Joy Division Gutz

Warsaw!

Don’t talk to me girl – you know it’s not nice

Don’t laugh at murder – I won’t pay the price

The facts are too high-powered – it’s such a big thrill

I’d do it myself, ’cause it makes you so ill

Blame bad things on me, whatever you do

When I come home my world is different from you

You’re such a chic tart – you’re really dressed up

Don’t wanna talk to you – just left with your mum

Don’t be a puppet – always rush you around

One just for your photo – try and tie me down

I won’t tell him I talk like this all night

He must be worried ’cause you’re sounding so trite

Respect is only normal – the way to your lives

Ever tried to sleep around – once I begged for a wife

Wouldn’t have to change you – start acting that way

If we don’t keep our heads alive, I’ll never get a say

You know what’s special – it’s as black as I say

Can you see me, just ourselves – no comment, copycat!

Joy Division Atmosphere

Walk in silence,

Don’t walk away, in silence.

See the danger,

Always danger,

Endless talking,

Life rebuilding,

Don’t walk away.

Walk in silence,

Don’t turn away, in silence.

Your confusion,

My illusion,

Worn like a mask of self-hate,

Confronts and then dies.

Don’t walk away.

People like you find it easy,

Naked to see,

Walking on air.

Hunting by the rivers,

Through the streets,

Every corner abandoned too soon,

Set down with due care.

Don’t walk away, in silence,

Don’t walk away.

Joy Division From Safety To Where…?

No I don’t know just why.

No I don’t know just why.

Which way to turn,

I got this ticket ot use.

Through childlike ways rebellion and crime,

To reach this point and retreat back again.

The broken hearts,

All the wheels that have turned,

The memories scarred and the vision is blurred.

No I don’t know which way,

Don’t know which way to turn,

The best possible use.

Just passing through, ’till we reach the next stage.

But just to where, well it’s all been arranged.

Just passing through but the break must be made.

Should we move on or stay safely away?

Through childlike ways rebellion and crime,

To reach this point and retreat back again.

The broken hearts,

All the wheels that have turned,

The memories scarred and the vision is blurred.

Just passing through, ’till we reach the next stage.

But just to where, well it’s all been arranged.

Just passing through but the break must be made.

Should we move on or stay safely away?

Joy Division The Drawback

Seen the troubles and the evils of this world

I’ve seen the stretches between godliness and sin

I’ve had the promise and confessions of true faith

And the hypocrisy that always lies within

And they left it for you – all of this for you –

I’ve seen the products and the other world of waste

I’ve seen the colour of corruption deep within

I’ve seen them lose themselves in dignity and taste

To see in black and white and through to black again

And they left it for you – all of this for you –

And they left it for you – all of this for you

And they left it for you – everything for you

I’ve seen the troubles and the evils of this world

I’ve seen the ones who can succeed but always lose

I’ve seen what’s left of poor technology and work

And watched them dying as they leave their ship of fools

And they left it for you – all of this for you –

Joy Division Interzone

I walked through the city limits,

Someone talked me in to do it,

Attracted by some force within it,

Had to close my eyes to get close to it,

Around a corner where a prophet lay,

Saw the place where she’d a room to stay,

A wire fence where the children played.

Saw the bed where the body lay,

And I was looking for a friend of mine.

And I had no time to waste.

Yeah, looking for some friends of mine.

The cars screeched hear the sound on dust,

Heard a noise just a car outside,

Metallic blue turned red with rust,

Pulled in close by the building’s side,

In a group all forgotten youth,

Had to think, collect my senses now,

Are turned on to a knife edged view.

Find some places where my friends don’t know,

And I was looking for a friend of mine.

And I had no time to waste.

Yeah, looking for some friends of mine.

Down the dark streets, the houses looked the same,

Getting darker now, faces look the same,

And I walked round and round.

No stomach, torn apart,

Nail me to a train,

Had to think again,

Trying to find a clue, trying to find a way to get out!

Trying to move away, had to move away and keep out.

Four, twelve windows, ten in a row,

Behind a wall, well I looked down low,

The lights shined like a neon show,

Inserted deep felt a warmer glow,

No place to stop, no place to go,

No time to lose, had to keep on going,

I guessed they died some time ago.

I guessed they died some time ago.

And I was looking for a friend of mine.

And I had no time to waste.

Yeah, looking for some friends of mine.

Joy Division Love Will Tear Us Apart

When routine bites hard,

And ambitions are low,

And resentment rides high,

But emotions won’t grow,

And we’re changing our ways,

Taking different roads.

Then love, love will tear us apart again.

Love, love will tear us apart again.

Why is the bedroom so cold?

You’ve turned away on your side.

Is my timing that flawed?

Our respect runs so dry.

Yet there’s still this appeal

That we’ve kept through our lives.

But love, love will tear us apart again.

Love, love will tear us apart again.

You cry out in your sleep,

All my failings exposed.

And there’s a taste in my mouth,

As desperation takes hold.

Just that something so good

Just can’t function no more.

But love, love will tear us apart again.

Love, love will tear us apart again.

Love, love will tear us apart again.

Love, love will tear us apart again.

Joy Division Decades

Here are the young men, the weight on their shoulders,

Here are the young men, well where have they been?

We knocked on the doors of Hell’s darker chamber,

Pushed to the limit, we dragged ourselves in,

Watched from the wings as the scenes were replaying,

We saw ourselves now as we never had seen.

Portrayal of the trauma and degeneration,

The sorrows we suffered and never were free.

Where have they been?

Where have they been?

Where have they been?

Where have they been?

Weary inside, now our heart’s lost forever,

Can’t replace the fear, or the thrill of the chase,

Each ritual showed up the door for our wanderings,

Open then shut, then slammed in our face.

Where have they been?

Where have they been?

Where have they been?

Where have they been?

Joy Division The Eternal

Procession moves on, the shouting is over,

Praise to the glory of loved ones now gone.

Talking aloud as they sit round their tables,

Scattering flowers washed down by the rain.

Stood by the gate at the foot of the garden,

Watching them pass like clouds in the sky,

Try to cry out in the heat of the moment,

Possessed by a fury that burns from inside.

Cry like a child, though these years make me older,

With children my time is so wastefully spent,

A burden to keep, though their inner communion,

Accept like a curse an unlucky deal.

Played by the gate at the foot of the garden,

My view stretches out from the fence to the wall,

No words could explain, no actions determine,

Just watching the trees and the leaves as they fall.

Joy Division Atrocity Exhibition

Asylums with doors open wide,

Where people had paid to see inside,

For entertainment they watch his body twist,

Behind his eyes he says, ‘I still exist.’

This is the way, step inside.

This is the way, step inside…

In arenas he kills for a prize,

Wins a minute to add to his life.

But the sickness is drowned by cries for more,

Pray to God, make it quick, watch him fall.

This is the way, step inside.

This is the way, step inside…

This is the way, step inside.

This is the way, step inside…

You’ll see the horrors of a faraway place,

Meet the architects of law face to face.

See mass murder on a scale you’ve never seen,

And all the ones who try hard to succeed.

This is the way, step inside.

This is the way, step inside…

And I picked on the whims of a thousand or more,

Still pursuing the path that’s been buried for years,

All the dead wood from jungles and cities on fire,

Can’t replace or relate, can’t release or repair,

Take my hand and I’ll show you what was and will be.

Joy Division Heart And Soul

Instincts that can still betray us,

A journey that leads to the sun,

Soulless and bent on destruction,

A struggle between right and wrong.

You take my place in the showdown,

I’ll observe with a pitiful eye,

I’d humbly ask for forgiveness,

A request well beyond you and I.

Heart and soul, one will burn.

Heart and soul, one will burn.

An abyss that laughs at creation,

A circus complete with all fools,

Foundations that lasted the ages,

Then ripped apart at their roots.

Beyond all this good is the terror,

The grip of a mercenary hand,

When savagery turns all good reason,

There’s no turning back, no last stand.

Heart and soul, one will burn.

Heart and soul, one will burn.

Existence well what does it matter?

I exist on the best terms I can.

The past is now part of my future,

The present is well out of hand.

The present is well out of hand.

Heart and soul, one will burn.

Heart and soul, one will burn.

One will burn, one will burn.

Heart and soul, one will burn.
