the past until completion
They will turn away no more

And I still find it so hard
To say what I need to say
But I'm quite sure that you'll tell me
Just how I should feel today

I see a ship in the harbor
I can and shall obey
But if it wasn't for your misfortunes
I'd be a heavenly person today

And I thought I was mistaken
And I thought I heard you speak
Tell me how do I feel
Tell me now how should I feel

Now I stand here waiting...

I thought I told you to leave me
While I walked down to the beach
Tell me how does it feel
When your heart grows cold
(grows cold, grows cold, grows cold)

How does it feel, how should I feel
Tell me how does it feel, to treat me like you do
How does it feel, how should I feel
Tell me how does it feel, to treat me like you do
How does it feel, how should I feel
Tell me how does it feel, to treat me like you do

    General CommentThis song reminded me of when I lived at home with my mom. It seems like our relationship was so much like this. She would bring me down to nothing, tell me exactly how I was to feel/act. I hated the feeling of not having any control over my own life. I would obey what she said, and it seemed like it was still never enough.

    General CommentOne of my favorite orgy songs, and therefore one of my favorite songs. The New Order version is dirt in comparison!

    General CommentThis is about someone with alot of controlling problems and his relationship with them. It doesn't even have to be a g/f, maybe his mother, alot of mothers tend to be that way. I really love this song, and I suggest everyone to go and Download it. AWESOME KICK ASS SONG! Orgy is one of the best bands i've ever heard. You should also download "Slept So Long" by Jay Gordon (of Orgy obviously) just type in the song name, but that is also a kickin ass song. WOAH!

    General CommentThere's really nothing in the song about love. Check out the Music Video.

    A lot of moral fiber as "Monday" in song lyrics stating worst day of
    a unhappy families week. Going be the open spoken guy and say its
    one of these situations with parents, sometimes child feeling
    unloved or out of touch with family. Like the word "obey" appears
    as if parents have to be treated good on all exceptions but being
    said the song is about the child's standpoint.

    There's 2 videos for the Orgy version, the live one and the official
    Orgy music video. Before any suggestions to my comment please check
    the official music video and it has clear view on my idea.

    Beats "Kids in America" song for parenthood though XD

    General CommentTo me it's about a girlfriend who treat him like nothing and use him. He realise this and want to leave her, but it's hard ("And I still find it so hard to say what I need to say").
    A great version of this song. The original is of New Order.
