You will need to replace the battery.

The iPods are trickier to do than iPhones because they require that you do some desoldering/soldering. Oddly, there doesn't seem to be a battery specific guide for the Touch 5 but you can use this guide and follow the instructions until Step 22.

You will need to order a battery.

Be very careful, these Li-ion batteries, especially when swollen, are fire hazards.
